No, thank you. The return, or near-return, to the REAL Yosef makes me very happy. I'm sorry that anyone would be so defensive as to think that our mountaineer is in any way a "hillbilly," when in truth he was designed to represent all of us, the pioneering, independent, courageous, and ultimately successful spirit of "yourself."

Gents..The Block A is our brand and most recognizable logo. If you saw the NFLPA game half the helmets on the National team had the block A on them. the old throwback logo is fine as a secondary and I want to keep it that way.........

Can we agree that Appalachian State should be spelled out on the jerseys and fields instead of App State


That's what I do. I gripe and I know things.

I must have missed where somebody wanted to replace the block A. The title of the thread is "Modernized Yosef Logo Question.

I can read thank you. My comment was directed to the fuss/discussion about a secondary logo..quite frankly one that I could give a flip about either way. I'll wait next time to comment in the appropriate thread.

I would love to see the white Block A as our primary logo, with the current Yosef being our secondary, and then have one or two other logos in the lineup that can be used throughout the year.

You have to admit, having ESPN's logo on a helmet would look pretty dang sweet:

This!
Love it. Just give him an eye and I'm totally on board with making it an alternate. I only say that because to a layman it might be tough to discern as being a face.

I don't think so. We've committed to the "App State" brand at this point (official athletic website et al). The front of the jersey should remain in my opinion. It's a branding thing.

In the 2017 season I'd love to see us do a throwback to the 2007 uniforms for one game to commemorate the Michigan win and our 3rd championship.

Sorry I came across like I did but you did make it seem like those of us posting in this tread didn't realize the importance of the Block A. Sorry :)

I actually think a good option for replacing the current end zone design would be to have a black background (of course) with block "APPSTATE" - APP in yellow, STATE in white. As much as people complain about not having black end zones, to me it's the current font and stacked words that look worse. But "Appalachian State" is too long to put in block letters in the end zone.

Could go "Appalachian" in one end zone and "Mountaineers" in the other, but I don't think we should just go back to the exact same look we had previously, as I think that's a little dated now.

As Gonzo mentioned, that ship has sailed. The primary mark was decreed to be App State by the athletic department approx. two years ago when the web site was changed from GoASU to AppStateSports. It was part of the run-up to admission to the Sun Belt. Arkansas State already had dibs on ASU; so it was deemed and decreed that we shall forever be App State. I think Appalachian State can still be used if it fits on the uni to the approval of the AD or his rep.


If it happens to the Apps, it happens to me!

I must be missing something here - are we talking about football jerseys? Those still say Appalachian State on the front, do they not? (Though I had to look it up, as the team name on football jerseys isn't very memorable to me in most cases.)

Yes, some do! Not certain about all.

FB and men's Basketball jerseys say Appalachian State. Women's BB jerseys go with App State.

It actually does say "Appalachian State" on the front of the jerseys in tiny little font and in the end zones as well.

Laney tried to brand "Appalachian Mountaineers" and it didn't catch on.

It's funny that the best version of modernizing Corn Cob Pipe Yosef came from an ESPN CFB Playoff promo picture.

And FYI, I don't want CCP Yosef to replace the Block A as the primary logo.

They probably went with App State so it would cut down on the amount of "Appalaychun" mispronounciations which gets on all of our nerves. Lol.

Additionally, AppState removes the "ASU" abbreviation and replaces it with Simply "APP"
