U of Tex bullies tiny AZ high school

Recommended Posts

”Principal Jeff Simon said the school received a cease and desist letter this summer from the University of Texas. Payson must stop using the silhouette longhorn because it infringes upon a copyright held by Texas.

The Longhorn logo has been the pride of Payson High School and its sports teams for decades.”

There has to be a better solution.

Athens Texas - got the same letter from university of Alabama for using the “A”

You know what would be great? If a High School sued the crap out of a big time university or NFL team for using their logo.

🤣

College football merch sales is big business.

You'd think they could settle somewhere in the middle. Perhaps a 3% royalty on all of the high school's merch sales or something like that. The University of Texas would probably laugh at how little the logo actually brings in for the high school.

Nothing more than a power move honestly.

Founded in 1648 The Cambridge Rindge and Latin School (Massachusetts) uses this Falcon as their logo. 

Another pop quiz - who uses this logo?

That might work if one was over 100 years old and actually invented a logo.   They should cease and desist.  Is there a Lomghorn anywhere in AZ?  I suggest they call themselves the fighting Saguros.  No one wants Cacti as a mascot. 😆

Western Illinois University are called The Leathernecks and used to have a mascot that looked like our Bulldog.  Ours would be the Marine Corps where you earn the title Leatherneck.  They did change it to a yellow Bulldog but are still called the Leathernecks
