Wait, so the REA is in a conspiracy to get rid of the Brien logo? The REA, who has a bajillion of that logo within the building? Pffft lol. Goodness, I love the internet.

And I thought people would love to see the Blackhawk logo again.

2 Championship banners (1959, 1963) and 2 Conference Championship banners (1958, 1963) were changed from the Brien logo to an interlocking ND logo.  All the other banners were  changed to the Sioux logo used that year.  (3 stayed the Brien logo).  Every banner won after 2011 was already the newer interlocking ND logo.  Not sure what the outrage of changing 4 banners to a "non Indian head" Sioux logo.

I'd say my one minor complaint would be I would have liked to see a distinction in the conference banners (WCHA vs NCHC).

But I love...… the historical connections.

There shouldn't be. It's absolute effing nonsense.

Gotta say, I LOVE the fact that they are now historically accurate logos on the championship banners.  They look good!  I guess ask and you shall receive, eh @MafiaMan?!

They’re so beautiful.

1. Love the concept.

2. They should have consulted with Big A HG and put up Sammy and the Blackhawk specific style logos.

3. Liked the location better over the ice.*

4. Assume conference banners will have same concept?

*as I think about it more, they banners are now positioned right next to the bar video screens, which will pull in a lot of eyes, so maybe not a bad spot.

Sammy Sioux was never an official logo, so there would be no point in using it.

New banners get a strong favorability rating from the SS echo chamber.  They certainly have Taz Boy giving the big thumbs up!  I haven't seen this kind of unanimous agreement since the overwhelming disapproval just after the unveiling of that awful Peace Dove logo.

Sammy Sioux was on their jersey when they won their first national championship, there is no better point in using it than that.

The official logo, the interlocking ND, was on the ice those years as well.

The Blackhawk logo was neither the official logo nor on the ice any of those years, but it was on their jersey, like Sammy.

Sammy wasn’t on the front just on the shoulder.

Dam.  Some crazy times in the Barn.  So cold, you just had to be filled up with antifreeze.

Beautiful banners. As @SWSiouxMN said, I would've preferred that "conference" be WCHA or NCHA, but that's awfully nitpicky for such an upgrade. Think the REA has been reading SS?

I won't disagree that I was being nitpicky, the banners are awesome.

I just felt that if we are being historically accurate that having WCHA or NCHC instead of conference champions would have made it even better (the cherry on top of a sundae).

I'm a perfectionist, its a curse and blessing at the same time.

I can't say for certain, but I suspect it's the feather and spirit cloud referenced in the graphic.

Also, most of the natives I know hate the cartoonish native logos. The other logos were controversial as well but I doubt the school wanted to bring out their most controversial logo, especially if it is true that it was never the primary logo.

Yes. Exactly!!!!!!!! It was on their jersey.

Just like the Blackhawk, geometric, and ND shoulder patch on the 2016 banner; or, just like all of the other national championship banners. 

Thank you!!!!!!!!
