  1. Considering how long it took them to win a title, maybe they should have worn alts a long time ago.
  2. Non-Referencing of Nickname in logos

    That makes sense. I misunderstood your premise. My point was more along the lines that none of those logos are primary and many are still obtuse. Try explaining why a Sooner is a flag on the side of a wagon. Yeah, I get the claim jumping and homesteaders trying to settle Oklahoma "sooner" than others, but it's still a bit more complex than just a team like Georgia calling themselves the Bulldogs and having an actual Bulldog plus a guy in a Bulldog costume. Put it this way. The SEC can have THREE Tigers and LSU, Mizzou and Auburn can each still distinguish themselves because tigers are very commonly known things. Everyone has their own interpretation and the logo can be a tiger paw (Clemson) without being anything similar to Mike the Tiger or infringing on LSU.
  3. Non-Referencing of Nickname in logos

    This only works when the mascots are simple, readily identifiable and tangible objects. College sports are ripe with more abstract and unique names that are very hard (if not impossible) to make into an easy-to-discern logo. Cornhuskers. Sooners. Hoosiers. Buckeyes. Hokies. Volunteers. Cardinal. Crimson Tide. Etc... You'll never see a logo of a Hoosier and be like, "hey that's a good looking Hoosier," because there is no universal definition of WHAT a Hoosier IS. Compare that to a Bulldog, Tiger or Spartan, which are simple objects even a child can ID.
  4. Scientifically accurate raptors

    I dig it. Needs more purple.
  5. New Best Buy logo

    Oh man, that negative space between the Y and the tag is KILLING me. If they twisted the tag or changed the angle of the Y to make the lines parallel, it would improve this design from "Dumpster Fire" to a passable "Gum Stuck on Your Shoe."
  6. Crosstown Classic Logo Concept

    The font is hard to read for me, mostly because of color choice. The baby blue and white are too close and strain the eyes a bit. I'd suggest swapping one of them for a darker tone, or maybe just adding an extra outline in a darker color between the blue and white to create some space.
  7. Every NCAAF title claimed by Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Penn State, Notre Dame, USC, Michigan or Alabama. 😀
  8. Full list of teams with neon colors?

    This isn't their current set (or name), but it should be.
  9. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Replace the jersey piping with a classic shoulder stripe (only one stripe, to match the pants) and I'm a fan. I actually really liked those pants with the N placed inside the stripe.
  10. Stetson University Unveils New Athletic Logo

    Hey, you guys remember that episode where Michigan State guest starred on Gunsmoke?
  11. Graphics: What if Teams Could Never Change a Logo?

    Bulls look great, lol. Kidding aside, I'm digging the logos for the Cards and Royals. Missouri baseball lookin' retro and sharp.
  12. Seahawks old logo vs new logo

    Unpopular opinion? I like the green vomit jerseys.
  13. Uniform/jersey misunderstandings

    Seawolves looks nothing like the Ducks. And I live in Eugene. That lady must also think all Packers, Athletics, Supersonics and Eskimos logos are Ducks gear, then.
  14. Presenting quite possibly the worst uniform list ever created

    I (more or less) like all of those except the Steelers' Bumble Bees. But even that is cool as a one-off alternate since it pays homage to their history. I realize this is an NFL list, but if you want to talk about some fugly alts go after NCAAF.
