Additionally, AppState removes the "ASU" abbreviation and replaces it with Simply "APP"
Well that probably has to do with being in the same conference as Arkansas State, and they were ASU in the Sun Belt well before we got here.
stAte and every other ASU in the country - arizona st, angelo st, alabama st, albany st, alcorn st, etc.
There is just 1 APP.
It use to irk me when I would pull up live stats from goasu and see the angelo st or alabama st logo's instead of ours or see ASU on bottomline and those not in the know realizing that ASU is us. Just a week ago, I went to the stAte live stats during our game and it had APP right with the correct logo, but showed us playing Arizona st - and this was on stAte's site.
For whatever reason the change was made, I am glad we have differentiated ourselves. Just wish we had of trademarked APP 15 or 20 years ago before the rise of smartphones!
