When the Wranglers played there, road team was on that end.

That's what I looked up before I got my tickets.  It seems odd that UND doesn't take the Wrangler's bench.  It surprises me that a lot of venues, especially hockey venues, have no clue where each team shoots twice when they are selling tickets.  I would bet they are asked that question numerous times, at least I ask it or research it before I get my tickets.  Just disappointed this time that UND did the opposite of what the home team does.

All I can say is that there is confidentiality contracts signed that prohibit the early release of the jerseys. So I honestly do not know what they will look like. I imagine that they will have some reference to the Sioux nickname.

Eventually you may see throwback references to the Sioux name on jerseys.  But not this soon after the debacle.  So I would say it is a long shot.  And by long shot, I mean zero chance of happening.  Some day.

It was explained to me this way:

At the Orleans Arena, the large home team locker room is behind the bench closest to the horseshoe end with all the seats. The team on that bench would then shoot twice at the end with no seats.  Apparently, the Wranglers and the visiting team would come out of their locker rooms and then actually switch benches, so the Wranglers could shoot twice at the horseshoe. 

UND wants to use the home team locker room, and there is no way these teams are going to be allowed to skate out and switch benches.

I wouldn't say zero chance because UND needs to use the logo to keep it's TM licence current. Since it wont be used in a game (only during warm-ups) I could see them using something Sioux related especially with its biggest donors being in Vegas. 

On the other hand, I understand why one would say there is no chance that UND uses it due to UND wanting to move away from the Sioux name all together.

They sell merchandise to keep it current, which they do with the Dacotah Legacy collection. I'm not sure using it on warm-ups constitutes much "use" to that extent.

While it would obviously generate a level of excitement among the crowd, frankly I'd be pretty disappointed if they came out with something that referenced the old name/logo unless it somehow incorporated all of them, including the current one. Even then, I'm not sure how that plays into the settlement because any newly created merchandise with the retired logos needs to have the Dacotah Legacy marks on them.

They could shock everyone and have the words Fighting Hawks with the logo on it.

We almost booked a flight for the Sat morning to Phoenix and rented a car for the 4 hour(i believe) drive. Round trip to phoenix were under $200 cant remember if MSP/OMA/FSD departure tho. I also once looked into spending a few days in LA cheap flights to LAX or surrounding airports and renting a car one way or taking megabus to Vegas

Game has impacted prices from Sioux Falls. 

Grand Forks, Fargo, Minot, Bismarck and Sioux Falls were around double the normal price on Allegiant and they even released flights later than normal. They were well aware of what was going on.

Does anyone know if the team will be wearing Fighting Sioux jerseys for this game? Per NCAA rules, the Hall of Fame game is the only contest UND is allowed to do so. (Historic/throwback uniforms allowed) I have a feeling the university is not taking advantage of this as they don’t want to make any “noise” regarding the nickname. However I think this would be a treat for the fans and the current players to experience a real Sioux vs Gophers rivalry. The arena would go nuts if the team came out of the tunnel properly attired! 

OMG PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

We ended up getting our flight, hotel (3 nights @ TI) & round trip airport shuttle package for $400 per person, back when we booked in April. Since there was a question about current options & prices so just wanted to show what most recent prices via Omaha are looking like...at least on Frontier.

Not to be a downer but ... if they toss a couple more stinkers against purple cow.... some fair weathers may think twice about dropping a few grand on a weekend in Vegas and dump tix cheap.  

Kinda what I’m counting on,  wasn’t going o go due to other plans so gave tix away, now if I can get em cheap....
