During todays Ohio State spring game both sides wore a VT logo on their helmets. It looked cool and was a nice move. But if you notice it's not the same logo as Tech wears on their helmets. These ones are maroon trimmed in orange, unlike Tech's which are white trimmed in orange.

those look good, and if were to have asked me, the VT logo looks like its black outlined in white outlined in red... like the VT logo in OSU colors, which IMO would be a great way to show their support

Might wanna check your colors. It looks like VT's Maroon and Orange to me.

That was a nice move by OSU.

Am I the only one who would like to see either a plain VT or the academic logo (assuming there is one) as opposed to the stylized athletic logo? I think the athletic logo would be more appropriate if there was a tragedy involving a sports team. Either way, it's a nice gesture.

Ok, now maybe I should just leave well enough alone, but I figured since my opinion is different than many others ill throw it in. While im starting to better understand the idea of moral support that wearing VT logos everywhere would bring, and im as well starting to realize that the intentions are moreso than not good, but I still dont quite get what wearing a VT sticker on a helmet does in any real terms of progress. But then again, maybe im missing something.

And really, im not trying to start another huge VT debate (which while fascinating to read, is getting quite big), I just have a differing opinon from many.

I Dont think its really about progress, I think its just a sign of respect and class to show support after something tragic happened. It shows that the university/team is thinking about VT has their condonlences.

It shows how as a people, we can all be close, or respect one another, even though we may be different.

As I was reading this thread, I was thinking of posting essentially the same thing. As someone who lost a friend on 9/11, I feel like I might have a slight window into what being indirectly affected by random violence feels like... and I would be more in favor of people actually getting out there and doing something about this rather than showing "support". It's great that people recognize that a tragedy occurred, but it doesn't help anybody. Why are submachine guns still legal? Why are handguns still legal? Neither of these categories has any legitimate use other than killing humans.

We're pretty much the worst industrialized country in terms of gun violence. It's time to do something about that. Something more than wearing maroon and orange to work.

I was thinking the same thing about the academic logo, but the more I thought about it, I was here at the University of Washington for about a quarter before I realized what our academic logo was, I had never really though about the academic vs. sports logos until then, becuase in high school they were one in the same esentially. My though it that more people will recognize the VT sports logo rather than the academic logo, which is why they go that route. Again, either way, credit to them.

Well said, both of you. I feel the same way.

While I can see where each of you look at this situation, but generally, a College/University seal is strictly used for official university documents, like one's diploma and transcripts, or in regards to a school's Board of Regents or Trustees. Each school has specific style guidelines in regards to the usage of the seal. Plus, as athletic logos and workmarks are released in greater number, they can be reporduced more often and in greater number. Unless, the bookstore was raided, finding enough decals with the seas, formal or informal, would be difficult.

I have been employed at two schools where a general logotype was used during a non-chancellor event, but see University Relations carry the seal with them for more formal events.

OHIO wore VT helmet stickers as well

we also wore a 26 on the other side for an Ohio soccer player that died during Spring Break

Interesting that the font for the "26" is different on the two helmets. Hmmmm... I guess that's why they go to Ohio, and not Miami!!! :)

I agree that we have a lot to do as a society to stop guns and gun violence. However, I'm not sure why you're pitting wearing VT logos and maroon and orange against getting out and doing something. Can't we do both? And how is the Ohio State spring football game going to stop gun violence? This is a great gesture to wear the "VT" and show support and solidarity among sports teams and universities. And I think it will indirectly have a positive impact on gun control.

The more these stickers and colors appear at major sporting events, the more people talk about it and hopefully influence each other to stop violence.

Columbus Destroyers have their coaching staff wearing VT polos and the players are wearing a small VT patch on the back of the helmets. Looks pretty nice. They also broke out their red alt jerseys
