NCAA's new Frozen Four logo gets smacked down by Twitterverse
JUL 26, 2014 4:57p ET
NCAA hockey made a rare appearance in the summer news cycle Friday morning with the unveiling of the official logo for the 2015 Frozen Four, which will be held in Boston for the first time since 2004.
Though college hockey fans in New England are excited to have the sport's championship back in their backyard, some of the initial response to the new logo was ... unfavorable, to say the least.
Twitter users hated on the green-and-yellow "Subway" color scheme (TD Garden colors, perhaps?) and the blob-like depiction of Paul Revere, and most seemed to agree that the logo from the 1998 Frozen Four -- also held in Boston -- was much, much better.
Here's the graphic:
And a sampling of the negative feedback:
