Imagining Beaver Stadium With A Midfield Logo
Oh, Beaver Stadium. Home sweet home. Our dear stadium can pack in over 107,000 screaming fans on a fall Saturday while hosting some of the best teams in college football seven times a year.
Few things are as iconic to Penn State as Beaver Stadium. It’s seen Joe Paterno secure win No. 409, 18 years of White Outs, and student bodies storming the field.
There’s just one thing that the football field is missing: a midfield logo.
Sure, a center field logo can be a dangerous invitation to opponents (see Ohio State against Oklahoma in 2017 and Ohio State against Michigan this year). All that said, there’s just something special about a good, clean logo that can perfect an already pretty great Beaver Stadium.
To solve this clear and obvious error by Penn State’s paint crew, our staff took it upon themselves to show what Beaver Stadium would look like with a variety of logos at the center of the field.
Penn State Logo
Clean cut, basic, and solid. There’s nothing wrong with a good, classic school logo at the center of the field. It looks good for the cameras, and in case you forget where you went to school halfway through the second quarter, this logo is a good reminder.
Blue Band Logo
The Blue Band is a huge part of what makes Penn State football Saturdays so special. It’s one of the best college bands we’ve heard, and it gets the student section moving at just the right times. It’s only fitting for it to be featured on the grass at Beaver Stadium. Even besides all that, it’s a very cool logo.
Retro Penn State Logos
If not the current logo, Penn State football could pay homage to the school’s roots with one of its retro logos. Frankly, it’s tough to tell that there’s a lion in the current logo. These leave nothing to the imagination. Paint the words “We Are” in the end zone, and we’ve made the perfect football field.
No, this Lion’s Paw isn’t the secret society. Instead, this logo is a little more fun at center field. The bubbly toes make Beaver Stadium seem like a more family-friendly environment. Besides, who doesn’t love a cute little cartoon?
This is the classiest of the options. This logo presents Penn State as a fine institution where your child can earn a well-rounded education while also attending football games. Sure, they may also be cursing out Michigan football players, but they’re getting a degree.
Onward State Logo
You know we had to do it.
Our dodgeball game against the Daily Collegian would look sick on this field, by the way.
