Just like Ohio State fans frequently (annoyingly) refer to OSU as simply “The” in casual conversation, does that mean that we can start calling our school the “Of.

“I pull for the Of.”

We have the market cornered on prepositions. I guess we should run with it.

I kind of like it.
And i don’t mind it, because all i know is the block C logo.
Not like we are going to sell merchandise with the monogram on it.
People buy clothing and whatnot for athletics

I like it, I am tired of being USCjr by the national folks. USC will always be So Cal., imo, by everybody else. Lets make our own winning niche. We can still chant USC, etc. I see no big deal.

Default Re: No longer USC

Just wondering, has anyone made issue of the color of the UofSC logo being wrong? On a Gamecocks page on Facebook, the admin referred to the color as burgundy instead of garnet, but did it in a way that implied that our school color was burgundy instead. I knew for sure he knew the right color, but when someone commented "it's garnet, not burgundy!" I replied in agreement, and he took us to task for insulting him that he didn't know it was garnet (fair enough). I apologized but further said that at least to me, it was close enough on my browser to not notice the difference. He proceeded to dismiss my apology and go on a rant about how the logo is clearly burgundy and not garnet and we were very insulting to him.


Surprisingly I wasn't banninated but I did note that the other person is no longer in the group, either by their choice or by banhammer.



TLDR: not only does the logo suck, it's the wrong color (maybe)

I think we need a whole new sports logo. Go back to the gamecock by itself, but make it much larger.

To the folks complaining about the logo itself, that is certainly a valid issue. To those who are upset that it doesn't say "USC", you should know it can not. We lost a trademark battle in court in 2010 based on a baseball trademark. The court's decision said the other USC had trademarked it first and we would be causing marketplace confusion.

We can disagree, but that's the bottom line for not having a simple "USC" logo.

I see where they are going with this.

Later this year you will see a stylized gamecock that incorporates the "U" and "Of" with the "SC" on an updated logo (may be an alternate football logo or basketball rollout.

They are trying to get us used to UofSC now before we see the Uof

still sucks tho.

That's my thing. You're a freaking university. Have your students in those majors design something. If used give the free tuition. Don't ink a contract for almost a quarter of s million dollars to people in Ohio for crying out loud. And if you want to use an outside source are their no design firms in SC? Seems like this should also maybe have been up for a state bid?

But you can't trademark letters of the alphabet or abbreviations, only how its presented, fonts, etc. Plus names are registered on a state by state basis. So there is no reason we couldn't keep it USC. Only how it is presented.


Just like the OSU's, all the Deltas, the Uniteds, etc.

Then we had TERRIBLE lawyers. having gone through TRADEMARK BATTLES myself. I can tell you that a lot has to do with who used it first.

If that’s their plan, they’ve rolled it out terribly. They should have come out with their best logo off the bat, so people would at least like something about it. To use a terrible logo with a motto you know will be hated is just dumb. It’s a lot easier to win people over if you’re hearing, ‘I hate the idea of U of SC, BUT that logo is awesome.’ Instead they just decided to suck both ways.

As most people on here know, I own Photography and Graphic design businesses.


Professionally, I think the logo is a joke.


My people could have turned out better in 20 minutes or less.


I cannot believe that the Art Department at the University that I graduated from could not do better. Any first year graphics and design student could.


Then I find out that they PAID to have this monstrosity created


WOW... JUST WOW
