  1. Vintage College Mascot Logos

    Does anyone have a better version of this logo?
  2. This has basically been a one-man quest. Although I never truly seeked out validation, I like to think I got a measure of it last year when Mississippi State decided to dress like the Patriots for their game in Foxborough. So, after a while on the sidelines, I'm back in the saddle, as... Since it's been a while, here's a refresher of the basic rules I impose on myself for these things: Pick X number of players, usually four. The main aim is to see what said players' college unis would look like in their pro styles, and vice versa. Whenever possible, only uniform styles and logos in use when the player was in college/with the NFL team in question will be used. Every now and then, a semi-original logo must be created, or an older logo put into use, to achieve what I'm aiming for. Same goes for number fonts in most cases. Throwbacks are included in this rule. I may occasionally forget a small detail or two. It happens. If a uniform that either predates or postdates a player's time at his school/team is sufficiently awesome enough, at my discretion I might waive rule #3, also known as the Woodson Exception (after Charles Woodson). I figured I'd lead off with Mr. Last Second Pass to Win the National Championship. With apologies to Metta Ron Panda, we welcome the One Tru Warier to C2P. I know one thing. The Browns' style was trickier than it has any right to be...kinda like the Lions' blue is rarer than it should be. And now we close things out with the Bald One
  3. I am making college football fields concept for you all. I know this is going to be an unpopular decision, but I will NOT be doing colored football fields. I am sticling with the traditional green. C&C is always appreciated! I am starting with the power five then moving on to the non power 5. Enjoy!
  4. When I was in my early teens, my parents bought me NCAA Football 98 for the computer. I really enjoyed the game, and it was very well-designed for the most part: 100+ schools; full-season play with rankings, major bowl games, and major awards; school fight songs; decent playbooks; something approximating logos on the helmets. It was a very good game for the late 1990s---not as good as the Football Pro series overall, but distinctly collegiate and lots of fun. Anyway, despite the overall quality, there were two details that I have since learned were wrong. One, LSU by default wears yellow jerseys over white pants at home in that game. Two, Missouri's colors are green and gold in the game instead of black and gold. (Come to think of it, I think the latter was also the case in that college hoops game for the Super Nintendo even earlier.) I was wondering: have you guys and gals noticed any similar errors in other games? (Incidentally, Football Pro 98 has the Eagles wearing kelly-green-and-gray even though they were in their second season with their current and inferior color scheme.)
  5. NCAA Football Super Series

    NCAA FBS football is thoroughly exciting both on TV and in person due to both the level of competition and the atmosphere with the crazy student's sections and the marching band among other traditions. I'm such a huge fan that I'm going to all of Western Michigan's home games this year (GO BRONCOS!!!). For this project, I'm creating another level of competition above the FCS and FBS, the FSS or Football Super Series comprised of 104 (fictional) colleges and universities just a bit bigger and better than the FBS. Each school will get uniforms and this neat little 8-bit matchup mockup (I love old-school video games) to show what combinations they'll be wearing throughout the season. For the names, I created a spreadsheet with all of the states and territories, and all of the names already taken (U of, State, Tech, A&M, Northern, etc.), and filled in the blanks. So, without further ado, here are the conferences:
  6. Another Neo-Vintage Mascot Logo Concept; this time Big Al from the University of Alabama marches on through the puny competition! This was a previous look I created for Al:
  7. Virginia Tech Hokie Bird

    Took another look at my Neo-Vintage Hokie Bird from 2014 and refreshed it! 2014: 2017: I have a GIF to highlight the differences, but it doesn't seem to work...
  8. TCU Horned Frog

    TCU has a few vintage logos, but I thought I'd take elements from them and create a neo-vintage one:

