  1. Back on my previous post, I made a super-conference realignment based on the P5 conferences (including the old Big East) http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/99972-the-pointless-realignment-outpost/?p=2341480 Oh, I almost forgot to mention that the format I realigned was prior to the 2011-12 season. Now I have made a 2nd super-conference format of aligning the current Go5 FBS conferences (including the former WAC) also prior to the 2010-11 season:

    1.) East Coast Region

    1.1.) East Coast - North: Massachusetts*, Temple, Army, Marshall, East Carolina, Navy, Old Dominion*, James Madison*

    1.2.) East Coast - South: Appalachian St.*, UNC-Charlotte*, Georgia Southern*, Georgia St.*, UCF, FAU, FIU, USF

    2.) South Region

    2.1.) South - East: Southern Miss, South Alabama*, Troy, UAB, Louisiana Tech, Tulane, ULL, ULM

    2.2.) South - West: Houston, Rice, UTSA*, Texas St.*, Tulsa, North Texas, SMU, TCU

    3.) Midwest Region

    3.1.) Midwest - East: Buffalo, Kent St., Akron, Ohio, Ball St., Toledo, Bowling Green, Miami (Oh.)

    3.2.) Midwest - West: Arkansas St., Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee St., Memphis, Northern Illinois, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan

    4.) West Region

    4.1.) West - Pacific: Hawaii, Fresno St., San Diego St., San Jose St., Nevada, UNLV, Boise St., Idaho

    4.2.) West - Mountain: Utah, Utah St., Wyoming, Colorado St., Air Force, New Mexico, New Mexico St., UTEP

    The only team left out on this realignment without a conference is BYU. Plus, the addition of USF from the P5 group; and Utah & TCU still remain in the Go5.

    Your thoughts guys? Happy New Years 2015!


  2. Here's my take on a College Football postseason.

    • 32 teams (10 conference champions and 22 at-large) compete in a single-elimination bracket format.
    • Duration: approximately five weeks (second weekend of December to third weekend of January).
    • Each of the first 28 games will take place in a bowl site that is determined chiefly by the geographical location of the highest seeded teams (much like the NCAA basketball tournament).
    • The semifinal and final would operate exactly as it does now, with the two semifinal games rotating between the predetermined large bowls, and the final being played in a predetermined site.
    • Eight bowl games (or greater if more are added) would exist for non-playoff qualifying schools. Currently, those bowl games are the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, the Raycom Media Camelia Bowl, the Boca Raton Bowl, the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl, the Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman, and the GoDaddy Bowl.
    • Below is an example of what a 2015 version of the format outlined above might look like. (Disclaimer: I seeded the teams yesterday, so the seeds do not reflect any of the conference championship games and follow the Week 15 College Football Playoff Rankings.)
    Seeds (all-caps denotes conference champion):
    • 1s: Alabama (1), Oregon (2), Florida State (3), Ohio State (4)
    • 2s: Baylor (5), TCU (6), Mississippi State (7), Michigan State (8)
    • 3s: Ole Miss (9), Arizona (10), Kansas State (11), Georgia Tech (12)
    • 4s: Georgia (13), UCLA (14), Arizona State (15), Missouri (16)
    • 5s: Clemson (17), Wisconsin (18), Auburn (19), Boise State (20)
    • 6s: Louisville (21) Utah (22), LSU (23), USC (24)
    • 7s: Minnesota (25), Nebraska (NR/26), Oklahoma (NR/27), Marshall (NR/28)
    • 8s: Memphis (NR/29), Duke (NR/30), Northern Illinois (NR/31), Georgia Southern (NR/32)
    • First six out: Colorado State, Air Force, Cincinnati, UCF, West Virginia, Stanford

    Awesome format and projection. However, it would be better if the seedings were like a 'regional basis' (like in the NCAA tournaments of other sports like basketball).

