  1. I would go with Forkhorns. Forks is too far removed from the actual reference you are making (of a forkhorn deer) so it just sounds like you're naming a team after silverware. Spikes makes me think of baseball spikes. I would also change the Wisconsin logo from Forks to Horns.
  2. You could argue their current colors are too close to Albany, Tennessee Tech, and Western Illinois, the last of whom plays in the same football conference as UNI. The metallic gold also has some historical precedent at the school.
  3. You have some good design elements (for example, I really like the basketball logo with the flags. It's a really creative take on that sort of logo), but I don't think they all fit together into a cohesive set right now. You've got the different reds, and the slant from the wordmark and the flags also do not match. I'm not entirely convinced that the wordmark fits with the style of the logo (as much as I enjoy that font), and it is not integrated into the primary; it just looks tacked on. Working on creating a coherent identity where all of the design elements relate to one another would be an excellent way to improve your work here.
  4. I think the fans of the Timberwolves and Minnesotans should get to determine whether it's a thing rather than some graphic designers in Mississippi. That's all I'm going to say about it in the interest of not hijacking this thread.
  5. Yeah, Sota's not a thing.

    You've got way too many colors in that logo. Adding yellow to this scheme makes them look too similar to Real Salt Lake. Not sure if you need that second shade of blue either.
  7. I personally think the script looks better with the tail. This would be a tremendous upgrade, however.
  8. College of Charleston looks so classy with the gold helmets. Great work
  9. This is 100% the correct move to make. No complaints
  10. That away jersey is amazing. Great job. I'm not sure you need Chief Seattle on the socks, however. It would probably look cleaner without it.
  11. For the size of the baseball in your concept, I think it needs more detailed stitching. I understand not wanting to make it so detailed that it would be difficult to reproduce at smaller sizes, but it seems large enough that the stitching at smaller sizes shouldn't be affected. As it stands now, it looks too much like a tennis ball. I also think changing the color of Colorado from purple to black would achieve a greater color balance in the logo. I saw you want to incorporate purple more heavily into their identity though, which is the correct thing to do, so I would have to see the uniforms (if you are making any) and to what extent you are phasing out the black to be sure that it's the right call. One more minor gripe: my eye is drawn to the right leg of the R and that weird little curve in the bottom left corner. It seems to throw off the flow of the letter, so maybe making that a 90 degree angle instead might be better.
  12. For Northern Kentucky, the sleeve caps are a neat idea in theory, but it just looks messy in its application. The numbers mix in too much with the swords and would be hard to read. It also makes the number outlines on the home jersey inconsistent. Also, I see you used silver in the helmet logo but nowhere else in the uniform. Some silver would create a more cohesive look and help distinguish NKU from the other black and yellow teams.
  13. The gray shadow combined with the white letters creates an effect that makes the letters look blurry. I can only look at the logos for so long without needing a break for my eyes. Also, this may be my monitor, but the blue looks almost purple. Moving towards something more navy would be more inline with the America theme you want.
  14. Thanks for looking. I would definitely include a raven logo in any sort of rebrand, either as a primary or an alternate logo (I'm not sure if the BR can stand alone as the primary). Would anyone else like to comment?
  15. 1) The fleur-de-lis pattern in the side panels is entirely too much; it makes me think of a carpet. You're probably better off leaving those solid red and navy. 2) Any reason you decided to put the NOB underneath the number? It doesn't really have much precedence except for a few teams, New Orleans not among them. 3) The "wrought iron" work you did around the side panels is gorgeous.
