I was searching just the other day for some update on the new mascot for UND, to replace the "Fighting Sioux." I was unable to find anything.
Now, from Palm Beach (yes, that one, Florida).
There are 121 pages of suggested names that made the cut (the list includes the reasons for the suggested names).
In addition, 321 pages of rejected names. My favorite paragraph in the story:
Also on the rejected list: "Bouncing Honkers," "Tator Tots," "Bison" (the mascot of UND's fierce rival in Fargo, North Dakota State), "Bush did 911," and the most creative backing of Sioux, "abcdefghjklmnpqrtvwyz," because "the letters s, i, o, u, and x have deleted from the alphabet because we are not the sioux."
