Interesting choice where they split it horizontally.  You have the pretty thin bottom of the top part of the S, and the even thinner point on the bottom B.  A different font might work better so that you don't have those oddities. Also the circular sun seems odd to me contrasting with the square spaces of the letters. I would've opted for much rounder lettering.

This sucks and I need not provide any evidence why.  It is garbage.

As the self-appointed Sun Belt representative of these boards, I think I like this better than either of the previous incarnations. The current/soon-to-be-previous logo looks really bad when placed on jerseys. Just look at how terrible this thing looked.

To be fair, Ark State did it about as poorly as you possibly could.. check out Georgia State's uniforms for an instant improvement in application

I don't hate it. I do think the (now-possibly) old logo is better, but I'll hold further judgement until something official comes out.

Is branding mandated by the conference? Or perhaps the schools want to make clear their conference affiliations for recruits.

I think that the conference wants the new logo to go in effect at a specific time, and USA was laying down new turf and to be in compliance with the SBC, they put the logo in now, earlier than the required date.

Even with better applications, the fan logo's design is awkward on uniforms. Maybe if they left out the wordmark it would be better, but I imagine they want the conference's name or at least initials to be shown.

I like it! They tried for the retro look but the head looks kinda weird.

Hopefully this means that Temple will settle their identity crisis among all the different shapes they’ve used in recent memory.

New logos and wordmarks for Sam Houston State. They officially designated black as an accent mark rather than blue

Good update for them. I agree, the bearkat head logo looks a little weird, but better than their old one.

 

And where have I seen that old logo before 🤔
