About

“The Appalachian State Mountaineers are the athletic teams that represent Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, United States. The Mountaineers compete in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and have been a member of the Southern Conference since 1972. Appalachian fields varsity teams in 20 sports, 10 for men and 10 for women. The football team competes in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), formerly I-AA, but will transition to Division I-FBS in 2014. Appalachian State will join the Sun Belt Conference in all sports except soccer and wrestling, which the Sun Belt does not sponsor. Those teams will remain as Southern Conference members in those sports.” (Source: Wikipedia)

Please note: The above image (of Yosef) is the alternate logo. The primary logo is below. And this only applies to the athletics of Appalachian State, not the university itself.

Relevant quote
"The excitement that Victory Yosef has generated among our students, alumni and fans since we introduced it as a throwback logo last fall has been overwhelming," Appalachian State director of athletics Charlie Cobb said. "Due to its popularity, it only made sense to make Victory Yosef a permanent part of our branding. We hope that it endures as a recognizable mark of Appalachian athletics for years to come."

Opinion

You can't argue with "vintage", even if Victory Yosef looks like an Amish Hipster. They'll probably sell more merch with it in a month than they did in the last 14 years with the very sporty "Yosef Head".

Thanks to Russell T. Pate for the tip.
