  1. I had the same thing happened to me, as well. More so via text than a Facebook message. Nonetheless, the logos are family friendly, and I can live with "Sod Dogs" more so than "Sod Poodles."
  2. UIF and UFL = IFL (Indoor Football League) and CIF (Champions Indoor Football). Had to fix that for you. I always thought that it may be best if there was a national "federation" of indoor football leagues, and conduct a "champions league" concept much like European soccer. It'll never happen, because egos.
  3. Orlando shut down its operations, compared to Jacksonville's jump to the National Arena League. And I wouldn't say that the IFL is more spread out than the AFL. The majority of the IFL's franchises are based in the Midwest, save for Arizona. Sadly, as someone who keeps his ears on the ground when it comes to indoor football, there won't be any mergers anytime soon. There was talk of a potential merger between Champions Indoor Football and the IFL earlier this year, but that fell through and fell through hard. Egos are to blame, for the most part.
  4. Here are a few uniforms from my neck of the woods, in the Texas Panhandle. The Dumas Demons' (District 3-5A) home and away uniforms are simple, coupled with the Arizona State fork logo on the helmets. The Demons also switched over from Russell uniforms to Nike last season. Sunray (District 1-2A, Division I) switched from blue helmets to white helmets this season. Their home combination is white, blue, white. Their away combo is a pure whiteout. While their template is older, the Bobcats have the "Arizona fade" stripe on the sleeve. On their pants, the word "Cats" is in place of a stripe, much like the Demons' uniforms. On the helmet is the old school Montana State "Cats" logo. The Wellington Skyrockets (District 2-2A, Division II) has a home combination of white, red and red. They have the Washington "W" logo with a star marking their 2013 state championship within the logo itself. It's a nice touch. Their uniforms are also much the Miami Hurricanes, before they made the switch to Adidas. West Texas High (Plemons-Stinnett-Phillips, based in Stinnett) is known as the Comanches. They also reside in District 1-2A Division I, and their away combination is white, white and gold. The Comaches' home set is white, red jersey and gold pants. Their spear is a retouched version of the old Florida State "spear" logo. This is another really nice set.
  5. I know that all too well. My school (Southeast Webster) merged to become East Sac County's conference rival Southeast Valley three years ago. In my neck of the woods (the Texas Panhandle), the Dumas Demons and the Sunray Bobcats are 1-0. Tomorrow, Dumas travels down to Lubbock to face Estacado, nicknamed the Matadors. On Friday, Sunray heads to the small town of Gruver, where they will take on the Greyhounds. I'm tempted to showcase their uniforms in the high school football uniform thread. Both schools have nice looks to them.
  6. At least the G-League Clippers logo is better than the Clippers logo. Not by much, but still.
  7. Since this is front and center in the Logos board, I do have one suggestion: Including Champions Indoor Football under the "Indoor Football" section of the Football tab on the mothership. It's the merger between Champions Professional Indoor Football League and Lone Star Football League, shares Tier II with the Indoor Football League beneath the AFL while the main site hosts dead leagues such as the PIFL and the X-League. I have most of the logos on file, including an expansion team tapped for the 2016 season. Here are the logos, along with a few notes. Hang in there, it's a bit of a long post. Main reason being is that I just wanted to have all of the bases covered. Champions Indoor Football: primary logo, 2015-present. Amarillo Venom: primary logo, 2015-present. Amarillo Venom: secondary logo, 2016- present. Insert other media Bloomington Edge: primary logo, 2016-present. CenTex Fightin' Cavalry: Announced to join the CIF for the 2017 season. Gary Dawgs: 2015, never played. Renamed to the Illiana Eagles, who became the Chicago Eagles. Chicago Eagles: primary, 2016-present. Chicago Eagles: secondary, 2016-present. Dodge City Law: primary, 2015-present. Duke City (Albuquerque, New Mexico) Gladiators: primary logo, 2015-present. Duke City Gladiators: secondary logo, 2015-present. Mesquite Marshals: primary logo, 2016. Renamed to Dallas Marshals for 2017 season. Dallas Marshals: primary logo, 2017-present. Omaha Beef: primary logo, 2015-present. Salina Bombers: primary logo, 2015. Folded midseason, not connected to Salina Liberty franchise. Salina Liberty: primary logo, 2016-present. Salina Liberty: secondary logo, 2016-present. San Angelo Bandits: primary, 2015. Changed their colors for the 2016 season. San Angelo Bandits: primary, 2016-present. San Angelo Bandits: secondary, 2016-present. Sioux City Bandits: primary, 2015-present. Sioux City Bandits: secondary, 2015-present. Texas Revolution: primary, 2015-present. Wichita Force: primary, 2015-present.
