Michigan State stays no to logo change

East Lansing, MI – Michigan State Athletic Director Mark
Hollis says the school plans to keep its current Spartan logo
design.
A redesign of the Spartan helmet emblem used on Michigan State
uniforms had been contemplated as part of an overall branding
update the university plans to roll out in April. But the revised
logo sparked an Internet protest among the university's fans who
liked the current version better.
Hollis said Friday that after careful consideration the
university will use the same logo that was first used in the late
1970s and is now featured on Michigan State football helmets and
other items.
Michigan State has been working with Nike on the branding,
including uniforms and apparel.
