Different teams, same logos

For years it's bothered me that the Universities of Michigan (blue) and Missouri (black) both use the same logo:

Back when I lived in California I also used to get annoyed whenever I'd see people wearing pastel blue and yellow Red Sox hats that actually signified UCLA.

Today it came to my attention that the Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Bears have practically identical emblems as well.  And while it's only half of their logo, strangely enough the Minnesota Twins also represent themselves with that same "C."

It was then pointed out to me that the Green Bay Packers and the University of Georgia share a circular capital "G" symbol, as does Grambling State University.

Similarly Michigan State, Stanford, and Syracuse all use a block letter "S."

This is what I've come up with after about twenty minutes of research.  I'm sure there are many more duplicate logos out there, if you know of any that I've missed leave a comment below.
