  1. So I started to make an AeroSwift template when it was unveiled, and I didn't have enough resources to complete it at the time, so I moved on, worked on other things and now, in the the biggest basketball month of the year, I finally have a template. It will be an .ai file and I'm still debating on a release right away. But in the meantime, and to make sure that I worked out all the bugs, I decided to roll in a Sweet 16 concept thread with it. First things first, here's the template. And starting off the concepts is the Wisconsin/Florida matchup: Wisconsin's newish look doesn't change a whole lot with the move to the template. Biggest difference is the leg stripes wrap around the legs this time. So I do not like Florida's current uniforms, the panel design just isn't doing it for me, so I mixed the HyperElite Disruption uniforms with the sublimated gator pattern, and the stripe pattern from the 2013 uniforms and you get the above result. I know I'm a day late dollar short for the whole set of games, but I still plan on getting through them all to the finals. C&C welcome!!
  2. Hello All As many of you are well aware, Adidas releases postseason jerseys for some of their teams to wear in tournaments. Nike does not do this, so I decided to try my hand at this idea. I have 12 teams that I will be doing jerseys for, and if those turn out well, I may take some requests for teams from the NCAA tournament. Without further ado, here are the first two sets, North Carolina and Butler. NORTH CAROLINA: For the Tar Heels, I've always thought that navy blue would be better than black. So here it is. A navy jersey with their Carolina blue as the accent color. Argyle pattern remains on the shorts, and the word mark is a baseball word mark that I thought worked well for these jerseys. BUTLER: For the Bulldogs, I focused on the aspect that they are Indianapolis' big team. The Indy skyline appears on the jersey, and the flag of the city is the shorts design. Hope you all like these, and of course C&C is appreciated! Thanks for looking.
  3. Instead of making an 'unique' bracket for March Madness I decided to give a theme based on popular culture from the past year. Enter Stranger Things. All logos were used in 1983 which is the year of season 1. I took the time to research each school in advance by going through this website, digitized yearbooks, youtube games, and google searching. I believe this is about 96% accurate to 1983. "In reality NC State defeated Houston as a Cinderella team. That game is considered to be in the Top 5 of greatest finishes in the NCAA Tournament. The Final Four was hosted in Albuquerque, New Mexico and the tournament consisted of 52 teams. In the Upside Down, the tournament expanded to 68 teams and neither NC State or Houston qualified. How will the tournament fare this year? Will we see stranger things happen in March?"
  4. It's named "CCSLC Forum Brackets", and the password is "ccslcforum". I didn't put a year in the name of the group because I wanted it to be one that everyone can rejoin every year without it having the previous year in the title. If you are interested in joining, please post that here so that we know who is playing. If you decide to play, please name the bracket with your CCSLC usersname (you don't have to rename your username) so that we know which brackets are associated with which people. ONLY one bracket per person per group. Same group name and password for the following sites... ESPN Group CBS Sports Group Yahoo! Group NCAA March Madness Group Because the ESPN group gets a better showing, I encourage everyone to join that one. If there isn't a good showing in the other groups this year, they will likely not be continued in following years. 2016 EDIT: All the groups above except for the NCAA March Madness group were reactivated. I had to make a new group for the NCAA March Madness group because the NCAA site doesn't save groups from previous years. All the links above should work for this year. The Sports Illustrated group and Fox Sports group from last year (2015) were removed because of lack of people. New for this year (2016), here's an ESPN Group for the women's basketball tournament... ESPN Group (Women's Tournament) ESPN Second Chance (Restart Bracket at Sweet 16) ESPN Second Chance Group 2017 EDIT: All the groups from 2016 are back and the links should work. Again, I encourage everyone to join the ESPN one because it gets the best participation. The Second Chance group will be reactivated once ESPN has it up again.
  5. For March Madness I am making a themed bracket based on Stranger Things. The year is 1983 and all of the the logos for March Madness will be from 1983. However I am having issues finding what the Belmont Rebels look like. FYI Belmont changed their name in 1995 to the Bruins. I may share the bracket if there's interest.
  6. Hey Creamers, Now that the NCAA Tourney is over and everyone has a weeks before the NBA Playoffs start, I think it would be fun to explore which school has the best ALL-TIME roster. ESPN.com Page 2 did Something similar 10 years ago, however my seeding is based on how each school has done in the NCAA tourney since its inception. Before unveil the bracket, here is my methodology to create it: If a team made the tourney, they got 1 point for that year. If a team won the Nat'l Championship, they got 64 points. If they finished in 2nd, they 32 points. Then 16, 8, 4, 2. Play-in game wins didn't count for additional points. I've attached the spreadsheet I used to calculate each school's ranking. Before reviling the 68-team field, here were the last four schools out: Pennsylvania, Colorado, Iowa State & NYU. As I said before this is a 68-team field, so here is the First Four: West Region: Wichita State v. USC Midwest Region: Missouri v. Western Kentucky South Region: Xavier v. Florida State East Region: Providence v. Boston College Here's the West Region: #1 UCLA v. (Wichita or USC) #8 California v. #9 Stanford #5 Arizona v. #12 UTEP #4 Georgetown v. #13 Bradley #6 Utah v. #11 Holy Cross #3 Michigan v. #14 Oregon State #7 Kansas State v. #10 Oregon #2 Connecticut v. #15 St. Joseph's Here's the Midwest (who would play the West Region winner in the Final Four): #1 Duke v. (Mizzou or Western KY) #8 UNLV v. #9 Notre Dame #5 Arkansas v. #12 Wyoming #4 Oklahoma State v. #13 DePaul #6 Marquette v. #11 West Virginia #3 Michigan State v. #14 Pittsburgh #7 Wisconsin v. #10 Purdue #2 Kansas v. #15 Loyola-Chicago The South Region: #1 Kentucky v. (Xavier or Florida St) #8 Memphis v. #9 Texas #5 Florida v. #12 Butler #4 Cincinnati v. #13 Georgia Tech #6 San Francisco v. #11 LSU #3 Villanova v. #14 Dartmouth #7 Maryland v. #10 Iowa #2 Louisville v. #15 Baylor The East Region: #1 North Carolina v. (Providence or BC) #8 Houston v. #9 St. John's #5 NC State v. #12 Virginia #4 Syracuse v. #13 Wake Forest #6 Oklahoma v. #11 Temple #3 Ohio State v. #14 CCNY #7 Illinois v. #10 LaSalle #2 Indiana v. #15 Dayton --------------- In the next few days, I'm put up a poll or something to determine a champion, but I think this is a good starting Alltime.xlsx
  7. One thing I pride myself in is my ability to pick a bracket. I always have the ability to sniff out that one cinderella team that goes on an upset run. Remember FGCU/Dunk City? I picked them to go to the Sweet 16. Literally. It was because teal was like totes, my fave color, so naturally, I picked them because they wore teal, not because I sniffed them out. But that triggered some sort of upset gene in me to something. UAB over ISU? Picked it. GSU over Baylor? Picked it. So that got me thinking, what MEGA UPSETS have you picked, and not a 9 over an 8, something big!
