    OK... I'll humor you.

    :D best yet, the bull does nothing for me due to the Fact Mankato wears it. I know history and all… but it’s time to move on. Fresh!

    OK. Now go deal with Duluth and Ferris and their logos.

    I like the bull on a jersey — and think it should return. I really like how it looks with the designs that have a contrasting color on the shoulders. 

    I have to say, the unique stripe patter on the most recent concept looks really good with the "O" logo. It definitely looks like a unified design, and I think fans would love it.

    Ferris and Duloot can have their own debate, I like the ‘O’. I absolutely respect you opinion but that doesn’t mean I have to change mine. And the announcers can revert back to U!N!O! Mavericks! hike we’re at it!

    I am really interested in feedback on the 'O Swatch' sweaters. Did anyone else pick up on some of the oddities?

    Also open to suggestions on these, or other sweaters.


    As for 'Pointy Bull' versus 'Swirly O'. I prefer the bull for traditional reasons, and (the one time I agreed with Mark Payne) that the 'O' just doesn't translate well as a primary sweater logo. Hence, seeing if we can use it as a swatch.

    I feel like the solution for Omaha hockey may be a combination of concepts -- which isn't great for branding, but maybe can be beneficial:

    Home - the O Swatch with Pointy Bull

    Road - the Ranger concept with 'Omaha' on the chest.

    Alternate - I really like the Silver from the 'Omaha Knights' collection, and I think we can put an O on it and be true to the original concept.

    Oh, yeah... I can do things.

    Literally 'Spitfires.' (But not sold on 'Pointy Bull' on the shoulders -- but maybe it's just the cross section.)

    I agree on the fact that the "O" is more difficult to craft a compelling concept. Part of the issue is that it is "angle" (like an italicized O), and depending on how big the embroidered element is, it could look awkward. 

    The other challenging thing with the "O" is that it really needs a background on it too look right (just the black and red swirls don't work in every format). 

    I'd be curious to see what a "grey bull" looks like on all grey and black concepts (I don't want to make you do to many designs). 

    Hopefully, in the next couple of weeks I'll have some time to put a couple together.

    Sam Spomer asked for one, so... I altered the 'Omaha Knights' grey concept into a near-monotone.

    Here are a few arrays to compare with. Most are red bull to white bull. A couple have Os.
