I can only dream of ODU ever having athletes even fairly close to the caliber of the Bears, very impressive.

As the Baylor coach said, "It's not the X's and O's. It's the Jimmy's and the Joe's".

ODU could use a few of those Jimmy's and Joe's for sure.

Haha. They don’t play any freshman either. And they only start one guy over 6’5.

Congrats to the Baylor Bears!

Also, their logo was the one that made me think that whoever designed our logo clearly used a bear and slapped a lion face over it lol

They can shoot the 3 and are a very physical bunch.


I think our logo is a better design.

I HATE our logo, always have, always will. It looks cheap and cartoonish in my opinion.

RE: The 2021 NCAA tournament thread
I had not seen that particular Baylor logo, but I see the resemblance and I agree on all points. Our logo looks like a cheap pastiche in comparison. Something more definitively lion-esque would be preferable. Better yet, focus less on the lion and more on the Monarch/royalty aspect. Big Blue is always going to look goofy in person, as all mascots do, so no fixing that.

The same way the teams with bigger players win. Come back to us with your snarky posts when ODU has Baylor like talent, plays a similar style to what they play, and makes it to the Final Four.

Baylor adopted that logo two years after we did according to Chris Creamer.

There is nothing wrong with our logo. Sit and spin - or propose something better.

I am not a graphic designer so I will leave a redesign to others...but the lion looks like a 10 year old did a crappy photo shop job and just slapped a lion head on a bears body, actually it looks like the put the lion face right over the bears face and the rest is a bear.

We have had this discussion before. There is another school with a bear logo that is the spitting image of the ODU logo, just all bear rather than the lion face. It may have been back on the CAA boards
