The next forty days will be huge for UND and its athletic program. The Alumni Association started a state-wide campaign to get voters to retire the nickname when the vote happens in mid-June. The school also found out another school that will not schedule UND with the Sioux nickname and that's South Dakota State.

The Jacks are scheduled to come to Grand Forks in 2013, but after that the SDSU says they'll wait to schedule any further games. The Jacks and Sioux played in nearly every sport this year ranging from basketball to baseball.
