I like it. This is a secondary logo and should cut down on the TSU

Looks good. Now we need to move on from the :cat: logo.

Why the hell would you move on from a logo that actually represents your athletics programs?
This is not a replacement anyway, it's an addition to get the branding out there. There are actually 3 variations of this one.

1. TXST only
2. TXST stacked over State
3. TXST stacked over Bobcats

Move on is a poor choice of words, improve would be better. It's old and tired. Similar to the name change to shake the Party School label.

We should be using the :cat: for the next 100 years.

It's simple, it's recognizable, it will only grow in recognition.

I don't love the new TXST logo but I agree that we definitely needed one.

The Supercat logo is fantastic. It is only 14 years old. It is unique for all the "cat" logos out there.

I'm slightly more negative about the logos than Saul is, but I've never been a big fan of the font we've used. Still don't HATE it, but not in the love it either.

But regardless, it's wise to get those secondary logos out to impress upon folks that we are not TSU, we are TXST, so for that... I say kudos.

If I had to complain I would say I am not a fan of the beveled look. It looks dated really fast.

It's a simple supplementary image designed to improve brand recognition. Smart idea. Great idea actually.

However, I think this wouldn't really be news anywhere else... The athletic department has been criticized for a while for dropping the ball in its marketing approach. Honestly, I think this announcement might just be a demonstration of effort.

i despise the wacker typeface. it's so...opposite of what we should be doing, graphically.
*the x and s are the weak links of this design, specifically because of the wacker elements.

Agree this secondary logo was needed. The basic design is okay, but I agree that the bevel is going to look really dated really quickly.

The supercat logo, on the other hand, is an excellent timeless design. It'll serve us well for many decades and is easily recognizable.

I've had shits that look better than that damn Wacker typeface. It makes me think of that awful loopy handwriting that my teenage niece uses. I feel like if there was a lowercase "i" in our logo, it would have a heart for the dot.

Our fanbase has a habit of being unhappy with everything (especially the "Always be SWT to me" crowd). Just imagine how many heads would explode if they reworked the SWT logo to to say TXST instead

I always loved the "SWT" font. I think honestly it would look pretty sweet if it said TXST instead, and they used that... But I don't know if it would be more of a "we are just redoing what we already had, not inventing new."

Hell, maybe I'll just never be happy.
