I know the art work isn't the best, but give me a break; I’m not that Photoshop guy. I think the idea is great, so I hope anyone out there who is more artistically capable would be able to run with this and reply. The better part here, I feel, is also the story behind the idea:
It’s Saturday, November 6th, and I am at Matilda's (the greatest Michigan bar in Chicago) with some friends watching the most exciting game of the season. At halftime, my friends and I are a pretty hammered, and I have the bright idea that we should try and come up with a new logo for the Big Ten right there at the bar. So I grab some bar napkins and some pens, and challenge everyone that the worst logo has to buy the next round. After much frustration, I jot down this masterpiece - like last supper type masterpiece. Yeah, I’m hammered, so of course I think I’ve got skills like Da Vinci, but when I looked at the napkin the next day, I was still mildly impressed. Below are the original napkin and a cleaned up version. Anyone have Delany's email?
