  1. Ohio State. 60's/70's Brutus Buckeye from an old pennant of mine
  2. GOOD ONE. Not just a Sports one either. Here are the blog links to my Paul Brown "What If" and why he is the most important figure in the history if Post WWII Football. http://jamdawg-blog.blogspot.com/2011/08/why-paul-brown-is-most-important-figure.html http://jamdawg-blog.blogspot.com/2011/09/why-paul-brown-is-most-important-figure.html http://jamdawg-blog.blogspot.com/2011/09/why-paul-brown-is-most-important-figure_05.html
  3. I'm writing a two part blog on that very subject. The Entire History of Professional and Major College Football since WWII would be Radically Different to the point where it's at the "Alternate Universe" level. His influence to this day is still that widespread. Here's some more. What if George Steinbrenner were successful in his attempt to buy The Indians in the early 70's? (He tried to before he bought The Yankees.) What if Michael Jordan had missed "The Shot" over Craig Ehlo? What if Vic Wertz's Hit had gone towards one of the Foul Poles in the Polo Grounds (Which was a short distance.) in Game One of The '54 World Series instead of going to Center Field? (The Polo Grounds Distance to Center was ridiculous. It would have been a Home Run in EVERY other park at that time.) What if The Officials had properly called Rich Karlis's Overtime FG Wide Left instead of Good in the '87 AFC Championship? ("The Drive") What if The Umps had decided to actually call strikes for Indians Pitchers after Game 3 of the 2007 ALCS instead of squeezing the strike zone to the size of a shot glass on Indians Pitching? What if Art Modell had never bought The Browns? What if he never fired Paul Brown? What if he never decided to play hard ball with Jim Brown when he was filming The Dirty Dozen? What if after the Merger, The NFL dropped the "Super Bowl" name (Remember, the first four Super Bowls WERE NOT NFL SANCTIONED GAMES.) and just kept calling them the NFL Championship Game? Yeah, man, I saw that blog that you had up one time. Very interesting. Brown is one of, if not the most, influential man in Pro Football history. It is heavy to think about how much the NFL would be different without him. I want to address some of those "what ifs" that you have posted: 1. As far as the 86 AFC Title game is concerned, the "what if" should be this: What if Marty Schottenheimer would have passed the ball instead of ran it on third and 2 on the previous drive? 2. If Jordan misses that shot, the Cavs go to the conference finals, but get exterminated by Detroit in five games at most because the Pistons would have been too deep and strong for them. As for the Bulls, though, not making that run probably delays their development, and who knows if they win the title by 1991. Thanks. I've moved all my stuff like that to Angelfire (Website, when I have time.) and Blogthings (Again, when I have time.)

  5. Even the music would be good. Queen's "Princes of The Universe" from Highlander when the team comes out for pregame warmups. "Scotland The Brave" when Goals are scored. Crazy Stuff.
  6. They look great but coaches and officials would hate the boundary lines on the Florida Court. Too jagged and distracting.
  7. BIG (Big Ten.)14 Team. North: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois, Northwestern, Notre Dame. South: Nebraska, Iowa, Indiana, Purdue, Ohio State, Penn State, Pitt. Big XII 12 Team North: Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, Iowa State. South: Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor, Texas Christian, Southern Methodist. SEC 16 Team East: Kentucky, Tennessee, Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida, Miami. West: Vanderbilt, LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Florida State. Big East (Football Only), Since I added Pitt to the BIG (Big Ten.) and TCU to the Big XII; I would add Army, Navy and Marshall, Bring back Temple and bring Villanova up from I-AA, making them a 12 team football conference. North: UConn, Syracuse, Rutgers, Army, Temple, Villanova South: West Virginia, Louisville, Cincinnati, Navy, Marshall, South Florida. I would put in a provision that each team from one division can put on paper one team from other division so they can play every year. (The Big Ten did this when Penn State joined. The Big 8/XII should have done this when The Texas Schools joined. That's what killed The Oklahoma-Nebraska Rivalry.) I'd also allow traditional rivalries that would be now inter-conference: WVU-Pitt, Oklahoma-Nebraska, etc.
  8. I need one with... Cleveland Browns AAFC Champions: 1946, 1947, 1948, 1949 NFL Champions: 1950, 1954, 1955, 1964 Cleveland Indians World Series Champions: 1920, 1948 A.L.

Thanks.
  9. Okay. The collar is a bit busy. As for the TV Numbers. The Shoulder Yoke itself is forward in the drawing. I would also bring back the bigger 4-inch TV Numbers As for the pants. The two logos on the belt/waist would be more subtle. Thanks for the input.
  10. Send me a private message, I have the templates.
  11. Looks WAY BETTER than the one the School Uses.
  12. Since the NCAA allows the teams to both wear dark jerseys as long as they don't clash it'd make prefect sense to roll these out at Michigan since they would've been worn at a time that both teams wore their home uniforms unless they were too close to the same color The NCAA must have recently changed the rule because I remember a couple of years ago during the USC-UCLA game in Pasadena, USC was penalized a timeout at the start of the game for wearing their Home Unis in a road game, so Rick Nieuheisel wasted a timeout so they could start even all because Nieuheisel and Pete Carroll wanted to bring back the days when both teams wore their home unis when both played their home games in The Colliseum. I thought this was great, myself.
