The UND track team is the first team to suffer as a result of the University of North Dakota resuming use of the Fighting Sioux nickname. Someone posted the link to this Associated Press article over on Sioux Sports this morning.

IOWA CITY — The University of Iowa has decided not to invite the University of North Dakota to an April track meet because of the school’s Fighting Sioux nickname.

Associate athletic director Mark Abbott Monday said Iowa decided against the invitation when UND reinstated the name earlier this month.

Iowa policy prohibits the athletic department from scheduling competitions with schools or attending tournaments hosted by schools using Native American mascots, unless those mascots are approved by the NCAA.

So where are we going from here?

NHL on the Fly’s Trade Deadline Special was right when it said that the major news was the trade that didn’t happen.

Rick Nash wasn’t traded. He’s the latest Joe Thornton, it appears. Apparently he was to be traded to the New York Rangers but the price was too high (which anyone could have told you that. Rick Nash IS the Blue Jackets. Without him, you basically have no team).

There were some intriguing trades though.

What do you all think of the Wild’s trades? They acquire Steve Kampfer and Tom Gilbert for Greg Zanon and Nick Schultz. So, this probably means that Schultz and Zanon were UFAs after the season, right? Perhaps Gilbert and Kampfer were under contract a bit longer? Kampfer is alright and Gilbert is too, but this seems to be a lateral trade rather than an upgrade. They didn’t even get any picks.

The @injuryninja visited the Boston Bruins again as both Joe Corvo and Johnny Boychuck left the game on Saturday night after big hits. The Chris Neil hit on Johnny Boychuck was clean, the Kyle Turris hit on Corvo was a dirty hit that warranted supplemental discipline from the NHL.

True to form the Senior VP of Player Safety and Hockey Operations Brendan Shanahan did nothing again and proved that he is no better than the guy that preceded him. Hell, let’s bring back the Colin Campbell Wheel of Justice.

If we learned anything from Shanahan this season,
