Way too much overthinking on this.  As someone else said, caste a new nickel, replacing the Indian head with a Hawk.  Simple, easy, keeps tradition. I know there is not currently a coin like this

Posts like this is is why you are considered one of the essential 5 pillars of the Sioux Football forum by us underlings.  You never disappoint, well done 

Hard no on melting down the current nickel, but I wouldn't be opposed to a new one based on the 2004 Lewis&Clark design, commemorating the expedition's winter in ND.

The Nickle Trophy is made of Plaster of Paris, hard but fragile and subject to water damage.  It should stay in the museum where it's protected.

Plaster casts were hauled to a St. Paul, MN foundry where plaster copies were recast in an aluminum alloy. The halves were welded together to make the finished piece.

The Nickel, at 250 times larger than a regular five-cent piece, weighs 75 pounds and is 2 inches thick and 22 inches in diameter.

I got a phone call from some of the higher ups in legislature last night. They don’t want the Nicole back but would like a new rivalry game

 

lets make suggestions here so I can report back

 

inam thinking BEET OFF in honor of sugar beets. A big help to our economy and we each have crystal subrars in our metro area 

Red River Rivalry with a Steamboat or a Ship's Wheel for the trophy.

Red River Trophy.

If you were going with this....I'd do something like Red River Rock, and have a rock or something.  Trophy sounds too vanilla.   Although I'm with others, my first choice would be to refashion the nickel with a Hawk on one side.

I like the quirky awards (little brown jug, keg of nails, etc.) vs an actual trophy. I think a snow shovel would be cool. Paint the blade in each team's colors. Its definitely representative of North Dakota and not as regional as a badlands or red river theme.

We are dealing with "hook em horns". Not sure how important originality is here.

I keep telling my older brother that they copied Texas but he's a bandwagon fan so it doesn't seem to bother him.

I like refashioning the mickle and I know this is a ND thing but in MN we are still under the “rocks and cows” statement.

Everyone knows the nickel and I would think gender neutral animals would not be offensive!

I’ve never like NDSU’s use of that hand signal.

I remember when NDSU beat Oklahoma in the NCAA basketball tourney and Saul Phillips used the horns after the game toward the ndsu fans, the Oklahoma fans were extra pissed because they thought he was adding insult to injury and using the hand signal of their rival.
