Before Dirty posted the direct email addresses, I submitted a comment on the BoHE website. I just got a response back presumably from a staffer there. She said "Thanks for your input, and I agree with you. I will definitely forward this on to the members of the board."

:D

I didn't get the agree with you part, but the rest of the message was the same.

I must have been uncharacteristically agreeable. That doesn't happen to me often. :p
It wasn't a standard form email response either, it was actually from a person and personally signed and everything. I was surprised by this.

I actually like the idea of "Spirit Lakers". They'd be able to keep all the logos and imagery.

THis is a fantastic idea. I really like it.

You know, I'm wondering if it's too soon to say that the White Man defeated the Sioux again.

Thats another question what about all of the logos in the arena do they have to remove them ? I was pretty sure Uncle Ralphie had a clause in some aggreement on the arena that they couldnt play there without having the name.


Can anyone give me the cliff notes version on the stadium impact? Wasn't there something about not being able to use REA if the name was changed?

No, there is no such clause. That is just a rumor. UND can continue to use the REA regardless of what their nickname is and they aren't "required" to change any logos right away.

Speaking from Chicago, Hodgson again debunked the urban legend that there’s a secret document from Ralph Engelstad calling for the closing of the 11,640-seat venue if the nickname ever changes.

UND has until 2050 to make any necessary changes to the arena. They can make the changes during routine maintenance to sections of the arena. UND also has a year to retire the logo completely, so they can still use the Fighting Sioux nickname and logo on their jerseys for next season if they wish to.


If the building is not owned by the University, is there really anything they can do to force REA to remove the Sioux stuff?

The NCAA can't force the REA to make the changes, but that might limit their chances of hosting another regional until they do.
