So, as Bresciani screams poverty to the legislature and threatens to shut down academic programs, NDSU has money for this.
Hot debate. What do you think? 35 27
Yup. As we have discussed ad nauseous on the Sioux boards, in America, academics are a distant second to athletics.
Just ask all the USC boosters who wanted to commit terrorist acts over their multi year sanctions.
No mention of academics at what is by all accounts an excellent school

I don’t know….. all 3 of those logos look more “hostile and abusive” than a man’s face.

As an NDSU alum, AND fan, I’m thrilled that OUR logo will persist. Cmon, UND! can’t wait to hear what stupid logo you come up with. Still, I’ll miss all the Sioux jokes. How about the UND Prairie Dogs? or UND the Green and PINK! ha ha hah ha aha ah ahah.

UND Sun Dogs. Even I could design a cool logo for that & I can’t even draw stick figures.

That’s my choice, too, flyingnurse. It’s a cool name. Only bad thing is Arizona State already uses it so it’s not original. But nothing we can come up with is going to be quite as authentic and outstanding as the Fighting Sioux. But still…moving on. Have to.

Happy: ASU is the Sun Devils, not Sun Dogs. Alaska Pacific University are the Sun Dogs as well, but the heavens are big enough to share

Oh yeah, you’re right. My bad. Thanks for the correction. Even better reason to have the Sun Dogs!!

I own a bison farm. I’m offended by the NDSU logo. Anyone have the # for the NCAA?

I heard from a friend about a place called Danvers in Massachusetts. I tried calling there to see if they had a space open but I didn’t get an answer. I will try again on Monday.

What I find sad is that they had to go with a graphic artist in Pennsylvania. It’s not like this is a mind-blowing, conceptually intricate graphic, so I’m sure someone in North Dakota could have done as good, if not better. I mean, both UND and NDSU have art programs, so what does this decision say about what the administration thinks about the art students and faculty?

Well, UND went to a law firm in Salt Lake City to handle its suit against the NCAA.

God forbid that ND tax money would preferably be spent in ND.
NDSU needs a tune-up from the NDUS.

I don’t like the anthromoporphic nature of the buffalo face. It looks like a gargoyle with a nose job.

Much of the expense came from a fact finding trip of 18 NDSU officials and the logo company to study Gothic cathedrals in Europe.

1,3 are insulting, the second looks like a musk ox. Anyone that raises Bison along with Native Americans I think would be disgusted by any of these 3 images. none look even remotely like a bison.

Chuck, only in north dakota would you hear that complaint. It doesn’t matter who created the logo. north dakota isn’t exactly the cultural center of north america!

I agree wit h Chuck on this one. This could have been a great in house or in state competition.
Most community colleges have digital arts/ graphic arts departments. Most universities have art departments.
You have a contest, pony up some cash ($1000) for the winner, let a committee choose the top three designs & let the NDSU students choose the winner from among t,he three.
Save thousands of dollars, give the art & design students a real life project to work on, & have great buy in from NDSU students.
Why didn’t they do that? They were not interested in the student’s or public’s opinion.

Notice no mention of the cost nor the process of selection.. At least Forum Communication is consistent in its reporting.
