    Did I think about college football? Oh, Lord, I completely forgot to think about college football!! Holy crap! Thank God you're here, Mr. Brown1. I'm going to go think about college football for a while. I'll probably be gone for a bit, but I really need to spend some time thinking about college football.

    Great. These uniforms are for a team that plays in the NFL. The NFL and college football have a different visual aesthetic and that's true regardless of the apparel company they use. They should look like an NFL team and not Coastal Carolina's practice uniform.

    The AAF reveals next week that the rumors are true. Former UCLA QB and Head Coach Rick Neuheisel is returning to the world of alternative football leagues as the head coach of the AAF's second franchise in southern California. The one-time USFL signal caller returns home to California and back to coaching with the Alliance. The franchise, set to begin play in February 2018, will be based out of Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, hoping to cash in on a jilted Charger fanbase as well as the ideal weather for a February-April league by playing in sunny SoCal. The franchise also revealed their name and uniforms at the press conference. While the league's claims that the Sun Yellow, Sky Blue and Surf Blue combo was meant to portray the rich colors of San Diego's seaside locale and ocean vistas, those at the event were quick to point out that the colors also call back the image of the recently departed Chargers of the NFL. The franchise opted to adopt a beach culture theme, and will be dubbed the San Diego Surf, keeping with the singular noun theme set forth by Orlando's franchise, the Juice. The Surf will don yellow helmets with a crashing wave logo occupying much of the helmet space similar in some way's to the USFL's Michigan Panther logo of the early 80's. The jerseys will also be yellow, with an abstract wave pattern on each shoulder and sleeve. White pants will have another abstract pattern, this time a sun rising over a wavy stripe which evokes the ocean horizon. Coach Neuheisel states that he expects his team, which will be comprised largely of players with California roots, will reflect the passion of San Diego football fans and that he expects to play a wide open style on offense and an attacking, agressive defense. Below is the released uniform and logo media sheet for the San Diego Surf. The AAF has confirmed that each team will have only one uniform, not the usual home/away pairing. With each franchise having a unique color combination in the 8 team league, league officials believe that the color v. color matchups will not create issues for viewers and will provide a dynamic look to the league.

    You've been given a warning point on the matter. You've been told to cut it off a few times by mods publicly. So maybe keep that in mind.

    I just cant get over how well done the helmets are. The helmet was the worst thing about the last design and now they have what I would say is the best one yet. JAX is so much better than "JAGS". I'm guilty of using the nickname but I don't prefer it and didn't like that it was everywhere after 2013. Also hoping this stops any JAC nonsense.

    Still haven't had time to work on any requests, so let's move on with another playoff team I had complete.

    Not a fair comparison, since the Dolphins were more of a tweak vs a total redesign. The dolphins design has been in place for years, they simply replaced one color (blue) with more of another (orange.) YOu can't compare them with Texas, Penn State, and the Lions throwbacks because those other teams had only one (Texas or Penn State) or two (Lions) non-white colors, so simple options made sense. The jags use black, teal, and gold as non-white colors, so any option that rivals the ones you mentioned would leave a major color out, which renders what they went with a failure. There's no problem with single color numbers, just like there's no prob with double or triple color numbers. It all depends on the stiuation. To hate all single-color-number uniforms is absolutely stupid. In many ways, a plain single-colored number can actually accentuate a jersey. A plain number draws attention to other design elements (like Steelers sleeve strips). In this case, it's a poor choice, but in general there's nothing wrong wtih single color numbers. It doesn't throw anything out the window. THey could have filed two years prior, and only gotten to the one phase once Tom C joined. I bet they were already into the design prior to that, but even if not, it doesn't mean they started after the two-year mandate. This is stupid. It's easy to say after seeing what they revealed, but you weren't the one dealing with the team and trying to meet everything they wanted (whatever that was.) It's so easy to say stuff like this after something is unveiled, but the bottom line is you didn't come up with this. You're just a guy on a message board like 99% of the rest of us. Dude, I love your style, but come on. We're obv not discussing college here. In fact, many of us have compared these to college unis in a derogatory manner. It's clear that unless someone specifically mentions anything about college, the comments are restricted to NFL.

    "The primary set is black, a teal jersey is listed as the alternate" YOU'RE A FLORIDA TEAM. YOU PRIDE YOURSELF ON TEAL. WEAR TEAL. WHAT IS SO HARD ABOUT THIS?

