    Nickel Trophy Retired

    If this is in another thread, please move it.

    The Nickel Trophy between UND and NDSU has been retired. It is darn heavy, I've had my hands on it.

    Re: Nickel Trophy Retired

    I'm sad that they're retiring it mostly because UND keeps making themselves look silly parading it around like they have been. I was hoping they'd continue to prop it up as a holy idol to their "glory days" for years to come.

    The Nickel was retired when UND canceled the NDSU rivalry by announcing their 2004 season schedule and we weren't on it, despite it being scheduled.

    I glad it is retired.

    And IMO, they do not need to start any new traveling trophy.

    You know as well as I that they will. I say leave them out to dry like they did to NDSU.

    The Nickel Trophy, otherwise known as the That thing still exists? trophy.
    The xDSUs rivalries with the UxDs have become so one sided I wouldnt even consider them rivalries anymore.

    Certainly not for football. Compare the attendance for he Marker Game and the USeD game. Not close.

    UND won't be initiating anything. Making up lame trophies sucks.

    That is temporary. Keep in mind, Notre Dame/USC, Alabama/Auburn, etc. All these series have had long stretches on domination over one another. I'd expect NDSU and SDSU to likely maintain a strong advantage over UND and USD.

    Regarding the Nickel, they should be playing for it. No reason not to. Pretty cool trophy.

    Since the UND/NDSU football rivalry is only periodically relevant, I think this should be the new trophy:
