Where did they come up with the name and Logo/mascot?

What does the the F-117 have to do with Omaha? It only comes here once a year for the air show and that is in Bellevue. Offut does not have any stationed there, never did.

Someone please explain........

The coach says, "I know people wanted a name that is dynamic and has a regional connection and I believe that is what we have. Now I can't wait to get started playing some exciting football for the fans here in Omaha."

The Nighthawks name encompasses several interpretations. The F-117 Nighthawks is more commonly known as the stealth fighter jet and similar aviation names proved popular with fans in the naming process. The Nighthawk is a bird of prey also known as a bull bat or Bugeater – the original nickname of the University of Nebraska. Nighthawk is also a term used to describe a cowboy who watches his herd while fending off predators and can be associated with a vibrant member of a city's nightlife.

I could be wrong, of course, but I think they picked that name because they liked it.

Just another team that will go by the wayside in about 3-4 years.

He's just here to stir the pot. Signs in under 2 or 3 other usernames.

Pretty predictable.

Different names. Same inane nonsense.

Having Ted Sundquist on staff severely dampened by enthusiasm for this team. Still not sure what I think of Jagodzinski.
