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.
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 WTNH.com’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.
American Athletic Conference:
The AAC has a solid logo conference–it’s not on par with the big boys like the America East, but it’s got several outfits that can make a deep run in the big logo tourney.
UConn, East Carolina, Houston and Temple all boast quality logos, and Cincinnati’s alternate is restaurant-quality. But Tulsa and Tulane’s alternates–now they’re championship caliber. Tulsa’s looks like some kind of Twinkies mascot.
