What was Gene Smith's budget, or bonus, to have that logo designed?

Alum of UD, Wright State, and OSU.  Hate it.  Where is the blue?  The V shaped thing a wing?  I think they are trying to combine the modern delta wing - V shape - with the biplane wing of the Wright Brothers - the white horizontal lines?  Modern, yet with tradition!

I had to look up the old logocause I couldn't remember what it looked like. And yeah, I think they could have been a little more creative.

Agreed 100% Juice - the more I think about it - it looks like the marketing department put it together in about 20 minutes without a lot of thought.

looks a little like the previous Penguins logo with the 'wings', not sure about the odd shaped lettering of the 'D'

Why couldn't they do the exact same thing, but put a U in there too?  Now they need penicillin.

A lot of the students and alumni hate it, it's hilarious. Loved my time at UD; a wonderful four and a half years, but man I have just never liked the basketball program and now that they've got VD it's hilarious.

Here is their full get up.

I liked the older Dayton Flyers with the lines.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

They should have used that old logo on the bottom, and just add a wing or wings to it.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

Why does the D have a nose?

Too much corporate. Not enough collegiate.

Looks like they took a flier from the Philadelphia Flyers logo.

On second look, I kinda like it now.  To TheShookster, how could you have gone to UD and not liked the basketball program?

That's UD's signature sport.

Been here for five years now since moving from Columbus and still have no damn idea where the campus boundaries are. It does not look as though it is a very big campus or even close to it and the strip really has nothing on it and only about 3 blocks long.

But i do like it here in Dayton nice and quite at least where im at it is and lots of places to drop a line in the water and just relax.
