  1. I have a pointless realignment dream idea. How about a revival of the Metro Conference (but as a football-sponsoring all-sports league)? Version A: North/South: Metro North: Cincinnati Louisville Memphis UNC-Charlotte South Carolina Virginia Tech Metro South: Florida State Georgia Tech Southern Mississippi South Florida Tulane UAB Version B: East/West: Metro East: Florida State Georgia Tech UNC-Charlotte South Carolina South Florida Virginia Tech Metro West: Cincinnati Louisville Memphis Southern Mississippi Tulane UAB Summary: This fan-based dream conference is based on like MOST of the old union of C-USA back in 95-96 (Cincinnati, Louisville, Memphis, Southern Mississippi and Tulane), but with Florida State, Georgia Tech and South Carolina (from the ACC and SEC respectively), UAB, South Florida and UNC-Charlotte once former non-football schools who were also part of that old union and eventually started sponsoring football, and Virginia Tech a former football affiliate of an FBS conference while belonging to a non-football conference for other sports.
  2. Ok. Thanks. And seriously, I didn't notice until now. So I suppose that I have to post my 1st post on that thread, right?
  3. Could you post me the link of that thread? Because I tried searching for it and it appeared nothing.
  4. That is the most ridiculously contradicting statement. "It's not a realignment thread, but a thread to show how a realignment would look"? And the "for fun" is exactly the type of realignment that the thread at the top of the page was created for.Huh? I didn't mean to make things worse. I thought of creating this thread would be worth it so I don't have to put some "dream conference" posts on the real "conference realignment" threads on this forum.
  5. Just saw some thread from a different forum, and I was wondering if I can spread it here. About this thread, it is for all of you who have an idea about how some athletic conferences (D-I FBS, D-I FCS, D-II, D-III) should be. If YOU were a staff member of the NCAA, would you want many conferences will at least 12 teams each? If so, this is the thread for you! Keep in mind that this is NOT a realignment thread, it's only to show ideas of how the realignment would look like, but for fun. For example, how about a revival of the Metro Conference (but as a football-sponsoring all-sports league)? Version A: North/South: Metro North: Cincinnati Louisville Memphis UNC-Charlotte South Carolina Virginia Tech Metro South: Florida State Georgia Tech Southern Mississippi South Florida Tulane UAB Version B: East/West: Metro East: Florida State Georgia Tech UNC-Charlotte South Carolina South Florida Virginia Tech Metro West: Cincinnati Louisville Memphis Southern Mississippi Tulane UAB Summary: This fan-based dream conference is based on like MOST of the old union of C-USA back in 95-96 (Cincinnati, Louisville, Memphis, Southern Mississippi and Tulane), but with Florida State, Georgia Tech and South Carolina (from the ACC and SEC respectively), UAB, South Florida and UNC-Charlotte once former non-football schools who were also part of that old union and eventually started sponsoring football, and Virginia Tech a former football affiliate of an FBS conference while belonging to a non-football conference for other sports. Lemme know yours by posting here. J-LOG
  6. Any of you board members a fan of NCAA D-I FBS college football? Just wanna say the following: Prior to 1991, ALL FBS (Div. I-A) conferences had a maximum number of upto at least 9-10 schools, plus tens of Indy schools along the way, and NEITHER didn't have a conference championship game (or in short, CCG). In the 1991-92 season, the SEC became the first conference to establish one with the additions of Arkansas (former SWC full member) and South Carolina (former Metro non-football full member with Indy football). In the 1996-97 season, the Big 12 (then the Big 8) started to have their CCG with the merged additions of the "top leftovers" of the defunct SWC (making references to the 4 Texas schools); while the "mid-major leftovers" (Rice, SMU and TCU) joined the WAC, who also made their own CCG (which it was short-lived because most of the longtime WAC schools parted ways to create their own conference); and leaving Houston to join C-USA. In the 1997-98 season, the MAC also started a CCG after re-adding Northern Illinois and Marshall. Almost a decade had passed, and due to conference realignment changes on the 2005-06 season, the ACC and C-USA also sponsored their first CCG's respectively. Recently on this decade, specifically in 2011, the Big 12 CCG came to an end when Nebraska joined the Big TEN and Colorado (along with Utah from the MW) joined the Pac-10 (now as the Pac-12), leading both of these conferences to respectively have their own CCG's. But presently, other conferences have started to plan their own CCG's in the future as long as they get the requirement when it comes to expansion, which the key number is 12. For instance, the MW recently started their own CCG (with fb-affiliate Hawaii, after the additions of San Jose State and Utah State). However, the conference in question for a CCG at this moment are the Sun Belt and The American (or AAC). But all aside, my point is that the "Power 5" conferences are getting more power-hungry when it comes to have like over 14 members. The key question is: "When those conferences reach over 14 to 16 to 18 members, will there be possible splits to bring small conferences; just like what happened to the WAC after the 1998-99 season, resulting the creation of the MW?" You be the judge!
  7. Simple, I basically searched and decided to curiously post.
  8. Love some of your jersey/uniform concepts. Keep it up. Hope you'll plan some more in the future.

