Coolest NCAA Logo Tournament: Ohio Valley


Welcome back to’s Coolest NCAA Logo Tournament. We consider ourselves a pretty big deal, and you should too.

The race is more riled up than Flip Saunder’s office phone with calls about the next best offer for Kevin Love. Believe us when we tell you how close some of these conferences are keeping it between each other right now.

Make your vote count and make up for any lost time; time you should have spent on here adding to our polls.

In case you missed the opening rounds of our tournament (how could you??), here are the links to the conferences polls we’ve already posted:

Coolest NCAA Logos Index

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

Our plan is to unveil two conferences a day, each day, until we finish all 32 conferences. Then, the winners in each conference would advance to the “NCAA Tournament,” which will run throughout the month of August.

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

Ohio Valley: This conference doesn’t boast quite the logo prominence that some of the other larger power conferences do, but don’t sleep on the programs on this side of the bracket.

This group is full of teams that consistently make it into NCAA tournament, and it’s reasonable to believe that voters will try to create the same type of success in this tournament.

Murray State’s Racers might have the coolest name in the nation, but will the logo justify that unofficial title? Can Kenneth Faried’s mammoth performances in the 2011 tournament jog people’s memories enough to get them to vote for his alma mater eagles? Can the Belmont Bears pull off the unfathomable upset like they almost did to Duke in 2008?

Stop reading my jabbering and get to the polls!

What can the Ohio Valley do for you?
