It’s just a dumb dick move by these schools. As if “Civil War” is uniquely American or this game had any connection to the Confederacy or racism. It’s just getting stupid at this point. I’d venture to guess or assume most black people view this as a senseless gesture. 

Changing of the name is being done because of a request from players on both teams?? Did I read that correctly?

Two former players. But can you find any reference to this game that actually ties it to the Confederacy? Last time I checked my history, America isn’t the only country to have had a civil war. Making that connection is a serous stretch given that there has been no Confederate flags flown or any other type of symbolism connecting the game to the war fought in the 1860s. We’re losing our goddamn minds.

The state of Oregon is gonna Oregon. ...it's what it is.  Portland destroyed the sane minded people in that state.

Look. I could give two chits what they call the game. I was just saying it was players who asked for the change not random people. And it’s gonna get harder as players, students etc. make these kinds of demands. What do you say to them? I do agree we’re losing our minds.

Honestly, after reading that re Oregon internal, I thought it was all about Missouri Kansas conventional re football context.  Neither Oregon was invented at that time. Go figure.  No wait..Kansas and Mizzou are the Border War.  The two Oregons were never a part of macro matters that really mean diddly squat in the Before Times. 

The two Oregons just need to focus on Nike sponsorship and PAC matters.

Here is a list of college rivalry names. Gotta love “The Moonshine Throw Down”  between Marshall and Western Kentucky.

I love that the Golden Screwdriver is a "Wikipedia official" trophy for Hawaii-Fresno.

I mean... it's Oregon so it's definitely connected to racism at some point

Oregon seems to perform okay according to Google and Twitter data.

The American Civil War wasn't the only civil war to ever happen, IIRC.

Oregon was founded by people who were anti slavery because they were so racist that the idea of having any black people around was an abomination. Black people unconstitutional in the state until the '20s? '30s? Portland had segregation and jim crow laws into the '60s. 

It's definitely different today but the civil war has been going on for a long ass time

Just a few years ago I was wanting to go to Portland and check out all the breweries they have. 
I've spent time in Berkeley and San Francisco and wasn't bothered by stuff there but now I wouldn't step foot in Portland or Seattle.  
I have a friend who moved there about 2 years ago to work for Amazon and he's not happy now.  He was the first year but not now.

Tell you what Happy, I promise to change my opinion if there are articles or valid linked resources that connect this football game to the Confederacy at any point in time that it has been referred to as the “Civil War.“ Anything with Confederate battle flags, bands playing Dixie, blue vs grey, UNLV mascots ... anything will do.

I didn't say it had anything to do with the Confederacy. Just engaging in some light historical Oregon bashing

Okay, I can support that. Oregonians like @NVGiant are shallow people with poor taste in condiments.

Is the holy war still acceptable to the Quorum of Twelve in Utah? 

I think in light of the one-sided atrocities committed by the Christians..and the Christians alone against the peace-loving Muslims in the Crusades that it's only a matter of time before the "Holy War" moniker is dropped via complaints by the oppressed

I’m an Oregonian-Nevadan, which brings up all kinds of issues: A preference for gambling, booze, and hookers ... so long as they are organic and/or environmentally friendly. It’s a tough pin to dance on.
