    Black History Month and Jack Trice Stadium

    It's a little late in the month of February to be bringing this up, but my normal Thursday evening running route doesn't take me past Jack Trice Stadium. I got goosebumps running past it today. I was thinking about how it was our student body, not administrators, who pushed for the naming in 1997. For me it shows an organic, very natural commitment to equality and civil rights by Cyclones everywhere. To date it is the only stadium named after an African American in the FBS. Does anyone else feel this way?
