Will there be more Roughrider votes this time around that are "anti Fighting Hawks" votes?  Sure there are some that don't like wither name.  But not voting will most likely result in Fighting Hawks being the new nickname.  Curios to see if the voting numbers go up!

Both are so bad and/or uninspiring.  I guess RR may have my vote.  Better be a damn good logo.

Was a nodak supporter for first two votes. Then a hawk supporter but just now voted for riders. Just couldn't vote for the hawks. Will be proud of either and hope everyone else will be too.

I'm proud to be a UND grad and will support whichever nickname. I may not like it, but I'll sure as heck support them.

I voted Riders.

Is the third time a charm?  Voted RR again.

Roll Ridas!

Just Voted.  I wouldn't say it was a coin toss, but just as well could have been.  I voted for Roughriders, even though I think that Hawks has better possibilities for logos.

I disagree. I think a hawk logo, you're stuck with a hawk logo.

Roughriders leaves it more open ended.

Just voted Roughriders for the third time.

I can live with either one, but it is clear which one better reflects the criteria the Committee set forth.

Go Riders Go!

Wow.  Crazy numbers.  Currently 31-4 for Roughriders?  So where are all these Fighting Hawks votes coming from?  Definitely not from those on this site!!

The survey on this site has been always leaning towards Roughriders. Nodaks did make a push here on the last one though.

People that don't know what the nicknames of North Dakota are.

People who think the "Blackhawk hawk Maplesoft hawks" logo will be used at UND.

People who think that UND only represents Grand Forks.

and people that know the results of this poll are irrelevant, so they don't bother.

$100 on fighting Hawks.  Any takers?

You know, there are a lot of GF folks that are now voting RR.  Pretty much everyone I have spoken too excluding current students (which truly doesn't reflect the folks that have always lived there).  That last comment appears rather unintelligent.

And I've spoken to a bunch that say otherwise too and let me know there is already a Roughriders in GF and it'd be stupid to have another.

It's hard to deny it something people consider when considering which one to vote for.

I would guess a large majority are students and faculty of UND.

I think the tide may be turning on that now that the choice is between Fighting Hawks and Roughriders. Which gives me even more ammo to my theory that Kelley was trying to help Fighting Hawks win when he let Nodaks survive the initial round of voting despite finishing 3rd.

The students should be seeing the hawk logo statements being made by UND that are posted in the GF Herald, Dakota Student and also on Facebook.

Roughriders once again.  Will support whatever it happens to be.  Wish I could write in Fighting Norsemen or Roughnecks.
