  1. Two days late again here, but let's wrap up the series with a Utah update and Colorado.

    • Changed the stripe on the black sleeves to red.

    Colorado Buffaloes

    • This is a combination of their old set and the new. The Northwest stripes return to the sleeves, and the TV numbers are moved to the shoulders.

    Thanks for all the C&C everyone! And thus ends my first fully completed series.


  2. Sorry this is a day late. The forum was down when I checked yesterday evening and...well...the election...so...

    Quick update for Oregon State:

    • Helmet stripes thinned out. It looks a lot better now.

    Utah's up next.

    I am a really big fan of Utah's throwback. I set out to modernize it slightly with updated logos and numbers. The red helmet becomes the primary helmet however. The white helmet is eliminated completely. Honestly I wanted to just keep it at red and white, but I decided to throw in a blackout set because, really, blackout night at Rice-Eccles is fantastic B).

    Horrible mistake. Ruined the great momentum this season had been building.

    My thoughts exactly. Not only is this the first time they will be wearing anything besides gold/purple/gold at home (they're 5-0 in those), but they're also only 2-2 all time with those W-flag helmets.

    Helmet stripes look a little big for Oregon State, but that may just be a matter of personal taste.  Everything else looks good though (love the orange pants) 

    I thought that might be an issue. It seems to me like they've shrinked the stripe recently. That can definitely be changed.

    For OSU, the stripes on the orange jersey should be black-white-black so that it is consistent with the other two jerseys.

    That is what you would think, however, that's not what they currently do.

    Like that WSU set a lot. I don't really have any nitpicks on it.

     

    Definitely not where I thought you'd go with UCLA other than the Clarendon. Not totally disappointed per se, but not sure about it. I think the home and away sets could benefit from thicker outlines on the jersey numbers. I'd consider bringing back one of their shadowed number looks to better incorporate the navy third color. The NOB looks awfully tiny compared to the numbers, especially in comparison to your WSU set. I can see where you were going with the pant stripes but I just don't think it works, especially on the home set with the navy outward stripes. Looks too jumbled IMO. Overall I don't think this one is as strong as your other sets. It's a good start but it's not quite there yet. I may be in the minority, but that's how it struck me. I like the socks though, they're pretty snazzy.

     

    I have family ties to U-Dub, been to tons of Huskies games over the years (Gramps had nice season tickets) so this was what I was most looking forward to. Now here I like the inclusion of the pant stripes, except I think you should put 'em on all of 'em for consistency. The arched double stripes are a nice touch, I went to several games in '02 so that's a good memory spark; I think I was at the Oregon State game that year. The away numbers are a different weight than the others. Again the NOB feels too small. For my personal taste the purple is a little too blue (I know that's what they're going with these days) and the gold is a tad on the light side, but it does look modern and sharp. I really like the choice of ditching the black though, this is a much more refined and classic look for a university football program with plenty of rich history.

     

    As I always say, trash can is near, but hopefully some of the C&C is helpful. Keep it up, I really enjoy your work.

    Yeah the outlines could be thicker. I'm honestly not a fan of drop shadows, it's too 90's for me. 

    I guess the pant stripes are debatable. I didn't realize they don't have them right now

    And the NOB is small because that was how the template is made. I could enlarge it I guess. I didn't make the template.

     

    I'll keep working on the Bruins. Here's their crosstown rival, USC.

    USC Trojans

    If if ain't broke, don't fix it. Simple enough.


  6. One update and one new concept. First, Cal.

    Cal Golden BearsJust changed shoulder claws to blue with a yellow outline. I also change the claws on the pants to match the jersey.

    Next up, the Bruins.

    UCLA Bruins

    UCLA isn't that hard. Just use Clarendon numbers, and everything else is fine. I also added a navy jersey as an alternate.

     

    Let me know what you think.

    I hadn't looked at it that way. I was more meaning on the shoulders and pants, the pointy barbed tip is only on one side which i would say is either of the side prongs of the trident. I was looking at the main, longer piece of the trident that is barbed on both sides. I was thinking if you added the barb on each side, it might look more like the trident, if that makes sense.

    I see what you mean. However, they've used that version since the pitchfork became the main logo. The reason they use that instead of a two-side fork is because the logo is a trident. This is supposed to be one of the forks on that trident.

     

    I'll get a Cal update later. For now, here's Wazzu.

    Washington State

    Here's an unpopular opinion: WSU's uniforms are awesome. The colors blend well for me - that is, when they use the colors, which was my main goal here, to restore the colors. I also love that new alternate they used for Oregon. Sorry, but I love it.
