Horrible.

I thought this looked like a greasy version of the St. Louis Billiken, with huge cheeks and gash for a mouth, with a little Cowboy hat...

Now I see the inverse.

Seriously, UNLV's old branding was mediocre but it was still identified with Tark's Sharks. Choosing this really strange logo now removes the last visual vestige of those teams. Bad move.

The new logo looks like a generic avatar from a video game.

RE: OT: New UNLV logo
This new logo almost seems like a ploy to remove some of the undertones of their rebel imagery and identity...

I say... Why fight it? This should be their logo. 04-cheers

I like your suggestion, however, considering Nevada was not a part of the Confederacy......

That, if anything, should be the logo for the Old Myth Rebels.

I agree. What an odd logo. The gray on the right is what? Sky and shirt? -Awful.

Now that the face is pointed out I see it immediately but when I first saw it I had no idea what it was. I agree with those that say it's too stylised and therefore confusing.

Don't care if their logo has rainbows and unicorns or whatever else, this league doesn't need them. My
