Deseret State University?

Original name that Brigham Young and Co gave to the region.

You’re still DSU.

Trail Blazers still makes sense as a mascot.

Plus, most won't even pick up on the religious connotation - thinking it was just a spelling error.

That’s about as likely as going with Mountain Meadows University and calling the team the Massacre.

Mojave State might be an option though.

RE: Dixie State considering name change
I hope they don't change their name strictly because of current conditions. If their constituents really want to, fine. But they name has historical significance and isn't directly related to anything controversial. It's Dixie because Dixie meant southern, but not "the old south" and all attributed meaning.

Beehive is as much a state as Chicago, Dixie, and Tarleton.
