Totally awesome because I am an alumnus.
I must admit that I am not really that excited about the green helmet with “North Texas” on the sides. I maintain that it looks like a placeholder for the logo.
nTm imagines it this way:
Designer 1: Once we get the new logo files in, they’ll go here. Gonna be awesome with the diving eagle and all that.
Designer 2: Totally. I’ll add them later. Right now I am gonna crash.
Later as the deadline for production looms …
Designer 2: Lemme just email the final helmet design in. OH CRAP! I forgot to put the diving eagle. . . uh. Eff it. No one will notice.
That is how we got that design. Because I don’t want to think about the meetings where it was decided that spelling it out would be better than having a bad ass logo on TV.
That said, I cannot wait for the first game against Houston.
