    College athletics identity changes 2018-19

    Cal U (California University of Pennsylvania, Division II) Vulcans revealed their new athletics logos yesterday. Source --> While they're not the only Vulcans in the NCAA, I think it's safe for them to brand under the name instead of Cal U which I'm sure many have confused with the state of California.

    Misconceptions of logos

    As for Norfolk State's secondary logos, I realize these days those are shields below the heads but I always think it's their upper bodies hunched over.

    I wish Northeastern University's new primary husky logo was in contention, I think it could had placed high.

    Just noticed it even though it's been around since August: San José State University has been using a newer Spartan helmet logo this school year. Doesn't appear on uniforms yet but is on promotional material & social media. From university website, "As of September 2018, SJSU has “one Spartan, one spirit.” The university has merged the university spirit mark and the Athletics Spartan helmet, creating a stronger, more unified presence in our community." Altogether it's nearly identical to the old spirit without the shoulder element and now just 2 colors instead of 4.

    Old Kentucky baseball logo

    Do you have a guess on what years this logo was used? I can narrow down my searching once I know that. Thanks.

    Man, I didn't even notice that. It's been a while since I've seen new hidden letters.

    Illinois Wesleyan University Titans, member of NCAA D3's CCIW, unveiled their new brand yesterday. Featured are a new titan head logo, new stylized IW, and new wordmarks. The previous "Tommy Titan" logo, used by IWU athletics since the late 1960s, will continue to be featured at Illinois Wesleyan as a vintage or retro mark. The new primary mark – a redesigned Titan head – was created in-house and the additional marks were developed by Rickabaugh Graphics. SOURCE OLD NEW Personally, I'm very happy to see the updated look. I noticed the inconsistency of their brand while watching this school over past couple years. They've had logos that mirrored Michigan State's retro Gruff logo, a stylized W very similar to Wisconsin on their football helmets, and an I-Wesleyan mark identical to Iowa State's primary.

    Unique Team Names?

    I have my own Google spreadsheet that I use to keep track of every US collegiate team regarding what conferences they're in, logo changes, news, etc. On my count there's 382 unique collegiate nicknames across all levels, 87 in NCAA Division I alone out of 353. However the list can be debatable considering, for example, there's a ton of Bearcats but only one Bearkats (Sam Houston State), or there's a ton of Bears but only one uses Sugar Bears for their women's teams (Central Arkansas).

    Division III's Loras College Duhawks of Dubuque, Iowa announced their new brand today. The Dewey logo has been retired in favored of bringing consistency to the school's new brand. (Source) This was designed by Wes Teska, his Behance work here. In addition to below there is a head-only logo & wordmark. For those wondering what's a Duhawk, it's a combination of Dubuque Hawks where the school is located. OLD NEW

    Oh, it's cool. I understood what was going on. I figured I had to say something. I haven't spent much time posting before this thread so I'm learning the finer details of it along the way.

    Yes, that was there previously. The source of my link was from the athletics site, I guess they updated it which affected it here. I'll be sure to use a more permanent pic next time.

    Concordia University Chicago Cougars of Division III unveiled their new brand during Homecoming for the first time since 1983. New is the cougar logo and font. I take it uniforms will be updated next summer and will be slightly brighter, including for football. Source OLD NEW Personally, not a fan at all. The old logo wasn't fantastic but it was unique enough that I always knew who it belonged to. Now it's seems too cartoonish and bland. Wordmark is decent.

    Their Challengers logo has been red, white, & blue for some time but over the past year or 2 their uniforms have been teal & black which I believe are their institutional colors. It has been weird seeing the different colors so it makes sense they're actually making changes to their identity.
