"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
I think the guys who designed this one should've been given a chance to submit:
Who were the dolts who designed that logo?
The same crack design team that Mr. Satellite employed I think:
hahaha, i love the patch of grass and random blue cloud over the cow...
And created this logo. They have quite the schools in Japan
Thats a big phat azz
but the backup antennae needs to be angled differently
Again I just cannot comprehend designing this logo and at NO TIME in that process did one person say, "Hey umm guys that sort of looks like umm...". No it never comes up and 6 months later they have this all over the nation. Just hard to fathom.
The Big Ten
We don't need no stinkin' name. We will now be called The Conference Formerly Known as Big Ten
Can someone please send this to the conference brain trust? Please?
Works for 10 and 12, and I see the 10 immediately without "forcing" myself to see it. This has my vote.
Saw that one and thought the same thing. Great idea. Could be cleaned up a bit, and I'm not sure I like the I in the BIG, but those are minor quibbles. I hope it wins.
I like this one a lot. Anything is better than what we have now, but this should definitely get some consideration for the new logo. If Delany is serious about changing it he should look no further.
This is funny: Big 10 logos that didn't make the cut
If Big 12 is taken, what about just renaming the conference the Large 12?
EDSBS.com had the best one I think:
Awesome 12. Or the mongooses, that's a good team name. The Fighting Mongooses.
It looks straight off of a Nike Jordan shoe, IMO.
I can't support this one. The lettering is too similar to all of the horrible looking MSU uniforms.
...best logo idea I've seen. It is bold and strong. I always like the idea of the crest/shield shape used in the background. It conveys tradition and power.
but would prefer that they just put a B infront of the 10, with the same font, like they have in the current logo. Then it's simple, and can be marketed easily.
This one is clearly the best, because the only state worth outlining in the entire conference is Michigan:
Simply put....BAD ASS!!
Should have just hosted a competition on LogoSauce to see what people could have come up with.
i would rather read another post about whether or not DB's silence hurts recruiting
...an innovative logo. I like the 0/2. Well done!
I still like the new one. If if were to be done in each schools colors, it would look very good. I think the biggest problem is with the "TEN" underneath and the cyan. I like B1G
I think it's a cool design at this size, but if you shrink it down some, I think it's going to look like the Big 18.
really like this logo.
but WAY too modern of a font. Much like pickup trucks from Japanese automakers, it looks sort of cool now, but it'll look dated and kind of silly in a few years.
Can't we just tell people that we're using a base 12 numbering system, and leave it at that?
that blog reinforces the fact that a lot of people are bad at design and don't know it. That blog and its ilk are too much like the first couple episodes of American Idol, except there's not even a tiny trace of comedic value in the bad designs as there is in the bad AI auditions (and even those hold only a tiny trace of comedic value).
