    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!
  2. The Super Bowl edition didn't get as much response as I would've liked, and this isn't gonna be bigger than Star Wars...or the Batman-Superman movie...or that thing Taco Bell's been hyping the whole month...or even James Harden's beard. Still, I figure this is one of my better C2P outputs. So without further ado... I kick this outing off with arguably the greatest outside 'backer ever, the original LT. TBH, there was a second design I was considering, but I have a bit of an aversion to making the Giants resemble the Cowboys, so plain sleeves it was. The Giants helmet is a bit lighter than I meant it to be (for you kiddies out there, back in the day, royal blue teams generally either settled for navy helmets [Rams, Giants] or wore this weird blue shade that matched nothing else [Broncos, Ole Miss]...to put this in perspective, plastic helmets largely replaced leather in the early 50s. The Giants wore navy helmets until 2000. Roughly 50 years, folks.) Admittedly anachronistic, but an NYG that was closer to what Carolina was using for its UNC actually would've looked somewhat awkward, as the N and Y would overlap, but the G would've been floating (or I could've attained an overlap, but then the diagonal setup would've been impossible), so I tweaked the lowercase ny and made a matching g for the occasion. The man sitting on the most sacks ever, Bills great Bruce Smith...if not for the fact that there's just no good monogram equivalent I could think up on the Bills side for either the current VT or the vintage TV, the Va Tech helmet would've used the fighting gobbler like I'd done on the Mike Vick set...and I'd strongly considered it anyway. Funny how the Bills and Giants jerseys wound up looking somewhat similar, much like their real life counterparts of the era. The late, great DT...honestly, given I've done Bama players pretty frequently, and Chiefs players a bit more recently but still posted em, the big issue here was what to do for the Bama-specific arrowhead mock. In the end, copied a clipart elephant silhouette, and there we go. Lastly, the late Minister of Defense...on the UT side, I'd considered Smokey standing over a football, which would've been meant to mimic the flying eagle (and would be awesome to see), but settled for the Davy Crockett wannabe. Also considered mimicking the wings with the Tennessee map, but figured that'd be more awkward than anything else, so a bluish-silver T with a white outline is what you see here. Which also explains the Eagles helmet having a stripe despite the wings still being there (I briefly considered making a P or using an E from their 80s wordmark, but since I went subtle with the Vols, gotta reciprocate with the Iggles). That's it, so feel free to comment.

    Jordan Brand x NCAA Women's Volleyball

    I've been attending as many of Michigan's women's volleyball home games as I can this season, for the first time ever, because one of my sisters likes to go and my dad bought her season tickets. Thanks to that chaperoning, I've become more interested in the sport, as well as (of course) the uniforms. NCAA women's volleyball already has its own design language—or at least its own templates provided by major manufacturers—and I wanted to create a concept series where I can engage with that language, adding in some outside influences that are more familiar to me. And so, with Jordan Brand making the unprecedented move of not only outfitting Michigan basketball but also football next season, I started imagining a future where Jordan Brand decided to outfit women's volleyball, starting at Michigan, but then extending to all the other schools who have Jordan Brand contract. I believe that this wouldn't be as much of a stretch as Jordan Brand in football, since volleyball is a court sport just like basketball, and the first "volleyball-specific" Nike shoes were just renamed Nike basketball shoes. Accordingly, I'm going to take design cues from these schools' men's basketball teams and reappropriate them for women's volleyball uniforms. (I'm using men's basketball uniforms and not women's because, as women's volleyball is exceedingly more relevant than men's, men's basketball is more relevant than women's.) Even though Michigan basketball has never previously been outfitted by Jordan Brand, I imagine that JB will take full advantage of the ability for Michigan to once-again acknowledge the Fab Five, who pioneered a couple Nike shoes on their own, as well as introducing the baggy shorts and black socks to the college basketball crowd (which Jordan did for the NBA). Thus, I decided to carry over the trim and mismatching outlined numbers from those Fab Five-era uniforms (all 3 maize, blue, and white variations). I used the updated block Ms, though instead of including large ones on each leg of the shorts, I just stuck them on their current shorts and chest locations. Like I said, using design cues from past Jordan Brand or Jordan-esque men's basketball uniforms and reappropriating them for current Jordan Brand schools' women's volleyball unis. Here's how my first draft turned out: I have a few questions for C&C: I decided to go without a similarly-trimmed collar because it didn't look right connected to the Nike piping, but do you think I could use one?I don't know any Jordan Brand fonts besides the one for the Charlotte Hornets (which I used for this template). Any tips for one I could use for the jersey numbers and NOB?I'm just using the official color values off Michigan's brand guidelines page, but do you think I should use a more neon maize or darker blue?I'm not very scientific with my outlines (I just go with what looks right), but I feel like the blue jersey could use some thicker maize outlines for the trim. Or should I copy the Fab Five's trim completely and go maize-white-blue-white-maize?Oh, and shoutout to Lafarge for the original women's volleyball concept thread on CCSLC, from which I acquired a women's volleyball uniforms template and who also alerted me to the "solid jersey" rule passed by the NCAA in 2013.

    NCAA Football Concept Series

    It’s not that hard for a team to have a good football uniform. A fan needs to recognize you whether they are at the stadium or watching you on TV. I will turn on a game and it takes me far too long to determine who is playing. In response, I have decided to start a concept series Back in 2006, I made an ACC football concept thread. My goal back then is the same as it is now: make a concept that a team could use for years to come. The original thread can be found here, but my new ACC football thread starts right now. A few notes: Alternate helmets: In general, I am against alternate helmets, but for a different reason than you might think: they are twice as much work. Fitting one helmet is hard enough. In this day and age, I realize that teams will have a second helmet, so when it will add something to the concept, I have let it go. But for a team like BC that has a helmet that has looked almost the same for decades, they don’t need three different lids. Socks: Most of the socks in this series are professional style socks with a color on top and white at the bottom. I realize that most schools will not make their athletes wear these. On the other hand, I figured that it would look pretty good for most teams so I ran with it. Release schedule: I am planning on dropping one concept everyday. I will link all the posts here after I put them up. Boston College: BC is one of two Catholic schools to have BCS football teams. My first move was to drop the italicized BC; it doesn’t fit in the traditional, old school feel that I see with them. I couldn’t lose the eagle logo though; I merged the old logo with the new eagle to make the primary. I avoided the triple helmet stripe, as BC has a much longer history with just one down the middle, and if you are going to have multple helmets, they should actually be different. The jerseys are a mix of conservative and modern; the eagle is a sleeve logo, and their “stained glass” pattern is on the numbers, pants and helmet stripe. I find that if you have a gold outline on a white number (or vice versa), you lose the outline. Instead, I made the outline black, and I think it looks really sharp.
