UND disapproves of depth chart cover showing Texas Tech mascots chasing American Indian


On the cover of a depth chart that went out to a select audience at the UND-Texas Tech University game this past weekend were five characters: Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach, Chancellor Kent Hance and Texas Tech’s mascots the Masked Raider and Raider Red, all chasing an American Indian on a horse running scared. In the context of the ongoing debate over the University of North Dakota’s Fighting Sioux nickname, which some believe is racist, any Indian caricature becomes a loaded image.
