Post Baseball Logo
Does anyone know why the baseball logo changed from the T-Star-S to a T-Bobcat-S? I noticed the T-Star-S is no longer on the class ring either and has been replaced with the bobcat.

I think the old logo was linked to some prison gang activity.

Death Row don't do Bobcats...............LOL

From what I've heard, we ended up with the TS bobcat because:

The TS with the star was too close to Texas A&M's alternate logo:

And the TS logo without the star was too close to the prison gang Texas Syndicate:

It seems those Texas Syndicate guys are clearly Texas t-shirt(less) fans anyways:

I get that it was too close to the Texas Syndicate gang logo (which was the reason the star was included. When we were Southwest Texas, the baseball logo was just a T and an inner locking S) and the new T-star-S logo ended up looking like A&M's alternate logo. However, we had that T-star-S logo for 13 years. Why change it now? Something must have happened.

I can't remember if it was last year or the year before that, but the school sent emails to students to vote on a new logo design on class rings. The TS + star was being removed due to copyright infringement. We had 4 designs and it looked like the TS Bobcat won. I voted for the TS Bobcat. I'll try to find the email, but the email system Texas State uses is ass..

I heard A&M came after us for copyright infringement. See tx.state's post above and see the similarities in their T-star logo and what we were previously using.

Couldn't find the e-mail but here's an article from the school newspaper: https://star.txstate.edu/2016/03/10/new ... finalized/


"In an attempt to avoid legal issues with Texas A&M University due to similarity, Texas State officials have decided to change the logo on the right side of the class ring. However, the design has not been finalized...

...“The student surveys and on-site votes were pretty telling,” said Gene Bourgeois, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “I think students who have voted really supported the SuperCat logo design.”...

....Blaschke said San Marcos officials adopted new logos when the university became Texas State. One of the adopted logos was the intertwined “T” and “S” star with “State” underneath, similar to a logo Texas A&M had registered shortly before..."