  8. Is it just me or is the North Texas Fresh subtly racist?
  9. All it just needs is a little orange in the middle helmet stripe, middle stripe of the jersey sleeve and in the middle pant stripe. That's all this combination lacks to make it a nice special uniform.
  10. I love the look, but the general has a close resemblance to ole Joe Stalin.
  11. The spiritual successor to my high school - Southeast Valley. This logo was created by baseball coach/art instructor Bryan Bachel. If you look closely, you will see an eagle and a knight's helmet from the two former high schools Southeast Webster (Eagles, my old high school) and Prairie Valley (Warriors).
  12. Actually, it could have been a lot worse. For one, the Amarillo Sox was a terrible name with a culture of losing. In my circle of friends here in Amarillo, we labeled them "the Sux". So to change the culture and to prepare for the opening of the new downtown stadium, Stephanie Tucker (the General Manager) held a "name-the-team" contest. This is what came out of that contest. Another interesting point to make about the Dillas nickname is that the ownership who held the name has a debt (from unpaid bills, etc.) and even if the fans wanted the Dillas to return, Tucker and the current ownership were unable to attain the Dillas nickname. Regarding the Thunderheads logo, the gold symbolizes the lineage of both the Sox and Gold Sox. The navy blue and scarlet red symbolize the connection to the Amarillo Dillas. In my opinion, while it is imperfect... it's a good call back and is a step in a new direction.
  13. Heh, instead of picking one or the other...wouldn't it be a lot easier to just to pick up both and drag Cincy along also?
  14. Boise State is basically zero on the academic scale. Understood. Hence the whole balance/pipe dream talk. However, I wouldn't think there would be a decent substitute that has more of an academic profile than that of a 'junior college on steriods' like a BSU, would there? Just curious more than anything.
  15. I believe that the number 14 should be the magical number for the big-time conferences. Do away with the Big East football conference first, then have the remainder of the Big East (West Virginia, Louisville, Cincinnati, and South Florida) join the Big 12 and bring in BYU. The Big Ten should wrap up their goal of attaining the NYC market with Rutgers and UConn. The ACC and the SEC could definitely stay where they are. The Pac-12 (even though Cal and Stanford would hate it) could draw in Boise State and (this one is quite out there) Hawaii. While that may a little out there... the markets are manageable, there's a decent balance of high academics and high athletics, it could also allow a Mountain West/C-USA confederation to attain an at-large bid, and keep Norte Dame independent. Please feel free to call me crazy. Haha.
  16. I agree whole-heartedly with Rams. It was the Pac-12 (with the possible expansion of UT, OU, Oklahoma State, A&M, and Texas Tech) that forced the Big 10's hand in bringing in Nebraska (even though Mizzou was at fault for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time to the Big 12). Yes, the Big 10 wanted to expand to 12 teams to have the cash cow of a championship game...but it was going to take a slow and grinding year or more for any statements to be made. My thoughts: The Big Ten, the Big 12, SEC, PAC-12, and ACC are done or have been done expanding for the moment. The next expansion/division talk will be between the Big East football schools and the Big East basketball schools (perhaps led by Notre Dame?) breaking off into separate conferences. The Big East Football Conference will look at perhaps a Central Florida and East Carolina while waiting on Villanova's decision to make their 12 (or stick to just ten with TCU and 'Nova and play a round-robin schedule like the Big 12). Out west, however, it'd be a little more touchy. I'm sure the Mountain West will still want to keep a presence in Texas and pursue SMU and Houston (along with Utah State, barring if or when Hawaii will want to jump ship and become a football-only member) to make it twelve. With this, the WAC will be considered an "unclassified" conference, appeal to the NCAA, or disintegrate altogether. Like I said before, with this next round of conference movement, your main casualties will end up being the Conference USA and the WAC.
  17. Sadly, I think the next stage of expansion belongs to the Big East and perhaps the Mountain West (to at least attempt to attain an AQ status). The casualties being the WAC (by far) and to an extent, Conference USA.
  18. Goes to show that the Big Ten decides when the sun rises and when the sun sets, I reckon? But that's a huge sigh of relief for the Big East and Notre Dame that the Big Ten is satisfied...for now.
