Univ. Of Utah Will Keep Utes Nickname, Drum And Feather Logo
Published January 6, 2012
MASSIVE REBRANDING: The Univ. of North Dakota last Friday announced that the "rebranding of several organizations" is a result of the "retirement of the Fighting Sioux nickname and logo." The GRAND FORKS HERALD reported the university's varsity athletics teams will "operate without an official nickname or corresponding logo until at least Jan. 1, 2015, as mandated by the North Dakota State Legislature." The Fighting Sioux Sports Network on TV has been "renamed the UND Sports Network, and the Fighting Sioux Radio Network has been renamed the UND Radio Network." The university's official website, FightingSioux.com, has been "renamed UNDSports.com" (GRAND FORKS HERALD, 12/31).
