  1. Velocipedia

    I don't get it. What's wrong with this bike?
  2. ORIGINAL (not copied) High School logos

    Ribbed for her pleasure
  3. Northern Michigan University is preparing to unveil new logos in April.

    I could tell right away that it was a Rickabaugh cat. That's not a good thing. Their cats all look the same. See Northwest Missouri State, Abilene Christian, Western Carolina, and now NMU. (And I'm sure there are more I'm not thinking of.)
  4. Frozen Four Poster

    Two things about the poster itself. First of all, the background should be a hockey rink or a picture of the arena. Something other than the logo, because it gets lost in this configuration. Have the Frozen Four logo on the upper center or something. Second, I'd put Thatcher Demko, the goalie for BC, as the player to use for them. He's a second-round pick in the draft, and widely seen as one of the top 3 or 4 goalies in the NCAA. He's the true star of the team, to my knowledge. On another note, as a UMass Lowell alumnus, they picked the worst possible time to lay a stinker, in the second round against Quinnipiac...
  5. New Rochester Rhinos logo?

    Are there even any colleges with this mascot? I can't think of any offhand? Certainly not in Division I...
  6. "Must Own Jerseys"

    Mine is the 2013 USA soccer jersey with the red/white stripes. I've been trying to find it... If someone would help me...?
  7. Anthony Davis

    Let's get two things out of the way. 1) I like the idea ofsleeved jerseys, if they're done right. I know I'm in the VAST minority. That said... 2) They have sleeved jerseys, but a rule disallowing undershirts? How does that make any sense?
  8. Alternate Super Bowl Logos

    Haven't they already said that they're going back to roman numerals next year?
  9. Eastern Illinois Univ. Hockey Concept

    You're 99% of the way there. My only complaint is the numbers on the third jersey would be difficult to read at a distance because they're the same color as the chest stripes. The only option I can think of is to make them grey, but that takes away the retro feel you're going for. I can't think of any other solution, though...
  10. Return of the Quebec Nordiques - A CrownCorvus Redesign

    I agree. I get airline from this.
  11. Teams named for Brands

    That insane reason is that Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are co-owners of the team.
  12. Mason Patriots (GMU) University Athletics Rebrand

    I concur about the neck, as Mr. Mason himself didn't have such a long neck. In fact, the figure depicted in the logo really doesn't look that much like George Mason himself. (See below.) That said, the logo is fantastic, and changing up the neck, and making the face look more like G.M. would be awesome. I'd love to see some uniform concepts to go with the presentation.
  13. Socks That Ruined NFL Looks

    Why do teams wear white socks in the first place?
  14. U. of North Dakota nickname - Have they announced one yet?

    Off the top of my head: Miami University (Redskins -> Redhawks) Eastern Michigan (Hurons -> Eagles) Marquette (Warriors -> Golden Eagles) Seattle (Chieftains -> Redhawks) Louisiana-Monroe (Indians -> Warhawks) Chowan (Braves -> Hawks) Southeast Missouri State (Indians -> Redhawks) I know its not a hawk but I still find this a funny switch: Carthage (Redmen -> Red Men) Yes the NCAA approved this... Where do you think I got my idea of the Washington Redskins adopting the Lombardi-era logo (minus the feathers) and changing to the "Red Skins"? I think they approved Carthage because red is the primary school color, and the teams wear red, making them "Red Men". Another school for you: In 1991, the University of Lowell became part of the UMass System, and became UMass Lowell. Their nickname changed from the Chiefs to the River Hawks. Another one: In 2006, Northeastern Oklahoma State changed from the Redmen to the RiverHawks. (Both schools use Rowdy as their mascot, and the web URLs are remarkably similar: goriverhawks.com for UML, goriverhawksgo.com for NSU.)
  15. Bigred's NFL (32/32 Chargers added, project clear!)

    I like the stripes on the jerseys. I'd like to see that thin-thick-thin pattern carry over to the rest of the uniform, from the pant striping to the helmet striping. (A front view of the helmet would work wonders to show what the striping actually would look like.) The Ny logo works wonderfully with the GIANTS wordmark. I'd be curious to see a custom numeral font to go with those two things.
