Logo Revolts

This is quite possibly the disgusting thing I've ever seen. It makes the Burger King jersey look like the Habs.

The best decision Mike Keenan made during his time with the Blues.

Most Ole Miss fans don't like these mascots.

Ole Miss should make Admiral Akbar their mascot.

YES!

Marquette sees your 'logo' revolt and raises you a 'renaming your team the Marquette Gold' revolt.

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/18/sports/ncaabasketball/18marquette.html?pagewanted=all

At least a good logo came out of that whole debacle:

But yeah, MU could've saved themselves a lot of future headaches if they'd have just reverted to Hilltoppers or Golden Avalanche upon dropping the Warriors tag.

Will never understand why Marquette dropped the Warriors nickname, because there was an easy solution at the time to avoid the Indian symbolism controversy. Marquette should have kept the Warriors name, but changed the logo to refer to a different type of warrior, without any Indian connotations. One example of another alternative was the later use of a futuristic warrior carrying a lightning bolt, used by the NBA's Golden State Warriors. There was definitely a workable solution out there which could have kept the history of the Warrior nickname without offending anyone. The Marquette basketball program has been the premier sport for that university for decades, with Final Four appearances, and a National Title in 1977. Taking the limp name of Golden Eagles was such a disappointment, hell, I'm not even a grad of the school. Sad situation.

As a Cowboys fan, I'd say the "double star" nonsense. I don't know if fan outrage killed it, but I can't think of a single fan I know that liked it.

Good riddance.

Double star? Pictures?

These

The "Little Giants" jerseys.

I really like this.

Because nothing says "Ole Miss Rebels" quite like an anthropomorphic shark wearing a suit.

I like the Ben Franklin idea but the design is terrible.

It's too bad they backed out of this. I love this as a minor league identity.

That was my first thought as well. Apparently the Ben Franklin everyone hears about doesn't give the whole story.

No kidding. Hip Hop was better than those. Which isn't saying much.

A lot of fans are clamoring for the return of Big Shot, who was basically a big over-stuffed goof. The team confirmed via Twitter today that:

1. A new mascot (not one of those designs) will be introduced for this season.

2. The blue jerseys will actually be worn at some point. They will be (as we saw in the video game) the same as the road jersey, just blue.

3. They are working on a throwback PHILA jersey.

4. They may wear a 50th season patch this season. Not sure yet.

They even wore a blue version!

There's a whole group of posters on this site that have a strange love for these... I don't get it. These uniforms made me hate the Cowboys even more, and I didn't think that was possible.

These and the Patriots uniforms with the giant elvii on the shoulders... they seem to go hand and hand with people... love them or hate them.

I don't know if a team in New Hampshire, which is firmly Red Sox territory, would want to come close to invoking the Yankees' Uncle Sam hat, though.

New Mexico State had a revolt when our original Pistol Pete was modernized in 2000's.

This was our original Pistol Pete

image002.jpg

This was the modernized version made in 2005. The big complaint was he was missing his pistols and fans called him Lasso Larry instead.

QOVSCDWYBGDHLCC.20050815174335.jpg

After a few years of complaining, Pistol Pete got his guns back.

new-mexico-state-logo.png?w=224&h=197

I personally prefer the black hat and guns look.

Wow, so what's the story here. Why does Ok State's logo look so much like that old NM St logo? Who copied who?

Actually Pistol Pete was a real cowboy who avenged his father's murder. He wound up selling his likeness to the University of Wyoming, Oklahoma State, and New Mexico state. So nobody is really ripping anyone else.

For completeness (best version I could find online--sorry about the cheesy wordmark on the left-hand side):

I would not expect anything less. Sports Illustrated once said that NMSU has the most politically incorrect fight song with this line. "We will pop a keg of booze, wobble in our shoes, and drink to the Aggies win or loose."

I still think I prefer Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech:

I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech, and a hell of an engineer—

A helluva, helluva, helluva, helluva, hell of an engineer.

Like all the jolly good fellows, I drink my whiskey clear.

I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer.

Oh! If I had a daughter, sir, I'd dress her in White and Gold,

And put her on the campus to cheer the brave and bold.

But if I had a son, sir, I'll tell you what he'd do—

He would yell, 'To hell with Georgia!' like his daddy used to do.

Oh, I wish I had a barrel of rum and sugar three thousand pounds,

A college bell to put it in and a clapper to stir it round.

I'd drink to all the good fellows who come from far and near.

I'm a ramblin', gamblin', hell of an engineer!
