WASHINGTON - After debuting a new logo to a hail of criticism, there are not many kind words going to the University of Connecticut Huskies after the school released a photo of its football team helmet.

The school released its new logo earlier this week.

"The new, sleek and more angry looking Husky is based on a photo of an actual Siberian Husky," U.Conn Athletic Director Warde Manuel told

"All athletic teams will wear it, though the old fashioned C' that has always been on baseball caps will remain," the article says.
