  1. A fun time. Always nice to have a cold beer at a ball game no matter how ugly the game is.
  2. I’m salivating for the gold hoodie and navy polo they teased on Twitter. Come on UA!!!!
  3. Thank you for gathering this info. I can definitely see a few things from the old logos being incorporated, including what looks like a FedEx-esque arrow hidden in there. I guess my issue with it is they're so very very subtle that it almost seems like a stretch to me. If the Z was a bit more obvious I think this would have gone over a lot better. Also is that supposed to be a kangaroo shape at the bottom? Again, it's great that these things are included, but the people this logo is geared toward will largely only ever see a fancy A. Die hard fans can see the nuances, but that's about it. I guess I would just like to hear from Guthrie/Miller a dissection of the logo and how exactly it signifies moving forward and all that jazz that they claim.
  4. Haha! Thanks for the info, of course they post all kinds of merch on social media and aren’t selling any of it yet other than the most basic.
  5. What all did they have at the bookstore? Did they have the gold hoodie?
  6. Court looks sweet, helmets look nice, field looks okay. It’s been a roller coaster but the logo is fine and at the end of the day, I’m Akron til’ I die. Time to order some merch! Go Zips! #1Akron
  7. Well said. It’s been stated that UA alumni and fans were consulted, well it must not have been many, or ones that actually care. Joe Bosack has designed some cool logos, this ones is lazy and boring and most importantly, it doesn’t say AKRON to me at all, in any way.
  8. The Akron Black Stockings vintage baseball club isn’t thrilled either 😂
  9. On one of the Facebook pages there’s a link to the bookstore that just has a navy blue T shirt or hoodie right now.
  10. “The Athletic” has an awfully similar look
  11. Fortunately I was expecting to be underwhelmed so I don't really care. It's a fine A. But if you showed this to anyone who either didn't watch the video or didn't know anything about Akron, the Z gets completely lost. I like the idea, but a more prominent Z or the Z logo were accustomed to being included in this design would be much better. Design was done by Joe Bosack's company, who is the creator of the MAC shield logo and I believe the A-Roo as well. I would have expected better. Oh well.
  12. Very strange to see the Hoban exodus, that's for sure. Tecca's brother-in-law and former Zip Will Fleming is the offensive coordinator at Valpo.
  13. I am always skeptical of new logos. It feels like almost every sports team I’ve ever seen change logos ends up embarrassing themselves with something overly flashy or silly. I’ll wear the gear, but I’m definitely nervous.