  10. Hi, everyone! After several months of not posting concepts, I'm back! This time around, I'm focusing on college football uniforms, and, just like my previous topic, these concepts were also done in Paint. The templates used here vary, depending on which fits the design. Credits to the Sports Font Database, as well as some previous CFB concepts made by the people of CCSLC, especially mbannon92. Some concepts will utilize their current uniforms and have a few tweaks, while some will be complete redesigns. Also, no Russell Athletic on this concept. I would like to know your comments and reactions from you. Here are the links (new additions are in bold): ACC Atlantic: Boston College | Clemson | Florida State | Louisville | NC State | Syracuse | Wake Forest Coastal: Duke | Georgia Tech | Miami (FL) | North Carolina | Pittsburgh | Virginia | Virginia Tech Big Ten East: Indiana | Maryland | Michigan | Michigan State | Ohio State | Penn State | Rutgers West: Illinois | Iowa | Minnesota | Nebraska | Northwestern | Purdue | Wisconsin Big 12 Baylor | Iowa State | Kansas | Kansas State | Oklahoma | Oklahoma State | TCU | Texas | Texas Tech | West Virginia Pac-12 North: California | Oregon | Oregon State | Stanford | Washington | Washington State South: Arizona | Arizona State | Colorado | UCLA | USC | Utah SEC East: Florida | Georgia | Kentucky | Missouri | South Carolina | Tennessee | Vanderbilt West: Alabama | Arkansas | Auburn | LSU | Mississippi State | Ole Miss | Texas A&M Independents Army | BYU | Liberty | New Mexico State | Notre Dame | UMass The American East: Cincinnati | Connecticut | East Carolina | Temple | UCF | USF West: Houston | Memphis | Navy | SMU | Tulane | Tulsa C-USA East: Charlotte | FAU | FIU | Marshall | Middle Tennessee | Old Dominion | Western Kentucky West: Louisiana Tech | North Texas | Rice | Southern Miss | UAB | UTEP | UTSA MAC East: Akron | Bowling Green | Buffalo | Kent State | Miami (OH) | Ohio West: Ball State | Central Michigan | Eastern Michigan | Northern Illinois | Toledo | Western Michigan Mountain West Mountain: Air Force | Boise State | Colorado State | New Mexico | Utah State | Wyoming West: Fresno State | Hawaii | Nevada | San Diego State | San Jose State | UNLV Sun Belt Appalachian State | Arkansas State | Coastal Carolina | Georgia Southern | Georgia State Louisiana-Lafayette | Louisiana-Monroe | South Alabama | Texas State | Troy
  11. Post any name/logo changes to upcoming 2016 NCAA Div I Bowl Games here. I'll start. GoDaddy Bowl becomes the Dollar General Bowl.
  12. Welcome! I am making concept uniforms for the FBS starting with the power 5! NOTICE: All teams will be sponsored by Nike, and are all dome on apps. Sorry if the quality is not the greatest. C&C is always appreciated! ACC: Boston College
  13. FBS Concept Uniforms

    Over time, I have been working on concept uniforms for all 130 FBS football teams. I did the universities that are currently planning on staying or joining the FBS level. My designs were intended to be very unique and creative. I have had a lot of fun during this designing process while creating new uniform ideas. I will start uploading the uniforms for each team in alphabetical order. Let me know what you guys think and which ones are your favorites. Hope you enjoy!
  14. Texas Tech Concept

