  1. Excellent. I love it. Minor gripe about the pants with the orange stripes, but miles better than an orange pant.
  2. I agree it should be on the court. But despite my best efforts, it won't be. That's actually the Under Armour uniform template for this style jersey and shorts. underarmourteamuniforms.com is the link, and you can make an account and do your own. Granted, I recreated this one in inkscape, but you'll be seeing the same thing.
  3. This is a concept for Shockers basketball for next season. This is only a concept, this will never be on the court.
  4. It's the same thing: not enough real estate on a jersey for a long wordmark. You're more likely to see it in softball because the wordmark is the same for each jersey size. If the wordmark is too big for an extra small women's jersey, then it's going to get downsized.
  5. Yeah, you're right. It's a case of the wordmark not being basketball specific. When these jerseys are designed, the wordmark is typically designated to be 2", 2.5", or 3" inches tall. So if your wordmark is too wide when it's three inches tall, it gets bumped down a half inch in height. These longer wordmarks end up getting tiny in order to fit on the front of the jerseys. Makes sense to me that the width should be the set value, so the height can vary. But what do I know, I've only been ordering basketball uniforms for college teams for eight years.
  6. Yeah, they had a wing and a ram horn. But in addition to those, give us an Oregon type wing. And an Eagles type wing. If we can't upload logos everywhere, then give us options to get close to existing designs that are notable and fun. I get that some people like having the different templates from different companies. Not my thing, but I wouldn't be upset if they put it in.
  7. Teambuilder was decent in the last iteration, but it was far from optimized. Here is how you make it better: Better font selection. They aren't going to be able to put every font an NCAA team uses in teambuilder, but they can put more than three in. Give us a couple block fonts, a couple rounded fonts, maybe an italized font. Enough so that if you wanted to remake a few teams, you aren't reusing the same thing over and over again. Instead of having a bunch of jersey designs (most of which are crap), break down the parts even further. Here are the different sleeve designs, here are the different shoulder designs, here are the side panel designs. That way one can mix and match elements without having to make a million different total jersey designs. Add spots for conference logos (or manufacturers logo). Add some flexibility to the helmets. Things like different textures or different logo sizes. Put in a simple wing helmet design or a tiger stripe design. Do I want the full creation suite that NBA 2K has? Absolutely. Can they make a good teambuilder without doing that? Yeah, they totally can.
  8. I don't think every team needs a custom number font, but I usually prefer it when they do. There are so many ways to do a block number that are unique without looking bad. If you can have a font that fits into your brand overall, use it! If not, don't use the same block font everyone else in the league uses. Do something different!
  9. Wichita State has a new black jersey coming.
  10. I'm confused as to your point. It's an equipment manager fault that the player wants to wear a baggy shirt under their jersey? Or Nike's fault? How so?
  11. Yeah, I think we are saying the same thing. I was at UConn back when they used to be in the Big East (you know, before they eventually ended up in the Big East). When we needed a replacement jersey, we would get it on demand. I'm not sure if it was Powers or some other uniform manufacturer who we contacted, but they would put the numbers and nameplate on.
  12. I have a theory regarding the Patriots numbers. I used to work at at a Nike football school. We didn't get numbers to have sewn on blank jerseys; the Nike factory did it for us. We send them the size we wanted with the name and the number, and they would sew them together and send it to us. The turn around was only a few days, as in we would put the order in on Monday, and the jersey would be in our hands before we packed up for the week on Thursday. Is it possible the factory could be the ones putting the wrong numbers on the jerseys? I'd say so.
  13. Lol no worries. I'm just goofing around!
  14. This concept is garbage and whoever made it sucks.
  15. Rotate the helmet clockwise a bit. The horizontal bars are horizontal to the ground when on a head, much like the revolution helmet. Alternatively, think about using a classic helmet design. Let me know if you want a vector file of one.
  16. It's been totally phased out in the past few years. That being said, it does make it easy to see that the concepts is yours, as you are the only person I ever see using it.
  17. I like the sleeves but I don't think the sleeveless is that much of a downgrade. Question: any reason why you stuck with that helmet style?
  18. If Ole Miss won't lean into the Star Wars motif, I don't see why UNLV shouldn't. Besides the cost of licensing from Disney.
  19. Eh... I'm not a fan. I'll post some pictures when I can. The jerseys look as good as they can look, but that's damming with faint praise.
  20. Wichita State is wearing pink uniforms this coming Thursday.
  21. Hell, I would be okay with the rule that road teams never wear white. I can handle a home team in black if the road team's look is different enough from black.
  22. Wichita State's official color is yellow, but on the court and field it all ends up being athletic gold.
  23. I would take all your design elements and move them up the helmet. Between the ear hole, the facemask, and the chin strap, you are going to lose a lot of detail.
  24. Yep, this is 100% true. Randy hates red in the uniforms. I know he hated the old husky logo too. Not sure how he feels about the new one. I think it's funny how UConn is slowly moving away from their brand refresh a couple years ago. First the return of the block C, then the removal of red. Maybe now that Randy has the uniform he wants, he will win more than one game.
