Despite the settlement agreement, many items still remain today. It appears, though, that you can no longer actually buy the gear.

The NCAA says it's making the changes as a consequence for UND as its continuing name and Indian-head logo use despite an NCAA policy against the use.

University of North Dakota merch that doesn't have references to the nickname will be available on the NCAA site.
