Yep, not a fan. But then again, I am not a fan of our Lion/Bear with a lions head logo either. The current Lion was created in the 1990's and looks like a 12 year old created it. If anyone needs a redo on their logo it is ODU.

RE: William and Mary Major Announcement
It'll grow on me in time, I'm sure; I always react harshly to a new wordmark or logo when I see it for the first time. But the silver-piped logo is an indistinguishable mess and the ampersand reminds me of the GE logo:

That's awful.

Yuck. Perhaps if the & was smaller, and in a contrasting color it would be better?
The weird font isn't good IMO. Either go full block or fancy script. This middle ground isn't appealing.

I do think however that it's better than our ODU font. I think it suffers from the same middle ground, problem.

Agreed Im not a fan of the new W&M font or the ODU font. I cant wait for an ODU rebranding.

Propose something if you feel comfortable doing so. I'm not crazy about what we have but I'm no designer, either.

First reaction- gross

It seems the household names in sports tend to keep the same logo/look forever, that's what makes it classic. Institutions trying to gain recognition keep changing looks-dumb.

It's always something trendy and soon dated.

I don't mind our lettered logo or the crown, in fact I like all of our logos with the exception that we used a bear body and slapped a lion's face over the head *facepalm* and they didn't do a good job of hiding the bear at all lol.

The lion face and mane is great, if they used that and updated the body it would do a world of difference. The rest of the logos wouldn't be affected but it would get a slight upgrade. But then again, if you're working on a new logo to re-brand, you may as well restart

I do lots of sketches, wouldn't even know where to turn something like that in.

I've seen flyers on campus in the past for graphics design interns. I've always been a pencil and paper guy myself so never considered applying. Now that I graduated, I doubt they will want to listen to me.

Here is who you'd send a logo design to at ODU;

Thanks. I'll start working some stuff up.
When I got invited to the study with the Marketing firm ODU hired last year, I gave them my opinion on the subject. They asked about all the logos and stuff.

If W&M wanted to highlight the ampersand so much, they should have made the ampersand look like their griffin mascot. At least then it would explain why so much emphasis is being place on the and in William and Mary.

The ampersand is huge on their new logo.

I think the color contrast helps. I feel it brings a level of dignity and refinement to the logo. I don't think this change reflects the history or refinement of W&M.

Or just to ensure they are differentiated from this company.

I actually like this logo, and I think the emphasis on "And" could be in line with a lot of what you see at universities. And = options, And = Diversity, And = more, etc...

Laycocks announced his retirement following the season. Anyone think a coach from ODU will apply? I gotta a feeling our Assistant Head Coach Ron Whitcomb would be a top candidate for a head coach position at the FCS level.

Nah, the new AD has hundreds of contacts from around the country. Hell, W&M people were pissed off they named a president with Harvard background. Just imagine if they dipped into OD'effin'U.

RE: William and Mary Major Announcement
It seems like most coaches announce retirements like this because they want one of their assistants to get the job. Wouldn't be shocked if either coordinator got the job.
