    Southeastern Conference Super Expansion

    Okay, so it seems I've caught the college football fever a tad early this summer, and I've had the concept in mind for some years now, so I decided to run with it (finally). My idea comes from the ever popular idea of super conferences in college athletics. You've heard it all before I'm sure, sixteen schools, four divisions, the whole nine. Personally, I value regional location for conference affiliation over the money, so however unrealistic it is for some schools to be in certain conferences monetarily, this is the time where I point out it's my concept ?. Uniform updates will follow with all. First up will be the Southeastern Conference, being Mississippi native for my entire life and a graduate of Ole Miss I'm somewhat partial to the SEC. So here goes. The Southeastern Conference will have a centralized location and headquarters in the mecca of the South, and one of my favorite (and possibly future home of) Atlanta, Georgia. This includes location for all championship matchups and tournaments, meaning not only the SEC Championship Football Game, but for the purpose of this concept the Basketball and Baseball Tournaments. Atlanta is more than capable of hosting such events with a plethora of hotels, metro areas, and state of the art facilities, two of which are completed and brand new (Mercedes Benz Stadium - SEC Football Championship, SunTrust Park - SEC Baseball Tournament), and one of which is undergoing renovations currently (Philips Arena - SEC Basketball Tournament). This brings us to the member institutions and how they will be divided up. My vision for the SEC has the conference leaving the Big 12 footprint of Texas and Missouri, and instead focusing on states already within the geographic footprint of the "current South," including the state of North Carolina (where I believe the SEC Network is currently located). There is also a heavy emphasis on developing and continuing in-state rivalries, as well as historic rivalries, in this concept. As I said earlier in the post, there will be four divisions. They are as follows: The SEC East, The SEC North, The SEC South, The SEC West, giving us a total map look as follows. I tried to split these up geographically as best I could. Here are Division Specifics: The SEC East: - Clemson University. Location: Clemson, South Carolina. Mascot: Tigers. Colors: Purple, Orange, White. ~110 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - University of Georgia. Location: Athens, Georgia. Mascot: Bulldogs. Colors: Red, Black, White. ~59 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Georgia Tech University. Location: Atlanta, Georgia. Mascot: Yellow Jackets. Colors: Old Gold, Navy, White. 1.8 Miles from Downtown Atlanta, GA. - University of South Carolina. Location: Columbia, South Carolina. Mascot: Gamecocks. Colors: Garnet, Black, White. ~195 Miles from Atlanta, GA. The SEC North: - University of Kentucky. Location: Lexington, Kentucky. Mascot: Wildcats. Colors: Royal Blue, White, Silver. ~296 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Location: Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Mascot: Tar Heels. Colors: Carolina Blue, White, Navy. ~338 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Location: Knoxville, Tennessee. Mascot: Volunteers. Colors: Orange, White, Smokey Grey. ~157 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Vanderbilt University. Location: Nashville, Tennessee. Mascot: Commodores. Colors: Black, Vegas Gold, White. ~216 Miles from Atlanta, GA. The SEC South: - University of Alabama. Location: Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Mascot: Crimson Tide. Colors: Crimson, White, Grey. ~186 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Auburn University. Location: Auburn, Alabama. Mascot: Tigers. Colors: Navy, Orange (Auburn), White. ~115 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - University of Florida. Location: Gainesville, Florida. Mascot: Gators. Colors: Royal Blue, Orange, White. ~310 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Florida State University. Location: Tallahassee, Florida. Mascot: Seminoles. Colors: Garnet, Vegas Gold, White. ~230 Miles from Atlanta, GA. The SEC West: - University of Arkansas. Location: Fayetteville, Arkansas. Mascot: Razorbacks. Colors: Cardinal, White, Black. ~576 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Louisiana State University. Location: Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Mascot: Tigers. Colors: Purple, Athletic Gold, White. ~460 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - University of Mississippi. Location: Oxford, Mississippi. Mascot: Rebels. Colors: Navy, Red, White. ~300 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Mississippi State University. Location: Starkville, Mississippi. Mascot: Bulldogs. Colors: Maroon, White, Grey. ~256 Miles from Atlanta, GA. I do plan to write a post for each school as to why they are in the SEC (if they aren't a current or founding member), what makes them a good fit, and what they bring to the table for the conference, the rivalries, and the tradition. I will also note that this concept (when it comes to uniforms) will put huge emphasis on uniformity of design across word marks, scripts, logos, and sports. In other words, a school is it's brand, and that brand and it's elements will be seen across all three of the big sports in their uniforms, fields, courts, etc. C&C please! Like I said, not perfect realistically or logistically, but what my SEC would be in a Super Conference era, perfect HuntTheJones world!

