I got a note the other day from Uni Watch reader and UCF alum David Staples, as follows:
UCF officially made it to the big time on July 1, when they joined the Big 12. The school had a ton of countdowns and tie-ins to celebrate the big day. One of them was that if you donated at least $120 to their athletics program, you would get a limited-edition box of promotional items. I donated because I figured that the stuff would probably be pretty good, plus I live in South Carolina, so it isn’t easy to get UCF stuff up here.
The box included stickers, a magnet, sunglasses, a mini-banner, a larger banner, a collapsible water bottle, a magnetic pin, some pseudo tickets, and a very cool hat. I thought you might like to see, so I took some photos.
Here are the photos David sent:
Fun! I’m struck by how the “Knights” script is somewhat similar to Sacramento’s new “Kings” script, which I wrote about earlier today. An odd July 5th coincidence!
(Big thanks to David Staples for sharing these photos with us.)
