Aggies Alternate Logo
As a sports fan, you may be familiar with the New Mexico State Aggies logo. It has been around for many years and is associated with NCAA athletics. The New Mexico State Aggies have had several logos throughout history, each representing something unique about the team and its identity. In this blog post, we’ll look at some of these logos and how they came to represent the team today.
The original logo used by the New Mexico State Aggies was designed in 1930 by athletic director Zebulon Judd Miller Jr., who wanted it to embody “the spirit of rugged individualism that was so much part of early American life on our western frontier." This first version featured an outline of a cowboy riding his horse while wearing an NMSU hat and holding two pistols in either hand – all set against a red background featuring white stars along its outer edges.
As time went on, though, changes were made to make it more modernized over time such as adding blue accents or replacing some elements entirely, like when they replaced their cowboy rider with just an aggressive-looking bulldog mascot during the 1940s era, which eventually became known simply as ‘Bully’ (and still stands today). During the 1970s era, there were also various versions created, including one where Bully held up three fingers instead two guns; however, none lasted long enough for them to become iconic symbols like previous iterations before finally settling into the current design seen most often now: A black silhouette image depicting both Bully & Pistol Pete together standing side-by-side ready for action!
Throughout decades' worth of changes & updates made since then, the only thing that remains the same is the core values behind what makes these symbols stand out: Strength through unity no matter the circumstances ahead! Whether facing down opponents' field or taking academic challenges head on every day - having this emblem can help remind us why we fight hard and work towards achieving success no matter what odds might be stacked against us... Go Ags!!
