Rebuilding FBS College Football

Recommended Posts

So, I will be redesigning each of the new 190 teams that would make up the new FBS. From the list below, you can see the new conference realignment that I have thought up. 

 

The Power 5, has been reduced to the Power 4, and I have finally put the Big XII out of it's misery, and I have expanded each of the Power 4 Conferences to 18 teams. Each team would play 9 or 10 Conference games, with 8 of them in their own division, and then alternating between teams from the different divisions. 

 

I have also eliminated the Mountain West Conference to form the new American Conference, and have promoted the Big Sky and the Ivy League. 5 of the Bottom 6 Conferences have 20 teams, with the Ivy League being the exception. 

 

I also planned a new 10 team playoff, in which the winner of the each of the Power 4 Conferences and the American Conference get an automatic berth, the highest ranked team from the other conferences that won their conference championship also gets a spot. The remaining 4 spots are at large spots, which are only eligible for the highest ranked teams in the Power 4 Conferences.

Some of these are great. My only nitpick, some teams should stick to a more conservative helmet. But I’m a sucker for tradition, im loving all the creativity risks your taking, they’re certainly paying off.

Was about to complain about your choice of “land sharks” (just seems kinda milb) but I  just read an article about it, most students support it, and I really like the s logo so I’m fine with it

Quick nitpick with the PAC-18. Utah is actually further north than BYU.

Interested in this series.

 

One nitpick for presentation - Your links to the SEC teams all showed up in the same place. DropBox also has a limited storage, so if you ever delete those files, no one will ever get to see your work here. I suggest uploading on Imgur and copying the "direct link" of each image. That way you can also post images directly in to your post.

I like the looks of a lot of these, and look forward to seeing the uniforms. Two little picky points I have are with my UC Bearcats. First, I would love to see them in the Big 10. Second, Cincinnati has 2 n's and 1 t and they are an Under Armour school, not Nike. Can't wait to see what you do for them.

Uh...I'm seeing black where black should not be (Florida, Florida, Houston, etc.) and an obsession with helmet patterns.  I hope the full uniforms are better.

 

Also, what team needs TWO different gray helmets, much less Tennessee?

Please change Iowa States colors... Replace yellow with black and/or make the anthracite/black/white combo more prominent.

These helmets are amazing, I’m very curious to see some of these alternate jerseys that go with these helmets. Great Job!

I think he made it to emulate a chrome finish. Same with other helmets that have people on them.

Oh now I see it’s not team specific. Still would work for osu though, they have a really hostile crowd

I know that, I am from Cincy. I was referring to his original post when he doubled the t's instead of the n's.

Um, don't listen to this guy. Iowa already has a black & yellow team.
