Eagle Mans top 12 collegiate logos are all P5 schools...with one exception to SMU the lone G5.

(the church boys in Dallas can thank the Ford men in Detroit for designing their Mustang logo)

These logos are simple, balanced and easy to identify. They all have traditional college look and feel.

"Letters are Better" for college

I'm not sure what the point of this is. I can think of a lot of problems we should address that could help recruiting FAR more so than whether or not our bumper sticker logo actually says "North Texas". I don't necessarily have a problem with the interlocked "NT", but the diving eagle on the side of the helmet looks far better than the "NT" helmet shown here. I think the UNT font they've chosen to go with looks really good too.

There's PLENTY of college football programs who have been successful with an iconic emblem rather than interlocked letters (Texas, Florida State, Clemson, USC, Michigan State), and even some with nicknames or mascot names written out (Ole Miss, Florida).

Finally, the last thing we need to do is change up again. The vast majority of the most iconic, successful college athletic programs in the country are thought of as such not because of their branding, but because of the stability of their brand.

BTW, it would be a sad, sad day if we ever let Nike do to us what they've done with Oregon. about 296 of their unbelievably ridiculous 300 possible uniform combinations looks like hammered diarrhea. I think of these new school, different-every-week, ZERO tradition college football uniforms as a stupid and unfunny joke that needs very badly to go away, but probably never will.

I guess if I were begrudgingly forced to embrace today's different-every-week college football uniform (vomit fart), the interlocked "NT" helmet wouldn't be all that bad for one of the alternate helmets. The diving eagle still needs to be the primary iconic emblem we're should focus on in our marketing efforts.

jquincy...the point is...for our Athletic Dept. to push for an additional NT logo to our current brand assortment.

Do we want to look & brand more like P5 school or G5 school?

Add the same NT that is used on our letterman jacket.

That way North Texas can use it when and where as needed.

Question: What logo do the schools, that you listed, put on their baseball team hat?

Answer: Texas = T, Florida State = interlocked FS, Southern Cal = interlocked SC, Clemson = C, Michigan State = Spartan Head or S. Ole Miss = M, Florida = F

most schools have a good lettered logo...whether its one, two or three letters doesn't matter. Looks more collegiate.

When I think of Texas, I think of the Longhorn. Florida State? The rocked back, screaming Seminole head. USC? The Trojan on the side of the helmet. Clemson? Tiger paw print. Mich. State? The Spartan helmet. Ole Miss? The words "Ole Miss". Florida? The gator head emblem or the word "Gators" as seen on the side of their football helmets.

I'm not against the interlocked "NT", I just hope you're not suggesting we make that our primary logo, replacing the diving eagle. I would be more on board with your idea if you put the interlocked "NT" in the current font that everything associated with UNT is written in.
