Hey all,

Was reading the Husky football blog, and they had a picture from Hec-Ed, which had a new Pac-10 Logo on it.

Here's the pic:

Looks like they added it to the arena when they were refinishing the floor. What's everyones take on it?

Personally, I think it kinda looks too much like the SEC logo. I liked the older logo, how it had 10 rays representing 10 teams.

However the new one, since it is more shield like, most likely will look better if put on jerseys.

what...is the area that the "10" is sitting in supposed to be? It looks like it's connected to the "A" somehow to form a shape...but it looks like a music note to me...?

Underneath the "A" is a mountain and the "10" has a wave to the left of it.

I think it's an upgrade, just on the font choice alone. Glad they kept the same color scheme, but am curious as to why with all of this expansion talk did this come out right now. Maybe they have no plans to ever change the conference name even if they add 2 teams...

While I think it is a downgrade, it was always going to change this summer, regardless of the moves which the Big Ten may start.

They have a new commissioner in Larry Scott, who came in after the 2008 re-fresh. In addition, the conference hired their first ever Chief Marketing Officer in March. Danette Leighton was the Vice President of Marketing and Brand Development for Maloof Sports & Entertainment and once led Sony Corporation's Sports Marketing division with emphasis on the PGA TOUR and the SONY Open In Hawaii.

If they are looking at trying to partner to form a networks, this could be part of the package.

Wonder if they will change the color for each school like the SEC does for the logo on the football fields?

Schools have done what the want to the former logo and update. Cal and Oregon State have recolored it on their basketball floors. In terms of football, it isn't places on field like the SEC; it that changes, then it would probably be just in white paint.

Plus, the SEC uses the 'circle logo' for football, but the newer font on basketball courts to make it more of a branding issue than they should have.

SEC uses the same letters as the "circle logo" on the basketball courts...just with out the circle. Seems like the brand is the same to me.
