Change it to the Fighting Sue and have a lawyer as the logo.
Just take a dozen or so of the local Sioux and lock them in a room with the NCAA ruling committee.
See who comes out.
Be a breath of fresh air.

Better change the state name then too, Dakota (from Lakota) is the Indian name for their tribe.

Don't you get tired of the perennial offended in this country...I sure do..busy bodies, nosy nannies and plain old fascists...
This is not what it appears to be. The Spirt Lake Tribe has sued the NCAA to keep
the UND Fighting Sioux nickname. Unfortunately that lawsuit will take years to resolve. Another branch of the Sioux at Standing Rock wants the logo retired.
Without the legislation (which reverses action it took earlier this year) the NCAA will revoke the UND's ability to schedule opponents and compete in intercollegiate sports. The bill was amended to require the school wait until 2015 to chose a new logo. (I guess in the meantime they will be known as the "Fighting Nothings"?)

Have American Indians become a bunch of whiny wimps?
