    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.

    Back to Division I, I looked up UNLV and I noticed the 'new' Rebel logo is gone for good. Ever since it went public in late June 2017 people have hated on it so much the school has been quiet about the brand for the past year. In the previous style guide there was only 1 version of the older arch UNLV and now the current one is just the arch UNLV has multiple variations of it. Note that the older rebel logo with the white mustache is long gone but I still see it a lot today. GONE Primary Again

    I'm intrigued by this. I looked up Port Neches-Groves athletics and found their website. On that is an Indian logo that I know is a copy of University of the Cumberlands of NAIA when they were formerly Cumberland College Indians. Google search shows Port-Neches-Grove using the Rend Lake version on the hudl.com account for the girls' varsity soccer team. Hudl.com is no way a credible source of logos but I see how it's not original. That's the only source I see of Port Neches-Groves using that, their twitter accounts also show the older logos. I understand not everything is posted online. Interestingly on Rend Lake College's athletics website there's two links on the right side dedicated to their new logos including a well-done usage manual so you'd think they were original owners of the design. I'm curious how old this new 'warrior/indian' logo really is and who designed it.

    Oops, twice in a row I've had this problem. Original source was from a shared Google Drive of their logos on their athletics website. That and not every image I have is online so I'll keep a permanent Imgur album for this. Hopefully it's good to go. Thanks.

    Over an hour's drive southeast of St. Louis in Illinois is the home of the Rend Lake College Warriors. They play 7 sports in the NJCAA, football not one of them. In July they modernized their brand. I believe the primary logo has 8 colors but there are options with reduced colors & the secondary logo has less detail and is single-color. The RL logo isn't brand new but I don't think it's more than a year old either. Very well done update for a school on the junior college level. OLD NEW

    Back in June Virginia Wesleyan University Marlins updated their logos & marks. Now more horizontal, gone are the teeth but colors are mostly the same. Font has been straightened. The former college is a member of the Division III's Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) and is the only school in the U.S. with the Marlins nickname. Source OLD NEW

    A school some of you may know: Edward Waters College Tigers of Jacksonville rebranded in August. They gave a teaser in February of their new EWC mark then last month showed off the new tiger logos. This set was created by Greg Hahn of Designs by Hahn. He is the same person who designed the new logos for Paine College, University of Montana Western, National Park College, and assisted with Oklahoma Wesleyan University & Columbia College of South Carolina. Edward Waters is a HBCU that competes in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference of the NAIA & plays football as an affiliate in the mega 21-team Mid-South Conference. OLD NEW NEW Football Helmet

    Over in the CCCAA, College of the Canyons Cougars of Santa Clarita, CA quietly but nicely upgraded their athletics logo. I haven't seen any proof of a cougar-only logo but that'd be nice to see. OLD NEW
