    Well since they'll be neutering it anyways, might as well call it Diet VEISHEA, or VEISHEA Lite.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:

    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Re: What Would You Rename VEISHEA?

    Seriously, it seems like a joke to try to think of new names. It isn't about the name. The name VEISHEA has just come to be associated with something that remains, whether or not we have a Spring event (or a Fall or Winter or Summer), namely young people like to gather, drink, and have riotous or near riotous experiences. The same problems could easily happen after a Tuesday night basketball game victory if the weather is nice.

    I disagree. There's a reason everybody was standing around chanting "VEISHEA" when the light posts were being torn down this year. I wasn't on campus for this riot but I was for the 2004 riot, and I remember that everybody was just waiting for a riot to happen that year. There's a link between VEISHEA and rioting. Sure rebranding it and making some changes won't fix everything. But removing that link will go a long way towards fixing the problem.

    Re: What Would You Rename VEISHEA?

    The VEISHEA riots have been associated with police breaking up house parties and people funneling onto Welch Avenue. Perhaps this is a technique the police could use in dealing with the house parties.
