This guy has no clue... Hawaii and Memphis are fine. I agree with Arizona State and Oregon State logos sucking compared to what they used to be. We are all biased but I love that NIU logo. It should go back on the helmets damn it!!

RE: Logo
My generation has a knack for being “marketing consultants” who take teams’ unique logos and turn them into something forgettable and generic.

Never hire a “marketing consultant” or “business consultant” or “branding consultant”. Ever.

RE: Logo
I've always thought the Huskie head with the logo was a bit much. I prefer just the head, or just "NIU" or a new logo that just says "Northern". I don't really like "Northern Illinois" or No. Illinois or N. Illinois.

RE: Logo
Piss on this guy. The current logo has everything.

The logo of the Huskie only head lacks the "NIU" needed to show who were.

The logo of "NIU" only leaves out the Huskie. And we are Huskies.

Leave the logo alone. It's much better than many of the ones in the article.

RE: Logo
Do a search for Andrew Doughty and it doesn't bring up this hack blogger. The first six entries are all about a well-respected author and expert on Hawaii.
As for this douche bag who has zero qualifications for reviewing logos, he simply fits the description that opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one, some are simply smelly, and many are full of s**t. Fully agree with everyone who is in favor of that logo being on our helmets. It's a unique type font, it identifies the school and the nickname in one, which is unlike so many previous attempts -- cartoonish boxer, wolf's head, running dog -- that failed to achieve that in one way or another. Whether you want to say our success coincides with this logo or the logo has coincided with our success, it's become readily recognized by real college football fans.

RE: Logo
8 worst logos needing a makeover?

I do admit the school name, mascot and nickname all in one is a little much. But let's be honest, it's out of necessity for recognition.

The logic may be be an a$$backwards attempt at a compliment. Like they don't need all that jazz to be recognized. Maybe NIU is more recognizable than we think.

+1. Whoever this guy Doughty is -- Hawaii or not -- he's been inhaling too much volcano gas. Much as I could care less about Northwestern, if it saw the need for change, it would. So would NIU. It's not up to Doughty, who writes a lot like a guy who has nothing else to do in the off-season. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

RE: Logo
I really like the current logo - to me it's the best one they've had, though the intersecting N and I was pretty good - a little too similar to Indiana though.

It's fine, but it's also bit dated and could use a refresh.

RE: Logo
I've always felt the MAC football helmets were all Arena League level in terms of their logo/decals.

College football is typically pretty basic or simplistic in their more iconic helmet logos. The MAC has, for the most part, a bunch of graphic and pictures on their helmets. I've never been a huge fan.

RE: Logo
I like the Huskie head AND the NIU so people watching start to associate the huskie head logo with NIU. I guess it does look a bit "arena-league" but I don't mind, at least for now.
