Such BS !!! We should watch out, maybe cattle farmers will find the MSU or UNO Mavericks bad, or The Gopher Lovers of America will think Minnesota's use is hurtful...

Let's just change all the college names to things like: sweethearts, lovers, sugar drops, sportmanshipers...

I think the solution is obvious. In the face of this travesty by the NCAA the University of North Dakota should show their outrage by withdrawing from the NCAA and shutting down the program. That'll teach 'em! :mad:

Can anyone give me the cliff notes version on the stadium impact? Wasn't there something about not being able to use REA if the name was changed?

I like the idea of going with no nickname.

Hey maybe they should change the name of the state too.
Exactly. I think the names of North Dakota and South Dakota are offensive.

So, how about the North Dakota Dakotans?



Saw some Miami fans with Redskins jerseys at the Frozen Four last night. They should probably change the name of their school too. Miami is hostile and abusive.

I don't know if this has been suggested already, be we've always just called them The Goons, so they could go with that.

The basic impact is no NCAA tourney games there with the name and imagery. Big deal, they don't host them anyway.

I believe the agreement is that changes (i.e. removal of logos, etc.) don't have to be made except in the general course of upkeep/replacement and they have 40 years to do it (or 5 years, I don't know, just thje basics of what I have seen).

Umm.. would the "Custard Killers" be too transparent even with the mascot being a kid devouring an ice cream cone?

or the "Disagreeable Locals"

or maybe just the "Thieving creditors" in honor of the credit card industry.

Are there any NCAA schools with no mascot/nickname? Does the NCAA require one? Maybe a stupid question, but i have never thought about it. I know some schools are just a color (e.g. stanford), but I can't think of any that don't have anything.

Before Dirty posted the direct email addresses, I submitted a comment on the BoHE website. I just got a response back presumably from a staffer there. She said "Thanks for your input, and I agree with you. I will definitely forward this on to the members of the board."

I'm on board with names that are even more offensive.

My vote: North Dakota Fighting Jioux.

The lady has a point. Again.
