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.

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.

I totally couldn't see the face... I figured that the "red star" was an "eye" and that "the face" was looking at me head on. (Think DC comics "Jonah Hex" here...)

Now that somebody actually pointed out the face, in profile, it works a little better but I still think it sucks.

The logo looks good to me. I saw nothing confusing about it but that's just me.

RE: OT: New UNLV logo
i don't personally like it but the criticism from twitter about everything constantly gets old. what else would twitter have criticized if it was around throughout the last 100, 200 or even 300 years? The American flags design would be criticized. The Green Bay Packers logo would be criticized. What about the yankees? Or Ohio State?
