North Dakota wants your help picking a new nickname

North Dakota

North Dakota has been the Fighting Sioux since 1930. But not anymore. Despite an entire mountain of controversy, the NCAA has forced North Dakota to change its nickname to something less "native."

And now they want your help. North Dakota is soliciting help throughout the entire month of April in finding a new moniker. If history is any indication the new nickname will have "Green" involved, following the footsteps of similar nickname-changers Stanford (Cardinal), Marquette (Golden Eagles) and St. John's (Red Storm).

The folks at Reddit have a suggestion that we think won't make it past the first round of cuts.

If you're so inclined, please join me in creating a groundswell to honor the immortal mid-90's Disney classic by dubbing North Dakota the Big Green.
