It IS awful. And they probably paid someone for that atrocity. SMH
I wish we used that Gator head. Definitely the most sinister.
I'm pretty sure it was used in the 70's and maybe the 60's too.
They sort of did for a little while in some 80s merchandise, but it's really not a logo. It was a painting that somebody later converted to line art. Way too much detail to work as a logo.
So someone re-opened this thread from 6 months ago. I tried to click to agree with you and realize I already did in October. Best logo ever.
I was just thinking the other day how great it would look to bring back the interlocking UF for a throwback game... the easiest type of throwback helmet to do with the existing orange, just add a decal. Dickey or not, the '70's uniforms were among the best we have had and would take zero redesigning since we have the shoulder striped blue already for throwback games.
I wish a painful death to any iteration of white helmets at all.
I remember that one. We had it for several years. May have been back in the ‘80s.
An actual logo.
The current logo is my all-time favorite. Hope we keep it for a long time. And, it's not just because it's the one we have now; everything else before this one always looked like silly cartoons to me. This one looks like a real gatorhead that has connotations of aggression and invokes a feeling of fear. If we were playing a rock-paper-scissors game with logos, Gators would always eat seminoles and Georgia puppy dogs.
Hey easy .... I live in Daytona beach
I did saunder into a Tee shirt shop yesterday .
I remember this with a saying at the bottom” A Florida man needs no introduction “
It looks like Darth Vader riding something
LOL. It really is a detailed "angry Albert" Hell, even the teeth are sharp
I hate the current gator head logo
Not a fan of the Gator head. I like the 70s UF circular one or Albert.
What's the big dislike here @awells05 ?
I’ve never liked the Gator on a platter logo. I think the green is just too predominant. I could tolerate a lot more if it was just one or maybe two colors.
I hate the slanted “Speed F” even more. Just a terrible, clunky-looking font to be used as a single letter. It’s intent was to be used in a whole word phrase as in FLORIDA or GATORS (first used on our basketball uni’s?) where it’s not so bad. Wish they would only use it in that instance.
My wife picked up a box at a garage sale from an old Bull Gator.
before Big Brands sued everyone, there was a lot less standardization of Albert
GET OUTTA MY HEAD!
Mr. Hicks has some thoughts...
I have this - the 'Old School Albert' - tattoo'ed on my left arm
