That's one of my favorite cartoons. My 11-year-old daughter loves it, too.

Somebody had it right, I was trolling! But I have to say I am a bit surprised by the total lack of appetite for bringing up the conversation again, and I am totally on board with that.  Now would somebody please tell the fans at the hockey games to let it go also?

Don't thing anyone can get the Sioux Nickname back.  I also don't think it should come back.  That ship has sailed.  However, I do believe retiring the Fighting Hawk name and logo is in the best interest of the university.  It has and been embraced and is and the main cause of the division among the fan base.  Go back to just being THE University of North Dakota and the interlocking ND.  Maybe down the road one day another nickname can be agreed upon, but now is the the time.

Your right forcing the fighting hawks name is working so well

As far as being just 4 years old I think it’s a good start...outside the REA.

So what happens when the next nickname vote doesn’t go the way you wanted it to?

Going to just North Dakota would be the correct choice.

But that just leads to "green and white" and other abominations. Unofficial nicknames are no better than bad ones.

Could we really trust UND to run the process again?  We all know how well they did last time.....

Well the Hawkzi bat signal was turned on... somebody somewhere typed "Fighting Sioux" on an internet forumn....

That triggers a mad dash to their accounts to stamp out injustice and free thought and enforce the agenda.

At least no nickname and just UND is unique which is > the postal code and white dove.

The other programs, besides the hockey team have embraced and accepted the Fighting Hawks nickname. Check out the tweets when Football players and Basketball players commit to UND. The University is marketing the nickname. It’s not going to change. At some point there may be a tweak to the logo.
