Things are slow around here.

Some team names are deemed inappropriate in this new era of awareness. "The Donkeys" is a moniker that is a perfect replacement.

Instead of "The Fighting Sioux," why not consider "The Fighting Donkeys" (ahem, "The Fighting [email protected]")?

In the right context, I could see "Mules" working as a nickname/mascot. Mules are hard-working and feisty.

It's attack move could be the Donkey Punch.

Not sure why, but I watched until the end.

The donkey; a smart, snarky but stupid-looking and sounding animal.

I would not be against, eg, a donkey bray accompanying Bielema‘s photo on the score board.

Don't discount the Jackass. They are friendly and loyal to friends, and mean as hell to outsiders. My in-laws in Northern MN have a donkey to protect their cattle/calf herd. I thought it sounded weird, but there have been no coyote or wolf issues since it joined the herd.

I saw someone riding their donkey down the sidewalk yesterday, coincidentally.

I oppose this change because I don’t want this forum to be renamed Donkey Hole. Also, because of how speech works, this will lead Dinkytown gradually to morph into Donkey Town.
I don't care if it is called Donkey Town when the Gophers can kick @ss and win Big Ten Titles. They can bray all they want if they can donkey punch Iowa and Wisconsin regularly.

Dinkytown could be renamed The Burro.

Anything other than a bucked tooth rodent would help recruiting! What kid would rather be a gopher than a Hawkeye or Wolverine or Spartan etc etc
