The French surrender again
https://apnews.com/1cc06da966a7c42576fd6...ce=Twitter

Quote:The University of Virginia is changing the logos it uses for its athletics teams just two months after they were unveiled after criticism that a design element referred to the school’s history with slavery.

Fans raised objections to the serpentine curves put on the handles of the sabres below the V for Virginia and on the Cavalier shield. They were meant to mimic “the design of the serpentine walls” that long stood on the campus, according to a statement from the school’s athletics department on Monday.

RE: The French surrender again
Apparently the walls were designed by Thomas Jefferson so that you didn't have to see the slaves. The handle on the sabre was patterned after the serpentine walls. So now it's just a regular handle. Non-Virginia fans probably won't even notice the difference in the logo.

The "new for 2020" logos stunk. The "new new" logos stink a little less. UVa belongs in the Pac-12.

Their logo didn't look any different to me other than the computerized shading on the V.

Was that really the "update"?

Yes. The entire change is the handle of the sabre. The old logo has a wavy handle matching the serpentine walls on campus.

Ah, I had to look it up. I didn't even know they updated it a couple months ago.

It's about time.

I have long been offended by those serpentine designs on the handles of those sabers.

I sometimes find handlebar mustaches offensive - does that count?

I think it’s the feather in his hat. No straight man is gonna put a feather in his hat like that. At least not since the 1600’s anyway

He’s pondering why his sabre no longer has that comfy serpentine handle.

No, it's his association with UVA.

Hey Jim, every conference has that one school that is different. Call them more metro, emotional or flamboyant...but that is okay. The ACC is inclusive.

You mean it exists for students that can't do math and science?

Be careful, math and science have been deemed racist.

Folks that think that is a joke.....it isn't it's a REAL movement being pushed by some universities now.

I would expect SEC schools to fight math & science since those things could stand in the way of recruiting.
