*The “NC” is back in front of “STATE.” Seems curious, considering that having only “STATE” seemed so wildly popular among the fans.
SFN asked Debbie Yow about the change via email. Her response:
We will always use “State” in some form or fashion…. [It's] a lot of fun and nostalgic.
That said, we are a program on the rise and want the entire nation (
and internationally) to know who they are watching win big with no room for error.
So, both marks are alive and well.
*Finally added some black trim on the red helmets, which makes the logo seem much sharper.
*The pants now have piping (red on white, white on red, both with black trim).
*”1 Pack 1 Goal” printed on the inside-back collar.
*The Adidas logo looks to be the same font size as the “NC STATE” lettering. It’s an arms race for merchandising, too.