  9. Love the concept jersey design. In my opinion, this should had been the new jersey's modifications for 2013, not the current ones.
  10. Fabulous concept designs Ben. But I have one curious question. Which American football jersey template did you use to develop those concepts? I personally love that design!
  11. No prob. And sounds fair enough. By the way, could you try to make a remake of the Terps jerseys from 2004 to 2009, but under your style? And using the number/letter font of the Terps jerseys from 99 to 2002? It would be so legit before Maryland made their current jersey set (although I gotta admit that their new and current letter/number font looks so legit)!
  12. Lovely concepts Ben5. Although this is an old forum topic, but I gotta love it, despite the Terps' current uniform design set. However, it would be better if the numbers would be on the shoulders and not on the sleeves. Plus, I would expect a black jersey/pants as well.
  13. Any of you members a fan of American football jersey sleeve styles? If so, which do you prefer the best? wide-spreaded mid-sized loose sleeve jerseys (which are common for most quarterbacks like Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Phillip Rivers, Kirk Cousins, Christian Ponder, Matt Hasselback, Kurt Warner, John Elway, Vinny Testaverde, Brett Favre, Dan Marino, Jake Plummer, etc. (NFL) or Zac Taylor, Joey Harrington, Scott Frost (NCAA)), the wide baggy-ish, mid-sized tight sleeve jerseys (which are mostly common to most offensive/defensive skill position players (i.e.: running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, linebackers, defensive backs) and to some quarterbacks like Ken Dorsey or Chris Weinke) or short, tight micro-sleeve jerseys (which are mostly common for specifically offensive/defensive linemen)? Too bad that I couldn't make a poll for you guys to discuss and stuff, but feel free to reply your answers here. In my case, I top-personally like the wide-spreaded loose sleeves and the baggy-like mid-sized tight sleeves. It's just me.
  14. Look up at the top. Where? I tried searching it before making this thread and there was nothing related.
  15. Now sure if this board has a thread or topic that discusses about conference realignment concepts made by and based by the fans; you know, dream conferences. But here's a start: Here's my sample of a dream conference based from the defunct Metro Conference: i.) - Charter members Cincinnati (75-76 to 90-91) Louisville (75-76 to 94-95) Memphis (75-76 to 90-91) Tulane (75-76 to 94-95) Georgia Tech (75-76 to 78-79) Florida State (76-77 to 90-91) Virginia Tech (79-80 to 94-95) Southern Mississippi (82-83 to 94-95) South Carolina (83-84 to 90-91) ii.) - Possible expansion candidates: South Florida (91-92 to 94-95) North Carolina-Charlotte (91-92 to 94-95) Alabama-Birmingham Central Florida Houston Lemme know your opinions or thoughts or ideas. Feel free to share them.
  16. Great football jersey concepts on the D-I non-football schools like Gonzaga and CoC, etc. How about a concept of the Denver Pioneers or certain schools from the Old Big East (DePaul Blue Devils, St. John's (N.Y.) Red Storm, Providence Friars) or even the Saint Louis Billikens.
  17. Love your jersey concepts. Great work.

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

  19. As a fellow FSU Seminoles fan, I love your concept BKKnight, whether if it's black, white or garnet red. Plus, I have a similar idea related with the 09 Pro Combat design (with the unique number font which I don't know what's it called yet). Not sure if you can try to design it yet, but my suggestion is to nearly do the same, but with the 2007 San Diego Chargers "bolt stripes" that were in between the shoulder and the sleeve parts. But these bolt stripes should be placed by the Seminole spear. I'll try to design one via manually and show it to you one day to make sure that you get what I mean.
  20. As far as I'm concern, for what I understand is that you also don't know the name of the font from the numner 7. And how did you use the jersey template via Paint? Because I'm trying to make a concept of my own similar to yours or anyone else's.
  21. Great concepts, especially the FSU ones. By the way, which font type did you use on its numbers?
  22. Fabulous stuff Brave-Bird. Which program do you use to design them?
  23. Wanna talk about re-branding the uniforms? How about changing the number and letter font by using the style it was used on the 2009 Nike Pro Combat Uniforms. And use the Seminole feather as the stripes on the pants, as well as on the part on the shoulders (something similar to the 2007 San Diego Chargers jersey design). If I had a drawing, I could had shown what I'm talking about.
  24. At least someone agrees with me. But I hope they use this as a future uniform set to be mirrored by that PCR.
  25. Love your concepts @bigmike. But I personally like the Florida State concept. Those numbers look legit! By the way, how do you design those? And do you know what's the name of the Noles' number font? Because I've always wanted to make a concept design of my own.
