From the KC Star:
Big, bad Mizzou, some say. It's only a small midwestern high school, so what's the big deal. Plus, Mizzou should be flattered.
I agree that it's very flattering for a high school to want to use Mizzou's logo. It wasn't all that long ago that Mizzou's flagship programs were nothing to be emulated. But with the football team's resurgence under the tutelage of HC Gary Pinkel (sleeping giant, anyone?) and the overall leadership of AD Mike Alden, everyone wants a piece of the action.
But Mizzou has every right to fight for its property rights. Having one small SD school use the logo isn't all that big of a deal, some say. But the slippery slope applies: you let one school use it, you must let others use it. It's best to nip it in the bud before it gets out of hand.
