re: New Look Helmets - AndrewD
They never put 'toonces' on the uniform at all. They paid a firm in Manhattan $1 million for the design around 2001, but they didn't start off by screwing with the uniform. It was only used on t-shirts and promotional items. That was a much smarter business plan than to put a soft design on the foo...

Born in 1975 in Baton Rouge. third generation tiger. i said what i had to say and its not about me. it's the bone-headed decisions being made by the university. why don't other programs do that kind of stuff? because it pisses off alumni. ...

re: New Look Helmets - AndrewD
That's exactly why they did it and it's not going to work. Going to one BCS game in the last 6 years and barely playing in the NCAA tournament made it harder to sell merchandise. The logo isn't the problem. I don't come on here to bitch about the coach or the players or the fans. But when the admin...

re: New Look Helmets - AndrewD
Probably so. I wouldn't be surprised if they "clean up" the midfield logo too for tv. It's going to look like crap too but that's not the point. People who don't understand how it works won't care. It looks like a student worked up that logo in a few hours in adobe illustrator. It doesn't look tradi...

re: New Look Helmets - AndrewD
Well the helmet sticker has worked fine for the last 37 years. Changing it probably isn't the best idea. It won't win any games but it might sell a few tshirts....

re: New Look Helmets - AndrewD
I've done commercial art for CBS television. I'm not worried about what you consider to be a minor detail. The list of consistently good football teams with consistent logos is pretty solid. And if not, show me one terrible team that keeps the same uniform and logo every year. It's the bad teams tha...

re: New Look Helmets - AndrewD
Exactly. You don't get it. There is such a thing as quality control and it's been slipping. Not as bad as the pre-Saban era. Watch a video from back in the DiNardo/Hallman era and you'll see 15 different LSU logos on the field, coaches shirts, broadcast insignia fans shirts etc. To some people its ...

re: New Look Helmets - AndrewD
Thats why I said logos not helmets. LSU had tiger decals on the back of the helmets in the 80s, fleur-di-lis, american flags, all kinds of things. That's not the logo. The only reason you change the logo is to sell merchandise in the short run....

re: New Look Helmets - AndrewD
OK let's say in the last 44 years. 44 x 11 is 484. And Michigan, the first team to paint their helmets in 1938, has never changed their logo. That's over 500 years combined of winning teams not screwing with their helmet logos. ...

re: New Look Helmets - AndrewD
Not sure if that's true but it's a good story. A logo that looks like a real tiger is better than a logo that looks like a toy. Maybe it's an unpopular sentiment but anybody who reads this rant can name 10 great football programs that never change their helmet logo. Winning teams don't have to do t...

re: New Look Helmets - AndrewD
It doesnt look good. Nothing about the LSU uniform matches but that what makes it LSU. the purples dont match, the golds dont match. Subtle irregularity is part of the LSU brand. It's a french aesthetic that would take a long time to explain. The tiger eye is not a stencil, its slightly different ev...
