A new logo has officially been unveiled at UConn, according to a report on the University’s website.
Here’s your new Husky dog:
Athletic director Warde Manuel on the new logo (per UConn Today): “Our student-athletes and coaches believe that the new Husky dog logo boldly reflects values such as pride, loyalty, strength, determination, and athleticism. They are all very excited to wear it into competition and to see it displayed prominently in our facilities. The new logo is a significant piece of the new visual identity of UConn athletics.”
Kevin Ollie: “I absolutely love this new Husky Dog logo. It looks fantastic on our uniforms and I know that our fans will love it as much as we do. Our new identity is a look that I know I will be proud to wear.”
Geno Auriemma: “This logo is everything that a Husky is supposed to be – powerful, aggressive, determined,” he 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.”
As for me?
I don’t hate it. I’m sure over time I’ll come to really like it. I don’t deal well with change, though, and I never thought there was anything wrong with the old Husky. Give us your thoughts below.
