Supporters of the Fighting Sioux Logo have created an online petition.

On the website petition.com, it asks the North Dakota Board of Higher Education to reverse the decision to retire the Sioux logo.

It was started three days ago as a effort to gain 50,000 signatures.

While it might show support for the nickname, it won't have any affect and the boards decision.

Grant Shaft / ND Higher ED Board : "Nothing against their effort to do that- I'm just saying, there is nothing that would be on that would be binding on the Board of Education."

Shaft says all of the voting members on the Higher Ed Board are in favor of keeping the logo. Retiring it was in the best interest of UND.
