HOME OF THE ??? For the first time, the University of North Dakota hockey players will take the ice this season without the well-known Fighting Sioux logo and name on their jerseys. That's because UND?is technically no longer the home of the Fighting Sioux, after several years of controversy over the nickname and logo ended with an agreement to remove the Fighting Sioux from jerseys and other items. The NCAA, which years ago deemed the nickname "hostile and abusive," is allowing thousands of Sioux logos to remain at the Ralph Engelstad Arena, although the logo at center ice has been removed. Hockey will still be hockey, however, no matter that UND?teams don't really have a nickname at the moment. In the minds of many fans, the Ralph Engelstad Arena will always be the home of the Fighting Sioux, and not even an official name change will change that for them.
