I have always liked the block S, but understand the branding issue it creates outside of the NE. I was asked by someone in Florida last year during SU's run in the tourney what the S on my hat meant. I would not be rushing to buy any new gear if we go to the banner.I know I'm in the minority, but I prefer our current set over the older jerseys. I'd be happy if they simply fixed the fonts on the current jerseys (and got rid of the awful platinum jersey that they rarely wear as is).
The lacrosse team seems to have something cooking that greatly interests me though.
The retro S on the lacrosse helmets is intriguing. I do not love it . . . yet. It seems so '80s and I want to place something in the square. But, maybe, just maybe, it would be okay. It is different and would be recognizable.
I remember when Wisconsin went from the Block W to the Motion W. A lot of people were not fans of the change. Then, Wisconsin started having success in football and basketball using the Motion W. Now high schools in Wisconsin are using variants of the logo, i.e. think Motion K or other letter.
So, if SU goes back to the (I am not even sure what to call it) retro S and continues to have success in football, wins the ACC, makes it to a couple of Final Fours, I am sure I will grow to love the retro S.
