The progenitor of all the "wishbone C" logos was the University of Chicago Maroons, who were wearing it as far back as 1898:

I saw this cap a few days ago as well.

Obviously it's used all over the place but this one surprised me. Knew the Maroons were the first though. Do they still use it/have ANY sports?

Yes, it's still Chicago's primary athletic mark. http://athletics.uchicago.edu/landing/index

 

They still compete in football, too, although at the D-III level, a far cry from when they were a national power in the early 20th century. They use the wishbone-C as their helmet logo, although it looks like a skinnier version than the Bears and Reds use:
