Random Nickname Ideas

Best weather nickname: UND Green Storm

Have Tornado Sirens go off...when the opponent calls a TO on the court after a big run.

But why would they call a TO and stifle their own momentum? Oh, you mean NORTH DAKOTA (the men) might actually go on a run...

"L'Etoile du nord" (Star of the North, aka North Star) is the State motto of ... Minnesota.

 

As I've said, why not be the "Rushmores" ... stealing the motto of "The Mount Rushmore State", South Dakota.

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. 

 

So, steal the St. John's (NY) model: Red Men Storm

Wow, that didn't take long. :p:silly:

 

Seriously, I just want a name that will give us a solid identity, is marketable and will stand the test of time.

Or maybe just go with $hit Storm.... It aptly describes the transition to a new name.

It would be offensive to the NCAA if it didn't have the $ sign in it.

Cue the dictionary nerds in three...two...one... :whistling:

Seriously, fs4l, is it that hard to understand? It's the same reason parents don't name there kids Jack Jackson, Eric Ericson, or Martin Martin. Is it THAT complicated?

Let's try this:

Southern Utah University Southern Utes

University of North Carolina North Heels

University of of South Florida South Bulls

Do any of those sound dumb? Because they are.

You guys are missing the joke. It seems the only ones "making a run" on the court (at least in the men's games) are the teams wearing the road uniforms.

Obviously you don't remember the letter to the editor from John Johnson that was promptly rebutted by David Davidson! :D  :whistling:  :p  ;)

This is a horrible example...please find better university nicknames with an actual logical name to compare to.

 

At least North Stars is an actual symbol versus Southern Utes, North Heels and South Bulls...you wouldn't use South Stars as that is not an existing symbol.

 

There would be nothing wrong with using North Stars...its simply yours, Sicatoka's and maybe a few others opinions that think it couldn't work.

 

As I've stated before...I don't care if Minnesota is the North Star state or used the name before...it's not in use anymore and would be fair game IMO
