  1. Southern Miss has new gold jerseys for the 2017 season. Much better than their last attempt in 2013 and 2014. These are consistent with their current black and white jerseys that they've had since 2015. Their current set is decent, but the black on black numbers at home really dilute the look. The tweet also hints at gold pants; they've mostly worn black pants the past two seasons, but they did wear white pants twice late last season, once with a matte helmet.
  2. It's been a couple of years since I've done a college baseball concept series, so I started on these about a couple months ago. I finished the SEC West today so I figured I'd go ahead and post them. Basically I'm just doing a few tweaks and changes here and there; college baseball uniforms as a whole have been really good this year. Pants and hats are for the most part interchangeable in all concepts. For reference, my previous attempts at college baseball concepts: 2014 NCAA Baseball Concepts 2015 SEC Baseball Concepts The first team I did was Mississippi State, because bias. I completed and posted my Mississippi State "master plan" concept early last month. The full post can be seen here: http://www.hailstateunis.com/concepts/baseball-master-plan-2017-concept Basically, my Mississippi State concept contains 11 different jerseys; they would theoretically go in and out of rotation and 5 or 6 would be worn each year. Next is Alabama. For the Crimson Tide, I went with two jerseys for each color (white,gray,crimson). I think pinstripes would work for Alabama; I gave them both white and gray versions. On the white jerseys, I went with a cursive "Crimson Tide" script. I used the official block "Alabama" on gray and crimson jerseys. A second crimson jersey has the "A" logo. Arkansas already has some really good uniforms. I removed the side panels, added a sleeve patch, added a second red jersey, and brought back the Sunday cream jersey. Otherwise, Arkansas is already good. Auburn has some awesome cream throwbacks, so I wanted to expand on those a bit. I added a navy hat with an orange AU (to be used with the cream and gray uniforms) and retained both current hats. The "Auburn" script is on the cream, gray, orange, and alternate navy uniforms. The other jerseys (white, pinstripe, primary navy) have the "AU" logo. Copperplate has been eliminated throughout the set; block numbers are used on every jersey. Like Arkansas and Mississippi State, LSU already has some of the best baseball uniforms in college baseball. I added a tiger logo patch to the sleeve, piping to the pants and sleeves, and added a double outline to the numbers on the purple jersey. That's it. The biggest change I made with Ole Miss is switch to the alternate "UM" logo full time. I think it's a better and more unique logo than the block "M"; Ole Miss should seriously start implementing it throughout their athletic identity. I also updated the "Rebels" script and added a faux-back pinstripe (somewhat based on these) set using the alternate "Ole Miss" script also used on the powder blue uniforms. B/W/R piping is used throughout the uniforms. For Texas A&M, I brought back the "Texas Aggies" script on the primary white and gray jerseys. Bevels are gone!! Alternate hat with white front panel and state outline logo is back. Hope to finish the East sometime soon.
  3. Green Bay's home look is perfect. No changes needed there at all. Their road jerseys are nice, too; my only problem is that the striping allows white and gold to touch. So for this concept, the striping on the road jerseys is reverted to the classic green-gold-green-gold-green. The color rush jerseys are based on the 1953 uniform set, which used a Kelly green and athletic gold color palette.
  4. I noticed that when I was uploading it, and I realize what happened: the red helmet looked too bright originally so I darkened it a bit for my mockup. Forgot to change back to the regular red for the rest of the concept. That being said, I'll leave it because I think it kind of works for Atlanta. Differentiates them from other red teams in the league.
  5. With the Falcons moving into a new stadium next year, It'd make sense for them to update their look for the move. They do need an upgrade; the early 2000s piping looks really dated. In this concept, I used a slightly modified version of their current logo, removing the silver outline and slightly thinning it. The primary helmets are red; black helmets are retained in the "what if no one helmet rule" part. For the most part, the concept is in the style of the Falcons' older uniforms, with one major exception: Falcon wings are added to the sleeve caps. This idea was inspired by the wing design in the new stadium.
