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*T, A-HOLES!” at the local bookstore so we can look cool beans when the new season begins.
As for UCONN’s new look, it’s that mean-looking husky above, with that look that says, “Hey, take our sports seriously or else!” Don’t take my word for it, either. Listen to UCONN’s Big Daddy Swagger himself, Geno Auriemma, who is hot off of winning his 8th NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship.
Head women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma says he is eager to see the new look on his student-athletes.

Anything jump out at you? Of course not. You’re not a trained meme-ologist like I am (six years at DeVry, mutha f*ckaaaaaas). Check out 1959 in the upper left. ENHANCE!
Does he look a little familiar to any of you? He should, because… IT’S CUPCAKE DOG!!!
That’s right, the University of Connecticut has, at some point, invented time travel and used it go back in time and help the program dominate the Yankee Conference over the span of four decades. However, like most time travelers – I’m looking at you, Nic Cage and Keanu Reeves – the Huskies got sloppy and thought that no one would ever be the wiser. If you ask me, this is even sloppier than the blatant theft that UCONN committed on its last logo:
As that was obviously based on this:
I will accept my Nobel Prize whenever the chocolate hardens, thank you.
