Ohio State Logo Morphing Into Buckstache

Buckeye fans were frothing at the mouth (more so than usual) after the school announced it was "updating" its seal and logo.   First, the seal. On top is the old one, below it is the new:

You find the change?  Look again.  It's like one of those "What's different in these pictures?" games in that kids' magazine from the dentist office, right?  Give up?  Okay, in the bottom one, the "O" in the center is beveled (although our friends at The BBC claim the Latin reads, "Fuck Michigan").

But Buckeye fans weren't too upset about the change to the seal as its just used on official documents and diplomas, neither of which most Ohio State fans have ever seen before.  However, they were more than a little peeved about the "big" change to the school's athletic logo.

And probably tens of thousands of dollars later to some OSU design grad, here's the new:

No, seriously, that's the new one.  As even Buckeye fans are saying, apparently all that design money bought was a Sharpie to give Gene Smith in order to color the top one in.
