Uni-obsessed! Breaking down the new Mountain West logo! Rant/Rave Unofficial OT.

Taking a little break in between finals and the next uni-breakdown, it's time time to take down the new Mountain West logo (assuming that it will be on our fields and our unis).  Join me after the jump as we go from good:

An initial reaction, from the fans and critics:

"N64 wants their logo idea back Mountain West Conference." - Kevin McBride

Our lovely Jeremy Mauss compared it to a Qbert board.

Many people thinking of the Dr. Who logo

pack_fan and Acash1983 on OBNUG thing that it looked like some sleazy corporate logo like...Enron?

The list goes on...

What do I think of it? This sums it up:

Yes, it's a very 80's look.  But not a good kind of 80's...more like the Jefferson Starship:

"WE BUILT THIS CITY, WE BUILT THIS CITY ON ROCK AND ROLL!"

 

Let's break it down a little further though...the scripting of the MW isn't all bad.  If they hadn't made it cubed and i dunno, made a new mountain design, the scripting would have been good.  The "Mountain West" is plain but it's classy at the same time.  I really like the color scheme and the fact that they didn't change that too much if at all.

 

But seriously? 250K for a mediocre logo at best? I guess it could be worse...we could be the B1G.

 

Let your anger/rant/witty comments flow through you in this thread!
