Hawk for the academic logo? How many other schools have a separate athletic logo and academic logo? UND flame logo is decent but I think they should be one in the same.. Interlocking ND could have been used for both.

You've seen his attempt at it right? The Sioux logo was great but the new one he did looks like it ran into the Hyslop face first. 

This is true.  But adaptations have looked good... very good.

Being that Kennedy is now gone and UND will be starting the process of picking a new president, should it high time that this thread gets retired to the scrap heap?

That ship has sailed. We have a new logo and brand. It is what it is , who cares?  We need to focus on what is best for the University, our students and our athletic programs.

Logos and names don’t win games. Never have, never will.

This is our president. How does our president get into a mess like this. Is this an indication of the lack of competence of our president? I am afraid so.

From Kennedy's response to the NDUS chancellor's acceptance of the  “de facto notice of resignation,” did Kennedy actually put his resignation in like he said he would if he takes the job in CO? 

“This letter confirms that I have not resigned my position as the president of the University of North Dakota,” Kennedy wrote. “If I were to resign at some point in the future, I will provide you with written notice of my resignation.”

It just got awkward. Might have been better to say nothing from the start.

Doesn’t help that some are buying and promoting roque merchandise that doesn’t benefit UND in some misguided attempt to force a change.

What does butter our bread?  Just curious because people seem to be complaining about money quite a bit around here.

Right now, we are still using the old Division 2 funding model of Season Ticket sales, Champions Club memberships and 50/50 raffles. And that won't cut it in Division 1 athletics. We need to start thinking outside the box or we'll remain a bargain-basement/shoestring budget Division 1 school. In other words, a colder, more northern version of Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

Butter?

Does the profit from putting butter on my popcorn go towards paying for a new scoreboard? vs. something like a raise to an assistance BB coach?
Does the profit from my buying a Hawks cap go towards the effort to keeping the Hawks logo off of the hard wood or ice? vs. to some FB support?

I don't think that's the case, though. The hockey-only mouthbreathers will always side with anything Engelstad and the faculty will hate a Republican who cut programs. 

I don't see a significant movement in the public opinion. 

I know several faculty on both sides of the political aisle that likely cheered. MK made few friends at UND and it has more to do with his lack of tact, transparency, and just general leadership than it does budget cuts. People can understand budget cuts. However he did so with the grace of a blind surgeon using a rusty machete who ignored everything his nurses told him.
