I downloaded the latest logosheet the other day for the Gators and noticed that they made some changes. On the primary, they dropped the light green on the gator's chin and replaced with the regular green:

To me, this a downgrade. It takes away the lighting/depth and makes it look like one big green glob IMO. The thing is, they kept the light green on the underbelly of the standing gator logo, so now they aren't even consistent. Other changes include: dropping the block F, the wordmarks are all the same letter height, and the slanted "F" loses the dropshadow and gets an outline

No because when the Irish came to Ireland and first came in contact with the leprechaun people, they didn't take their land away and force them to move west. Instead, the two groups learned to assimilate peacefully. However, certain tribes of the leprechaun refused to taint the pure blood and moved north into the forests of Ireland, only to be seen rarely, usually at the same time of a rainbows appearance and occasionally at the factories of Lucky Charms.

It inverts the depth. The light green made the chin look recessed, while the regular green makes it look like it sticks out.

In real life, the original colour is correct.

It's like watching the hellish undead creakily shuffling their way out of the flames of a liposuction clinic dumpster fire.

Story B: Red Wings go undefeated and score 100 goals in every game. They also beat a team comprised of Godzilla, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, 2 Power Rangers and Betty White. Oh, and they played in the middle of Iraq on a military base. In the sand. With no ice. Santa gave them special sand-skates that allowed them to play in shorts and t-shirts in 115 degree weather. Jesus, Zeus and Buddha watched from the sidelines and ate cotton candy.

This is a downgrade to me, the only reason I can see for them to do this is printing cost.

It just looks like a fat alligator with a double chin now.

Yeah. Stupid downgrade, looks more like a mistake in the file than a conscious choice.

Printing three colors isn't any more expensive than three.

Wow. What was the point of that? Definitely a downgrade.

Here's part of a screengrab from the CLC resource site, to confirm the changes I mentioned:

Why even keep the green? Florida's school colors are orange and blue. You NEVER see green on any uniforms, and you never will. I say just get rid of it altogether.

Yeah, I've seen a cool version of the Gators logo in just blue and white before, that the Lacrosse company I did work for has done. It's pretty much a simplified logo, and white instead of green. But I do think it's a solid logo overall, but nothing is unchangeable.

I can see why :D

Smart is believing half of what you hear. Genius is knowing which half.

Lots of teams have extraneous colors in their logos, though. Should the Blackhawks make their logo just red, white and black?

A white outline was added around the entire logo as well. This removes that weird-looking intersection where the white at the top and bottom of the jaw broke the blue outline.

Interesting. Florida has embraced black, so this works. Just hard to get used to looking at, but I like it.

Nah, don't care for it.

The only improvement there is the dark outline, which looks better than the relatively light blue.

Is it bad that I couldnt even tell until I read the posts? Haha, I seriously saw something changed in the green, as if it got lighter but I didn't notice.

Personally, the green they're using looks atrocious with the blue outlines. Use black outlines and I think it would improve it.

I think florida should just start using green. Green, Orange, and Blue would look really interesting. Just as long as they keep the green to a little more than a trim color.

Why you make fun of me? I make concept for Auburn champions and you make fun of me. I cry tears.

Chopping off the dicks of Filipino boys and embracing causes that promote bigotry =/= strong moral character.

No way in hell do I want to see Florida in anything other than blue, orange, and white.

Even as a trim, green would look awful.
