Have you ever seen a logo and noticed little things that you wish could be better? If you’re like the vast majority of people, the answer is definitely “no,” but I’m not one of those people. So over the years, I’ve made it my mission to find college football logos that could use some tweaking.
This year’s edition is available below, but you can also browse through my past submissions from 2019, 2020 and 2021.
This year, it’s not about debugging outright bugs, it’s more about simplifying logos that are a bit crowded or seem to contain a lot of unnecessary elements. These, more than previous versions, are more about personal preference, so you might not think it’s much of an upgrade. But, well, this is my article, so I’ll do whatever I want.
Baylor updated the brand several years ago, and while the excessive uniformity of its colors was a smart move, the random edges in its logo seem exceptionally unnecessary. So they are gone now. I also separated the U from the bottom of the B.
One of the most underrated slogans in all of college sports, despite looking at it with a critical eye, definitely needs some cleaning. The man/tail and cowboy and his hat, in particular, could have been better. True, there are professional designers who can do a much better job than me, but I did my best.
The smallest disc on this list, but did you know that the right horn is slightly lower than the left? There is absolutely no reason for this to happen, so voila, it’s fixed.
New Mexico Lobos
This is more of a simplification/simplification than anything else. Overall, it’s a pretty cool logo, but it looks outdated with italic outlines and multiple sharpening.
That “L” and “U” are an absolute mess. The edges, as well as some weird shading where they connect, are blurring the solid logo. Also good luck to anyone trying to make this original logo in embroidery.
Tennessee Blue Raiders
Again, just a little cleanup on this one. Removing the black shading from the insides of the logo ties it together a bit more, and there were some T corners that were a little further away from the rest of the logo. But not anymore.
Do you know more logos that need fixing that I haven’t covered yet? Let me know in the comments.
What is the “steadfast” mantra that represents the biggest improvement?
