New Unis for UND; BJU Gets It’s Name; Another Fail for London 2012

Logo Links is a quick look at what has taken place in the logo and uniform world over this past weekend, here are your logo links for Monday, March 26th, 2012:

UND Fighting Sioux debut new look

The University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux took to the ice this weekend, their first since NCAA began enforcing their “no Native American imagery” rule forcing the team to wear new logo and nickname-less uniforms.

The uniforms aren’t actually too bad; they are green and white with a hint of black featuring NORTH DAKOTA on the front with a number separating the two words. Shoulders are green with an interlocking “ND” logo, white laces on the collar.  It looks traditional in design yet still modern in colour.

The university has also produced, yet has not unveiled, a road green and alternate black version of the uniform.

You can read some fan reactions here, and see a few photos from the games here.


Bob Jones University Debuts Name, Logo

Bob Jones University, the Greenville, South Carolina based Protestant University is re-entering inter-collegiate sports for the first time in 79 years for the 2012-13 season  and with that came the need for a name and logo.

On Friday, BJU officials announced the school would compete as the Bruins beginning with NCCAA (the extra C is for “Christian”) soccer in August. The logo features a brown and navy blue bear head peering over a BRUINS wordmark with light blue trim.

BJU athletic director Neal Ring said, “The mascot is a strong character that exudes boldness and confidence. It’s a great rallying point around which BJU fans can unite to support and encourage our teams and actually provide them a competitive advantage.”

UK Already 0-for-3 in 2012 Olympics

First it was the bizarre 2012 Summer Olympic logo, then it was the pink and purple volunteers uniforms; now the public has taken aim at the Team Great Britain athlete uniforms freshly unveiled this weekend.

The uniforms were designed by fashion designer Stella McCartney and unveiled Thursday – they feature the Union Jack, the national flag of the United Kingdom, re-coloured from royal blue and red to blue, light blue and dark navy blue.

“Oh dear! Stella, Stella – did you not think of asking ANYONE on a UK street if they thought it was reasonable for you to take the red off our Union Jack?” wrote one Facebook commenter on The Daily Mail.

Stella responded to the criticism via this message on her Twitter account: “I see many feel as strongly about the Union flag as I do! The design actually uses more red & shows more flag t an any Team GB kit since ’84.”

    The UND Fighting Sioux uniforms aren’t too bad. They look cleaner. Although if the NCAA finds the chief logo offensive, perhaps somewhere in the ND logo place a tomahawk. A little less offensive than the other logo.

  2. Matt says:

    I laughed when I saw the Bob Jones Bruins.
    I just think Bob Jones is one of the most generic names ever, it’s sounds like it’s the name used for when kids get in trouble and are asked their names and they give a fake one.

    “What’s your name son?”

    “Uhh.. Bob.. Bob Jones.”

    The UK uniforms, by far, the ugliest thing I ever saw. Do not watch for too long, nightmares could make your sleep ruff.

    Just to add, the ugliest but very close to Canada Beijing olympics unis.

    Forgot to mention, the Yugo still at first place tough.