    For instance, it would have 4 regionals, with the highest-seeded teams being their respective #1 seeds, based on the following:

    a.) East or East Coast (ACC, AAC [part], C-USA [part], SBC [part])

    1.) Florida St.

    2.) Georgia Tech

    3.) Clemson

    4.) Louisville

    5.) Duke

    6.) Marshall

    7.) Memphis

    8.) Georgia Southern

    b.) Midwest (Big TEN, MAC, Big XII [part])

    1.) Ohio St.

    2.) Michigan St.

    3.) Mizzou

    4.) Wisconsin

    5.) Minnesota

    6.) Northern Illinois

    7.) Nebraska

    8.) Cincinnati

    c.) South (SEC, AAC [part], C-USA [part], SBC [part], Big XII [part])

    1.) Alabama

    2.) Baylor

    3.) TCU

    4.) Mississippi St.

    5.) Ole Miss

    6.) Georgia

    7.) Auburn

    8.) Oklahoma

    d.) West (Pac-12, MW)

    1.) Oregon

    2.) Arizona

    3.) UCLA

    4.) Arizona St.

    5.) Utah

    6.) USC

    7.) Boise St.

    8.) Colorado St.

    Your thoughts?


  3. Here's a different format of aligning the current Power-5 FBS conferences (plus the former old Big East):

    1.) Atlantic Region

    1.1.) Atlantic - North: Connecticut, Boston College, Syracuse, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Penn St., West Virginia, Maryland

    1.2.) Atlantic - South: Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, N.C. State, Duke, Wake Forest, Clemson, South Carolina

    2.) South Region

    2.1.) South - East: Kentucky, Louisville, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Florida, Florida St., Miami

    2.2.) South - West: Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Mississippi St., LSU, Arkansas

    3.) Midwest Region

    3.1.) Midwest - East: Illinois, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Michigan St., Michigan, Ohio St., Purdue, Indiana

    3.2.) Midwest - West: Minnesota, Iowa, Iowa St., Nebraska, Mizzou, Kansas, K-State, Colorado

    4.) West Region

    4.1.) West - Pacific: California, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Washington, Washington St., Oregon, Oregon St.

    4.2.) West - Desert: Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma St., Arizona, Arizona St.

    The only team left out on this realignment would be South Florida (heading into the Go5, along with TCU and Utah).

    Your thoughts guys? P.S.: Hoping to make another variation of this soon, but with the Go5 FBS schools.

    So what about that team in south bend, Indiana? Your surely not moving them to the Go5 are you?

    Of course, not. Notre Dame would stay as the only FBS Independent in the P-5 (or P-4) group. The only team I didn't add within that core was South Florida (they would be downgraded to the Go5).


  4. Thanks for all the compliments, everyone! I started on the concepts over a year ago, so it's been a LONG time in the making. And as I said, it was a fun series to do, and definitely a challenge to not only get through 128 teams, but make them all unique.

    And having been working on this for over a year, I WILL NOT be doing any more CFB concepts...I need a break!

    Regarding the templates, I'm thinking about releasing them. I'll make sure that everyone knows if and when I do.

    And lastly, feel free to keep commenting on any of the teams! I'm definitely willing to go back and make tweaks.

    mbannon, Well-deserved and well-earned with your full concept jersey project collection. You surely have put a great feat on redesigning 128 teams (excluding UNC Charlotte yet) based on your vision. But for now, enjoy your break after a longtime hard-working effort on your part for putting this series into a reality. When you have a chance to return back for the tweaks, hope you'll make them with a blast!

    For instance, I'm about to suggest you on the FSU concept. The original one you did looks amazing (with the white jersey having garnet numbers with gold trim, which was later fixed by the FSU equipment staff). But I was hoping for the black 'Unconquered' jersey that it should have the following small fixes:

    * Same sleeve color design as on the white and garnet jerseys

    * Garnet numbers with gold trim (same goes for its wordmark letters to match up)

    And if possible, for the garnet and white jerseys, hope you could try add a black drop shadow trim on the numbers within the white and garnet jerseys; but a gold drop shadow trim on the garnet numbers with white trim within the black jersey.

