I really find it unfortunate the the REA and the hockey program has adopted the "North Dakota" script as their defacto "logo".  I don't care how much you may hate the Fighting Hawks logo, buut having that logo on the front of the jersey would be waaaaaaaaay better than this!!!  Yikes, this is bad.

It's a $64 jersey on Ebay. Are we actually thinking this is what the team is going with?

Don't know, but it doesn't jump out to me as obviously counterfeit.

It's the same script logo that is used on the uniforms for men's and women's basketball, softball and the track teams. If anything, changing from the circular script to this one puts these jerseys more in line with the rest of the athletic department.

I see your point.  Maybe they should go even further and do the same design as the basketball team and put numbers below the "North Dakota".   I wonder how this design would look on a hockey jersey....

Probably similar to all the other college hockey programs that put their university's location over a number. (Denver, Miami, Omaha just in our own conference alone)

I always liked the loom of the Boston College Jersey.  Doing something like this I think would be much better than last years njersey (and whatever this latest design is).  No number will almost guarantee more sales for the simple fact of not having to customize it.  Would love the new jerseys to look like this with our North Dakota script.

Also wouldn't mind seeing an alternate jersey like this as well with "HAWKS" in diagonal letters.  Would love to see a grey alternate with this design!!

The REA doesn't get to pick the logo, the university does. The university wants to have unity across all platforms and there is no reason that the REA and the hockey program get to go down a different path because they have an entitlement mentality.

The general rule of thumb has always been nickname on the front of the home jerseys (FIGHTING HAWKS, in this case) and city/school on the front of the road jerseys (obviously, in this case, NORTH DAKOTA).  I'm not a fan of the NORTH DAKOTA on the front of the white jerseys, but would LOVE the state name on the front of the road greens and, ahem, Canisius College weekend black alternates.

Only thing is that UND has never followed that general rule.  Seems like most of their jerseys from the past were the same design and then just altered colores for home and away.  Not saying we need to be like the Gophers and have 8 different jersey options.  But a home "Hawks" jersey and a road "North Dakota" I think would be great.

I think the shoulder patch is about the most we can expect for now.

I meant having "HAWKS" written diagonally across the home jersey (Like the BC jersey I posted).  I am fine with the logo just on the shoulder.

I'll believe it once I see it in the Sioux Shop (in person or online)

I hope it will be better than this

I agree with you, but I don't think they'll do it.

I am not a fan of shortening up full nicknames for jerseys and would prefer a rounded FIGHTING at the top, number in the middle, and the bottom being HAWKS. 

Or something like this with the logo in the middle...

I think that font works much better with a one-color green design rather than the three-color black-white-green as it appears on the hockey jersey photo.  Dare I say that I kind of like these boucy-ball uniforms?

Has REA been re-named Kris Engelstad McGarry Rink at Ralph Engelstad Arena yet?  Asking for a friend.

Maybe actually having a legit budgetbfor logo and branding would have been a good idea.....

 

The logobis a small patch icon at best, shoulders and sides of helmet is where it lives best... well the right side at least.

H A W K S diagonally wouldnt be as awefull.

All of this is really aweful though... woof

Maybe with “N DAKOTA” diagonally. 

Or just DAKOTA diagonally.