  6. As I'm sure it did lots of people, today's news of the Chargers moving to LA got me thinking about what they should do with their uniforms when they complete the move. A bit of an unpopular opinion on here, I really like the Chargers's current set. It has a great mix of powder blue and navy throughout, and I'd rather they'd stay in San Diego and not change it. However, with them moving, it looks like changes will indeed happen. They unveiled an LA logo this morning, which I actually don't hate. The color scheme they're presenting of navy and white is incredibly boring though, not to mention the exact same as what the Rams are likely to use. I'm using the LA Bolt logo, but switching up the color scheme. Powder Blue returns as the primary color, and gold is retained as the secondary. "Storm Gray" is added in place of Navy, an idea I've thought of before and have seen mentioned several times on this board. The gray color is used as an accent throughout and as the primary color on a "color rush" alternate. I almost went with powder blue helmets full time for this concept. They're still included in the "What if no one helmet rule" section, but white helmets get the nod as the primaries. With the Rams, I wanted to create a clear contrast with their "roommates." The Rams seem to be trending toward Navy and White, and that's where I went with this concept. Simple Navy and White with Ram horns on the sleeves and the end zone font for numbers and wordmark. Yellow does stay in the color rush, which is just a slightly updated version of the one they wore in 2015. Their "what if" helmet is a white helmet with navy horns, which would allow for a slick stormtrooper look.
  7. Honestly, with the Cowboys, I just wanted to mock up something with Dak Prescott again. My motto for them was "compromise brings consistency." Dallas notoriously uses two different shades of silver and two different shades of navy/blue. For this concept, I took a mix of the colors and created a set that is consistent throughout. The home and away set are exact opposites, as are the two alternate/color rush uniforms, both of which work better with a white helmet.
  8. For the Steelers, I only made a few minor changes to their classic look. A darker "steel" gray color is introduced for the logo outline and primary facemask color. The helmet is now matte black, which fits their tough persona. The number font is back to block, with a stencil to fit in with the "steel" theme. The pants stripe now reflects the pattern of the sleeve stripe, as opposed to being solid black. Alternates include the color rush from last season, along with another gold color rush uniform. The alternate helmet, if allowed, would be gold.
  9. Imgur Album Links: Saints Steelers Cowboys Chargers Rams Falcons Packers With the NFL Playoffs starting today, I decided to mock up some ideas I had for a three NFL Teams: the Saints, Steelers, and Cowboys. I loved the color rush uniforms for both the Saints and Steelers; ideas from both are implemented in these concepts. For the Saints, the concept basically is their color rush; there is no reason they shouldn't adopt that look full time. I simplified their helmet logo a bit and brought back the Louisiana state outline logo as a chest patch. In addition to the white jerseys taken from the color rush set, the concept includes a black jersey with gold-white-gold-white-gold stripes as well as a gold jersey with b-w-b-w-b stripes. An alternate white helmet idea is also shown; it would only be used if the NFL were to lift the one helmet rule, obviously.
  10. Definitely mix and match, though for State and OM, I think I showed most all of the acceptable combos. The decals for USM are completely interchangeable and served to show different options more than anything.
  11. 2. Ole Miss The Rebels’ look is serviceable as is. If they didn’t make any more changes ever, they’d still have a good look. I do have a few changes I’d like to see, however. I. Gray facemask on primary navy helmets. I know some on this board are opposed to gray facemasks, but in Ole Miss’s case, I think they would be an improvement. If you only wear this helmet with gray pants, then you have consistency between colors (navy, red, and gray) on the helmets and pants. II. Add TV Numbers. I don’t know why they aren’t there now. LSU makes them fit. III. Add a second pair of gray pants to be worn with powder blue helmets. Even as a Mississippi State fan, I can admit that Ole Miss’s powder blue helmets are beautiful. However, they’re always worn with the gray pants, which have a navy stripe on them. There needs to be a separate pair of gray pants with a powder blue stripe. IV. Add the UM logo to the collar and pants. Last season, Ole Miss started using a UM logo on some alternate baseball caps. I think it’d work well on the pants, as well as the Vapor Untouchable collar. A couple extra, non-traditional ideas… V. Bring back the navy-based road uniforms. From 2013 through 2015, the Rebels had two road jerseys: the traditional red-accented and a new navy-accented. The navy-accented alternates were not worn in 2016. This concept proposes bringing them back, along with navy-striped white pants. VI. Add a white helmet and an alternate design for the navy helmet. The last few seasons, the Rebels have come very close to wearing uniforms that excluded one of their primary colors. I say why not go all out. Add a white helmet with red decals and get some white decals to go on the navy helmet. A prototype of the white helmet floated around a few years back, and I recall some positive response.

