Random Nickname Ideas

Recommended Posts

When I see Legion of Doom, I think of Animal and Hawk, The Road Warriors! "What a Rush!" (I think I just dated myself)

That was my era too lol, surprisingly i thought of superman first but they were my favorite tag team back in the day

How about Legion of Doom?

Sounds dumb that's why it shouldn't be picked

Thank you, Darell, for succinctly summing up the reason why any and all replacement names thought of thus far shouldn't be picked.

North Dakota Fighting Legion

Wasn't sure how to upload the photo on the board here... 

The imagery would have to change to Roman this and Roman that.  On the good side, only white Europeans, Christians and Jewish people were largely persecuted by the Romans so we'd be in good standing with the right sect of perennial crybabies.........

Not necessarily would it have to be Roman... could attempt to make it our own "Northern Legion"; "NoDak Legion"... I just think the name has an edge to it and has some conviction which I hope the new nickname carries those traits. I would like for someone who doesn't know about UND to say "they have a badass name and logo." Something worth cheering for.

That's not what I said, I like Oilers, Jets (or something aviation related) and even GS's Arrow idea. Just something other than plain old North Dakota.

AGREED!

Possibility that some "committee" figures this out and gets it right? Good luck!

Loved that Flyers line nickname.

 

That was an awesome name. I could get behind that. :) Even as a Bruins fan.

Don't we have a football player by the name of Grady that can accomplish that? Who needs Chuck Norris?

 

Superman wears "Chuck Norris" pajamas. 

Chuck Norris wears "Elijah Grady" pajamas. 

 

:D

Friendly Sioux?  no longer conjuring a negative stereotype. Already have a ceremony granting the use of "Sioux". how could this be deemed offensive?

1.  The name "Sioux" is what the NCAA has a problem with.  

2.  It doesn't matter what the descriptor in front of "Sioux" is.  

3.  The NCAA and, perhaps more importantly, the Standing Rock tribal council don't care about or acknowledge the 1968 ceremony.  

4.  The NCAA created the "hostile and abusive policy" in 2005.  UND would've been exempt had one reservation given timely approval.  They didn't (both Spirit Lake and Standing Rock refused to answer).  UND would've been exempt had both reservations given approval within five years.  One didn't.  Yes, this fight has been going on with the NCAA for a DECADE.  The fight has been going on with the bleeding hearts within the university for 50+ years.  It's time to move on.

Best weather nickname:  UND Green Storm 

 

Have Tornado Sirens go off during 3rd downs or when the opponent calls a TO on the court after a big run.
