A high school in Iowa is being forced to revamp its logo after the Oregon Ducks claimed the branding was too close to the one used by the Eugene university.
Okoboji High School is undergoing a five-year plan to phase out the use of its school logo. The new and old logo can been seen above and is very similar to the "O" design used by the Ducks.
The university first contacted the school district in December 2012 after noticing that the maroon "O" looked too much like its own logo. At first, Oregon requested that Okoboji change its Pioneer logo within one year. However, the high school responded by saying it was impractical to do so in such little time. The two sides agreed to a five-year phase out of the logo, instead.
"A fifth of our uniforms are changed every year, so it's going to take five years to run that cycle," Superintendent Gary Janssen said. "It goes back to time and money. We'll get to it when we can, but we're not going to spend all of our time and resources on changing everything immediately."
