FIU has a new logo....THUNDERCATS!

FIU is getting a new logo…you can see the FIU in the script.  On the one hand it may look cool in color, on a helmet, on the other it is hilariously 80's.

This is from the FIU message board, and since they are laughing at it, I figure we can too.



Compare to…

They are also making their blue color darker and "shinier" (?) and dropping golden from golden panthers.  The FIU Panthers.

Sounds like what UCF did so that they could distance themselves from the horrible Golden Knights c. 2004.
"No no you got it wrong, those were the GOLDEN knights, we are just the knights".

Ha I also just read something about how they (the athletic department mostly) had wanted to rebrand the WHOLE university to set themselves apart from the 3 letter schools. FAU, USF, UCF, FSU..

A couple of the suggestions:

Miami State University (Not that bad..except for the other two Miami schools)

State University of Florida at Miami (SUFM?, [email protected]?)

…….
Which begs the question, what would we rename FAU (if we had to)

Boca State University

Florida Atlantic State University

Atlantic State University

State University of Florida at Boca Raton

The University of Florida Atlantic

Miami State University… MSU… yeah, that gets them away from all the three letter names, wouldn't it? Plus, that could cause confusion when you see it on the ESPN ticker…

On the other hand, I do think "Miami State" is a better name than "Florida International." I wonder if FIU ever considered embracing it's Latino students and surroundings and try to become the top university for Spanish-speaking students in America. It would be a nice niche for them.

Wow, those are all really, really bad. I know when they first founded the school, names they had considered where Boca University (which isn't necessarily bad), Sunshine State University (omg, so bad, but not as bad as…) and A-OK University (sooo glad that got shot down).

Also, you may know that at various points in the history of Florida, universities came into financial troubles and it was suggested that they become branch campuses of the University of Florida. At one point, FAU was about to become the University of Florida at Boca Raton.

I think two other schools were in a similar circumstance but obviously had fended off the change.
