    Default Script "Carolina" question

    Is this our default logo, now? I see it has taken the place of the Block "C" on SEC posters and on much of the media propoganda that the University puts out.
    I don't mind it being used once in a while, just as I don't mind the uniforms being switched up, every now and then, but I thought the script "Carolina" was just that.
    Is this part of Muschamp trying to look like Joe Morrison?

    Thanks for the feedback.
    We got shutout by Virginia, in football. Let that sink in.

    I hate it. The block C is classic.

    The block C is classic, but I hate it. I think it's ugly. There's nothing more generic than a stupid block letter.

    I think that each has it's place. Script Carolina looks very nice on baseball uniforms, for example. Block C is good where space is limited.
    Let there be football, and let it be good.

    i understand the logo gets washed out on the garnet helmet without the white circle, but still i prefer it over the script. since were keeping it, problem is having the script helmet clashes with the standard lettering on the front of the jersey. im not a fan of the vertical shoulder pad stripes on our jerseys either, id rather we went with horizontal sleeve stripes or no stripes at all.

    To answer the question:
    the script Carolina is an alternative logo but not the primary. The primary is the Block C. Muschamp does like the script and that is part of the reason why it’s getting a push.
    I'm only here for the reputation points.

    I like it. Kinda wish they would have not monked with the position of the C, but it grows on you. The stripes on the unis are the biggest offender. We have these wonderful big and bold colors and unless they can noticeably improve on them, then quit cheesing it up with dinky stripes, letters & numbers. Be bold or go home. A few of our SEC opponents have figured this out (UGA, Bama, AU).

    It's a secondary logo. Muschamp started wearing it and now the school is using it more and more. I didn't like it at first but it definitely has grown on me. I still prefer the Block C (which is still the school's primary), but I don't have a problem with the script. It definitely looks better than the gamecock by itself with no C.

    Add that ugly logo to the list of Muschamp's bad decisions!






    (Just kidding about Muschamp, but not about the ugly logo.)

    Far as I'm concerned, this is a minor irritation compared to us adapting the UofSC BS. This needs to be forgotten. It's USC dammit!

    Was the script Carolina "ugly" when Coach Joe was wearing it? If the answer is no, then your issue is NOT with the script Carolina.

    I didn't do it, it's been floating around the internet since those fugly helmets came out. It looks ok on a baseball jersey or maybe a hat. I don't like it on a helmet especially when it doesn't match the rest of the lettering.

    I can understand not liking it on a helmet. I'm not jazzed about it myself on a helmet.
    But the vitriol spewed toward the design overall is what prompted my question (albeit rhetorical).
    How many of us had script Carolina hats and shirts back in the day? Probably more of us than care to admit today.

    Yeah...there are some fashion trends that just need to stay buried.

    Maybe people see the script Carolina as being sacred (for lack of a better word) to Coach Joe's memory, and somehow using it now is disrespectful? Otherwise I don't get the hate for something we once embraced so dearly.

    Was not on the damn helmet. There's a place for it. Ball caps on the sideline, no problem.

    I like the script Carolina, I just wish we would fix the uniforms if we’re really going to use it. Also think if we’re going to use it then we should get rid of the machine font entirely but that might be an unpopular opinion.
