    So nice to have this new staff in place.  They've provided a shot of energy that this team/program/fanbase sorely needed.  Can't wait for Spring practice.

    Speaking of fun, do we think Coach Morris will allow us to watch the spring game?

    I wonder if any other school in the nation......has a head football coach AND a head basketball coach, who both made their teams....as walk-ons?

    Grant has treated walk-ons well in his tenure....giving scholarships to both DJ and JJ. 

    As to Eric.....shouldn't say this....but some of the walk-ons he's bringing in.....impress me more than some of Littrell's signees.

    Maybe we need a Walk-On's eatery here in Denton. It was founded by an LSU walk-on. 

    Great idea!

    Even if you think UCF's Black Knight logos are just "okay" its still better than what we have.

    And you can't compare UNT to 3 of the most recognizable NFL teams that have had the same logos almost their entire existence. That's apples and oranges. But even if you do, I'd argue the Cowboys have a more in-depth active roster of logos than UNT. They have the star, the capital D, throwback Cowboy (riding horse), throwback star logo...while we just have the SOW, Flying Worm, and generic word/letter marks. 

    You're right, we don't need a new eagle every 10 years. At this point, I think the SOW has been around long enough that it needs to be the focal point of our brand. It should be to us what the Longhorn and Mustang logos are to UT and SMU. That's why I dislike the push that's been going on recently of including the university letter mark with the SOW. To improve our branding I don't think we need brand new logos. All we have to do is look to our past for inspiration while using what we currently have...

    1. Keep the SOW as the focal point. It should have a presence on every field, uniform, broadcast, etc.

    2. Greatly reduce the use of the UNT letter mark for athletics and bring back the interlocking "NT". And to stay in line with university branding keep the current font of the UNT letter mark. Small adjustments would be needed on the width and length of the letters. This would give us a secondary logo that pays homage to multiple eras of UNT athletics. And as we saw with the Mean Joe Greene throwbacks, the "NT" looks great on helmets. 

    3. Take a page out of Tulane's and Buffalo's playbook and bring back a beloved logo/character that gives a face to your brand. My choice would be this sweet bastard. Since the SOW is the main logo, I'd mostly limit this guy to merch like hoodies and tshirts and as an alternate helmet decal like Buffalo did.

    Dude, I like the way you think. I've always been a fan of SOW if it could just fit the helmet better. I'm also a fan of the alumni NT and like the new helmets, only in a different/better color combo that can be seen easier. We should claim the state silhouette since we are the University of North TEXAS.

    I really love Ousmane and I hate to criticize but he has got to just get stronger to the basket against guys he’s stronger than.  Germany is a good player but Abu should be backing his ass down more and not using a finesse finish but a strong finish.  He’s great though and love him.  Just feel like he’d be much higher percentage if he would let himself be more physical.

    This!

    I’m in the camp of, I love the worm, but only once a year…which seems to be how it’s been used.  
    I don’t mind it being on apparel.  I’ve actually bought a couple of flying worm shirts lately.  
     

    That being said, the diving eagle needs to be our main logo and it should never change.  Never.  As long as there is an UNT, our main logo should be the Kelly green diving eagle.

    Diving eagle = SOW?

    maybe so! I would say ours are more fitting because they match the wings of our logo. Also the recruits/players love them. 

     

    These are the best helmets in UNT history! - Mean Green Football -  GoMeanGreen.com

    THese are my favorite helmets. I hope we have some more variations of this helmet next year. I would love to see green helmet, white texas and white face mask. The eagle by itself on the helmet does not fit right. you either need wings or texas behind eagle moving forward. 

    I like the concept. Agree with color variations.

    Agree a large SOW does not fit well by itself on the helmet.  

    I believe with the new technology of helmet wraps, plus today's constant keep-it-fresh rebranding society, and keeping it "cool" for players and to attract recruits, we will continue to see constant change in our helmets.  We have not established enough history with a set helmet/logo.

    So much for tradition.