  8. The USA Today Preseason Coaches poll has been released, which marks the unofficial start to the 2014-15 College Basketball season! Rankings: 1. Kentucky 2. Arizona 3. Duke 4. Wisconsin 5. Kansas 6. North Carolina 7. Florida 8. Virginia 9. Louisville 10. Texas 11. Wichita State 12. Vilanova 13. Gonzaga 14. Iowa State 15. UConn 16. VCU 17. San Diego State 18. Michigan State 19. Oklahoma 20. Ohio State 21. Nebraska 22. SMU 23. Michigan 24. Syracuse 25. Iowa .... Yeah, we know; this is probably the most useless preseason ranking ever invented. However, it still gives us some guidance as to who will be competitive for majority of the season. Anyone have any predictions? I believe Kentucky, Virginia, and Texas will be out of the Top 25 by the time conference tournaments roll around, while the ACC, Big Ten, and Big XII will be competing for top conference in the country. But we all know someone like UCONN will end up winning the whole thing.
  9. I was looking through my twitter feed, and I came across a link to a petition to get the NCAA to change the court designs for the Big Dance (Sign it here). Every game until the Final Four is played on the same boring generic court design, so I decided, why not just sign the petition, but give the NCAA some better things to work with. Some of the elements of my court are the same, such as the baseline black with blue words, the ribbon, and the light blue circle. But I feel like this look is a little bit better than what the NCAA is sadly using now, as they have been for several years. I also came up with the opposite of the NCAA's current design, the busiest design the NCAA could ever come up with. Look at it if you dare C&C is always appreciated. Might try and design a Sweet 16/Elite 8 logo while I have some down time this week. I will also try to do a court for the First Four, since that actually has its own logo.
  10. With March Madness starting in just over a week, I figured it was time to start a group for brackets. I just started one on ESPN for all CCSLC members. The name of the group is "CCSLC Brackets 2014" and the password for the group is "ccslc2014." If you are interested in joining, please post that here so that we know who is playing. If you decide to play, please name the bracket with your CCSLC username so that we know which brackets are associated with which people.

  11. Gotta love marketing speak: "To evoke team unity and spirit, Made in March uniforms feature the Wolverines team name across the chest". Looks as if they're mainly just trying to show off Adidas tech, literally highlighting some of it with maize. Press release here. EDIT: Rest of the uniforms here.
  12. With the First Four/Round One complete, I can now present you with the 2014 NCAA Tournament Bracket Wallpaper. This year I had a bit more time to work on it, and was able to make it more High Quality (hopefully). Here it is: Updated: April 5,: Final Four. Other Sizes (Sweet Sixteen): 2880x1620 (Original Size) 1920x1080 1680x1050 1440x810 1280x720 Round 3 (Round of 32): Full Size Second Round (Round of 64): Sizes: 2880x1620 (Original Size) 1920x1080 1440x810 1280x720
  13. Not sure this is the right section of the forum, but since their marketing department obviously cooked these up to tie into March Madness I figured they might of interest. http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2014/03/vote-for-the-best-disney-attraction-during-our-march-magic-challenge/ There are a couple that aren't that bad.
  14. Backstory: I had a really crappy job with a ton of downtime, so my co-workers and I came up with a giant tournament bracket of totally random entities. To give you an idea of just HOW random, the tourney championship matchup was Optimus Prime vs. Bounty Paper Towels. The Basically a Sports Show podcast guys adopted this idea and we've decided to run with it. We each came up with 16-"team" regions and during this week's show we deduced winners to the opening rounds. This is where we NEED your votes! Pick winners of round 2 matchups, some of which are pretty intense, and we'll discuss your choices during next week's show. Without further ado here are the results from round 1. Please choose winners from the secound round matchups with included reasoning. The stupider and more absurd the better.
  15. Yesterday during theology, my teacher (a Creighton alumni) broke out all her Blue Jays gear for the tournament. Looking at these logos made me realize, the Jays need an update. So I sketched a logo (similar to Toronto's, I KNOW). I put it on paint and here is my progress so far, I want to make a full body Jay but I can't seem to find out how without making it look awkward.
