It won't be long before the animal rights people will be claiming that "dogs everywhere are offended by this repulsive and degrading" mascot...and will begin protests and demonstrations to rid society of such oppression. :rolleyes:

What was their previous logo? I was always familiar with the orange "T", but I never know of a dog of any kind.

Besides being a fairly pussy looking dog, this logo has other problems. I'm a graphic designer who does some logo work, and one of the biggest issues here is that this logo has so many colors and such complex lines that it can't be reproduced easily and cost effectily in different mediums. How good will this look in one-color, say on a fax cover sheet? How expensive will it be to embroider it onto the left chest of a polo shirt?

I'm a KU fan (despite being a K-State employee), so this is in no way a homer comment, but the K-State powercat is the perfect college logo in so many ways. It looks tough and modern, and works great in one-color (in fact, it's basically always one color). It's effective, affordable, and easy to reproduce just about anywhere.

This Tennesee logo sucks on many, many levels.

I doubt it. They have had this mascot for quite some time, but never had it on its official logo. Kinda like Texas A&M. They have a dog named "Revolie". I think its a real dog. :hmmm:

Apparently the big boring orange T will still be the university's primary logo, they just came up with these as secondary logos to feature the school mascot for those (like me) who never had a clue that they had a mascot.

What's a dog got to do with Volunteers?

Shouldn't their mascot be a United Way Volunteer, or a Salvation Army bellringer or something?

That would be a good logo for them if they change their team name to the University of Tennessee Constipation.

Old school Willie is actually very decent as well, but I prefer the powercat. But yeah, it would seem that K-State has a history of athletic logos that would pass most graphic designer's taste tests with flying colors.
