The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have picked a fight with Kansas High School for using their mascot. Chapman Highschool has been using the Fighting Irish mascot since 1967, until the university sent them a cease and desist letter threatening legal action.
Chapman high principal Kevin Suther said, “Well when you get a letter from Notre Dame it gets your attention… For anything like stationary and school uniforms as long as its Chapman Fighting Irish, we are still the Fighting Irish.”
Chapman is still allowed to be the Fighting Irish but must change their mascot to be different than the Notre Dame leprechaun. The high school is used to change in the summer of 2008, the high school and town was destroyed by a tornado.
