This one looks like something out of a Tom and Jerry cartoon.

It may be just me, but that Denver Pioneer looks like he's in no shape to shoot a gun.

It's really about the facial expressions with these.

 

The flirty animals for UC Davis and Colorado, The creeper for Centenary. The sadness in what I assume is Muhlenberg and Georgia Tech. The Tamalpais Ram that's mad you walked in on it naked. The deranged Wofford Terrier.

 

And dammit, if that Poet is from Whittier they need the anxious facepalming poet on their helmets just once.

It's actually Colorado Mines the Orediggers, his name is Blaster the Burro.

But yes, expressions are key in the vintage logos. It's something that makes them kid-friendly and aggressive all at once.

Maybe got a hold of the cash crop. Or he's been up all night.

I’m pretty sure this has been posted, but I’d LOVE to have this on a cap.

Alcohol is considered a PED in competitive shooting, according to the NCAA..

Donald! I've always loved the fact that they used Donald Duck as the mascot there.

They actually have a deal in place with Disney to be able to use Donald.

Fun topic!  Happy to see it resurrected!  Though I can't vouch for whether the logo is a true replica of something old, or is faux vintage, I figure it belongs.

wasn't there a tutorial in this thread on what programs are used to modernize the old logos? I'd like to try it myself, instead of asking.

UCSBC isn't UC Santa Cruz (the Banana Slugs).

 

UCSBC was the University of California Santa Barbara College (which is now UCSB, the Gauchos)

They did at one point....but I thought that deal ended.

 

 

EDIT: They did, back in 2010

That's only them agreeing to say that the costumed sideline mascot is not Donald.  They still have a deal for all the mascot logos  From the article:

The UO/Disney licensing agreement remains in effect for the printed logos on sweat shirts and the like.

They also rolled out a fauxback in 2014 I believe with Donald on the helmets and sleeves.
