    Jack Trice on ISU Homepage

    The Jack Trice Story.mov - YouTube

    With the recent revival of the Trice throwback thread, I thought this video was just plain awesome and makes me want to see those uniforms on the field more than ever!

    I know this has been talked about many times, but how has this not been made into a movie yet?! This would be such a good plot!

    Great video. I knew the story, but hadn't seen this rendition. Thanks for sharing it.

    One fact check question. The historian says that students initiated the idea to name the stadium after him. I thought a Des Moines Register columnist was the driving force. Does anybody know more about this?

    Wouldn't it though?? I mean it may not have a real happy of an ending, but what a heartfelt and pivotal sports story that needs to be told.

    If I had to choose I would go with something simple like either "Jack" or maybe even "Trice". Original right??

    But I think its simple, to the point, and somewhat catchy.

    It was the students. I, along with many others, helped distribute a petition to change the name to Jack Trice Stadium in 1983.

    Great video, after watching it I watched the other 9 minute one listed on the side. It has more details and interviews with how the student movement began to name the stadium after Jack Trice.

    YouTube - The Story Of Jack Trice (History Day 2009) (this is the mobile version, fyi.)

    This is going to be another great season! Go Cyclones!

    This is why we will never sell the naming rights to Jack Trice Stadium. Thanks for posting this!

    The stadium already has a perfect name so I would sure hope the "naming right" would never be sold...I don't care how much they offer

    Re: Jack Trice on ISU Homepage

    So, is much known about what motivations might have been in play that led to Jack Trice's injuries?

    Was the cleating (were cleats in use in that era, and on that day?) of Jack deliberate? If deliberate, was it racial? (Maybe Jack had played so effectively the Gophers wanted to put Jack the player, not Jack the black man, out of the game.) If racial, was the attack deadly in intention?

    Wondering if UM players who ran onto and over Jack that day spoke up years later. Not that they would have admitted truthfully to the motivations involved in such an ignominious event.

    Me, if someone wanted me to speculate without basis in fact but with a lifetime's observation of we humans and a basic understanding of American life at the time, I would guess there was intention on the part of UM players, the intention was born of Jack's race, and the intention was to injure. Not kill, but injure so as to remove Jack from the field.

    Anyone have concrete information along these lines?

    Thanks much.

    Re: Jack Trice on ISU Homepage

    Two things that come to mind after watching this.

    It's interesting that the University of Minnesota has never expressed remorse for what happened, at least not that I'm aware of (I could be wrong). Even though it wasn't the "university" that committed what today could be considered a hate crime, it was the players who were representing their institution that did this horrible act. In my opinion, the university could have at least expressed its remorse without accepting total responsibility.

    Second, while I'm sure Jack Trice would be honored to know his university named its football stadium after him, I wonder how he'd feel about the Jack Trice Club (a club that only allows access to big time contributors) carrying his name. It seems ironic, considering that Jack could not eat in the same restaurant as his teammates.

    That would be like selling the naming rights for Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Des Moines.......
