Florida State Seminoles have made some noise in the last week with the changing of the uniform logo, much to the disappointment of their fans

The university has received quite a backlash from fans that have argued that the new design has destroyed the tradition of the great institution. 

Logo changes are common occurrences across most sports, but because of the geological constants associated with college sports, these decisions are heavily scrutinized. 

But the coach of the Seminoles, Jimbo Fisher, has claimed that the new logo is not that bad and that it shouldn't be classed as all that important. 

"Did I like the old one? Yes. Do I like the new one? Yes. It’s our logo and not drastically that much different," Fisher told ESPN.

Most people argue that a change of logo can be detrimental to a team's identity and it can harm the values that the team are associated with. 

However, Fisher denies these claims, as he adds that the logo doesn't define the team and their traditions. 

"To me, I haven’t been there that long, but I’ve been a Florida State fan, too, and I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. If the Seminole Tribe is fine with things and they like that, to me, that’s great. But it still doesn’t change our traditions, our values and what we are."
