I actually created this particular poll before the other logo poll I just posted (the one just for college/FBS logos). I simply asked people to pick their favorite logo in each of the Big 4 leagues + MLS and NCAA. The problem I realized with the NCAA portion - and why I eventually embarked on a larger college-only poll - was that there were just too many options so any results I got weren't that representative. Nonetheless, I still got results for each sport. As noted, several leagues had a tie for 3rd place, but all of them had a clear first and second place.
I created this poll to determine who has the best logo in college football*. I use an asterisk because the format I used has it's disadvantages to go with its advantages. I didn't attempt to use a traditional bracket system that pits a 1-seed against a 16-seed (largely because I didn't want to presume from the get-go who was "worthy" of a 1-seed). Instead, my primary focused was pitting similar logos against each other in round 1. This is unfortunate because it means you're likely to have to pick between two logos that you like as well as two logos that you dislike. My second focus was to have each region of the bracket be a style or type of logo. So you have (A) single letters, (B) two interlocking letters or multiple letters, (C) a mix of text and images, and (D) no-text. Unfortunately, some of section C overflowed into section D. But the main purpose of this setup was so that the bracket would determine, early on, who has the best 'A' logo or 'U' logo or logo that has an animal above the school's acronym above the school's mascot, for example; and, later on, who has the best logo of two interlocking letters or best logo with no text.
So when you look at this and see Virginia, Washington State, Georgia Tech, and Michigan State in the Final Four, that doesn't necessarily mean that they're the 4 best logos in all of the FBS. But rather, just that they're the best to come out of those regions. Several undeniably great logos were eliminated early. Clemson, Arizona State, UAB, Rice, Cincinnati, UCLA, Virginia Tech, and North Carolina just to name a few. If we attempted to rank all logos #1-129, many of those I just listed would likely make it into the top quartile.
