Classic Team Logo of The Day

15 Dec

Logo of the alma mater of the player featured on the sports card of the day, Troy Aikman – the UCLA Bruins. The Bruins have never been a dominant football program, usually playing second fiddle in their conference to USC, but they’ve been competent, winning a national title in 1954 and numerous bowl games. They also had a Heisman Trophy winner – QB Gary Beban in 1962. The school’s basketball program, on the other hand, was THE dominant force under coach John Wooden in the 1960s and ’70s, featuring such all time players as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then Lew Alcindor), Bill Walton, Gail Goodrich, Lucius Allen, Walt Hazzard, Henry Bibby, Marques Johnson, Curtis Rowe, Sidney Wicks and Reggie Miller. Bruins’ hoop teams have won an amazing 11 national championships over the years.
