Within the next two weeks the logo decision will be final for this year. Because of the 2013 expected rebranding this year’s logo will be painted on. That fact, and also since there is now less space with the Pac-12 logos on the 25 yard line, makes me give the slight edge to OS being at the middle of Reser this year. I could be wrong, and the Angrybeaver may make more sense for now if we go to a potential ‘OSU’ next year and it is felt to be less disruptive overall. What do you think? Has the Angrybeaver run its course and should it be slowly phased out for a better beaver logo next year? Some say we may return to something closer to classic Benny. I am not sure if that is best either, although with modifications it might be considerable.
I think a potential beaver logo, and Riley if he is still around, need to express more attitude and come across as more aggressive winners. I see OSU in the center of the field next year and a Beaver secondary logo on both 25 yard lines as an attractive option. I think the Reser logos are wasted marketing space and we don’t get enough money to justify not having OSU logos in their place. Save the Reser for the outside of the stadium, on the Jumbotron in intervals and for the ‘AL’ sign. Beyond that it doesn’t benefit us much and if anything limits our potential to get and remain at the upper tier of the Pac-12 where marketing is crucial. Make your pick below for what you want to see in 2012. It is a big decision and one most fans find intriguing as they look forward to better branding in the near future that will attract more top recruits.
