Team dumps logo near buttocks after 70-0 loss

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- The Idaho Vandals football team is dumping the letter "I" from the buttocks region of players' new pants following a season-opening 70-0 loss to the Arizona Wildcats.

Rob Spears, the school's athletic director, says nobody realized just how the logo placed in the center of the players' behinds would look before they tried their pants on.

Spears told the Idaho Statesman the sewn-in University of Idaho logo has since been hastily removed by equipment managers after complaints.

Spears says there was a miscommunication with equipment supplier Nike over the placement of the logo.

"I was disappointed with the look and the appearance," Spears says. "It's changed."

As a result, the Vandal pants will be logo-less when the team's players suit up for their game this Saturday with Idaho State University.
