    That's a great letter. The comparisons to Florida State are a fair point.

    What does the constitution say about seceding from the NCAA?

    The key paragraph in the whole letter is this:

    The rest is just filler.

    And here's something that stands out to me: "(1) (which still stands despite repeated attempts by the NCAA staff itself and other nickname opponents to ask the Tribal Council to rescind its resolution)"

    I leave it to reporters who cover the NCAA to bring this hypocrisy into the public spotlight.

    Let's go sue,

    and

    Let's go Sioux!

    The state that once was the third-most powerful nation in the world (had it seceeded) will not be intimidated!

    It would be nice to see the NCAA get knocked down for this... Howmany people would be doing the happy dance to see Miles Bland -- hell, political correctness everywhere -- get trumped

    I hope UND kicks their ass. The comment about 'self-righteousness' is particularly apt. The NCAA is the biggest bunch of self-righteous, self-aggrandizing, pocket-lining blowhards in sports, edging out the IOC, of course.

    I'm with North Dakota.

    Speaking of lawsuits, I'm surprised Notre Dame hasn't sued North Dakota for using the interlocking "ND" on the Sioux's hockey jerseys.
