UND Faces Penalties From NCAA
When my cousin married several years back believe it or not, her cake had this logo on it. This is a very controversial topic for any UND fan. An NCAA executive says the University of North Dakota will face penalties for continuing to use its Fighting Sioux nickname and American Indian head logo.
Executive vice president Bernard Franklin says a new North Dakota law that requires the university to use the nickname and logo doesn’t change NCAA policy.
The policy says the nickname and logo are hostile and abusive.
UND won’t be allowed to host NCAA postseason tournament games, and its teams won’t be allowed to wear the name and logo on their uniforms in postseason events.
Franklin’s statements were included in a letter to UND President Robert Kelley that was obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.
