  1. Bowl Game Wallpapers

    I made some wallpaper edits on Adobe Photoshop for every bowl game this season. I used the wordmark logos for every except Ohio State & Wisconsin I downloaded fonts and made their wordmark logo. I like to be as accurate as possible with my helmets so if anyone notices I used the wrong helmet design for any teams please let me know. I will update all helmets if teams announce a different helmet design then the one I uploaded. Any kind of feedback is helpful! http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Alamo_Bowl.jpg.html -Alamo Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Taxslayer_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Taxslayer Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/QuickLane_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Quicklane Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Sugar_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Sugar Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Rose_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Rose Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Peach_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Peach Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/NewOrleans_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -New Orleans Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Outback_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -OutbackBowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/NewMexico_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -New Mexico Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Military_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Military Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/MusicCity_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Music City Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/LasVegas_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Las Vegas Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Liberty_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Liberty Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Independence_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Independence Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Holiday_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Holiday Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Hawaii_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Hawaii Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/HeartofDallas_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Heart of Dallas Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/FosterFarms_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Foster Farms Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Frisco_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Frisco Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Fiesta_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Fiesta Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/DollarGeneral_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Dollar General Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/FamousIdahoPotato_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Famous Idaho Potato Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Cure_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Cure Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/CampingWorld_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Camping World Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Citrus_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Citrus Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Cotton_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Cotton Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Camellia_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Camellia Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Cactus_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Cactus Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/BocaRaton_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Boca Raton Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Birmingham_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Birmingham Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Bahamas_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Bahamas Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Belk_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Belk Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/ArmedForces_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Armed Forces Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Arizona_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Arizona Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Texas_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Texas Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Sun_Bowl.jpg.html?o=1 -Sun Bowl
  2. Army Navy is first, because Army Navy is awesome. More to come, give the helmet you want, if you request. First come, first serve, unless i've already made that helmet. Edit: Decided it would make most sense to add the new ones to this first post.
  3. Hi, everyone! As I promised from my FBS topic, I present to you my concept uniforms for NCAA Division I FCS schools. Like the ones in my previous topic, templates and manufacturers may vary. I'll only use Adidas, Nike, and Under Armour templates, and so, I'll choose what is best for those currently outfitted by Russell, Reebok, or New Balance. The teams that will be included here are the ones in the FCS lineup after the year 2020, which means that North Alabama (Big South) and Idaho (Big Sky) will be included here. I would like to know your comments and reactions from you. Here are the links (new additions are in bold): Big Sky Cal Poly | Eastern Washington | Idaho | Idaho State | Montana | Montana State | Northern Arizona Northern Colorado | Portland State | Sacramento State | Southern Utah | UC Davis | Weber State Big South Campbell | Charleston Southern | Gardner-Webb | Hampton | Kennesaw State | Monmouth | North Alabama CAA Albany | Delaware | Elon | James Madison | Maine | New Hampshire Rhode Island | Richmond | Stony Brook | Towson | Villanova | William & Mary
  4. Illini logo mistakes

    I am a huge Illini fan and I love Chief Illiniwek but when I saw the Illinois Fighting Illini page, I noticed something weird, There is no primary logo from 1957-1988 and the Chief logo was retired in 2007, so how could it be a secondary logo till 2013... I am baffled and hoping that maybe someone can fix those mistakes.
  5. The College Football Playoff, despite being infinitely better than the BCS, is still flawed. I feel that 4 teams is insufficient, and that the whole bowl system is just a mess. That being said, I have come up with a fix. In this thread, I will post weekly brackets that would line-up with this system (with tweaks I think would happen), and when the final rankings come out, all 16 teams' uniforms for the playoff. So, without further ado, here is my idea for a 16-team playoff field. 1. FBS teams play a 10-game, 11-week regular season schedule, including 1 bye week. (weeks 1-11; Aug, 26-Nov. 4) Schedule includes 6-8 conference games, and 2-4 non-conference FBS games. FBS teams will no longer be allowed to play FCS teams (avoids many strength of schedule ?'s). Week 12 = nationwide bye week/ Army-Navy game (Nov. 11) Week 13 = conference championship games, Selection Sunday (Nov. 16-19) 2. Postseason - Power-5 conference champions receive automatic bid, but do not get home-field or higher seeds. Committee will still select wild cards and seed teams. Week 14 = Playoff BYE; start group-of-5 bowl games. (Nov. 20-30) Week 15 = Playoff round 1; 8 games played at higher seed's home field. (Nov. 30, Dec. 1-2). Week 16 = Playoff round 2; 4 games played as Rose, Sugar, Orange, and Fiesta Bowls (could rotate every year for #1 ovr. seeds, locations, bowls, etc.); Group-of-5 and Power-5 non-playoff bowl games during week, Playoff games Friday night and Saturday (Dec. 4-9) Week 17 = Playoff BYE; Rd. 1 loser bowl games start and Power-5 non-playoff bowl games continue/finish. (December 11-22) Week 18 = Playoff round 3; 2 games played at neutral sites (2018 in Indy, Houston; rotate every year.) (Dec. 23) Week 19 = Playoff BYE; playoff round 2 loser bowls start and finish (Dec. 26- Jan.1) Note: Round 3 losers do not get extra bowl games since they played in the Final 4. Week 20 = Playoff Championship (2018 in Atlanta, rotate every year). (January 8) Uhhhh, edit: I can't figure out how to post an image directly from my computer. I've posted on this before and was able to browse my files, is that not possible anymore? It's been a while since I've posted. Sorry, this is embarassing.
  6. 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
  7. 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!
  8. 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:
  9. 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. 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...
  11. 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:
  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. 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!
  16. 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!
  17. 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.

  19. 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).
  20. Here is the new and improved NCAA Basketball Uniform Database! All courts are made by And 1 Designs. I just do the uniforms. I am doing the top 7 in each of the top 6 conferences. Except the SEC will have the top 5 wth 2 being from the American. Same with the PAC 12 with 2 being from the WCC. This are the the first 4 in the Big East. Enjoy!
  21. 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!!
  22. 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.
  23. 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?"
  24. Updated 3/31: Elite 8 Complete/Final Four Set Elite 8 Complete/Final Four Set: First Four: On Off Sweet 16 Complete: First Four On First Four Off Round of 32 Complete: First Four On First Four Off Round of 64 Complete: First Four On First Four Off First Four Round of 64 with First Four off Release (3840x2160) A new year, a new theme and look. Info after the photo. - A clean look, optimized for larger, hopefully easier to read school/team name and overall record text. - Tournament Title in white and black trim, with an orange shadow - Round of 64 teams will have smaller logos than in last years first round. In addition, Round of 64 team records will be replaced with that Team's game score. - Round of 32 through the Elite Eight features a slightly smaller pod, but a more vertical logo. Above the divider will be the school name, and below will be the Team's game score. - Round of 32 through the Elite Eight orange end caps will be changed to the team's color once they advance. - The Final Four, black team pod with orange gradient trim. - National Championship matchup features black team pods with gold gradient trim. Note: The "First Games" are at the bottom center of the bracket, but may be covered by a app dock or other apps. I've turned on dock hiding and that fixes the issue. But once the First Four is complete, I'll remove the first four pods for a cleaner bracket. C&C: I thought about lightening the background, as it's a little darker here than I anticipated, then again it might just be the perfectionist in me.
