That's a goofy-looking cougar. Looks like he is trying to hold back a laugh. Almost looks Joker-ish.

The old logo was far better with no reason to update it, other than being desperate to repair their image.

While I do think the old one was extremely outdated, I'm not really a fan of the new logo. The lion looks surprised... I kinda wish they just updated the Lion Shrine instead of going with a whole new lion head.

Umm not a good move.

The font doesn't look like a university's. The Lion looks bad. Just not a good rendering.

I understand why they went with the font they did, it's a part of the modernization initiative that the campus has been undergoing for years, even before all the crap that happened in 2011. A lot of the newer buildings they have completed have a more modern feel and the font kind of matches that. That being said, I agree that they could've chosen a font that better matched the historical identity of the school while modernizing.

Looks like an insurance company now, at least to my eyes. The font and the shield shape probably do that.

Because if there's one way to slough off the remains of your academic and athletic scandals, it's modeling your brand after a bastion of trust and integrity - the American financial sector.

Man,PennState should had been an insurance company because of that.

Also,you ripped off Allstate's motto.

I finally figured out what this reminds me of.

It's like the logo they unveiled in the early 2000's that they tried hard to push. This will probably last just as long.

I said the exact same thing when I saw it this morning. Revival of the failed '90s "Pride" series of athletic marks.

That's the joke, bud!

Anyway, I think the thing that's bugging me is that the lion doesn't have pupils.
