Coolest NCAA Logo Tournament: America East

Welcome to the first-ever NCAA College Logo Tournament!

Yes, you read that right. A coolest NCAA logo tournament. Right here. In real life. I know, I know–you probably don’t even know what to do with your hands right now.

Coolest NCAA Logos Index

Years from now, scholars will probably maintain that this very article is the zenith of human technology, and the internet. It is quite possibly the greatest thing that the internet could ever hope to be responsible for creating. Well this, and’s “Meet the Reporters” page.

Our logo tournament combines the greatness of the NCAA basketball tournament and its single-elimination format with the coolness of college logos. I mean, I’m just going to be real with you….I’m probably going to win a Pullitzer Prize for this one.

At the end of the tournament, we will have one champion (like most tournaments)—and one school that can claim it has the coolest logo in all of college sports.


Just think about that for a second. It’s an awesome responsibility you people have.

So without further blustering, let’s get to it.

Here are the ground rules:

-64 teams will make the NCAA Coolest Logo Field (just like the basketball tournament should be).

-Each of the conferences will receive one automatic bid, voted on by fans (assuming there are any).

-At-large bids will be chosen based on the non-league champions with the most votes

We start things off with the America East conference. Next, we’ll tackle the AAC, and then the Atlantic 10, and go down alphabetically from there.

Check back for a complete index of all of the conference tournaments.

America East: In terms of logos, the America East is a power conference. It’d have an automatic BCS bid if berths were based solely on how sweet your conference’s logos are.

From the Albany Great Danes to the Maine Black Bears, right down to the UMass-Lowell Riverhawks, I mean, wow. The A-East is to logos what the SEC is to football.

Unfortunately, Connecticut’s representative in this conference, the University of Hartford, is lacking just a little bit. We seeded them 7th. But hey–that’s like being Arkansas in the SEC–it’s tough to win in this conference. When the Vermont Catamounts and the UMBC Retrievers are taking up the bottom two spots, you know this conference is the real deal.
