It is finally over. After years of debate and arguments, the University of North Dakota has picked a new nickname.

The search narrowed the list down to two nicknames. UND was going to be known as the Fighting Hawks or the Roughriders. The winner?

The University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks. While the team has the nickname, it appears that a logo has not yet been developed.

The search for a new nickname started with over 8,000 suggestions. A search firm narrowed it down to two, with a final vote to decide the new name.

What are your thoughts of the new nickname?
