Well, they’re at it again.
This picture surfaced on Twitter yesterday of State’s new midfield logo for the Carolina game this weekend. As you can see it is a direct rip off of the emblem ECU has used for years.
It immediately caused some debate over whether it was photoshopped. However, shortly thereafter it was confirmed by multiple people as being true. The N&O is even piling on acknowledging State’s continuous marketing rip-offs.
It’s certainly [NC State’s] standard practice to borrow promotional concepts from schools elsewhere – such as Mississippi State’s “Our State” campaign or the LSU football intro video, which is how PNC Arena ended up “rising defiantly from the Triangle.”