    Alright, I think the Red Raiders could go for an identity refresh/upgrade. Their recent uniforms were an upgrade in my opinion from the previous UnderArmour looks that we have rolled out but still left something to be desired and IMO have aged greatly. The pants have been tweaked slightly to remove the "Guns Up" text and the stripes are modified a little as well. The jerseys now feature contrasting TV numbers on the shoulder tops (inspired by the Ohio State national championship unis), and a sublimated pattern on the sleeve caps. This pattern is an homage to those found on the shoulders of the suits that Spanish Matadors wore (this is what the school's original mascot was, and elements can still be found on the masked rider mascot). I also think the "Double T" logo looks better flat - but our stadium upgrade included a beveled logo on the scoreboard that was solid red which is a nice combination of simple and modern over the current look. So enough of all that, here are the goods. C&C welcome. I've put together some different combinations the team could wear, as well as a throwback set. Home & Road Color Rush Home Alts (white helmet) Red Alts (red helmet) Throwback
  15. Author's Notes: Teams will be revealed as the series progresses, schools discussed in the history portion will replace generic references upon reveal. I also plan to include more graphics in this section as teams are revealed. THE HISTORY The year is 2011. West Virginia has just completed an agreement to move to the Big 12, and both Pittsburgh and Syracuse challenged their commitments to the Big East. In order to reduce the impact of impending loss of teams, the Big East began searching for replacements. Initially, the league attempted to poach teams from two smaller, but well-respected conferences, the New England Eight and the Great Appalachian Athletic Conference. Immediately, the conference lured Norfolk College, who had risen to prominence after three straight FBS top 25 finishes and finished the 2009 season 11-1, narrowly missing a BCS Bowl. Noticing the Big East’s desperation and the beginning of the Super Conference trend, NE8 commissioner Arnold Gardner hatched a plan to keep his conference together. Gardner contacted GAAC commissioner Ron B. Lalonde and pitched the formation of a new super conference that would bring together the 8 teams from the NE8 and the CAAC’s remaining six schools. With the promise of renewed stability, national prominence, and the development of a conference television network, the 14 schools agreed to form the New England/Mid-Atlantic Conference (NEMAC), scheduled to form starting in 2013 to coincide with the departure of Norfolk College. Due to these new revelations, Norfolk filed a lawsuit to prevent the merger if not allowed to remain. However, because discussions of a merger only occurred after Norfolk announced its plan to move, the new NEMAC conference prevailed. Suddenly, with 2 serious football title contenders, as well as several other top 25 finishers, the NEMAC was positioned to become a new power conference. This was ensured by collapse of the Big East conference several years later. Since its inception, the NEMAC has become a top national conference poised to make a run at National Championships in several sports. THE TEAMS The NEMAC consists of 14 teams located in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts (3), Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York (2), New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio (2). Divisions consist of seven teams each based geographically. The East Division consists of 7 members of the NE8 with Hale moving to the West Division to join the GAAC teams. NOTE: Divisions only exist for football. Each school is a full member, with all 14 participating in every major sport except hockey (8 schools make up the NEMAC Hockey conference). THE LOGOS The NEMAC logo is derived from a combination of elements from the NE8 and the GAAC. The logo’s main shape and mountain are homages to the shape of the original GAAC logo. The 10 stars above the logo and the italicization of the letters are derived from the NE8 logo. Finally, the primary color of each logo was used in the color scheme. Each team also wears a jersey patch featuring only the conference name. These patches will be worn in team colors upon the uniforms of all sports. First Up: Maine State University
  16. Here are my NCAA D1 basketball court concepts using DarthBrooks template. Some of the courts might be boring/traditional and some might be considered a little extreme. I have been working on these on and off for over a year and have around half the teams done. I will be posting them in alphabetical order by conference (A-10 first, WCC last). Just because I made a concept for a team doesn't mean I don't like their current court. A few things you might notice... I am a fan of two-tone courts when used by the right team (I wouldn't have two-tones with traditional schools like Indiana, Duke, UCLA, etc.). The more unique logos the school has the more I tried to incorporate them into the court. Once in a while I might use a logo in a way it wasn't intended (ex. Marquette eagle logo used on court). Some of the conference logos might be a year or 2 out of date (A-10, ACC, Big 12). I didn't include websites, twitter handles, hashtags, etc. (except for one;TCU) on the out-of-bounds area. I probably only looked up 10% of the team's current court so some might be very similar to their current court on accident. Here are links to all the posts of the courts... A-10 (1st half below, 2nd half); ACC (1st half, 2nd half); America East (1st half, 2nd half); American (1st half, 2nd half); Atlantic Sun (1st half, 2nd half); B1G (1st half, 2nd half); Big 12 (1st half, 2nd half); Big East (1st half, 2nd half); Big Sky (1st half, 2nd half); Big South (1st half, 2nd half); Big West (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 1 (1st half, 2nd half, extra); CAA (1st half, 2nd half); C-USA (1st half, 2nd half); Horizon (1st half, 2nd half); Ivy League (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 2; MAAC (1st half, 2nd half); MAC (1st half, 2nd half); MEAC (1st half, 2nd half); Missouri Valley (1st half, 2nd half); Mt West (1st half, 2nd half); NEC (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 3 (1st half, 2nd half); Ohio Valley (1st half, 2nd half); PAC-12 (1st half, 2nd half); Patriot League (1st half, 2nd half); SEC (1st half, 2nd half); Southern (1st half, 2nd half); Southland (1st half, 2nd half); Summit League (1st half, 2nd half); Sun Belt (1st half, 2nd half); SWAC (1st half, 2nd half); WAC (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 4; WCC (1st half, 2nd half); Conference Tourney Courts (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4); UPDATES Round 5; A-10 (1st half) Davidson Wildcats Dayton Flyers Duquesne Dukes Fordham Rams George Mason Patriots George Washington Colonials LaSalle Explorers
  17. some football field concepts

