The problem is not the logo - the problem is the name.  

This is a big part of it, they were already hamstrung on what they were working with. On top of that, all the focus groups were very clear to SME that the new logo not be a cartoon, be clean/simple and have some sort of determination type look. This input was pretty much a consensus from every stakeholder group.

We somehow got a hawk logo that is easily identifiable as UND's, and not anyone else's, logo.  It isn't "just another bird," but now people are calling for UND to switch to "just another bird" logo.  I don't get it.

Yea, you're either going to piss off the people that live in the real world or you're going to offend someone and hurt their feelings which the real world doesn't care if it does anyways because it's the real f'n world!

I'm offended by that statement, Emerald joker.  I demand an immediate retraction and apology.  I'm not sure why, but I do.  I'll be in my safe space awaiting your PM.

Lol, no I got plenty of that thanks, My first loyalty will always be to UND, but I have a Lot of love for Minnesota State. MNSU gave me the opportunity to earn my Masters and grow academically. If it weren't for my time at Minnesota State I wouldn't be working and living abroad now.

Did you see Tim Jackman is back there finishing his college degree and also on the coaching staff?

Cool stuff.

Tom Clifford: he didn't get signed agreements with the tribes and had the best relationships.

No. No ... 

Leigh Jeanotte, rabble-rouser-supreme.

No. No ... 

The NCAA. 

No. No ... 

Wayne Stenehjem? Bob Kelley? The Standing Rock and Spirit Lake tribes? 

I'm through trying to fix the blame (because there's more than enough to go around). 

Speaking of Jeanotte

Good riddance

Have dealt with many, many individuals at UND over the years. He was easily the biggest tool I ever came across at UND.  UND is a much better place now that his racist a** is off campus!!!  He was UND's version of Jesse Jackson.

Not gonna lie... I always assumed Leigh was a female.... Oops

maybe just identifies as one. That is what you get for assuming someone's gender these days.

To bump an old story... in these times without sports competition...

funny how the imagery is offensive when it’s UND’s nickname and logo, but the removal of the image from the DOT signage is lamented by Standing Rock, et al.

again, an old story... but tired of all the coronavirus self-quarantining.


"It's a mistake to end the signs in 2016, especially when we're inducting this man in to the Native American Hall of Honor. It sends a double message for the state of North Dakota," says LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, tribal historian.”

Thanks for posting that.  Not all of us out-of-staters are aware of news like this.

I’m out of state too. Just remember something about that being posted before.

thought it might be something other than coronavirus to talk about.

In short, stripping logos off of hockey jerseys = good.  Stripping them off of road signs = bad.

Makes perfect sense.

Logos on highway signs = good. Honors Native Americans

logos on athletic uniforms = bad. Chippewa (L Jeanotte) feel disrespected

Lived in Bismarck for 4 years toward the end of the “controversy”. Worked with a Sioux lady and another who was married to a Sioux man. Neither of them thought the Sioux logo was disrespectful. The young Sioux in town often could be seen wearing the Brien logo, they obviously did not feel it was disrespectful. But, I did not meet Ron HNIThunder. ;)

I just think it is ‘interesting’ that the spearhead of the movement to remove the name and logo was a Chippewa.
