I forgot to mention, Cola, that you're right about the beak being wrong, but it's not the length that's the problem, it's the basic shape. What you have on your sketch is the beak that's indicative of a bird of prey (the round end of the top is a giveaway), but a rooster has a beak that's much straighter, relatively speaking. Here's what I'm talking about:

Bird of prey:

I prefer more of the classic identities. It seems that most of the rebrands now are switching to more 3D artwork.

Thanks for all of the feedback so far, I am definitely in agreement with some of you on changes that need to be made.

I went ahead and vectored the original sketch to give me a starting point:

Seems too high schoolish to me.

Think of the spur as the pitch fork for ASU that Nike rebranded.

Explain to me what you mean...like, it should extend down the back side of the logo more? Or it should all be pointed away from the beak/front of the logo?

The updated version is definitely more on target, Cola. When you finally decide the best way to handle the "sack", you think you could add a little bit of detail in the feathers? I was expecting another "line" that matches the outer line on the bottom, right side of the neck, like what is in the sketch. Then again, after looking at it another time, that other line looks like it may have been from something you changed about the sketch. Still, do you think a little bit of detail could be added? I mean, not so much where we would have essentially the same problem we do with the current logo, maybe something that would keep folks from saying it looks too "cartoony". I hope I'm making sense.

Also, if your final product ends up being well-received, will you consider submitting it to the university? Just wondering.

The motion C is cool. I don't associate it with the Gamecocks, but as a stand alone concept, it hits the mark. Colacock, this is good stuff.

Actually working on that right now.

Still not sure what to do with the nutsack. Does everyone still think it stands out too much? I mean...we are the 'Cocks!

Personal preference, I prefer it without the C, but if the C is going to be in the design, I like the understated, yet adequate update.

ColaCock, I do not have any of the talent you are blessed with.

When I hear the editing suggesting and try to merged them with the drawing you presented, I came up with this...It still keeps the sack too...