    SEC Baseball ~ Football Mashup

    The concept is basically this: SEC Baseball uniforms as an SEC Football Uniform. First up, Ole Miss: Just for fun.
  3. Back in the original themed days, I generally posted rather rudimentary headers, but they did their jobs of showing the college uniforms being used as a base. Having not bothered with one in the last post because I assume most people here know what Texas' uniforms look like, I realized it was also something of an accidental callback to the very first C2P post, which also lacked a header, which I introduced in the followup post. So for the second post of what is something of a reboot, I bring back the infographic, such that it is, and decided to make it a bit less rudimentary by channeling one of my favorite football card sets: 1990 NFL Pro Set. Quarterbacking. Not everybody's cut out for it. If all you needed was the ability to chuck it from LA to NY, Jeff George would somehow still be playing. If I didn't prefer to do these in fours, there'd be more, but anyway...in commemoration of those who couldn't live up to the hype... Beginning with THE wack QB of the 90s, the inimitable Ryan Leaf Some logos I've generally avoided due to either difficulty or awkwardness in potential switches. If you recall my Junior Seau tribute, I did a terrible job regarding USC and the Chargers. Turned out the answer was in the subtle approach, much like what I did in the Earl Campbell set. Washington State doesn't have a full-bodied cougar of the sort that would substitute for the lightning bolt...but they do have a script logo that worked just as well, simply giving it a crimson/gray outline while using a single outline for the bolt. Used the charger horse shield as a sleeve logo for the Bolts. The first of two USC guys, the dance machine known as Matt Leinart I've grown to hate the Cards' template, but that's not really here or there. A shame its true soulmate is Pitt's ugly rock panther and not the redbird it was intended to complement. Anyway, the unofficial catch phrase of College to Pro rears its head via the Cards uniform: These Things HappenTM Mr. Buttfumble himself, the Sanchize I've done a Jets-style USC before, but decided to put together a different mock-Jets oval for SC this time out. As the Jets don't have anything like SC's trojan head, I took the meat and potatoes out of the oval. Finally, the 2000s' wack QB, Jamarcus Russell Return of another C2P favorite, the mock Raider shield...and I may have slightly botched the arc on the Raiders side. And I didn't notice until now, but the Raiders wordmark partially vanished on me, so I'll be tweaking this one. Comments appreciated, requests not so much...I got a few themes in mind for the next C2P, one being the All-Name Team (guys like Earthwind Moreland, D'Brickashaw Ferguson), another being Techies (guys who went to Va Tech, La Tech, GT, Texas Tech, et al), another giving some love to kickers and punters, and then I have a few "Wrong Uniform" guys in mind (like Johnny U on the Bolts or LaDainian Tomlinson with the Jets). In actuality, I have a list of bad running backs I have in mind too, but I don't wanna do Wack Xs too soon after Wack QBs.

    LSU Basketball Tweaks

    Hey guys, First time posting a new concept. I've just joined officially, but I've lurked around for years. Just a couple stabs at updating what LSU wears currently. I wanted my first to be something I knew (LSU, obviously) and also something that would be a challenge to update without giving up the equity LSU already has in their looks. The template I used I found on here, but I can't seem to locate the link to it now for reference. Will do when I find it with an update. This is LSU's current look. Thanks!
  5. With the uniform craze over the last couple of years only continuing to grow more and more ridiculous, the SEC has prided itself (for the most part) in maintaining a rather traditional feel with their respected universities. I'd like to go even a step further and get these teams back to the root of their design. A lot of the changes were made with tradition in mind, adding elements that used to be commonplace for these institutions, while still at times allowing a pinch of the modern flare to remain. I'll go through each university in the SEC, some given a lot of change, others not so much, to get back to the basics and prove that less is more.

    Vintage LSU Logo

    I found an old vintage LSU basketball logo on a framed uniform in my boss' office. Just wanted to share and see if anyone has seen it or similar ones.
  7. See the white tiger head at center court? It's new. It has been mentioned in articles that it is an updated version of their previous tiger head logos. I haven't seen the actual logo anywhere except for this picture on their new basketball court. Anybody here know anything else about it or have any actual pictures?

    Updated LSU Helmets

    College football has started again, and I was reminded again of how LSU's helmets don't match the rest of their logos, graphics, and even colors. I am sure they keep their helmet unchanged because of their tradition, and I am sure their fan base would go apoplectic with even slight modifications to their helmet. I have lived in either Central Ohio or Alabama almost all of my life, so I understand college football fans of historic programs and their value of traditions. That being said, what I do not like is when the athletic department changes logos and graphics without messing with the helmets. I am not really a big fan of LSU's colors and logos, but they should at least have helmets that use fonts, logos, and colors that the school currently uses. Currently, the football helmet doesn't even match the football jerseys. If the script and logo on the helmet are so timeless, they would still be using the logo and font elsewhere. Here is their current design: As I said earlier, my problem is not so much with the actual design (even though I personally am not a fan), it is that it no longer matches what the rest of their athletic department looks like. In fact, the purple on the helmet doesn't match the purple on their jerseys. I think that LSU should keep their helmet design the same to appease the fan base, but they should use the font that they use in their end zones and the school's main tiger logo. So here is my suggestion: I have taken the script from their end zone and changed the tiger decal. In addition I have made their face masks and stripes the official LSU purple so that it matches their jerseys. I think that these would be small enough changes to respect tradition and keep a fan base somewhat mollified, yet give LSU a design that fits with the rest of their look. Personally, I would like for them to have a more major redesign, but I doubt that would happen. (Their white helmets with gold trim from a year or two ago were a nice upgrade.) For fun I decided to do some alternate helmets. This one uses the eye from their midfield. I think it would be used one time a season for a special game. I saw that LSU recently trademarked a new logo. I think that they are mainly using it as a small logo on polo shirts, etc. (I could be wrong), but I like it and put it on a helmet that would be quite different. I also took just the head from the previous logo and tried that. (I was dealing with a low-quality image, so it isn't very crisp.)
