From the MSU University Relations website:

The block "S" may not be commingled with other marks or altered except to be enlarged or reduced proportionally. It may not be contained within other graphic devices or be used as a replacement letterform in any name or word.

Altering the Block S with a mark AND using it as a replacement letterform in a name, meanwhile, is apparently an important part of waking a sleeping giant.

P.S. You may be able to sense that I'm not exactly "letting this go."  (It's subtle, I know, but it's there.)

P.P.S. On that note, click here to learn if the Block S is a logo used by state universities far and wide across this great land and, therefore, not something worth protecting as a Michigan State icon.
