North Dakota has a new nickname; what do you think of Fighting Hawks?

North Dakota, formerly known as the Fighting Sioux, has settled on a new nickname — Fighting Hawks — following three rounds of online voting.

Since being forced to retire its Fighting Sioux logo the school held the votes this fall to find a new nickname. The first vote was between five choices — Nodaks, Fighting Hawks, Roughriders, North Stars and Sun Dogs. The lack of a clear winner forced a second vote between Nodaks, Fighting Hawks and Roughriders.
