NCAA Division I FCS Concept Uniforms (SoCon: Furman and Mercer Added)

Recommended Posts

DARTMOUTH

 

This concept set is heavily based from the uniforms the Big Green football wore during the 50's and 60's. The "Dartmouth stripes" dominate the design, as the way it should be. Also, no more black and grey shenanigans, just green and white.

HARVARD

 

I initially had an old Harvard concept where the uniforms are heavy on black piping (straight side panels on the jerseys extending to the pants) and where the khaki pants are shelved in favor of white pants. I thought that this will create a huge backlash, and I shelved that idea for good. While this new concept is similar to the ones the Crimson wore recently, the biggest changes are on the shoulders and the pants. Pant stripes are back, and the academic logo is omitted (to give a more vintage and more traditional vibe). Black jerseys and crimson pants are here to stay, and the numbers on the black jerseys are now white instead of almost unreadable crimson.

I love Harvard. In a perfect world, this is how they look. The academic logo on the pants. Not too heavy on black. Good balance of crimson and khaki color. They look fantastic. Great old school, traditional look. This is the set a school like Harvard deserves.

 

Dartmouth is meh. You know, just bland overall. I don’t mind it. I actually liked their black matte helmets. But I understand why you dumped them.

PENN

 

The iconic Penn stripes are here to stay.

PRINCETON

 

Repeat what I said about Penn. White pants are now the main choice (to give a classical look), with the black pants becoming the alternate. Orange jerseys are also included, as well as an all-orange look. After all, they're called the Tigers, right?

YALE

 

Under Armour's version of Yale uniforms looks really good. It's so good, I decided to retain the overall design and add navy blue pants and an all-grey set. The theme for this concept is virtually identical to my Penn State concept.

Up next is MEAC. Though it will move back to Division II, Savannah State will still be included in this topic.

BETHUNE-COOKMAN

 

Unpopular opinion: I like this particular set for BCU. This was my inspiration for my concept, which is just essentially a toned-down version of it. The herringbone pattern has been sublimated and tapered to evoke the name "Wildcats". See, I gave y'all a partial Nike-splanation.

DELAWARE STATE

 

Like any other insect-nicknamed teams, the Hornets gain a honeycomb pattern. However, the difference here is that I made a gradient out of that pattern, which makes this set stand out. Also, the red helmet with the "State" script becomes the only helmet choice for DSU. And yes, I used a Russell Athletic font for a Nike-outfitted team.

Feel free to comment, guys. It's a rare opportunity for an FCS-related concept topic to be finished until the end. I will really finish this.

Dartmouth: Perfect except for the helmet, but that isn't really your fault.

Harvard: Cut the black and maybe drop the khaki pants, too.

Penn: Good except that the shade of red looks weird.

Princeton: The four sleeve stripes may look awkward on an actual jersey.  Other than that, spot on.

Yale: If you're going to go with a gray set (I wouldn't), add a gray helmet.  Perfect otherwise.

Bethune-Cookman: *applause*

Delaware State: Not a fan of the helmet logo or the honeycomb-gradient thingy.  But not terrible.

The honeycomb gradient is a neat idea for Delaware State... I just wish the hornet logo is on the helmet instead of the 'State' logo.

Not a fan of the khaki/gold pants for Harvard? That has been their main football pants for decades.

The sublimated sleeve cap is definitely a strong move for taking things that would be a bit much (like BCU) and giving them subtlety that makes it work. That's why I like the honeycomb gradient as well- it plays as subtle. Not sure how well it would translate to real world application, but it has potential.

 

Really dug the whole Ivy League- not sure how I feel about Harvard in black but I know it's a thing they do. And really appreciate trying to find a way to get Princeton a suitable number of stripes on a modern jersey- looking through a GIS for Princeton football, that looks like a constant struggle.

FLORIDA A&M

 

FAMU football uniforms used to have shoulder yokes, and so, I'm bringing them back. This time, the shoulder yoke contains a reptilian pattern, and this same style extends to the pant striping.

HOWARD

 

The pattern on the numbers and jersey side panels of the Bison's first UA uniforms was implemented on the sleeve caps and on the back portion of the pants.
