B1G logos added at Ohio Stadium

Ohio Stadium


Whether you like it or not, get used to the Big Ten’s “B1G” logo. This fall, every football team will wear the logo on its jerseys (here’s a look at Illinois’ patch) and it also will appear on the teams’ fields. @AdamWidman, assistant director of athletics communications at Ohio State, tweeted a picture of the freshly added logos at Ohio Stadium. They sit at the 25-yard line on each side of the field.

I may be in the minority, but I’ve become a fan of this logo. I wasn’t crazy about it when it was first released, along with the Big Ten’s other new logos, however it’s grown on me. As a result, I have no problem with this movement. How about you, Big Ten fans?

Big Ten logos have never been on the Ohio Stadium field, therefore I hate them.

I hate them even more because the logo on the East side of the field is facing the press box, obviously for TV.

And hate them even more because the logos aren’t even school colors. But history means nothing to the Big Ten’s corporate image (in the midst of scandals).

Osu used to have big 10 spelled out on the 50 yard line.

Now I know what conference Ohio State plays in.

Prior to putting B1G logos on the field, I know many people had no clue.

Not a fan at all. Terrible!

I’m used to the logo and don’t mind it being on the field…Just wish they made it Scarlet and Gray. Go Bucks!

it has definitely grown on me as well, but I do wish they were school colors for each field like in the SEC

    Agree. At least that’s the case on the jerseys.

OSU student here – While the picture makes it look like the B is black, it is actually green. Since they put down new turf for the logos (they didn’t just paint it), it hasn’t had time to get some sun like the rest of the turf.
