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.


  1. I hate Ohio State, go Iowa

  2. Well I wish the Seattle NHL team had used the totems name and logo that had been used previously by a pro hockey team in Seattle that no longer exists and is currently used by a junior team. I think they were going to because an owner let it slip during a press conference a couple years ago. However, this was when there was a big debate about using native American reference s in team logos/names. So I think they had to change it to the Kracken. Ughh. The totems logo is the best team logo of all time in my opinion.
