I see nothing wrong with keeping the Fighting Sioux nickname. UND wants it, the alumni want it, the students want it, and the native tribes don't seem to have any strong objection. Let UND make its own decision--don't have it forced on them by the Legislature. The issue is who gets to decide. Legislators deciding in a right-wing anti-PC snit that the U may not change its name are acting like a bunch of children.<quoted text>
You forgot to mention that 98% of UND Alumni polled want the name "Fighting Sioux" to remain. One of the two Sioux tribes has approved of keeping the name "Fighting Sioux", the other Sioux tribe just has not voted yes or no regarding this issue. Only the P.C. Crowd at the UND are still pushing the name change. "F" the NCAA, they don't dis-approve of other colleges with native american mascots! And last but not least you are " **** "uming UND/State will lose the lawsuit. "F" Political Correctness!!!!
Yes, I am assuming UND would lose the suit (that thing with "a$$" uming--clever!!! I haven't seen anything that witty since third grade!). The NCAA is a private organization and, rightly or wrongly, gets to dictatae who participates in its activities. Frankly, I think the University has more important things to worry about than sports, but then, I must be one of those elitists who think a university is supposed to educate students.