    2.) South Region

    2.1.) South - East: Kentucky, Louisville, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Florida, Florida St., Miami

    2.2.) South - West: Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Mississippi St., LSU, Arkansas

    3.) Midwest Region

    3.1.) Midwest - East: Illinois, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Michigan St., Michigan, Ohio St., Purdue, Indiana

    3.2.) Midwest - West: Minnesota, Iowa, Iowa St., Nebraska, Mizzou, Kansas, K-State, Colorado

    4.) West Region

    4.1.) West - Pacific: California, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Washington, Washington St., Oregon, Oregon St.

  6. Amazing job on the concepts mbannon. Looking forward to your next set of concepts, in regards with the Sun Belt schools. So far, my faves from you on this topic are Boise State, Northern Illinois, and San Jose State. I also like the Florida State one because of the garnet numbers on the white jerseys and the white numbers on the garnet jerseys. But it would have been better if the 'Unconquered' black jersey had garnet numbers with gold trim, plus the striping colors on their sleeves should be the same as the home and road ones.


  7. Fabulous job with the concepts on the 1st 4 AAC schools. To review each one:

    a.) Cincy - Looks very perfect. Modern, but traditional at its own right.

    b.) UConn - Looks very fabulous, especially with the wide stripes on the sleeves.

    c.) ECU - Looks very amazing, but it would be better if the number font would be based on the previous ECU wordmark logo, such as:

    5124253647_8d17ff9729_z.jpg

    d.) Houston - Looks pretty cool, especially with the alternate helmet (the one with the cougar logo). But I wish it would have the former number/letter font from the Kevin Kolb early days, like this:

    hou-06-07-redwhite-toddspoth-620x886.jpg

    Can't wait for the rest of the schools' concepts.


  8. The normal home & road uniforms of Michigan look very sleek and modern, despite showing its traditional ways. I like it to be honest. But with the TV numbers on the shoulders, it'll be just right. And if there was combos, it would be awesome to see an all-blue for an alternate home, and a white-over-blue for an alternate road.


  9. I'm going to finish the schools with actual football teams, but I actually am going to make teams without football teams because that actually would be pretty interesting but I'm not gonna do it for a while until maybe the end of this threads run (the final thing ill do) and for the combos I have to do some remodifications again with the templates to add multiple pants and helmets into one image just because it takes so long to create the combos.

    Sounds fair enough to me with everything you've specifically said. It'll be worth the wait, and in the end of the day, you deserve to earn all the credit to put effort on those concept designs.


  10. Great job on the re-modified tweaks of your concepts. Despite not having each team's complete uniform combo sets (just to save space) only to rely on the simple important ones for now, they look pretty sleeker than ever before. Keep it up! P.S.: No UTA & UALR yet? lol I'm kidding. I know that those 2 schools are non-football, but since they're also part of the Sun Belt, I think it would be fun on how their football uniform sets would look like. ^.^


  11. I have a jersey template request. Can anybody who's an expert on concept jersey designs can create or develop a jersey template based on the NFL Elite 51 template, BUT with the Peyton Manning-style QB loose sleeves? No matter which photo media/vector format it shall be, I just wish that anyone can create it, which is all I ask. Thanks in advance.


  12. Not sure if this is the topic to upload concepts that are not sports-related. But here is a logo I designed by hand:

    nLCustomFanLogo.jpg

    It's about a gaming community I support called newLEGACYinc. You can check them out at:

    http://facebook.com/ilikenewlegacy

    They specify on playing wrestling games, but sometimes they play sports games; and all in a parody-like comedy manner.

    P.S.: The logo is based on one of the L.A. Kings' alternate logos, with the alphabet based on the FSU Glades Bold font.
