North Dakota attorney general said UND nickname deadline could be pushed backed
North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem is suggesting the state push back the deadline for UND's Fighting Sioux nickname past Oct. 1.
"I hope they do push back that deadline," he said. "The purpose of that settlement that we reached with the NCAA was designed to assure the tribes that they would have an opportunity to voice their opinions on the use of the nickname."
