MSU Mankato to North Dakota: We've been there with the mascot


The Minnesota State University – Mankato Reporter explains how the school once grappled with the same offensive-mascot controversy that the University of North Dakota has been dealing with:

Before MSU was the Mavericks with a logo of a purple and yellow bull they were the Indians with a caricature of an Indian as a logo. The school developed the Indian nickname in 1935. In July of 1977, after around 10 years of debate, the name was changed to the Mavericks.
