College Football for Non Football D1 Teams

I missed this thread, love these concepts! Might have missed the boat, but any chance for a DIII SUNY Brockport Golden Eagles concept?

I have loved every concept, but Portland has a couple of issues that I think need fixing.

 

The numeral font, if you're going to have it be inspired by the wordmark, should probably be in Impact or some other similar font. What you have now looks nothing like the wordmark.

The wave stripes feel off. They don't fit together as cleanly as they should. The placement of the waves need to be more cohesive, as it feels like the waves diverge from each other the longer the stripes go on.

 

That said, the ideas are great here, if the execution needs work. Clean it up, and this will be on the level of your other amazing works.

It's not really your fault, but man do I hate the way Little Rock's Trojan logo is weirdly transparent in parts. On the silver helmet I wonder if it would look better if that part were just filled in with white rather than an outline around their dumb, weird logo quirk. Maybe they'll fix that one day if I whine about more. They changed their branding from UALR to Little Rock a few years after I started saying they should do that, so perhaps they're just catering to the whims of a fan of their biggest rival. 

 

If you need/want/don't care about suggestions, I'd throw out UT-Arlington just to fill out the Sun Belt ranks.

Southeastern Louisiana. They're an FCS team so IDK if they qualify. 

 

FCS is still Division I.

Where did you get the font for the Portland concept?

I would love to see a Pacific Tigers concept soon if it's still going. I have really liked these, especially Seton Hall's Throwback and St. John's. My absolute favorite is Wichita State's.

Yeah I'm going to keep this thread for schools that do not have a football team and they do have a football team. But thanks for commenting!

I got it from a website that is now down but it is Oklahoma State's "Stillwater" font.

Thanks! I already have Pacific done so I will add them to the list to post.

Thanks for the comments. I took into consideration all your comments and I think I came up with a design that is better.

  • Moved the wave pattern on the jersey to sleeve caps. Looks more like the school's crest 
  • Changed number font. I should've been more clear in the original post. I meant the number font to look like the T and L in the script. But I think this number font works too.

Thanks for the comments and I will have Charleston up next.

With me being on Spring Break I will have more time to complete these concepts so I hope to be turning out these concepts quickly. Here's Charleston:

College of Charleston?

COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON COUGARS

DESIGN: -A traditional design for a traditional school

               -Thick three stripe design like the old 49ers pants

 

HELMET: -Satin gold and matte maroon helmet. Both with gray facemask

                -American flag and recolored SC and Palmetto ouline

                -C logo on both helmets             

                -"The College" script on both helmets. I used this script because it is more unique than the "Cougars" script and the "Charleston" script was too long for the helmet. Plus they do use it on their baseball uniforms. Also, I tried different options with the white outline and this is the best I could come up with. Just the gold script was hard to see on the red helmet and a red outline and then a white outline was too hard to see as well

 

JERSEY: -Three stripe on sleeve cap with the C logo on it

               -Number font that resembles the logo and script

 

PANTS: -Gold, white, and red pants

             -Three stripe on each of the pants

 

Thanks guys for the comments guys and like I said I hope to have more teams out a lot quicker than the last couple weeks.

For Charleston's "the college" red helmet, can you try to switch the white and gold? It blends in too much as it sits now.

You what I'd like to see? Concepts for Grand Canyon, Chicago State, UMKC and UT Rio Grande Valley.

 

I would like to see what you can do with these WAC schools.

CHICAGO STATE COUGARS

DESIGN: -My own twist on the Chicago flag

               -Tapered the colored stripes for a sharp effect. Like a Cougar's claw or teeth

 

HELMET: -Green satin and black matte helmet

                -Chicago flag stripe on each helmet 

                -USA Flag and Chicago flag on back

 

JERSEY: -Chicago flag stripe on sleeve caps

               -Sleeve caps are white on all jerseys. The outer part of the flag is white and I wanted to recreate that. I tried to taper the outer white stripes but it was too thick and look cluttered

               -Number and chest font that was sharp but classic

               -No outline on the away jersey numbers. It was too hard to see with a black outline

 

PANTS: -Black, white, and green pants

             -Chicago flag stripe on each

 

Oh how I miss seeing the WAC on a football jersey. Thanks for looking guys and as always C&C is appreciated

My one thing on Chicago State is... on the fronts, bump everything more towards the top. It looks too low. Other than that, I got nothing!

Thanks for noticing that. I originally had a black outline on it that was pretty big and I just forgot to move it up.

I have Utah Valley almost done but I need some help figuring out what color facemask I should use. The options are below:

Gold Facemask.png

Green Facemask.png

White Facemask.png

 

For perspective, white is used more than gold in the uniforms. Gold is used as outlines to the number, chest text, and striping. I have green, gold, and white pants to accompany the jerseys and helmets. Knowing you guys, you'll help me come up with the best option. Thanks guys!

I would go with Gold, it provides the best balance to the helmet