    For almost as long as football has existed, there have been many tries at tabletop simulations of the sport. I'm not talking about Strat-o-Matic, Paydirt and their ilk. No, what I speak of is having the whole field, and 11 little men butting heads with 11 other men. The most famous of these attempts is electric football, which seems to be something of a love/hate affair mainly because getting those little men to go where you want them to, as well as passing and kicking, are dark, arcane arts mortals were not meant to know ...and then there have been other, more obscure efforts, a number of which basically combined football with chess, though that has its own issues (queen pieces might end up being too powerful to contain, for instance). What I saw someone at Boardgame Geek do with All-Pro Football, a late 60s effort, inspired me to try my hand at at least preparing to make my own board, and at some point I'll post some of them. These fields I'm about to show you, I created with a different game, Techno Bowl, in mind. All I'll say is what I know: I think the idea has finally found its winner, and all it took was inspiration from a certain iconic NES game. Anyway, I give you a field for Rice... And in my world, the Noles bring back the white endzones...I was on the fence considering whether to have the feather on the spear or not. Finally for now, los Jefes...I have some faint memories of Arrowhead's old turf field, and also used the spear stripes from one of my older concepts in the endzones. I'll note: the original versions of my fields/boards feature grid lines, which I intend to either leave off or severely lighten for the concept versions I'll be posting here. The All-Pro fields I'll be posting, however, will be in the checkered form I intend to print them in (and I've made CFL and Arena versions as well, which I'll post later).

  19. 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.
  20. NCAA Football Uniform Concepts

    I love watching college football and I like to see how teams change their uniforms over the years. Most of those changes have been for the better but there's still some that changed for the worse or have just always been bad. In this thread I'm not going to do redesign every team's uniform. I'm only going to redesign FBS teams that I thought have bad uniforms or could use some slight changes (which is around 30 teams). I'll try to give some type of explanation for teams I didn't change at some point too. I'm not going to post these in a specific order. And just because I post only a home, away, and alternate uniform that doesn't meant helmet, jerseys, and pants can't be mixed around. Teams I have done: Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Fresno State, Georgia Tech, Hawaii, Houston, Indiana, Kansas, Louisville, Nevada, Northern Illinois, Oregon State, TCU, Tulsa, Wisconsin, Western Michigan Teams I plan on doing: UCLA, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana-Lafayette, Bowling Green, Southern Miss, North Carolina State, East Carolina, Texas-San Antonio, Texas-El Paso, UAB, North Texas, Charlotte, Akron, Kent State On to the concepts... Central Michigan Chippewas (current uniform) Home Uniform: Away Uniform: Alternate Uniform: -Normal glossy helmets -Unique pattern on shoulders and pants. The pattern might be a little too much, but I'd rather see a team try something different than use a similar template than other Adidas schools. -Added "Chippewas"/"Central Michigan" to front of jersey Up Next: EMU
  21. Hey guys, so it's been a few months since I've posted to the boards (the fault of a hard drive being completely deleted). Recently I saw a few threads that peaked my interest in creating uniforms again, specifically mgdmhl's redesigning college football thread. I tried to recover my work from my old thread but everything was deleted. So I didn't have inspiration for awhile. Fast forward a week or two and I'm watching Marquette play basketball in their new uniforms and, being the uniform enthusiast and designer I am, I wondered what they would look like on a football jersey. BOOM inspiration hit and I knew what my next project would be. I completed Marquette and wanted more so I decided to design what football uniforms would look like for colleges who don't have football teams. For some of these teams I heavily took inspiration from their basketball uniforms. I like when a school has a synonymous design throughout multiple athletic teams (think North Carolina or Wisconsin). For others I take inspiration from something in their logo or something that has to do with the school. I had this same philosophy in my old thread. I'll be unveiling teams by conferences. I have the Big East, Horizon, A10 and West Coast Conference done, except for the Adidas and Under Armour teams (I don't have a psd flat template for those brands). Here's a list of all the teams: Marquette Real template Providence Creighton Real template Xavier DePaul Seton Hall St. John's St. Louis VCU Saint Joseph's George Washington v2 George Mason St. Bonaventure Gonzaga St. Mary's UMASS Lowell UC Santa Barbara V2 Long Beach State V2 Wright State UW Milwaukee Northern Kentucky V2 Little Rock Wichita State Portland V2 College of Charleston Real template Chicago State Grand Canyon Black alternate Real template Utah Valley Pacific Boston Oakland CSU Bakersfield V2 UNC-Greensboro Real Template UTRGV UWGB Cleveland State Florida Gulf Coast V2 & Real Template Iona MARQUETTE GOLDEN EAGLES -Stripe design just like their new stripe -Blue Jersey matches blue -White b-ball jersey doesn't have any gold, so I added it -Gold is the same -Light blue b-ball jersey doesn't have any navy, so I added it. -All helmets are glossy -Socks are different colors so no "color rush" could be implemented. Except on the baby blue uniform. I think a "color rush" baby blue uniform would look great. I thought I represented the color differences well along with representing the basketball uniforms. But if not C&C is always appreciated. Also thanks to Logan Weaver for the template and thanks for looking guys and I'll have Providence up next.
  22. NIKE 2017 NCAA Alternates

