  1. The last few summers on my site, I take fan ideas for concept uniforms and mock them up. Turns out a Vancouver Grizzlies was a suggestion this past round. (More here if you're interested)
  2. Auburn baseball has added the tri-colored hat to the rotation this season. The Tigers hadn't worn this design since 2013. I loved it then, but don't feel the same today. Something feels off about it, and I typically love tri-colored hats.
  3. I too saw an odd bronze-y color on my work computer, but now at home, both editions look equally grey.
  4. Good gosh that Nike swoosh looks awful on the throwbacks. Also, Pitt Baseball and Softball finally revealed the throwbacks they've been teasing for a few days
  5. This isn't quite as in-line with paid vs unpaid work like much of the other items listed here, but it's just as frustrating. Last night I got word that an Auburn-based Twitter account had posted some work of mine. I take a look, and they had (poorly) slapped a different logo on top of my photo. The base image comes from my site and is the first mockup photo to appear on Google under "auburn basketball court." It's actually an old court, from 2009-10, when Auburn played in the old Coliseum (note the Final Season logos). On top of that, I found a user on an Auburn message board site "blanked out" one of my uniform photos to create a (terrible) template for himself. Even left my logo watermark in the background. I politely asked him not to just color over my photos. I'm very generous with my templates and would be happy to share them with him. He wasn't too respectful with his remarks either. I mentioned I work hard on my product and have built a brand with my site. I check now and see that the thread has been deleted.
  6. I've used this thread to discuss softball uniforms in previous years, so don't be afraid to share em here!
  7. There are a lot of great new uniforms this season. The beveled diamond-rip off Nike logo is going to be a sore thumb on many designs.
  8. I really like this look for TCU. It isn't perfect, but a huge upgrade. The LT collar spikes are nice- maybe a bit too big, though. They go below the nameplate, which is too much. The facemask could be fine all purple. The stripe isn't necessary.
  9. I'm well aware Arizona is a top softball program. Repeating that does nothing to further the discussion. The point originally discussed was the use of Nike Swoosh logos similar to those worn in the CFP being used outside of football.
  10. Not football, but interesting that Nike is now offering a diamond-like Swoosh logo to non CFP teams. I mean, it's showing up for the first time outside of that arena on a freaking softball uniform. Is this actually something new or something I missed? If new, will we see non CFP football teams sporting it going forward? (Arizona Softball revealed their whole new line of uniforms today. More tweets like the one below for more info)
  11. I have always thought Syracuse is one of those teams with so much untapped potential. They are the worst looking orange and blue team around and have been for a long time. I think this is a great step in the right direction for Cuse. I love the use of the script on the baseball and basketball uniforms and think it could make an interesting alternate football helmet.
  12. I really like the overall look for West Virginia. I do think the all yellow football uniform looks a bit too much like LSU. Maybe swap the blue and white stripes? The black alts are my least favorite. I thought the collarbone stripes were odd until I saw the inspiration. I think it might be better if you picked black or grey. The coal dust look could look better on field, but feels odd here.
  13. He mentioned Alabama, USC, and Texas, that fall in to the "existed long before nike" criteria
  14. Ohio State, Michigan, Florida, Ohlahoma, Clemson, Georgia, Kansas State, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee. Rarely is a terrible choice of words here. Nike knows how to do classic looks well. In fact, many uniforms look best on the Vapor Untouchable uniform. Also, the schools have the same opportunity to say no to Nike as they do to say yes to any alternate they throw out.
  15. Your pant stripes go above the belt line. Your facemasks aren't even all the same color. We're really doing this again, aren't we?
  16. Thank goodness TCU is upgrading. This current set got old real quick
  17. Part of me was hoping Purdue would wear their chrome helmets, but looks like that won't happen
  18. The bowl game logo on the helmet is a pretty good sign in and of itself.
