GeauxSioux Posted June 27, 2016 Share Posted June 27, 2016 I was paging through the 100 years of UND basketball publication and tried to find where UND used a logo in the past. I have pictures of my dad in the 1950's having "Sioux" on his jersey. In the 70's Sioux was either on the jerseys or on the side of the shorts. The interlocking ND was used on the side of the shorts when Sioux was on the jersey. I didn't see the use of a Sioux logo last century in basketball. I do remember seeing the Brien Sioux logo on the shorts in BB. I also recall seeing a large mural type Sioux in one of the windows on the east wall of the Fieldhouse when I was a kid. I don't recall football using a Sioux logo. It was always the interlocking ND. In hockey the geometric Sioux logo was the first I remember of the Sioux logo. I looked back and see that there was use of another Sioux logo in the 1950's, before my time and there was the Sammy Sioux logo of the 1960's, which is a vague memory. Was that on the uniforms? Just trying to get some perspective on this issue. It seems BB and football rarely used the logo, just the name. Hockey has almost always used a logo. As a result, hockey fans have more angst than others. From those who can remember, was there a lot of dissent when UND went to the geometric logo. Heck, I don't even remember if going from the geometric to the Brien logo created a lot of turmoil. Was there? The first day the new Fighting Hawks logo came out, I just shook my head. Two days later, it looked a little better. I just think it takes time and adjustment. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
