(WDAZ-TV) - The leader of the petition drive aimed at putting the Fighting Sioux nickname and logo into North Dakota's constitution says the Big Sky commissioner is spreading "deception and half-truths" about potential consequences for UND.

Assistant Big Sky Commissioner Jon Kasper says the Big Sky has not lost any institutions during a period of conference transition, and has actually added two schools for all sports, and two others for football.

Frank Black Cloud said Wednesday that Big Sky Commissioner Doug Fullerton was spreading "deception and half-truths" about potential consequences for UND.

Black Cloud says Fullerton's words are "designed to scare and create fear" and are "strong words from a man who is the commissioner of a struggling DI conference."
