ND students show their preference for Nodaks Saturday night in Grand Rapids
After a flurry of lawsuits and campaigning, the University of North Dakota nickname voting started yesterday, Monday, and will continue until Friday the 23rd. Alumni, staff and ticket holders are voting. Participants will vote for one of the following options:
- Fighting Hawks
- North Stars
At last Saturday night's hockey game, the student section showed their support for Nodaks by flying a Nodak flag, a desecrated version of the American flag, and were supported in a tweet from the hockey coach, Brad Berry. The ND hockey blog, Goons World, made a furious effort in the final days to stop surging Sundogs nickname as an option.
70% of students preferred the option to have 'North Dakota' added as an option but it was turned down by the school president. Nodaks is apparently the next best thing. LetsGoDU looked earlier at what the Nodak graphics might look like:
