  1. The 1972 Project is officially wrapped up, meaning I can devote my time here fully now. That should mean no more long layoffs between teams. Home - Away: Count me in the camp that isn't a fan of the Sens going back to basically their inaugural look. Don't get me wrong, it's better than the uniforms they're replacing, but I don't like the move. So what I tried to do for Ottawa, was try and capture the sense of history of professional hockey in Ottawa in a unique uniform. What I mean there is "capture the essence of the Barberpole, without going full barberpole" The double stripe that has come into play in recent years was a good start. So on the jerseys, the stripes on the sleeves double up, creating a sense of the barberpole without destroying your retinas. I went with the criminally underused profile Senator logo on the chest. Double stripe on the hem. Went back to the more "romanesque" number font, with the blocky NOB font. Socks match the stripes on the sleeves, pants match the hem line. I also kept the split shield logo with Ottawa Senators as the pants logo. Alternate - I was hesitant to go with a black home and a black alternate jersey, but ultimately, the design didn't work as well on red. Anyways, still with the barberpole in mind, I kept an early draft for what the primary uniforms were going to look like. This time with a triple stripe, heritage/vintage white (I always thought Ottawa made good use of it) and the O logo. Tie down, striped collar. Still with the Roman font and blocky NOB font. No stripes on the pants. Brought back the striped O logo as a pant logo and a helmet logo. Socks have the same stripes as the jerseys. Legacy - NORMALIZE WHITE ALTERNATES!! NORMALIZE WHITE AT HOME (sometimes, not full time). Returned the Senators back to their original white jersey, in its original glory. Original logo on the chest, S logos on the sleeves. Bigger double hem stripe on the, well, hem line, which follows the curve of said hem. Back to the block number font, which is on top of the stripes on the sleeves. Reverse Retro - I really have no complaints with what Ottawa did for their RR. It makes sense, but really just feels like an alternate jersey when looked at with the new set, which was probably done by some degree of design. So I decided to go with the alternate from 2000-2007 and with red and black flipping places on the jersey and on the socks. Almost went with a red helmet, but I didn't like it. Front facing Senator logo back on the chest, Peace Tower logos on the shoulders. Same pants as the Legacy jersey, love how that works out. Laurel leaf pattern on the sleeves and hem line. Same style stripes on the socks, sans leaf pattern C&C welcome! That was my bad on the Detroit post. I meant to link those but forgot it before I posted it Moving forward, the inspiration for the Legacy and Reverse Retros will be posted in the descriptions.
  2. Try this one, in case people are interested to see some numbers instead of some designs for a change
  3. Can you guys see the spreadsheet or did I mess something up when I shared it?
  4. Original Design It felt fitting to close out this project officially with the team that kickstarted the uniforms arms race in the college football world. Ironically, they've actually simplified things down from years past. Part of me misses the mix and match-ability of the Oregon teams of seasons past. So with a few tweaks, I wanted to sort of take things back to those days. Football - Consider this the official reveal of what my Vapor Fusion template is gonna be. Which is really just the jersey template, but it felt appropriate since Oregon is the only team wearing it at the moment. I stripped away a lot of the feathers from the wing pattern previously used, to just 3 sets of feathers. This means just winged helmets for football, bit similar to now. Jerseys see the same reduction of feathers, down to just 3. Oregon O on the chest opposite the Pac-12 logo. Pants also have the wings coming up from the bottom, along with 3 sets of cleats and socks Alternates - In old Oregon fashion, they wouldn't be complete without some form of an alternate or alternates. Went back to a BFBS jersey, this time with no white/silver and using team colors. An interesting concept. I always liked Oregon in grey. There was something about their apple green, grey and white that I really appreciated. So an all grey uniform makes its appearance, with no yellow to be found. And because I never came up with this logic, that many Oregon fans don't or didn't like wearing black because it happens to be a primary color of their hated Rival. So I kept the Nightmare Green (as close as I could get to it) around as yet another alternate. This time, no apple green, NM green, yellow and black. Hockey - In all reality, it's not terribly different from what I had done before for hockey. biggest changes, save for template changes, is the wings on the shoulders are no longer subtle, and are in the new style. Pants now also have the wings coming up from the bottom, like football. Ducks script is also now on the helmet as a sticker. Also added in a yellow helmet. If ASU can mix and match hockey parts, I feel like Oregon could too. Alternates - I just kept things basically the same from the football alternates, as will the other two sports. Black, grey and Nightmare green alternates, keeping the same spirit, just in their own colors. I feel like these bits and pieces could mix and match fairly well. I might add these to the Mix and Match website just to see. Baseball - Really, the biggest change was the wings move down from the shoulders and become the focal point on the sleeves. Otherwise, everything stays mostly the same from before. Alternates - Oregon's baseball uniforms have remarkably stayed pretty conservative. these do not. dressing in almost head to toe in a color, save for grey which has green socks. Basketball - Surprising amount of change went into these. The wings no longer worked on the shoulders so the NW stripes became used around the arms and the collars. This moved the wings down to the shorts, which share the space with the same stripes from the jerseys coming down the sides. O logo stays on the fronts. Ducks on the home, Oregon on the road greens. Fighting Ducks on the yellow alts. Alternates - Same style of as the main 3, just all three will have the baseball Ducks script. Guys, it's over. That's the end of the list. It has been a wild ride working on this project. I can't believe that it's over but I'm glad that I was able to see it through to the end. If anyone is interested, I cataloged a uniform breakdown by conference and all total. C&C welcome as always!
