  1. I got this link today as I have seen games at Loyola the last two seasons. This is the new court design for basketball and volleyball at the Gentile Arena. It's OK, but could have been more striking IMHO. They, like a lot of institutions in Chicago, are leaning hard into the '4 stars on the flag' motif. Personally, I wish Loyola would go back to the "LU" design they had when I grew up there and my Dad was a professor. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA_4w7pNV-M&feature=youtu.beInsert other media
  2. On the personal, a friend's father's business made the flags at Wrigley. She couldn't tell me why the Phillies flag is still maroon.
  3. Now that Loyola is in the spotlight one must admit that Ramblers is a pretty unusual nickname.
  4. C'moooooon. You gotta let them dine out on that game for a while. At least til the season starts.
  5. I'e never been a fan of the Bengal's stripe scheme. Always hated the helmets and the latest redesigns are awful. If they wanted to go back to the boring basic Ken Anderson-era look, it wouldn't bother me. (Although an orange jersey might be interesting.) Speaking of, I like the Browns' set. I understand the objections people have, and I dislike the piping look on the jersey seams, and maybe the NCAA is the proper place for the name-on-the-pants look, but their look has always been so block-basic that it's not a sacreligeous gear-strip or anything.
  6. I think I like it. It looks very one-of-a-kind.
  7. Personally I find the 80s set boring and the wordmark logo dumb. i like the new old look they've had for a while now. IIRC, in (I think) 1994 they played and exhibition game against the Bears in which they wore a color-inverted version of the NYJ helmet which fascinated me. Am I completely crazy or was that a thing?
  8. No need o apologize, but it bothers me that people still either don't realize or don't care about the inspiration for the original logo and that it has nothing to do with Picasso and everything to do with Hopi folk art.
  9. Yup yup yuuuuup. Absolutely mystifying. I guess Disney really wanted to put their stamp on the team. Yiccch.

    I shall never forget these kindnesses. Your words carry infinite value. This was my first time here so I never understood the levels of pedantry at play on these message boards. As I begin my final form at Dunnsborough-Chawton I shall apply your many encouraging thoughts toward my general studies and hope to better myself in every way that I may one day approach the correct levels of pedantry as you have so very generously explained them to me.

    Why, thank you for the lesson on pedantry, Mr. "100% Certainty/Something That Was!" If I had meant to sportsplain, I would have.
  12. But those are two different helmets. I always dug that NY, even though it's a little hard to read.

    No they're not. They're named for the Blackhawk division, the outfit the Freddie McLaughlin served with in the war. (Which I think was named for the Sauk Chief, but the team is not directly.)
