Sioux Nickname Stands.. For Now

Posted by: ron

A district judge issued a preliminary injunction against the NCAA last night, which prevents the NCAA from moving the location of a post-season playoff game. The UND Football team is currently 9-1 and would likely have home field advantage in the Division II Football Tournament. The new rules regarding American Indian nicknames that the NCAA deems offensive preventa those teams from hosting post-season tournaments or using their nicknames on the road during the playoffs.

Obviously this carries over to hockey as well, but it’s interesting to see that Division II football led to this quick injunction, especially since the case is scheduled to go to trial on April 24th.
