North Dakota Gov. Urges Fighting Sioux Nickname Change After NCAA Meeting
Published August 15, 2011
TIME FOR A NAME CHANGE: A GRAND FORKS HERALD editorial stated the North Dakota law commanding UND to keep the Fighting Sioux nickname was a "last-ditch effort against long odds to get the NCAA to change its mind," but "it failed." The "cost of keeping the Fighting Sioux name is too great." UND "risks losing a landmark Division I conference affiliation as well as the chance to play Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and other schools that would boycott" the Fighting Sioux. The sanctions "dramatically threaten UND’s prospects and health" (GRAND FORKS HERALD, 8/14).
