ESPN U team specific logos

Recommended Posts

The St. Mary's one is lost on me. I know little about the school or it's traditions besides the name Gaels. Can anyone clarify? Thanks.

I'm with you. My Dad went to Iona, which shares the same team name, and he told me that besides being the root for the Gaelic language that it was a fraternal order of monks. The U logo looks like some sort of suit of armor/scholar thing, similar to Rutgers.

Yeah still stumped on this. Did a little digging around on their wiki page and found this phrase:

"It [sMC] is known for its liberal arts education, including its Great Books and Seminar programs, its business program, which in recent years has become the college's most popular program, as well as the nursing program, partnered with Samuel Merritt University, whose campus is in Oakland, and the school of education."

Still curious, though.

I know it was already cleared up that Miami U was before the Canes version, but regardless UM is Michigan. But I will agree that UMD is the University of Minnesota Duluth.

This is their old logo or something similar to it:

they used to have a knight mascot as well. i imagine it has something to do with the crusades. the old king arthur ones, not the current cheney ones.

They're on ESPNU next week for lacrosse, but from last year I remember it was similar to UCLA's bear one and the ESPNU banner in red. Hopefully there will be a screenshot out of that

I was hoping they'd have Touchdown the Bear hugging the U like in our primary.
