I will not buy anything with Toonces on it as well. I hate that logo!

I loved that Bed, Bath and Beyond had glasses with the old logo recently.

Believe it or not, it could have been worse than Toonces:

I like how the only design option is the animal over the school name. Very creative

The problem with that logo, imo, is that they didn't give Mike enough neck or something. It should look more like:

Also, look how some of the schools use just their lettering. LSU's media mark would be much more badass if it was just LSU in geaux font.

My opinion about Toonces is plain and simple. I will not purchase any article that has a Toonces design on it, period. It looks cartoonish and if someone gives me a piece of clothing with Toonces on it I simply give it away. As for the revenue issue, their revenues would increase if they changed the logo.

My vote is for the Tiger Eye...like the one used at mid field. When I spot any item with that on it I consider buying it, whether I need it, want it or not.

I have made threads on this very subject arguing that LSU has never been more dominant since Toonces was introduced. LSU is Toonces and Toonces is LSU.

It would be a shame to ever replace the Toonce...

I don't like Toonces. And it sucks for me. I obviously have an odd shaped head that no baseball hat will fit properly. The only LSU hat I have found that looks good on me, and doesn't make me look like a 3 year old who stole his dad's hat, has the Toonces head on it. I have debated sewing the Mike head over it.

I have searched and searched for a properly fitting non-Toonces hat, but to no avail. I guess I must suffer.

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.


The massive increase in sales had nothing to do with the success of the program.

PR people are ALWAYS full of shite.

and "Nike hates it?" Inside info? Link please?


I mean I am just assuming since they make hardly anything with it on it. Nike loves the eye and the geaux font LSU as it is on pretty much everything they make, espcially sideline gear for coaches of all sports

they sure are creative

I bet junior high schools are lining up for some of their best stock work to paste on the gym for P.E. time

Well someone was smart enough to not put this crap on the football helmets. Now if we can just get the Tiger on the helmut back in production we will all be happy.

are we the only school up there that has a logo that is not on the football helmet as our official media mark?

the only other one up there is Alabama but thats just because they dont any logo on their helment, but they still have the script "A" and is recognizable

I agree with whoever said to just use the Geaux font LSU and take off the toonces head

The reason they use it, over the other ones, is cause they needed something copyrighted. None of the other logos are copyrighted so they have a hard time making money off them. That's the reasoning behind toonces.


They could easily update the helmet tiger and get it copyrighted..at least keep the logo in the sprit of the helmet tiger

and if not, the Tiger Eye and geaux font are copyrighted use that officially and get Toonces out!

Toonces only looks good on kids clothes
