Disco Fever

At Pitt, they have begun the annual grumbling for a return to the script Pitt logo also known as Fan Fest. Pitt AD Steve Pederson has already shot down the idea of retro uniforms.

"I felt there had been enough changes,"

"I understand people like some things from years ago, but we're trying to recruit 15-, 16-, 17-, 18-year-olds, and we've built a pretty good brand with our success with what we're doing, so I don't think now is the time to change much."

I'm not the fashion police, but I can never understand why Pitt fans can't embrace the block letter logo.

The block logo is historical, it's recognizable and it actually looks like it represents a top university.


I love Pitt's football history, it's one of my favorite subjects. I just can't understand the fascination with a logo that looks like a bad 70's disco flyer.
