  1. Glad to see a Hamptonian on here. I'm not a native but my dad's side of the family is from the 757. Its like my home away from home. Grandparents use to live on Dare Ave by Shell Rd. Got family property out in Surry County. My grandfather (Sussex Central alum) use to take me to Darling Stadium on weeknights to catch Tyrod and Tajh play growing up. Wilkes BBQ was a traditional pregame spot. I can see if I can find some Phenix High photos (now defunct) to post. Also, seeing Phoebus (2010s) beat Stone Bridge (DMV, Northern VA, Loudoun County) every other year in the playoffs put a big smile on his face before he passed away last fall.
  2. FAMU's green isn't that teal.
  3. Florida A&M road whites *sigh* Check out @FAMUFOOTBALL's Tweet: https://twitter.com/FAMUFOOTBALL/status/764531637883375618?s=09
  4. This is the 1st draft I was referring to. I wonder if the Jag's organization forced them to start over or not.
  5. http://m.bcuathletics.com/mobile/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=23910&ATCLID=210976204 Bethune-Cookman of the MEAC (D1, FCS) just fully unveiled their updated logos Wednesday morning. The Wildcat logo is actually an original, cleaned up version of a "mock up" that closely resembled the Jacksonville Jaguars logo. This version was used as a helmet decal during the Florida Classic in Orlando vs Florida A&M. When Chris pointed out the similarities on Twitter last Fall, BCU deleted all traces of the 1st draft on social media. I have a copy of the Jags ripoff.
  6. Speaking of FAMU, they just signed a 3 year deal with Nike. Uniforms will be revealed within the next 2-3 weeks.
  7. https://www.instagram.com/p/BEOxl1PsUPG/?hl=en Meanwhile on the HBCU circuit, Delaware State signs with Nike. Hoping that these mockups aren't the finished product though...
  8. Rooting for the West Indies to win it all.
  9. As the college lacrosse season started this week, new gear was unveiled for the first time. Let's get to business, shall we? Furman has new Nike home jerseys against Ohio State. https://twitter.com/Inside_Lacrosse/status/696023075452751872/photo/1 Navy has new golden chrome decals.
  10. Norfolk State is getting a new chrome helmet next season.
  11. Meant to put Shahid instead of Amir.
  12. http://www.adweek.com/news/advertising-branding/global-brand-marketers-winning-intensity-has-helped-multiple-under-armours-success-167475 The HBCU-wide contract with Russell end after this school year. Some schools may resign with them but most are projected to sign elsewhere. I've been tracking the situation all year long. Under Armour is aggressively contacting schools for a new contract. At least 15 HBCUs will be signed to UA after June including, Howard, Hampton, Morgan State, UMES, Coppin State, and my school, Bowie State. The link above is about Under Armour's VP of Global Marketing. She is the creator of the I Will moniker for UA and is a Howard grad and former volleyball player for HU. Grambling State and North Carolina A&T are projected to resign with Nike and Jordan after a 10 year hiatus. Tennessee State is already an Adidas school while, Alabama A&M may resign back with them. Also, I have some info about Bethune-Cookman involving unmarked gold jerseys and pants worn during the Florida Classic and the redesign of their logos (which they may or may not have got permission from Jaguars owner Amir Khan for likeness of the "new" wildcat logo.). I tagged Chris Creamer on Twitter when the new logos were unveiled mid-game and he did some investigating of his own. I have copies of the logo that the athletic department tried to erase on social media. I'll make another post about this situation later on.
  13. In motion on TV, the pants stripes look purple completely. I would have thought the Ravens would use purple pants before using gold but Baltimore City's flag is black and gold too. *shrug*
