It has been debated back and forth, over and over, for a very long time but apparently the end has officially come. Earlier today I received the email below and just thought I would pass it along...
I would like to give you an update on University of North Dakota Athletics and the continued use of the Fighting Sioux nickname and logo.
As of January 1, 2012, UND will no longer use either the Fighting Sioux nickname or logo.
As of that date, please only refer to our athletic teams as the University of North Dakota and please use the interlocking ND logo as the official logo of the UND Athletics Department.
If you could please pass this along to all conference membership, it would be greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Have a great day.
Sean M. Johnson
Senior Associate Athletics Director
University of North Dakota
