    I think that tilted and elongated star looks stupid.

    Oh well.

    Not much to do about it, but looks like something a high schooler could've made on Photoshop

    Let's be realistic, short of the new logo being a picture Adriana Lima naked (and I'm sure some of you honks would still complain about that), it was always going to be underwhelming.

    This would maybe be more fitting.

    I don't get the elongated star part at all, but I'm fine with the rest of it.

    I expected to hate it, but it turns out that I just don't care - not about the name, the logo, the commissioner or any of the s--- weasel schools that we're buddied up with in this fetid wreck of a conference.

    Aresco's cartoon head on a pike was probably not considered for a logo. I could've gotten behind that.

    A poor man's Jessica Alba, but I'd call her within 24 hrs of the first date. She's good arm candy for a Saturday afternoon matinee.

    In the wordmark, are they using the star to dot a capital I?

    The wordmark is better than the logo, but the C is just....strange.

    It's where your monkey avatar can look over - squeeze him into the bottom half...

    Here's a better cropping of the vertical wood mark:

    Google search results for "AAC", in order:

    Advanced Audio Coding
    ADVANCED ARMAMENT CORPORATION
    Augmentative and Alternative Communication
    AAC | Enterprise IT that propels federal agencies forward
    American Alpine Club
    Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy
    Welcome to the AAC Institute! We are a not-for-profit, charitable organization dedicated to the most effective communication for people who rely on augmentative ...
    The AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts is the oldest and largest AIDS service organization in New England.
    Appalachian Athletic Conference
    Affiliated Acceptance Corporation

    Then, finally, something about the Louisville Cardinals men's basketball team being the AAC favorites.

    We have a long way to go. I think the star is elongated to inspire a "reaching for the stars" psyche. We are the next step up from C-USA. I think. If the AAC wins multiple national championships in basketball and football, that would be impressive.

    I'm not too into this logo. Hopefully after a year we won't have to even see it again.

    Kinda like another logo, that was forced upon us, but I won't mention any names :confused:

    Polls show 70-75% approving of the AAC logo. That is impressive.