    So while I'm currently working on my NIKE NBA series, I thought I'd take a little break and work on some NCAA concepts. These are just some alternates for some random NCAA teams I found interesting. Enjoy and please let me know how you like them! First round of three here with many more to come!
  23. Notre Dame Logo Update

    Recently I came across a logo I had made awhile back for a college hockey series. I wanted to post the logo itself with some recent edits made, because I kinda feel like it got shoved in the back of the project as a whole, and I'd really love to get some feedback on the logo itself. The motive for the logo was pretty simple. It's, at least for me, one of the most iconic and memorable mascot logos in all of college sports. Despite the fact that the logo is from a conceptual standpoint, pretty great, I feel like it really hasn't aged well, like many logos from its era. So, I decided to give the classic a modern tough. To put it simply, I took away a look of the extraneous details that all old logos seemed to have, streamlined the figure a bit (no more weird flat head), and made he leprechaun a bit younger looking to match. I also made the decision to add a bit more blue to the logo itself. I realize that the leprechaun is supposed to be wearing a green and yellow suit, but I felt that the increased blue better represented the more balanced use of green, blue, and yellow/gold that the university sports these days. Finally, I added a vegas gold to emulate the color the sports teams generally wear. Thanks guys! I'd love to hear your C+C!
  24. West Virginia Mountaineers football concept

    Thinking about expanding my college football concepts... here's one for WV... back to basics as usual. C and C appreciated.
  25. After the most successful 5-year run of the football program, Baylor fired head football coach Art Briles and "reassigned" university president Ken Starr after releasing findings from a report created by a independent law firm... and it's, um, not good: You can read the full independent report here. I thought this was interesting due to the recent revelations of the Penn State scandal and the discussions that came of it. One of the common "defenses" used by Penn State supporters at the time was that "too much time had passed, regimes had changed, don't punish the people that had no part in it, etc." Well, that argument is out the window for this situation at Baylor. In the Penn State thread, I argued at the time (and in hindsight) that Penn State should have received the death penalty for what happened under the watch of the Cult of Paterno. In this scenario now playing out at Baylor and if the findings are indeed true (they are), I think the death penalty should be given to the Bears as well. It shows a repeated and fundamental lack of institutional control, where success on the football field has eclipsed even basic human decency and rights. Vacating scholarships, wins, or practice time isn't going to miraculously fix the distorted value systems at play within the athletic department and administration where the football program is more important than the safety and treatment of your female athletes and students. That is ass-backwards and won't be fixed with a slap on the wrist. What do you think the punishment should be for the Baylor football program?
