Oregon State unveils new look

In lieu of having no Husky basketball news today, thought I’d pass along this story that I missed last week on Oregon State announcing that its athletic logo will no longer include the U at the end.
Instead, OSU will now be known simply as OS on its athletic jerseys.
One reason, apparently, is to differentiate the school from Ohio State and Oklahoma State, which also go by OSU, though I wonder just how many people have really been confusing the athletic programs of Ohio State and Oregon State through the years.
And I can already hear the taunts of opposing fans (especially those of the basketball variety) that you can’t spell loss without OS.
Here’s a Corvallis Gazette-Times columnist who thinks the attempt to create a new identity is “hogwash” with some accompanying fan comments revealing that Beaver Nation may be a little split on the whole deal.
