And that looks SO terrible on the scoreboards and other publicity on TV

SO BAD




Every other schools marks look so clean and cool, but then we have this stupid cartoon Tiger and it looks awful

and if you watch an LSU football game it is the eye at midfield and the old logo on the helmet...toonces is nowhere to be seen but is all over the media. It must be so confusing for non-LSU fans around the country and thats what I hate the most

LSUs "image" has no consistency at all

here's a pic from last season. they had toonces on the shorts then too.

Proves how little I watched the team last season. In fact, I'm not sure a single one of my season tickets got used last season.
Nice to know Toonces has been there with the bball team for a while now. Seems like a perfect match.

I hate the fact that my LSU ring has the toonces head on it. Had i graduated on time i would have gotten the Helmet Logo...wish i would have known that might have been enough motivation to get it done with

no wonder we are having trouble recruiting for basketball. No one wants to play for a program with that shite on the shorts.




I don't think that's the reason....

I seriously never have gotten all the hate for that logo.....most of my stuff is so old it has the old logo with Mike III s head , but I have some of the newer logo stuff too.

young black men who play basketball don't want some lame toonces logo. they want something that's got swag like the logo on the football helmets. i think everyone would want something that shows tradition not just some made up logo like boise st. has

Not sure what the hell they were thinking.... we need to start some sort of online petetion to get rid of that mess. I agree, go back to the old mike logo, still the best buy far.

Well the sales skyrocketed after '03. Which is what their argument is based from.

Bc the idiots released it around 2003... Our most successful season since '58.

They can't put 2 &. 2 together?


You would be surprised. Its mindboggling the decision making and thought process that goes on with LSU at times.

Agreed. I know that Nike and some of these other companies realize this because Sailor Mike and Helmet Mike are everywhere now. I'm glad because I have options I actually like.

LSU public relations and media personel think it was the one best logo designs ever because it has genertated the most money over any previous logo.
Thats because it was the logo during two national championship wins and a huge amount of success. People aren't buying LSU gear for the damn toonces, they buy it b/c LSU is relevant again, not just in football.
