Good News

Well, here's something I can finally feel good about today:

University of North Dakota athletic director Tom Buning says a weekend court ruling that allows UND to hold a football playoff game without dropping its Fighting Sioux nickname came just as the playoffs were about to be scheduled.

Attorneys were notified of Judge Lawrence Jahnke's ruling Saturday night, hours before the playoff pairings were announced. The NCAA had banned UND from playing at home because of its Fighting Sioux nickname, but the school asked for a court order to put the ban on hold until the case was resolved.

If only my alma mater's Board of Trustee's had the intestinal fortitude of the folks who lead the University of North Dakota.
