LETTER: 'UND Sundogs' shines as nickname choice

Who has determined that a "majority" want the UND athletic teams to be called UND No Name?

Personally, I like Sundogs. We in North Dakota know that we see sundogs in our wide open sky. And for a mascot, we could have a strong, intelligent dog named "Sunny."

We are surrounded by bison, timberwolves, gophers, grizzlies, bobcats and so on. Sundogs would be a dignified mascot, not an ugly, sneering animal baring its teeth.
