To say Auburn fans are upset would be an understatement:
Auburn fans: “we would like upgraded facilities”
University: “new logo”
Fans: “what? no, we want new facilities”
University: “ok we make new logo”
University: “we changed the logo”

Stupid. Did the same people who decided this hire Leath?

I guess I’m not buying any new gear, because that is absolutely terrible. Waste of money. So typical from our leadership to waste our money and ruin the logo. Just stupid

Hey @AuburnU, no one likes the redesign. It's called "traditional" for a reason. CHANGE IT BACK
