*Pages and pages of

Fighting Sioux - "We're Fighting Back"*

I see the GamerGate crowd found something else to get mad and harassing about.

My ties to the school and reasons "it would be a kick in the nuts" are my dad is an alumni, my mother is an alumni, I'm an alumni and played on golf scholarship, and I also have a sister there now.

I don't know what your field of study was, but it definitely wasn't English. ?

Those lists are one of the funniest things I have read. Can't believe they actually posted every response they got.

Best part is, we can all update our resumes. "Published by und.edu"

There's also an idea for the next GTOV:

(University of North Dakota) "Sharks with Lasers- You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads!"

And a fantastic one that slipped through onto the consideration list:

"Sinking Ship- The athletic department is a sinking ship, anchored down by the hockey program"

EDIT: "Xiphactinus" was left without comment, and made the consideration list.

I have to wonder how accurate this is, but what else could it be?

Not sure why "anal seepage" and "big dicks" didn't make the consideration list. (I only made it to the Bs haha) You'd think they would've at least filtered that doc before releasing it.

Yeah, I'm pretty blown away by what they released. I understand the desire to release every single suggestion....but some are just downright crazy to think they're including them.

Given the fact that anyone with internet access could submit a nickname, it was a near-certainty that plenty of fans of rival teams would submit their choices for a name. All submissions were published to as to be transparent. Many of those nicknames, no doubt, come from NDSU Bison and Minnesota Golden Gopher fans.

DAE think the Flood Fighters suggestion might actually be pretty decent? "Flood fighting" is a phrase that is used in the state, plus it keeps the "fight" element of the nickname which I think is pretty classy. At the same time, Flood Fighters sounds like the local plumbing company that you hire to fix your sink when it starts to leak. It also looks like "Foo Fighters," and some will argue it sounds like a minor league team. I think it's an interesting name at least.
