    U of Iowa Refuses to Schedule North Dakota

    Heard on (1600am) that The University of Iowa has announced that the Iowa track team can NOT schedule the University of North Dakota for a track meet. This is due to their mascot (The Fighting Sioux) that is not recognized by the NCAA.

    For those of you wondering, Iowa can still face the Illini because they are contractually obligated through the Big1G Conference.

    Would be interested to get Sioux34's take on this.

    Does the UI have any policy against Tornados or other natural disasters?

    Well that is interesting since the Hawkeye state is named after the blackhawk indians and various tribes or was it chief blackhawk of the Ioway indians.

    If degree of political correctness could somehow be classified as a sport, the University of Iowa would be a national powerhouse.

    Why do we play Iowa State? That school is offensive to everyone.

    They were talking about the Hawkeye name on the B&B show. The nickname, Hawkeyes came from a character from the Last of the Mohicians.

    I thought we were named after that one guy on M.A.S.H.!?

    Seriously though, what a joke. MoseSchrute nailed it. PC is definitely ruining this country.

    Go Hawkeyes. Go Eagles. Go Cubs. Go UNI Panthers (except when they're playing the Hawks, of course).

    How did Iowa hawkeyes get their team name?

    The team name for the University of Iowa, being the largest and first recognized public college in the state of Iowa is based on the state nickname of the "Hawkeye State" which was first suggested by James G. Edwars as a tribute to Indian Chief Black Hawk.
