Grambling logo to be less like Packers', Georgia's 'G'
GRAMBLING, La. -- After letting rights lapse to its familiar "G" on football helmets, Grambling State University is planning to introduce a new logo for the first time in decades -- much to the consternation of some fans.
Since the rights to the logo lapsed, outside vendors can produce and sell items with the logo, all without giving a dime to the school.
"Grambling paraphernalia sells all over the country. We're losing money hand over fist," said football coach Melvin Spears.
