The athletic teams University of Connecticut will be getting a new look. Gone is the family friendly husky and in comes Jonathan Husky, a new, hungrier, vicious logo the teams will be sporting.
This caps the rebranding of the athletic teams at UConn.
The two major changes will be the use of “UCONN” across the front of every uniform worn by each team, and a new look for the Jonathan Husky logo. The new look is part of a new institutional branding and marketing program announced in early April by President Susan Herbst that uses “UCONN” as the primary mark of the University in all signage, publications, advertising and marketing activities.
“This logo is everything that a Husky is supposed to be -- powerful, aggressive, determined,” women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma says. “It is looking right through you and saying ‘Do not mess with me.' This is a streamlined, fighting dog, and I cannot wait for it to be on our uniforms and court.”
The new logo looks a lot better than the one used in years past.
BEST OF MAXIM
Geno Auriemma and Connecticut are back on top. With freshman Breanna Stewart leading the way, it might be a while before they relinquish that spot.
Stewart scored 18 of her 23 points in the first half and Connecticut won its eighth national championship with a 93-60 rout of Louisville on Tuesday night. It was the most lopsided victory in a title game.
The title tied Auriemma and...
His eighth national championship in hand, Geno Auriemma wanted to savor the moment and not talk about a dynasty just yet.
He had just tied Pat Summitt for the most titles in in NCAA history and wasn't ready to discuss a repeat. Yet it's hard to not see the Huskies winning more titles with freshman Breanna Stewart and sophomore Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis leading the way.

Without Baylor or Notre Dame to contend with, there was no doubt that Geno Auriemma and the Lady Huskies were poised to win the championship this season. While the Lady Cardinals of Louisville had an incredible run, last night they proved to be no match. They were simply out played and routed by a dominant UConn, losing 93-60.
Congrats to UConn and of course, Auriemma...
Jeff Walz has already guided the University of Louisville women’s basketball program to a pair of NCAA Tournament runner-up finishes in the past five years. Walz wants to keep the program at the highest level and Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma says Walz is the guy to do just that for the Cardinals.
Unfortunately for Louisville lighting could strike twice. The night before the men’s team from Louisville won the Men’s National Title and the school was poised to bring back another title Tuesday night. The Lady Cards ran into a road block when the played the UConn Huskies. The Lady Cards lost 93-60 to Geno Auriemma and his team.
Geno has now caught up with legendary coach...
Consider this fair warning Women’s Basketball. UConn is back!
If Notre Dame is still wondering if their recent loss to UConn was a fluke(after beating UConn 70f 8 games over the last few seasons) ask Louisville if UConn is back. Louisville was going for the sweep in title games with the Men winning last night, the question was could the women of Louisville win the title on their...
The UConn Huskies ran through the NCAA tournament en route to their eighth national championship.
With heralded freshman Breanna Stewart, sophomore Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and most of the team back, this could be the next great UConn era. A scary thought for the rest of women's college basketball.
Over the past three season UConn has lost 11 games - including twice in the Final...
The University of Connecticut’s athletics department decided that it was time for a change when it came to the school’s worn out sports logo that had been in use since the Paleolithic Era known as 2002. And new logos are always great news, because they mean new merchandise and more money, as us sucker fans just slap the plastic down on the counter and shout, “GIVE ME NEW SH...

That’s because on Thursday the University of Connecticut...
