NCAA Still Using Controversial UND Fighting Sioux Logo

A reader sends in this picture of the NCAA Regional Hockey Tournament program, which not only gets the university name wrong (it’s University of North Dakota) it also features the controversial Fighting Sioux logo:

After sanctimoniously declaring the logo “hostile and abusive” and pushing the State of North Dakota into a protracted legal and political battle that lasted for years (which included the NCAA steamrolling an actual Sioux tribe which wanted to keep the nickname and logo), it’s nice to know that the NCAA is still using it.

It’s nice to know they’re still oh-so-sensitive to those supposedly offended by the logo.
