  1. I'm almost positive the new logo will be a dog. The organization has seemed to step up on the Dawg Pound branding/marketing/whatever recently, especially with having a live dog for a mascot. Having an primary logo of a dog would be the logical* next step. *then again, this is the same organization that thought Money Manziel was a good idea
  2. Bowling Green's would look a lot better with different logos. You should use the primary logo or a script Bowling Green on the front, and anything but the interlocking BG on the sides. I'd also rather see a total brown out for the road: brown helmet, brown sweater, brown pants, brown socks. As for the Nike debate, Bowling Green is a Nike school. Ferris is Under Armor, so I'm assuming they wouldn't wear Nike for hockey. I'm not sure about the rest.
  3. My computer somehow isn't letting me post pictures, but I'll add: Eastern Michigan Ferris State Lake Superior State Dayton (again)
  4. The blue jersey would look better with orange shoulders. The white jersey looks excellent.
  5. OK, how can you - an Ohio State fan - say in good faith that college football is more fun when Michigan is good? My friend who's an Ohio State fan said the same thing the other day; it makes the big game at the end of the year more interesting when both teams are good, especially the year they were ranked #1 and #2 in the country, and the game was won by a field goal.
  6. Well, in that case, MLB teams should have 162 unis. The Tigers should have about 180 when you factor in October.
  7. Absolutely not. But I agree with 29texan on the last one.
  8. I always liked that look! They should go back to it, like Dave Logan here. My preference would be white pants at home and orange on the road, with no alternates.
  9. The deed is done: Nike has ruined the Browns. In April of 2015 we shall learn of the extent of the damage.
  10. NIU's all-white Storm Trooper set is so boring. They need to go with a Darth Vader style. I think they have one of the best logos; I wished they put this on the helmets: Right now they either use just the NIU or just the huskie. The black stripes and facemask ruined it for me. It clashed with the red and white jersey/pants badly, in my opinion.
  11. Rich Rod's strategy (which Hoke has adopted) was to take the fastest guy he could buy (or "recruit" as some call it) and throw him in at QB. This QB would then lob up every pass and make his receivers go up and steal the ball from the defensive backs. This strategy worked fine against Eastern Michigan and Purdue, but once they started playing decent teams, it became painfully obvious to the Michigan faithful that the guy they trust to throw the ball should posses the ability to throw the ball. Combine that with Rich Rod's strategy of using a coin toss to determine whether the glee club or chess team should suit up as his defense, and he was driven out of town as if Henry Ford set up shop in Detroit specifically to supply nearby Ann Arbor. Hoke, now in a similar position, is such a lock to be fired at the end of the season, his lame "duck" status has made him the leading candidate to coach the District 5 pee-wee hockey team in St. Paul, Minnesota. Running QBs can work, but they still need to be able to actually, you know, throw the ball. Turning a traditional smashmouth power-running team into a full-fledged spread offense in one summer isn't effective, either, and Michigan looks like they're still adjusting from Lloyd Carr's philosophies.
  12. I was at the game- those helmets looked awful. The jersey/pants looked great, but the helmet couldn't quite decide if it wanted to be a throwback or modern.
  13. 48 potential combinations for 12-14 games in a season?!? Why?!?
  14. I always thought it was a candlestick. Add me to that club...and the worst part was that Indiana was one of the teams I rooted for as a kid! I thought it was a cactus.
  15. I had no idea what "Ubs" were until I started following baseball. Now I know that an Ub is a perpetual cellar dweller.
  16. Bowling Green joins the mass exodus from Adidas! We switched to Nike yesterday, but it should be a while before all our Adidas crap is gone. I also read on Twitter that orange and brown is easier to get from Nike due to their existing deal with the Cleveland Browns. EDIT: Found this quote:
  17. I would keep what you have, except I would put one of the Florida teams in the west and send Memphis to the east so each conference only has to travel to one outlier in their division. I would also make a clause that guaranteed the Florida teams would play each other in cross-divisional play.
  18. The schools within the East and West are pretty close to each other, but the East and West are pretty far apart on their own. Houston, SMU, and Tulane compared to UMass, UCONN, and Army are half the country apart. Trips like that aren't something a school wants to make on a routine basis, especially the non-revenue sports.
  19. Agreed. The Browns need a formal wordmark.
  20. Try swapping the red and black on the bird. I think it would look better with a darker band around the eye.
  21. No it hasn't, and no they won't. I suspect one will pop up, but nothing will come of it. I really can't help but feel like there are so many people following this that don't understand football and how routine cutting a 7th round draft pick is.