  5. Dropping the colored sleeve caps was 100% the right way to go. Probably not gonna spend too much more time on these. But I did move the logos on the white and reds to one side of the chest. Black kit changes completely. Tried the stripes on the sleeves and put the wordmark on the chest, with the shield logo moving to the back of the jersey. Personally, as an NDSU/College Football at large fan, unless the NCAA steps in and says "Hey you're kicking too much ass, you gotta move up", I don't see them moving up voluntarily. They've got a good home in MVFC, which makes more geographic sense than the MAC. The Big Ten is out of the question. They're still heads and shoulders above NDSU and probably forever will be. The AAC already has a wide spread of teams, and I can't see them adding NDSU for 12 teams sake which adds travel costs for a lot of the eastern schools, especially the Florida schools. Love the mention of Boise State, because unless BSU football falls off a cliff in the next 10 years, I firmly believe they'll be in the PAC sooner rather than later. I just don't know who the PAC adds for balance. BYU? A MW California school?
  6. With my 72 Project winding down, I thought to myself, "Maybe a break would be nice, get through the semester, and then start a new series." Well then the Reverse Retros were officially released. And then I said screw the break, let's jump into my next project, because honestly, I have no self control. Since the NBA style of doing jerseys is all the rage right now in the concept world, that was the genesis for this idea. 4 jerseys for every team, though there will be no "Association, Icon" style names. Home, Away, Alternate and a Legacy slot were the original four jerseys. Then it became 5 with the advent of the Reverse Retro jerseys. I'll be doing teams in order of how they finished the regular season, starting with the dregs of the league (Detroit *sheds tears*) and ending with Boston. Seattle will be featured, likely after Boston. Home - Away: If you were expecting sweeping changes for the home and away jerseys, then you're in the wrong thread. I tried that in the last NHL thread of mine, simply trying to match the home and away jerseys. So the away jersey is unchanged. The home jersey does change ever so slightly. The hem stripe, formerly running into the hem, moves up to match the away jersey as a stripe. Other than that, the pants, socks and helmets are all the same. Alternate - I always felt an affinity to the Stadium Series uniforms and felt that with some tweaks, they could be a good alternate that doesn't hurt the Red Wings brand. So I decreased the slant on the chest stripe from the original, and allowed it to continue on the back of the jersey. The sleeves now have stripes and don't run off the ends of the sleeves anymore. Winged Wheel moves to the shoulders. Modern D logo on the chest. Slightly larger stripes on the socks. No changes to the pants. Gloves change up the colors a little. Legacy - Revisited the '27/'28 and 75th anniversary jerseys. Kept it largely the same. Bevy of stripes on the chest, DETROIT in the middle of the big one. Stripes on the sleeves to almost match the chest. Socks match the chest stripes. Pants change the Winged Wheel logo to the Old English D. Helmet also uses the Old English D. Reverse Retro - Literally anything would have been better than what the Wings actually went with. White and Grey? I get it, how do you RR a team that has had 4 total uniform styles in their history? Maybe dig just a little deeper? I went with the '28/'29 Cougars uniforms, and Reversed Retro'd them! Red base, white elements. Rolled with the 2014 WC script and the shorter wing. Used the pants from the Legacy jerseys. Also the red helmet now has the Old English D instead of the wordmark C&C is welcome!

This is the big one. I've had the bits and pieces of this one working for two and half years and I finally feel ready enough to get this one out to the public. This project began when I wondered one day what would happen if Nike did something ludicrous and somehow managed to get apparel rights to every single FBS level team. Of course this is seemingly impossible in the real world, but it was fun to think about. Then I took it one step further. Not only would get every FBS football team, but if every FBS football team also had a Division 1 basketball, baseball and hockey team for Nike to get their hands on. So the goal here is one, to actually finish this idea, but more than that, is to see if I can create a unique identity for 130 some teams across 4 different sports. This means that some traditional looks will be changed slightly and some might change drastically. Nevertheless, I'm excited to get this off the ground and share it with you guys. Teams will be posted as I get them done and will be done in a random order I have created with some help from the internet and first up is the Ohio Bobcats of the MAC: (I also will create one of these cool team headers for every team). Ohio's sports have a rather laid back and simplistic look to them. Even with adidas/Russell at the helm of their apparel, they don't have too crazy of a look and I kept that in mind as I designed their uniforms for this. Keeping that in mind, I left their football uniforms pretty much the same as they have been the last couple years. Biggest change here is the addition of real pants stripes as opposed to no stripes or very short stripes. I limited black to an alternate set that would hopefully be worn separately, but in the current state of college football we all know that wouldn't happen. The hockey uniforms are very similar to how the football uniforms go. I did consider shoulder logos for them but I didn't keep them, as it just didn't feel right to me. Baseball uniforms again are very simple and consistent with the rest of the uniforms. Biggest thing here and across the board is that there is no longer a "grey away" designation. Unless a team has grey in their set, I won't be giving a team a grey uniform for baseball. Basketball is consistent with the rest. I didn't want to go full Celtics with Ohio, so the double stripe pattern is on the shoulders and the collar trim is a solid color. On the shorts the waistband is striped and the hem is a solid color. C&C is welcome as always. Given the larger nature of this thread, I'll try and get the next team up as soon as I can.
  8. My threads have been blacklisted. :huh:

  9. Love your college football concepts. Keep it up!
