  Did the Los Angeles Rams just rip off their new logo from Angelo State University? The Los Angeles Rams unveiled a new logo Monday. Fans have noticed it looks awfully similar to the logo of Angelo State University.The primary logo, which was initially leaked on Twitter two weeks ago, was widely criticized by NFL fans again on Monday. First of all, the logo could easily be confused with the Los Angeles Chargers. The colors are similar, and the horn design on the lettering could pass as a Chargers-related bolt. The Rams also scrapped the logo that their $5 billion stadium is going to be shaped like.

Gillispie was a rising star in the coaching profession after quick rebuilding jobs at UTEP and Texas A&M, which had a 14-win improvement to 21 wins in his first season and won 27 games in 2006-07 before Kentucky hired him. He was fired after only two seasons when the Wildcats missed the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 17 years, and he had a two-year hiatus from coaching before his troubled year at Texas Tech.

“I think because of being a victim of our success, turning around things so fast, I might have approached the last Division I jobs a little bit different because I just felt so much pressure,” he said. “I probably put too much pressure on myself, probably put too much pressure on our staff to perform and probably put too much pressure on the players because of the success that we had.”

After leaving Kentucky, he had another drunken driving arrest and spent time in a substance-abuse program. It was also during that span when his mother died and a nephew drowned.

The Red Raiders won only one Big 12 game in 2011-12 under Gillispie, who cited health concerns after being hospitalized twice in a month before resigning in September 2012. He stepped down amid allegations he mistreated players on his team, including exceeding limitations on practice time.

Before his resignation, the coach spent six days in a Lubbock hospital. A week later, Gillispie went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where he said then that he was treated for kidney problems, abnormal headaches and high blood pressure.

Being able to recruit great players, they've done all that for the last 32 years. We'll be able to continue that. We just have to it at the Division I level."
