    @dont care  Ideally I agree wouldn't want them to leave the pewter helmet but it is unique to them. But as we all know the NFL's one helmet rule has effectively eliminated Bruce so moving to a white lid would open things back up to throwbacks .I'd  Pewter, red & creamsicle tattered stripes and make the logo normal sized.

    @Ice_Cap your concept is pretty on point with what i'm thinking just switch out the black for pewter or at least keep it on the uniform with the big stripes and facemask. 

    If you go with a white helmet I think orange is the better option as the primary uniform color. Red jerseys with white numbers and orange or black trim wouldn't look as good as orange with red trim on the white numbers.

    Those sleeves are miles better, maybe if they outlined the tv numbers in silver it would be fine 

    I'd prefer they go with the 1970-2007 design which had the large white shoulder numbers. Silver outline wouldn't help those shoulder numbers.

    This is exactly what I think, too. The pattern for redesigns in the current NFL seems to be like a pendulum swinging. If the uniform getting a make-over was fairly traditional/plain, the redesign goes more to the modern (this happened in Tampa, somewhat in Tennessee, and with the initial Cleveland and Jacksonville redesigns) but if the uniform getting reworked was an already derided modern set, the redo will be in the other direction (Minnesota, arguably in Detroit, and with the second go around in Miami and Jacksonville). My guess is that with the rightful hate this current mess has gotten, along with Cleveland's self-image as a tough, no nonsense, blue-collar town, the new uniform will get a lot of the same complaints on this board that the Jaguars have been getting. 


    I think it will be fairly plain (they will say "clean"... that's the current buzzword for plain), single layer numbers, definitely a custom font but one based off a block. Stripe-less jerseys and pants, especially plain white pants, would not surprise me .  One thing I would most definitely predict is that there will be no rubber stamp return of any previous look. No return to the 70's, 80's 90's, no "just make the color rush the new uniform", no quick and easy return.  That just isn't how these things are done these days.  That would be seen as a missed marketing opportunity.   And I guess logically, it would be.

    If they listen to the fans, there should be sleeve stripes. Something along the lines of Florida's or Ohio State's jerseys.

    Oregon going chrome/dark green/dark green for the Rose Bowl:

    These are also new chrome helmets, different from the ones worn earlier this season against UW and for the last few seasons. Instead of silver wings, the wings on these are Nightmare green, as is the facemask. The whole combo is essentially a fauxback to the 2012 Rose Bowl combo:



    Leading up to this reveal, there was a lot of noise about them possibly going with ‘94 throwbacks, and I personally was thinking they might just go yellow/green/yellow, so I’m pretty surprised to see this. I’m a bit disappointed, as they’ve already worn the full Nightmare green set twice, but I do like the addition of the new chrome helmets, and the whole combo should look pretty sharp.

    If this were a true night game they would look good. Since most of the game is in daylight it will look horrible. Monochrome most likely for both teams but Wisconsin should wear red pants.

    The fiesta bowl trophy is so ugly it's beautiful. And one of these teams should wear purple on the 12th. They won't, but they should. 

    Only way that would've happened is if Nike unveiled something for everyone other than Ohio State. I just wonder how awful LSU's end zone is going to look.

    How the hell is that a personal foul for roughing the punter?  The guy slowed up, and the punter's momentum took him into him.  The announcers saying that it's a "clear personal foul" seems ridiculous to me.  If I cared about Ohio State, I'd be pretty jacked right now.

    And to add to it, the punter pulled on his helmet. That's more dangerous than him running into the kicker.  Worst call was targeting. Not because it was wrong, but because if he was a RB, they don't call it. There are different rules for QBs.

    IIRC D/G-League always had one template for every team. Same with WNBA except first years with Champion when they had three templates.


    Least favorite:

    - One Helmet Rule (with no custom facemask rule)

    - NBA uniform naming system

    - Trend of Roundel logos



    - Trend of retro uniforms

    - new socks system in NBA (I mean they didn't white or black anymore, but fit to uniform color)

    The fact whole leagues are stuck with one template annoys me to no end. Once adidas took over the WNBA, they started that move to one template. At least with G League teams they have different number fonts and wordmarks.

    Option 2: Remove the logo from the Jersey, and change the Shoulder Stripe to a Sleeve Stripe, keeping the Numbers in the shoulders, and allowing them to grow in size since they are oddly small on Nike’s VU Template. Keep the Pointed aspect to be unique and traditional with simple striping.

    This would work, just copy the insert that the Chargers use.

    Do the Panthers even really need TV numbers anymore? They've shrunk so much over time that they're definitely not functional in any manner anyway. If you really think about it, the entire concept of TV numbers almost feels obsolete now regardless.

    To be fair, that's probably the best option if they're going to stay that small. I believe the NFL rule that primary uniforms are required to have them is still in effect though.

    You have looked at Nebraska as of late, have you?

    Nebraska is changing over from one system to a new one. Miami wasn't. Nebraska's biggest issue currently is not having a quarterback that can run what Scott Frost wants to do as an offense. Miami's issues are the same ones that got it in trouble in the past. Too many people involved with program decisions that don't know what they are doing.

    The end zones Have been like that the last few seasons. It is bush league in my opinion. 

