  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    ShockWeb is the pattern of the previous template, this one is called PrimeKnit.. The pattern is different between the two, as is the construction of the jersey.
  2. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Same general design, yes.. Same template, not even close.. Same manufacturer, negative..
  3. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    You're correct.. It's not a practice jersey.. I just mocked it up on their uniform builder..
  4. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Technically that isn't ShockWeb.. It's PrimeKnit
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    As long as the recruits put value in the Jordan brand, it will have staying power.. The kids :censored:ing LOVE it.. That's why it's on the uniforms.. It's a brand logo, not a basketball logo, and the Jordan brand is synonymous with UNC, so I have no issue with it being there.. I've seen the impact brands and logos can have on recruiting.. Adidas ShockWeb and PrimeKnit work for schools because recruits love them.. Chrome helmets work for schools because recruits love them.. I work for an Adidas school, and I personally wish all our gear could have the old Adidas trefoil "leaf" logo like Notre Dame's shamrock series jerseys did one year.. The old school "adidas originals" logo would be super popular.. It's not about looking good, it's about getting recruits.. And apparently ugly gets recruits..
  6. Lady Patriots Concept Logo

    a girl on a knee holding the ball like a "holder" would be another good semi-feminine pose to use as well
  7. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    Nike just adidased the Cavs..
  8. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    ive had this issue since the set was unvieled.. either the helmet needs to lose the stripes or the pants need to gain them (and the collar needs to be in the contrasting color as well).. i'm ok either way, but it makes no sense when the team wears blue helmet and blue pants and the argyle pattern is different.. the easiest fix would be change the helmet stripe decal, but the best fix is adjust the pants stripe.. that entire mesh panel is sublmated.. on the blue pants, the blue panel could be white with the argyle pattern and navy border printed onto it, and stitched into the pants just like the current blue panel is.. not sure how this was overlooked in the design process.. while i agree that the argyle is distinctly UNC and they 100% absolutely should have it on their uniforms, i'd go so far as to say that the pre-2013 set was the best UNC has ever looked - solely because of the argyle issue with the current set..
  9. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    The problem here is the "from day one" part.. Initially, they absolutely forced black into the identity that was completely designed without any black.. It was crude and clumsy, and the disjointed look felt like a JV team whose Varsity team recently rebranded, and the JV team ended up with a mismatch of eras crammed into one uniform.. I agree that it was bad, but I also feel like that first abomination tainted the inclusion of black for most people, especially Lions fans and those who follow the team more closely.. I don't see the Lions often, especially then when they weren't any good, so I never developed much of an opinion of the early black set until after the fact.. The more recent version was redesigned with black in mind and imo was done tastefully.. I would tweak a few things as I said, but I don't think it was bad..

    I agree with this.. But I would also say that in a similar fashion, when they're playing on the tube, the beautiful blue/gray color scheme was still very apparent, even with the black elements they had previously.. My issues are with those finer details, because if you're going to include them, include them in the right ways, otherwise, leave them out to avoid muddying up the uniform.. The new look would be improved with a few tweaks (in no particular order).. 1. Either remove white completely (apart from away jersey obviously), or include it in the striping pattern in the current "negative space" 2. Remove the dark gray or use it more.. Removing it in favor of white numbers/gray outline (as many of us initially thought we were seeing when the uniforms were unveiled) would be a decent step 3. Move LIONS wordmark back to chest (very small) or remove completely, and move WCF logo back to chest patch or to a helmet decal to de-clutter the sleeve stripes 4. The above would likely fix the helmet issues, but a blue facemask is always an option, and could be an improvement as well.. I actually really like the direction of the new set, it just wasn't executed as well as it should've been.. I also think the previous set gets a lot of undue hate.. Sure, it needed a couple tweaks as well, but it was still serviceable - and with the proper tweaks (helmet/pants stripe for starters), could've actually been pretty darn good, despite having black..

    If paired with the Carolina blue helmet and pants, there would still be plenty of the Carolina blue.. It's only a part of the uniform (like ole miss jerseys only having 1 of the school's colors), and should be as strong within the entire uniform set as possible.. Throw a Carolina blue collar and cuffs on it, and it's about the best possible look for them.. At least imo

    These names have been in place for at least a couple seasons already.. They should definitely flip the light blue and white on the numbers..
  13. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    I don't think the word "tremendous" can be used to accurately describe any part of the new uniform (except how tremendously stupid and ridiculous the WCF logo on the sleeve stripe is).. For a non-lions fan, the previous set wasn't horrible.. It actually tastefully incorporated the black that was crudely forced into the identity in the early 2000's, and was a couple tweaks away from being a pretty solid modern look.. For the Lions purists, I understand the desire to stick to only blue and silver as much as possible, and with the age and tenure of the franchise, I certainly agree that a more traditional look is most appropriate, but the previous set wasn't bad - it just wasn't great.. And honestly, I don't know that I'd call the new set much of an upgrade at all.. The way white is limited, but not excluded is awkward.. The random and minimal inclusion of the dark gray is awkward.. The silver helmet/silver mask combo is very non-lions imo, and forces too much of the visual responsibility to the logo and stripes, which don't exactly match, so that's awkward.. The asymmetrical sleeve striping is awkward in and of itself, and to top it all off, the absolutely horrible WCF logo is awkwardly included into the uniform's striping pattern instead of a tasteful patch or decal, and consists of a horizontal set of initials running within the stripe, on top of two vertical stripes that awkwardly cross the sleeve stripes - and they don't even cross in a sensible way - they awkwardly end in a Browns-chest-stripe manner that is rather distracting.. I really like the general direction of this set, but the finer details of it leave it feeling.. Well, a bit awkward..
  14. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    Apart from the side panels, the Bengals set is relatively restrained.. The Cardinals on the other hand...

    Every time I see them, I hate William Ford and the Ford family more and more..
