ACC unveils new conference logo after Maryland departure

There's no better way to get past an ugly breakup than to reinvent yourself, right? Cut your hair really short. Get big ol' tattoo. Or if you're a major college athletics conference, slant your logo sideways.

With Maryland officially moving to the Big Ten in July, the ACC unveiled a new logo Thursday. It looks a lot like the old logo, except now it kicked back the recliner a little bit in a "ain't worried 'bout nothing" kind of way.

According to a release from the conference, the logo "looks toward the future" while it still "pays homage to [a] proud past."

Lawsuits? No problem. We're here, we span the Atlantic Coast, and we probably got the logo from the same guy who made the C-USA logo:

I have seen the future and the future is at a 50-degree slant.

Just ask the Big East, the America East, the Big South, the Big West, the CAA, the MEAC, or the WAC.
