  1. I think Blazers would be one of the worst names, because of the reference to the Civil War.
  2. I think just because it doesn't copy all of the others, doesn't mean that it isn't great and better than most.
  3. To the mods, Can we try to keep the MLB mega- thread in Sports Logos about sports logos and put arguments about teams in Florida and who had it worse than Montreal fans in General Sports threads? Thanks in advance for whatever you can do!
  4. Mods, can the discussion of rules be moved and get this thread back to a sports logo/uniform/colors discussion? Please!
  5. I wear my khakis full length, but then again i don't slide around in the dirt at my job.
  6. I think a "TC" logo is fine if they want to be the Twin City Baseball Club. Right now it is just ridiculous. "Twins" is okay if you want to be the Minneapolis & St. Paul Twins. If you are Minnesota, then find a mascot that represents the whole state. I think their whole identity and logo is a hodge podge of confusion. IMO, figure who you represent then create any identity around that. Right now they don't know if they represent the state, or two cities within. I think they have the weakest identity in any major sports league.
  7. I may have just missed seeing out posted, but the yankees also had matte helmets today.
  8. IMO, Because the present value of that cash flow is much greater than the value of that cash flow postponed a few years.
  9. I doubt both Lawsons will wear the same number! I bet we'll be able to tell them apart...... because they will have large numbers that are different on their jerseys.
  10. Would there be any other option with an open bidding process for a public institution? Going with the lowest bidder would be illogical. Since all three companies are capable of providing the same support, the amount of the bid would be the only other variable to consider. Well technically contracts for the exact same service can contain several elements of compensation that aren't strictly cash which can be assigned different valuations depending on the terms. Also the cash payment terms of the contracts like lump sums or royalties can vary quite a bit which makes things less cut and dry. Correct. Commercials which promote your school, guaranteeing your school the latest and greatest over the other schools under the brand, as well as many other factors that would be what was in the manufacturers control. All of which any of the big three manufacturers could offer. As far as money the present value of whatever cash payouts to the school is what would be looked at by the AD when taking the monetary aspect into consideration. If all services are the same, then the AD would look at the present value of the cash payout. So the AD would not want to go for the worse monetary deal. Right?

  12. I just noticed there's an orange stripe in the rainbow stripes on the uniform, but there's no orange stripe in the rainbow on the helmet. That's going to really bother me.I agree! Four rainbow stripes on the helmet and five stripes at every other rainbow location on the jersey seems odd. Regardless of the presentation of the rainbow colors on the helmet( separated and outlined ), there is no reason to not be consistent with the colors and order of the stripes. Although historically 5 stripes have been used so have 4, with white thrown in instead of green on some of the green jerseys. This isn't an issue of 1 white stripe on the helmet and 2 white stripes on the pants. With an inconsistency through Hawaii history, why not clean it up and be consistent?
  13. I like that they aren't using the multiple unbalanced center stripes.....at least on this version of the helmet.
  14. I asked a student manager friend of mine. He said it might've been a last minute thing for the spring game. When I was at Auburn, the managers had a big iron press that they could add numbers or name plates to blank jerseys, or make up practice jerseys. Maybe UA gave them random fonts to play with. BTW the SEC logo is from 3-4 years ago. Yes, once again, the team wears old game uniforms for A-Day. They wear the 75th SEC patch as well. All the jerseys they have been wearing the past few years have been pre-2011 jerseys. Thanks for repeating what you had already stated. What I was saying is that the new logo had been used for 3 to 4 years so this was an old logo. Maybe this was confusing. If you had read others replies, you would have seen that I was just letting others know that it was an old logo not a new logo for this year, hence the BTW (or by the way). BTW isn't an attack toward you, just an add on to my post with a little extra info.
