A conservative blog that has championed efforts to save UND’s Fighting Sioux nickname alleges in a blog posting today that UND officials and others deliberately misled the North Dakota Legislature about UND’s status within the Big Sky Conference and how the fight over the nickname could affect that status.Don't read the article unless you are a glutton for nickname punishment, but if there was any doubt that people are upset about changing the nickname, there shouldn't be. It is a hot issue up there. I know, having lived there for years!
Hopefully the school will simply go with The University of North Dakota. No new nickname. I think that is what would appease the most folks.
