  1. Same guy must have designed the London 2012 Olympic logo.
  2. The only way to make Ball more annoying is to sprinkle in a bit of the human version of a 56k baud modem in a blender, Stephen A. Smith.
  3. He must love his music.
  4. I like the idea. Probably best to keep it confined to certain leagues. Also, consider whether someone drafts a team logo, uniform set, or both. Miami's U logo is iconic. Their current uniforms are a mess.
  5. Most of the teams known for "big splashes" (Oregon) are pretty erratic with their announcements. The traditional teams who typically drop a single alternate (Texas, Notre Dame, etc) each season seem like they unveil during the summer lull leading up to fall camp and the school/conference media days.
  6. I didn't mean Solich (he was a Husker guy first, remember!) but rather the times before Adidas starting royally sh+++g on the face of college football uniform design.
  7. Back before the dark times...
  8. Oh, I'll give you that completely. I just meant the everyday normal uniforms. I don't get bent out of shape for a single alternate game each year. But seeing what they've done to UCLA, among others, makes me concerned in general. It's sad im a way, though, because the QUALITY of the gear is great. I see Nebraska receivers RAVING on social media about the AdiZero cleats and other gear being stupidly light and strong. It's just their design team that needs a slap upside the head.
  9. As a fan of maybe the one P5 team Adidas HASN'T ruined, I don't like their odds. For every Adidas Nebraska set, there are about 17 UCLA all terrain radials.
  10. Ohio has such a great look. Aren't they Russell currently? I think some of the "non designer" brands (ie, not Nike, UA or Adidas) can work really well on simple, classic looks. As in the case of Ohio, if it ain't broke don't fix it.
  11. Some people just want to buy a team jersey for cheap. I get that. It may not be ethical or encouraged, but people also shoplift and pirate movies.
  12. I still want to see them get rid of physical goalposts and use laser beams instead. If the PAT or FG would have hit the uprights, or crosses the plane, it would explode.
  13. Being that this is in the logo subforum, how long until we see Nike Volt/Anthracite pylons, or hydrodipped goalposts?
  14. NASCAR has some inherently fugly design because it's often just a main sponsor's colors/logo and then they just cram as many OTHER sponsor stickers all over the car. It's nigh impossible to have clean, succinct design when you're slapping together random brands like McDonald's, Pfizer, Duracell, UPS and M&Ms.
  15. Wisconsin football looks really sharp. 😉
  16. Oh God, I almost forgot about that game. Thanks for the laugh.
  17. Georzagatown Bulldogs.
  18. IMO, either keep the Gold/Yellow as-is or ditch it completely. Taking it off the uniform (kinda) and leaving it on the logo is a half measure.
  19. I was very confused by this thread until I realized there is some dude named Isaiah Thomas. Growing up in the Bulls and Bad Boys Pistons rivalry means there's only one Isiah Thomas that I'm aware of.
  20. The Jumpman logo is beyond stupid on anything that's not basketball. I can't wait until Nike signs a hockey team and slaps that thing on the ice.
  21. I was hoping for this guy:
  22. I figured it was Nike, Under Armor and Adidas.
  23. Whenever I see Nike's ginormous collars it reminds me of Meteor Man from Birdman & The Galaxy Trio:
  24. For the NBA you could just grab one of the basketball nets after the game. It all depends on how fast and motivated you are.
  25. Was having this discussion with a friend the other day and thought I'd post it here to see what everyone thinks. ACC - Clemson. Classic, clean lines. Miami and FSU could be on here if they cleaned up the inconsistencies and superfluous patterns. B1G - Hardest conference for a classic look fan, by far. Ohio State is out because of their continued tweaking of shoulder stripes and tv numbers. Of course, it's hard not to homer pick Nebraska, but then I'd have to also take Wisconsin in the same breath. Overall, the winged cap wins, and I gotta go Michigan. XII - Texas. Toss up with Oklahoma, but the unique burnt orange color tips it to Bevo. PAC - USC. Stick to the classics. SEC - Ole Miss. You could go Alabama, but the Rebs have a nice color scheme, especially when they wear the gray pants.
