    Is this going to stoke the controversy between UND and the NCAA over the removal of the Fighting Sioux mascot name?

  3. Go Fighting Sioux! says:

    I’ve always loved the moniker “Fighting Sioux.” It symbolizes pride, bravery, skill, determination, tenacity, and all things positive … gives me goosebumps to this very day!

    I hope they never lose the name … too much tradition would be lost with it.

      Never mind that Sioux is the French spelling of a Dakota word meaning “snake in the grass”. Boy oh boy is that ever something to give one goosebumps. What a tribute to the Lakota people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      As an alumni (1967), I totally agree. The term “Fighting Sioux” is a very noble name and it saddens me to see the attacks on the university. What was heartening was the instant lawsuit by one of the Dakota tribes that they needed to preserve the Fighting Sioux name. That tribe was obviously proud of the moniker, too.

    Maybe they should come to the X in St.Paul and fix the holes their classless fans punched in walls after their loss to Michigan.
