It looks as if someone decided that UMBC’s current logo wasn’t cool enough:
So, in an attempt to modernize our look, these three logo suggestions are now being offered:
I don’t know about you, but the dogs in options 2 & 3 look rabid to me – the kind of dog you see being led away by an animal control officer on the evening news. All that’s missing is the white foam around the mouth. They also seem sort of Scrappy Doo cartoonish. So, I guess if I had to make the call, I’d go with the determined yet still dignified look of the Retriever in option 1. That dog looks serious, like he’s about his business, but at the same time he’s not a danger to society. I can live with that.
Of course, now much of my UMBC fan gear will need replacing (is that part of the plan?).
