Move over Miami: More Red Hawks on the western horizon?

Could Miami University have company as the RedHawks?

A website called reports Red Hawks is among the finalists for the name of the soon-to-exist NHL expansion team in Las Vegas.

Other candidates reportedly include Desert Hawks and Nighthawks.

Is this an homage to the recent success of the college hockey team in southwest Ohio? Probably not, but it’s cool to think about it that way.

We’re partial to Nighthawks, by the way. It just seems fitting for a town where staying up late is a prerequisite. But nobody asked us.
