Absolutely atrocious. Looks like a 1st grader's coloring book. 03-puke I'm not buying any gear with that logo on it. Embarrassing.

Where did you see the women's soccer image?

I'm guessing this is the one everybody is discussing, cropped it down to fit. I just can't tell if the white is a part of the logo, or a part of the image behind it.

Its part of the logo although the original one that twitter account posted (and has now been deleted) had another shade of yellow in it as well, similar to the yellow/gold that this website uses.

Eh, it's fine.

Looks like one we used to have on football helmets (see Bronco'14's avatar).

What the hell is going on in the marketing department? First it was a Buster rebrand which is still terrible and embarrassing. #BringBackOldBuster and now its this crappy logo? I know people from WMU read this board. I hope they fix it.

This ghost bronco looks like he smiling. Or at least “smirking”.

He’s happy, we’re not

Well Dicksman, you’ll just have to endure.

Part of it is constant changing of leadership and roles. The Buster change didn't come from this regime.

This new logo - which looks childish - did.

University of Michigan has gone through some branding issues over the years as well. The Michigan Stadium "halo" comes to mind: http://www.annarbor.com/news/-the-halo-ann-arbor/

If enough people come forward and complain, we can reverse this BS.

RE: What’s the latest on the WMU color and logo rebrand
Until its official I am not going to lose my mind over the new design... once I see it at an official capacity... but if they lose the ghost bronco they will lose out on a TON of potential future merchandise sales...

As noted above by BroncoMD is that we need to make out feelings known to the administration...

Agreed. When MSU was going to change their logo to one that looked like an elephant with a big dick?

I'm fine w/ that. It's the same concept as what we've had, just tweaked a little. A full Ghost. Most people won't even notice.

I'm just confused what happened to the Rebrand Project from a few years ago where the logo was officially going to be the horse head over the W, & football using the Ghost.

That was the logo for the last few years until new administration led by a new VP of marketing (with no WMU ties) forced another rebrand on them.

To be honest, I hadn't seen this logo in the second picture and it's really bad. Somebody with more power than me with the higher ups needs to be a stop to this.

^ You talking about the W with the state of michigan? That actually isn't too terrible compared to the updated ghost bronco or whatever you want to call it.

Yeah, I kinda like the classic W in classic brown & gold.

And why couldn't they just keep this Ghost Bronco with the classic W?
