It is an absolute shame that the UConn football program does not get much national attention. I so want to see the imaged of a running back bearing down on a poor defensive back or a hulking defensive lineman moments before he sacks the quarterback.
It will be like White Fang attacks.
I know the school said that when they redesigned their logo they took great pains to...
There had been rumors for a while that the Connecticut Huskies would be getting a new logo, and those rumors were confirmed on Thursday when the Huskies unveiled their new logo. The new logo will be used by all 24 men’s and women’s athletic teams and uniforms for those teams will not be unveiled until the fall.

The difference between UConn and the rest of the nation is that it doesn’t matter to us whether it’s men’s or women’s basketball. Both teams are well-loved, and they get to celebrate a lot – more than any other teams in college basketball in recent years.

The Connecticut Huskies don’t have a whole lot to play for this season. Other than a few guys being able to showcase their talent and impress NBA scouts, the 2012-13 season is pretty meaningless for UConn.
UConn was declared ineligible to play in the postseason in 2013 because of a low academic-rating. The University appealed the decision twice, but the NCAA stood their ground...