    Hi! Not new here but it has been long since I finished my last concept... And now back with a NFL to NBA concept. First I want to thank @R3G for his amazing nike NBA template! Very user-friendly. The 1990s NBA jerseys seem to be controversial because of it's colors and details, and I would like to see how the NFL teams can fit into it. Since the Eagles unveiled their current set in 1990s so I decided to start with it. Inspired by the 1992-95 Hawks set and 1997-2011 Wizards set, which both have single-sided stripe and similar curved jersey logos. May back with the white/alt or I will start another new team. C&C is always appreciated!! Thanks for reading!! Edit: Lists: NFC East: #1 Eagles / #4 Giants / #21 Cowboys NFC West: #11 Seahawks / #17 Rams NFC South: #14 Falcons / #20 Panthers NFC North: #8 Vikings(v2) / #12 Lions / #19 Bears AFC East: #7 Patriots / #10 Dolphins / #13 Jets AFC West(finished): #5 Raiders / #16 Chargers / #24 Broncos / #25 Chiefs AFC South(finished): #3 Colts(v2) / #6 Jaguars / #22 Texans / #23 Titans AFC North(finished): #2 Ravens / #9 Steelers / #15 Browns #18 Bengals

    Ready to start a new concept thread for the intriguing Alliance of American Football. 8 teams playing spring football. The first team to be identified has been Orlando, headed by the "Old Ball Coach", Steve Spurrier. We will try to predict all 8 franchises ahead of the AAF announcement of teams and team names (which they have said are coming). I will also periodically request feedback on key decisions, such as future cities, identity focus or color scheme, but with Orlando I am starting on my own and I am setting some limitations which will apply to all teams. 1. All teams must use 3 colors + white in their color scheme and uniforms. 2. All teams must use non-count or singular nouns for their mascot. I know this is controversial, and I actually am a fan of count nouns (Tigers, Bears, Saints, etc.) over non-count nouns (Fury, Thunder, Revolution), but I wanted to challenge myself and put a weird requirement on the AAF. 3. All teams will have only 1 uniform. In a league with only 8 teams it should be possible to avoid duplication of the helmet and jersey color, which should provide enough contrast to make it unnecessary to have a clash or home/road uniforms. This means that teams must each have unique color combinations to avoid repetition. And so, without further ado, the first AAF franchise, taking advantage of the rich tradition of local college football by utilizing the color palette (slightly altered) of the U. of Florida: Royal, Kelly and Orange, and tying their identity to the local economy in a tongue in cheek way with just a hint of double entendre... ...and with due credit to BradyLvie (name) and ThePeam (name and the Juice squirt concept in the logo.) OK... now, we start the AAF off with... Your Orlando JUICE!!! Yes, the AAF will require the league logo and "Alliance" at each collar and the logo on the pants. No jersey advert yet (Is it Nike? Adidas? Heck it could be Kelme or Umbro for all I care, I am not a fan of the branding by the producer, so I am leaving it off. I thought about corporate sponsors on the back or sleeve, but decided a more traditionally clean jersey was best. Next up, we decide if the rumors are true. Is Rick Neuheisel leading a team in Southern California, and if so, where will they play?

    It shows that you don't need a complete overhaul to correct a flawed uniform design. Like the majority of designs that come from this community. Small tweak here, small tweak there, fixed. I really believe that's exactly what will happen in Jacksonville in 2023. They'll see the fans reaction to the original Jags uniforms when they use their throwbacks, they'll add striping to the pants, add double borders to numbers (single at least), and hopefully fix those stupid socks.

    Funny, I hate the Dallas stars’ use of single color #s. The old browns were another example of it working really well. That jersey would have been downgraded by an outline.

    It's eye-opening to see how much better these uniforms got by making relatively minor tweaks.

    There’s not enough teal on the white jersey. They are gonna try to wear teal pants with it and it’s gonna look goofy. There’s just not enough teal on that white jersey and it pisses me off. The all white pants look so stupid.

    As spectacular as the Dolphins update. These minor changes would make this set absolutely stunning.

    Would have liked to have seen the accents in gold with a black collar. It would have been reminiscent of their first uniforms with the black cuff and gold stripe. Also instead of having the neck stripes end abruptly and been pointed off would have better matched the cuff stripes. I have no problems with the helmets, they are fine the way they are now. As for pants they could have done something to match the striping pattern. I think the single color numbers is fine, it kind of reminds me of way back when most team had white numbers on colorful templates. Also going back to a lighter shade of gold to me fits better. Here is a quick mock up of what I would have done with this set.
