Thanks for sharing. I didn't know the etymology of the logos, but no wonder I'm partial to 1974 to 2000 because it represents my younger years of growing up into early adulthood. I too disliked the 2001-2003 logo, but I wonder if it was also influenced by our struggle during it in addition to it just being bad?
maybe a little of both, but I think it's a lot of it just being a BAD logo. Most folks initial reaction when it was rolled out was that it was too cartoonish and just wasn't really a fit.

I think you're right. I have fleeting memories of the Stallings years, but the Dubose era was when I really started becoming a fan. It was rough, but I never wanted to cheer for anyone else.

I heard something interesting on a radio golf show this morning. A young lady was being interviewed who was from Finland and is a college student here in the states. She was asked if she was making any NIL money. No, she wasn't because she couldn't. She is here on a student visa which stipulates that you can't have an off campus job. NIL is considered just that. She could however sign an NIL deal with a Finnish company. Not knowing the immigration status of olaus, I'm not sure whether this applies to him. I believe his family still lives abroad. When I heard her explain the details I immediately thought of olaus and his situation.

I found out through Googling...not a very elite metaphor I might add. I get "medieval" -- studied too much history!!! I still don't know what the two fingers sideways sign BY gives in photos means...my own sons don't even know!!!
I don`t think I can even maneuver my fingers into some of these gestures that these kids seem to feel compelled to interject into their photos, much less know what they might signify.
