Oregon State painted its center logo and endzones in 2012, so that for 2013 we will likely have ‘OSU’ and it will be diagonal and look darn good with enhanced endzones. I believe either orange and black checkered endzones or what Tinker has described as a beaver tail waffle design may be best but I also feel black and white “victory” endzones to provide more stark contrast with a bright orange OSU central logo would also work well.
The black and white would have maximum contrast and then the orange OSU, as long as it is large enough, will pop extremely well and overall it would be very slick and full of motif. It would become instantly talked about and recognized as unique to OSU. It is such a powerful vibe that it would get OSU discussed nationally and the victory angle is exactly what scoring touchdowns is all about. Below is the concept.
Ignore the imperfections and just try imagining it. It would also be very good with orange and black for the checkers but try to just imagine it this way cause I believe it would be instantly memorable across the nation and portray a great winning image for OSU for our national telecasts. Noone else has victory endzones. You could put orange “Oregon State’ and ‘Beavers’ on top of the design if desired and it would still look great.
