The great UH logo
debate continues

We don't like it. Why? Too many jagged edges like shark's teeth. Did someone check with a feng shui expert?

As a UH graduate, I am somewhat disappointed to find out that the old logo changed, but when I really look at and compare the two, I like the new one better.

It's definitely bolder and more collegiate looking, not whimsical like the multi-colored rainbow logo.

So change isn't necessarily bad. I could get used to this one.

Kimberly Vierra

The new UH logo is difficult to identify, aesthetically annoying, vaguely Aztec-looking, anemic and totally static. Oh, yeah - it's ugly besides.

Loca Salmagundi

I agree that the new logo is ugly, unattractive and not even synonymous with good design qualities. Is the University of Hawaii telling us that most of the replies were against the former rainbow logo? If so, could we have those numbers published?

It's hard to believe that a small group of dissenters had this much power to institute such an expensive change.

William Burke

The new logo definitely reflects a cutting edge graphic sensibility. I think that it will take a season or two for most people to get used to it. But they will.

I live in California and follow U of H sports teams. As a former undergraduate, I always wished they would have changed the name from "Rainbows'' to anything else.

I think that this a major improvement on how the team will be viewed by competitors and the sports community around the nation. I guess there will always be people who will find it hard to accept change.

Think Denver Broncos. After they won the Super Bowl, those uniforms sure looked better.

Go B.... er Warriors!

Rooting for Marion Jones in Sydney

Dave Reardon's comments regarding Marion Jones (Monday Evening QB, July 17) are pretty much on par.

I'm only a year older than her but had the opportunity to watch her run as a senior at the Sunkist Invitational in L.A. when I was attending college on the mainland. It's great to watch her progress from UNC Tar Heel basketball to world class sprinter.

She's the real deal but she will have some competition from Miller in the sprints, and Burrell in the long, as well as Perec and Freeman in the 200.

Here's hoping she can stay healthy and get five golds.

Thanks for writing about mascot issue

I would like to commend Dave Reardon on his writing of the Monday Evening QB column (July 10) concerning the UH mascot situation. I, too, also feel that many Hawaiian leaders are trying to speak for the entire Hawaiian population.

The whole issue with the Warrior being Hawaii's mascot has been the only dark side to a wonderful season the team enjoyed. I hope that this season brings a new mascot and a few more considerate fans.
