UMKC (Missouri-Kansas City of the WAC) Kangaroos just went back to the fighting kangaroo design as a homage to their past.  New is the front-facing kangaroo upper-body, KC monogram, and font.  Text seems to emphasis the 'Kansas City' more without the 'UMKC'.  Colors are similar with a new 2nd shade of blue.  This was designed by Old Hat Creative.  Source Article.  This article shows some cool pictures of the evolution of the kangaroo.  (Previous logos on mothership)

Except that Roger’s eyes are symmetrical and his shoulders aren’t on his back.

Love me a unique moniker, and UMKC certainly has it! I remember playing the old NCAA basketball games on the Xbox and loving their original sweater Kangaroo logo.

I like the way this new logo looks. Also got to love the new typeface they're rolling out.
