2016 Final Four Logo - New NCAA Championship Logo System

Recommended Posts

I think this is what the Super Bowl logos need to be like. Not black and silver year after year, minus the 50th SB. But have flair from each host city, different colors year to year.. Wait that sounds really familar.

Given the (not so good) quality of the non-basketball championship logos, I'm fine with putting in an NCAA-wide system if it comes out like this logo did.

If you're going to have a "system", at least make it interesting.

The Final Four has done so...

Guys, we can't judge the system based on one logo.

But, I really like the logo unveiled. Hopefully the NCAA can keep this going in the future.

If the only requirements as being required are Final Four in a set typeface and the trophy this can be a good step moving forward.

It looks like the logo will stay the same shape each year, just with the individual elements being changed out, which I really like.

But yeah, it's tough to judge based on one year's logo.

Actually, I wonder what this system is going to be, exactly.

Is this going to be a template where we will see:

- The Trophy in center

- "Final Four" underneath

- [Host City, Year]

- All surrounded by a design.

OR

Will it just be seeing the trophy placed within a design with the "Final Four" and host city and year placed anywhere, just as long as you can see it?

What? We can't judge a logo by the only year it exists? You're kidding, don't we do that all the time on these boards? Don't we judge hideous uniforms, logo recolors, proposed logos, logos that never make it onto an official anything, score bug logos, logos that get ripped off, logos for teams that never play a game.........

Ok, never mind, back to reality..

Um, that's not what anyone was saying. It's the "system" that can't truly be judged based on one logo; we haven't seen how it'll carry over from year to year as of yet.

My guess is Fraser Davidson. Seems like his style, I thought I saw him tweet this, and it uses one of the United fonts.

To be fair, they already used a logo system for basketball. The "Final Four" text has been rendered in the same font, surrounded by a localized theme, since at least 2007. They've used the same one for the men and women.

What is changing now is the system is expanding across all sports, so the volleyball championship will look the same each year, just in a local theme. Overall, it's a good thing because in most cases, it will replace the bland NCAA sport logo with "Championship" written under it.

I hope they keep the Stagg Bowl and FCS football championships the same. They already have designs that make them unigue and only require the year or the number of that game to be changed. (2015 or XXXVII)