Southern Miss Southern Miss’s current look is lightyears better than the one that preceded it. Still, it’s not great by any means. They really wanted to make black a point of emphasis, and in doing so they neglected gold. They wore these amazing throwbacks in 2012, but went 0-12 that year. I made this concept back in August of 2015, and for the most part I stick by it. This is just on an updated template with some minor tweaks. It is a Nike template; it was easier to deal with than a Russell template. For this concept I’ll assume that USM signs back with Nike. Major points for Southern Miss: I. Design based on throwbacks. Black shoulder caps, then gold-black-gold shoulder stripes. This design is kept consistent across black, white, and gold jerseys. For pants, the striping pattern is black-gold-black on gold, gold-black-gold on black, and black-gold-black on white. II. Shiny black helmets at home. Same as now, except stripes are added and the “Southern Miss” wordmark is un-inverted. Still no white, just black and gold. III. Matte black helmets on the road. They wore matte black helmets during their successful 2011 campaign, and brought them back late in this past season. I hope we see them more often on the road in the future. In this concept, there are three different decal options for the matte helmets; “Southern Miss” wordmark, full body eagle logo, and eagle head logo. IV. Gold helmets as alternates. The Golden Eagles wore gold helmets as alternates during their 0-23 streak in 2012 and 2013. They did finally win their first game in 24 vs UAB in the gold helmets, and promptly haven’t worn them since. Give them a black facemask instead of the gray that they were using, and the gold helmets actually look good. Same decal rotation as the matte helmets.

  12. With the college football season coming to a close, fans start to look back on the season as a whole and talk about what needs to be improved. Of course, this generally applies to on-field performance, but the same principle can be applied to uniforms. Some teams already have theirs perfected. Some have a good base and just need to build off of it. Others need a complete rebrand. None of the three FBS teams in Mississippi have reached that stage of perfection yet, but none are at stage zero, either. Mississippi State’s 2016 pants and road jerseys are as close to perfection as possible, but they need to update the home jerseys to be consistent. Ole Miss has a pretty classic look, but color inconsistencies, some of which can’t be fixed without deviating from tradition, are prominent. Southern Miss is farthest from a great look, but they have a solid foundation and some great throwbacks that they should build off of. ------------------------------------ 1. Mississippi State The last few seasons, Mississippi State’s football uniform changes have followed a pattern of two steps forward, one step back. This past season, they added , a road jersey with no black outlines, and a silver helmet that fit well with rest of set. However, they kept the maroon jersey with black outlines, got rid of the matte maroon helmet, and wore a head-scratching black jersey with a templated Adidas design- Louisville wore the exact same one. What needs changing in 2017: I. Make the maroon jerseys match the white jerseys. Remove the black outlines on the numbers and put white-gray-white stripes on the sleeves, matching those on the maroon pants. Granted, I would have gone with gray-white-gray, but it looks like they’ve settled on w-g-w, presumably to retain two white stripes on the sleeve. II. Bring back matte maroon helmets. The biggest disappointment of 2016 was the lack of matte maroon helmets. They were replaced by the silver helmets, which admittedly worked in their own right. However, the matte maroons were the Bulldogs’ best helmets. I’d like to keep both the matte maroon and silver helmets, but if one has to go, let it be silver. III. Make the gray pants match the white and maroon pants. By far the most minor change needed, the gray pants just need to be updated to match the format of the other two. Remove the M-State logo from on top of the stripe on the left side and put one on the front left. IV. Add gray alternates instead of black. State has a silver helmet and gray pants. A gray jersey, with stripes matching the gray pants, only makes sense. It would look so much better than the string of black alternates do. IF they were to go back to a black jersey though, it should match the other jerseys, with white-maroon-white or silver-maroon-silver stripes. More like the 2015 version than 2016.

  13. Not a fan of these at all... My take: http://www.hailstateunis.com/2016-football-season/bulldogs-to-wear-american-flag-design-vs-texas-am
  14. Some pics from BYU vs Mississippi State last night. http://www.hailstateunis.com/2016-football-season/silver-vs-royal-in-2ot-showdown-in-provo
  15. BYU wearing Royal Blue tonight vs Mississippi State. Bulldogs wearing Silver-White-White. Wanted to see Maroon-White-Gray for maximum contrast, which would have been a great matchup, but I digress. Also, Ole Miss is wearing Powder Blue for the first time this season tomorrow at Arkansas.
