OT: Nike changes Purdue's logo

OT: Nike changes Purdue's logo

In the wake of my earlier board post about Northwestern getting Under Armour-ized, Purdue's student newspaper has published a story about how Nike has issued the university a new logo.

"It's really a Nike driven initiative," Associate Athletics Director Tom Schott said.

I had no idea that Nike and possibly other apparel companies were at liberty to up and change a university's logo. Apparently Phil Knight rules all.

Isn't this stuff supposed to happen to Purdue?

If there ever was any question whether UCLA would be competitive for the 2011 football season, it has been answered decisively today:

OG Stan Hasiak dismissed, academically ineligible.

Senior Sean Sheller began spring ahead of Hasiak but moved to left tackle when junior Jeff Baca broke his left ankle. Sheller, who subsequently went down with a broken hand, is expected to begin fall camp at left tackle and remain there until Baca returns, perhaps in October. The only other guards listed on the end-of-spring depth chart are redshirt freshman Wade Yandall and walk-ons Sam Saultz and Jay Barlow.

Only one of UCLA’s four incoming freshman is projected to play guard — Ben Wysocki (6-4, 265) of Los Alamitos High. Another option might be JC transfer Albert Cid (6-4,320), who verbally committed to the Bruins in May after playing for Citrus Community College in 2010.

Neuheisel is 4-8, 7-6 and 4-8. And still nothing set at quarterback.
