And apparently the cartel will not appeal the decision...FARGO, N.D. -- The NCAA won't appeal a district judge's decision allowing the University of North Dakota to host a playoff game despite its Fighting Sioux nickname. Judge Lawrence Jahnke's order granting a preliminary injunction was formally released Monday. Attorneys had been notified by e-mail late Saturday, hours before the North Dakota football team was chosen for a home playoff game next weekend. "We're disappointed," NCAA spokesman Chuck Wynne said Monday. "But it's not totally unexpected. "For all practical purposes, there really isn't time (to appeal). UND is going to host a playoff game and they will wear their normal uniforms."
