I remember a few years ago Spurticus resigned (or took a break). After the last couple of weeks, I understand. I feel like resigning my fandom... It seems everyday another bit of bad news comes.


The administration does not care. The coaching staff does not REALLY CARE. The players seem not to care.


Yet then everything in COWTOWN gets better and better.


Tell me something is on the horizon to improve this situation

by this logic, they should kill about 80% of the threads.

Feel like everyone needs to take a step away from the ledge a little bit. Itís not the only logo they will use. They released another tweet that has all of the logos. The formal logo still has the palmetto tree and gates at the horseshoe. The UofSC is the new marketing logo and the block C is still the athletic logo.

Yes but they removed 1801 from the gates as well. And I have lots of thoughts on that but that's for the political forum.

I knew about the SC feud with Southern Cal, but not that USC was an issue. Man our school has zero identity.

I get it. I can understand how people aren’t huge fans of it. People are just going over the top about it. People on social media are literally threatening to not renew season tickets...seriously. The timing isn’t perfect considering the fan base is in a foul mood with the bowl game and national championship. I’m sure they anticipated a mixed reaction.

Wait, why was 1801 removed from the gates? I'm assuming this is at the horseshoe?

I mean, what do you expect. Meh season, awful finish, rivals just won the National Championship (again) and USC trots out this lame ass logo. People are going to get tired of it.

One of my favorite quotes from UofSC's Facebook roll out announcement:

"It looks like you had a contest among freshmen marketing students and chose the loser. The "winning" design student has a 1.2 GPA, procrastinated the night before it was due, got drunk in five points, went home, turned on his grandfather's Apple IIE, and whipped this thing up in three minutes just to be sure he didn't get a zero. Good God! You might as well just use papyrus or comic sans. Seriously....did you pay a professional to do this?"

I’m just thrilled they let the winner of Mrs. Johnson’s fourth grade art contest get the honor of designing our marketing logo. The kid is a wiz on Microsoft Paint. Well done, little guy! We’re all so proud!

It's the only venue fans have to voice displeasure with any hope of effecting actual change. I stopped buying season tickets because I am not happy with the direction of the program and won't give up my whole Saturday to go watch them crap the bed.

Sure it's just one person, but if everybody starts it, the university will get the picture.

Dang, you beat me to it. I actually thought about doing a mock-up of this with papyrus to post here. Then I realized Iíd be putting more effort into message board humor than the person who ďdesignedĒ the original.

Not renewing season tickets because you donít like the direction of the program is one thing. Not renewing season tickets because of one new logo (that doesnít even impact athletics!!) is another. But thatís just me.

I wish we could hit a reset button on all of our branding, and take a fresh start. I know that wouldn’t fix this particular problem.

I think it's more just the culmination of frustration with the direction of the program.

I don't really want to get a letter asking the University for money when they go spend who knows how much on that shitty logo that a 5 year old could have made. Many people are hitting this point. I have better things to spend money on.
