Nebraska's "Huskers" wordmark logo...

Recommended Posts

The other night I watched alma mater #2 (Georgia Tech) in a basketball game at Nebraska.  Although I had seen it before in print, ads, and other such items, this was the first time I had ever seen the weird script "Huskers" wordmark logo in use on a jersey (and on center court).

 

It's HIDEOUS

 

Nothing about it makes me think of athletics. Instead it seems evocative of the logo of an upscale department store:

"The best styles, the best selection, and the best price... you'll get it all at Huskers!"
 


Probably because of its similarity to these:

I never thought of it that way before, but now I only will.

 

Bring back Field's.

Nebraska has used that logo for years it was just on hiatus from 2012-2013 until 2015-2016 seasons

 

It also makes me think of:

This is the logo I think of when I think of the tail end of Tom Osborne's tenure.

I never made this connection before.  Probably because the main department store in my neck of the woods had a wordmark out of the 1890s.

Noooooo! I love the wordmark, probably because of stupid lizard brain nostalgia. But I still love it. It’s unique for sports. I don’t see what’s wrong with an upper Midwest state aligning themselves with the department store lifestyle lol.

I enjoy the logo on its own, can’t stand it when placed over the N. Either way, very 90s.

Personally love the script logo, I agree with TenaciousG though, probably more from a nostalgia standpoint.  It is very 90's, and I'm ok with that.

I was surprised to find out it exists as a live font.
