Absolutely. Who wants to constantly keep that painful part of our history in the forefront. Call it The Rivalry

I have never liked this name. It conjures up images of the most divisive moment in this country. This is a competition between two universities in Oregon. A competition, not a hate war.

There are movements all over the country renaming things that had any connection to the historical Civil War. This is but another and it is a good idea.

A sporting event is not a war, that is my first objection.Then of course there is the trivialization of the real Civil War where people died, our ancestors. They deserve better.

Treasonous soldiers tried to overtake our country and they lost. Then after defeat killed our President. Let that sink in. Rename the game to the “ Duck vs Beaver Bowl”

This situation is becoming ridiculous. Pretty soon we will be banned from wearing blue a/o grey clothes, insulting someone.

It's heritage between the northern & southern school; has nothing to do with racism. It's just a reference to their geographic locations. Why infer some meaning that is not.

There is no reason to rename, change the game at all. The pandering to the BLM is out of control. They are trying to destroy history along with the USA. Enough is enough.

I don't understand why this is or should be an issue. It's been this way forever.

Civil war says what it means. It happens all over the world.not due to race but difference of opinion.

So now we're going to demand other countries change their history as well? I.E. Spanish Civil War? What if there is a new American Civil War between Republicans and Democrats???

You are not an idiot but someone else here resembles one. I also think all this renaming and tearing down monuments to our history is ridiculous

I don't know that the state should require it, but I think the insurance companies should.

"To"? Anyone who can't spell a three letter word is unpersuasive.

I'll go with "no" on this one. If there's insurance on the house, the insurer could do that. Ditto for any mortgage holder. If neither applies, I don't think we should try to regulate stupidity.

And if my neighborhood burns because of the inadequately insured slob next door . . .

I love thunder and lightening! Don't like the fires though but do like the rain. Always on the front porch with my granddaughter whenever a thunder storm rolls in
