GRAND FORKS (KFGO-AM) The University of North Dakota could be getting a new nickname by next year.
The Fighting Sioux moniker and logo were retired in June of 2012 in order to comply with an NCAA ruling. One idea that's surfaced is "UND Cavalry." Bill Roswick of Grand Forks has even printed some t-shirts with the name and an image that shows a soldier on a horse, but no official decision has been made.
UND President Robert Kelly says he'll appoint a task force to figure out a new nickname.