    It's better than the Idaho Potatoes Bowl which is just the Boise State field and a couple logos slapped down. Sometimes they haven't even bothered to do that. Boise's swapped out the field two times since then but still stitched the logos in instead of allowing themselves the ability to swap out the paint. As for the Quicklane Bowl, this beats when it was the Motor City Bowl and the car companies were all placed in the end zone instead of a school name. They also add conference logos as well. And with the possibility that te Lions could host games the following Sunday, just having the team's name, even if only one color, is a  step up from other bowls.

    I've been to all 14 new mexico bowls. It is fairly low budget compared to others. They at least color the "NEW MEXICO" from grey to yellow so it matches official state flag colors. When field was grass, they usually did school color checkered end zones. 

    The Independence Bowl does the same thing, somewhat, though in actuality those end zones look like that year round instead of just a repaint for the game. the only addition is the bowl logos. Watching the Division II Championship in McKinney, they played at a high school stadium and the normal championship field logos couldn't be placed on the field because the McKinney ISD logo and the wordmarks in the end zone are stitched in. Only the NCAA bubble was able to be laid out. For 2020 and 2021, the Division III championship will be at Tom Benson Hall of Fame stadium in Canton and I'm guessing it will be the same setup there unless someone pays to swap out the turf. That probably won't happen though. I know the Hall of Fame was happy to rename the stadium in honor of Benson, but I don't know why they couldn't have done the usual step of adding a wordmark on the field similar to how it's done at the Alamodome or Gillette Stadium. 

    McKinney's three high schools are now playing football in the district's new $69.9 million football stadium.

    I'll just put this out there but when I went to school at Alabama I knew maybe 30 or 40 people from Nashville and the metro area and that was much longer ago in time than I'd care to admit.  Tennessee's had the University of Alabama vanity license plate for at least twenty years now.  I'm also sure that as Nashville's expanded more UA grads moved there with it being one of the largest cities in the region so there being a lot of Alabama fans in Nashville isn't that surprising (bandwagon jumpers aside.)  Also doesn't help that UT's been a dumpster fire for the better part of the last decade and Vandy's only good every now and then.  There's a decent amount of Ole Miss fans in Memphis though with Oxford being about an hour or so away.

    It's surprising how many of the larger colleges have license plate deals in Texas. All of the Big XII and SEC West and most of the SEC East are available here.

    So this logo was killed by the public but then resurrected a year later.


    The Calgary Hitmen unveiled their name and original logo in 1994 and it was extremely popular with early merchandise selling quickly, but it was just as quickly deemed "too violent". 



    The Akron Aeros had a similar issue with their original name, the Akron Blast.  Their issue was tone deafness, as the name Blast was supposed to be in reference to a space shuttle taking off and an allusion to Judith Resnick, one of the astronauts of the Challenger that dies in the 1986 accident, and who was a resident of Akron. The team backtracked on the name of the team and the mascot, whose original name was Kaboom, before changing over to Orbit.

    For the Philadelphia 76ers I reduced the colours to the most christmas-y I could. I removed the blue and focused instead on parchment hue they use for the city edition. I am slighty concerned that it makes the uniform looks off-white, which was not really my intention. Now, I really liked the classic edition they revealed back in august which predominantly uses a “Seventy Sixers” wordmark design, so I tried to copy(horrible attempt) it with a christmas inspired font. 
    One of the most recognizable features of the Sixers uniform are the 13 stars, symbolizing the original british 13 colonies - I turned them into snow crystals, and I removed the piping to keep it as simple as possible. And for the waistband logo I used a christmas bell.
    I really wanted to include green and I did experiment with it, however it didnt not look like the Sixers at all so I kept the concept to red, white and parchment. The numerals in use are exactly the same as on the Raptors.
    Now, the jock tag text was kinda hard to nail down. I really wanted something Philadelphia-inspired but I couldnt really find any short sayings from famous persons from Philly. So I did the Brotherly Love and replaced Brotherly with Christmas. All in all, a simpe christmas edition, and hopefully fun!

    I was aiming to finish Clippers and Lakers, and I still might, but for now I have set my sight on continuing creating concept sets for the remaining NBA teams left. Maybe I'll finish them in time for next christmas. 


    Philadelphia 76ers Christmas Edition Uniform Concept



    All comments and criticsms are greatly appreciated! Merry christmas!


    I would add a slight arch to the Seventy Sixers wordmark and enlarge the jersey numbers on all of these since they are pretty thin. that would make them easier to read on TV and they won't look as huge as Oregon's numbers do.

    That’s not how it works, though.  The owners aren’t going to stop asking for public funds just because expansion fees are held artificially low. 

    And on the contrary, anyone who can pay $400M will have a harder time asking for public money because they can obviously pay for their own damn stadium.  I’m all for it. 

    Charlotte will also play in a football stadium that already meets FIFA standards. That should be enough for the city to tell them no.

    North Dakota State vs James Madison for the FCS Championship. A rematch from last season.


    Call me crazy, but I like JMU's chances of beating the Bison this time around.

    I might root for JMU but I still think the Bison are the ones to win it again. It's interesting to see the dynasties in the lower leagues stretch on so much longer than in FBS. Mount Union hadn't missed a semi-final since 1993!

    Do we know that the (sigh) Bold wanted to affiliate?  Pretty sure Miami FC has no desire to work with Inter Miami. 

    The Bold have taken shots at Austin FC over how they've acted in Austin, especially the two "gentlemen" that were working over city council and the mayor to try to get Columbus down there two years ago. That doesn't mean they would put off working with Austin FC if it helps them in the long run. San Antonio FC would appear to be in that same situation as well, though that animosity came from the fans more than the leadership of the team.
