My grandmother was, what we would today call, a Flickertail Forever (may she RIP) and never liked the Sioux nickname for UND. Called it a "simmering pot of stew."

Grandma was wise beyond her years.

So when are we finally going to see this new mascot?  I thought for sure that it would be this weekend at the Homecoming game.  Anyone heard any news about when they plan to unveil it?

UND fans will get their first look at the new Fighting Hawk mascot at Saturday’s Potato Bowl-and-homecoming football game.

But for now, it will be a Hawk with no name

I went to the Alerus to see the hawk with no name...     no french fries because of the rain...   Bah da bah buh buh bah... 

 

  I'll show myself out....

Sack City was alive and well... sent the Bengals back to hell.

Bubba, better win the next game. 'Cause if not, the fans will be quite profane.

La, la, la, la-la-la-la, la, la, la.  La, la, la-la-la-la, la, la, la.

I went to the Al to see the war birds
And saw the new mascot without any words
 on the back of his jersey the new bird had no name
Yet some fans in the stands found his presence profane
Because they locked an a warp, in a time, in the past
Where they live with an S word and a logo, can't last.
That name, that thing flipped over, gone to the negs
on the PR and the perceive scale to which everyone pegs 
the image in the world.
So Ben got rolled up the and white hawk unfurled 
and Bubba embraced and said it to the world
So that day has come, the new birds take flight
And I watch those Fighting Hawks show off
that North Dakota Might.

Why do I get the feeling that if/when the students vote on a name, it's going to be "Hawkey."  I mean, it's not horrible but seems like they would want a name that is all sports inclusive instead of a name that makes you think of only one sport at UND.  

I can see them naming it something like Screech, or Greeny (more reference to the color than ESPN’s Mike Greenberg).
