There is nothing wrong with the Fighting Sioux nickname. Most people, including the native population, like the name. It's a few PC zealots that got this ball rolling, and it's about time for the legislature to fix it. If the NCAA says anything, sue the pants off of them. The NCAA needs to demand the change in the Florida State Seminoles (sp?), and even the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, if they want to remain consistent. Since there is no move to change all of the other names in the NCAA, don't let them walk all over UDN. Fight On Sioux!!
