  1. UAA has used the same classic, tribal art influenced, logo since 1973 (REF). As stated, the logo is classic; but I was wondering - What if UAA would update their look? What would a Seawolf look like if it were modernized? What is the basis for the Seawolves name? In Haida and Tlingit culture; a seawolf is an enormous creature that preys upon pilot and killer whales. It as four legs with fins, a head similar to a wolf, and a tail like a fish or a whale or sometimes a prehensile tail. (This is not a wolf with an eye patch ) Before becoming the Seawolves, UAA's nickname was the Sourdoughs in reference to old sailors..... good upgrade. After researching historic and contemporary Haida and Tlingit depictions of seawolves I got to drawing out what a new Seawolves logo might look like, so here is my concept logo for the University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolves: Newest idea: 1/15/18 1/16/18 1/17/18 C&C Apreciated
  2. Hi, everyone! After several months of not posting concepts, I'm back! This time around, I'm focusing on college football uniforms, and, just like my previous topic, these concepts were also done in Paint. The templates used here vary, depending on which fits the design. Credits to the Sports Font Database, as well as some previous CFB concepts made by the people of CCSLC, especially mbannon92. Some concepts will utilize their current uniforms and have a few tweaks, while some will be complete redesigns. Also, no Russell Athletic on this concept. I would like to know your comments and reactions from you. Here are the links (new additions are in bold): ACC Atlantic: Boston College | Clemson | Florida State | Louisville | NC State | Syracuse | Wake Forest Coastal: Duke | Georgia Tech | Miami (FL) | North Carolina | Pittsburgh | Virginia | Virginia Tech Big Ten East: Indiana | Maryland | Michigan | Michigan State | Ohio State | Penn State | Rutgers West: Illinois | Iowa | Minnesota | Nebraska | Northwestern | Purdue | Wisconsin Big 12 Baylor | Iowa State | Kansas | Kansas State | Oklahoma | Oklahoma State | TCU | Texas | Texas Tech | West Virginia Pac-12 North: California | Oregon | Oregon State | Stanford | Washington | Washington State South: Arizona | Arizona State | Colorado | UCLA | USC | Utah SEC East: Florida | Georgia | Kentucky | Missouri | South Carolina | Tennessee | Vanderbilt West: Alabama | Arkansas | Auburn | LSU | Mississippi State | Ole Miss | Texas A&M Independents Army | BYU | Liberty | New Mexico State | Notre Dame | UMass The American East: Cincinnati | Connecticut | East Carolina | Temple | UCF | USF West: Houston | Memphis | Navy | SMU | Tulane | Tulsa C-USA East: Charlotte | FAU | FIU | Marshall | Middle Tennessee | Old Dominion | Western Kentucky West: Louisiana Tech | North Texas | Rice | Southern Miss | UAB | UTEP | UTSA MAC East: Akron | Bowling Green | Buffalo | Kent State | Miami (OH) | Ohio West: Ball State | Central Michigan | Eastern Michigan | Northern Illinois | Toledo | Western Michigan Mountain West Mountain: Air Force | Boise State | Colorado State | New Mexico | Utah State | Wyoming West: Fresno State | Hawaii | Nevada | San Diego State | San Jose State | UNLV Sun Belt Appalachian State | Arkansas State | Coastal Carolina | Georgia Southern | Georgia State Louisiana-Lafayette | Louisiana-Monroe | South Alabama | Texas State | Troy
  3. Hello all! With the college football season all but over, it's time to look to the NFL Draft. The Cleveland Browns completed their winless season and have the first overall pick as well as the 4th overall pick (from the Texans). Sam Darnold appears to be on a fast track to Cleveland, so here he is in a Browns jersey. This is my first ever jersey swap and I would love to get all of your guys' thoughts on what i can improve. More guys to come! Thanks for looking. ORIGINAL: JERSEY SWAP:
  4. Army Navy is first, because Army Navy is awesome. More to come, give the helmet you want, if you request. First come, first serve, unless i've already made that helmet. Edit: Decided it would make most sense to add the new ones to this first post.
  5. Hello everybody! After about 2 months of not posting, I'm back! I have looked through a lot of concepts trying to find the perfect basketball concepts for college, I have not found it. Credit to @CAB for his good designs for the teams he did, and SportsFontDatabase. I will be doing the power 5 and the Big East. I will be doing the good teams too but not their whole conference. C&C is always appreiated! You will notice things about this thread: 1. Most of the uniforms are the ones that the currently have, it is very hard to change the uniforms that they have. 2. I have put the sponser on the right side of the uniforms. Enjoy the uniforms! ACC: Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Miami(FL), NC State, North Carolina, Norte Dame, Pitt, Syracuse, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest
  6. I made some wallpaper edits on Adobe Photoshop for every bowl game this season. I used the wordmark logos for every except Ohio State & Wisconsin I downloaded fonts and made their wordmark logo. I like to be as accurate as possible with my helmets so if anyone notices I used the wrong helmet design for any teams please let me know. I will update all helmets if teams announce a different helmet design then the one I uploaded. Any kind of feedback is helpful! http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Alamo_Bowl.jpg.html -Alamo Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Taxslayer_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Taxslayer Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/QuickLane_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Quicklane Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Sugar_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Sugar Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Rose_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Rose Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Peach_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Peach Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/NewOrleans_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -New Orleans Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Outback_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -OutbackBowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/NewMexico_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -New Mexico Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Military_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Military Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/MusicCity_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Music City Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/LasVegas_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Las Vegas Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Liberty_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Liberty Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Independence_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Independence Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Holiday_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Holiday Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Hawaii_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Hawaii Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/HeartofDallas_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Heart of Dallas Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/FosterFarms_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Foster Farms Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Frisco_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Frisco Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Fiesta_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Fiesta Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/DollarGeneral_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Dollar General Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/FamousIdahoPotato_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Famous Idaho Potato Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Cure_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Cure Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/CampingWorld_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Camping World Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Citrus_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Citrus Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Cotton_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Cotton Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Camellia_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Camellia Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Cactus_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Cactus Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/BocaRaton_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Boca Raton Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Birmingham_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Birmingham Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Bahamas_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Bahamas Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Belk_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Belk Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/ArmedForces_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Armed Forces Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Arizona_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Arizona Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Texas_Bowl.jpg.html?o=0 -Texas Bowl http://s287.photobucket.com/user/ktforbes/media/Sun_Bowl.jpg.html?o=1 -Sun Bowl
  7. I am a huge Illini fan and I love Chief Illiniwek but when I saw the Illinois Fighting Illini page, I noticed something weird, There is no primary logo from 1957-1988 and the Chief logo was retired in 2007, so how could it be a secondary logo till 2013... I am baffled and hoping that maybe someone can fix those mistakes.
  8. The College Football Playoff, despite being infinitely better than the BCS, is still flawed. I feel that 4 teams is insufficient, and that the whole bowl system is just a mess. That being said, I have come up with a fix. In this thread, I will post weekly brackets that would line-up with this system (with tweaks I think would happen), and when the final rankings come out, all 16 teams' uniforms for the playoff. So, without further ado, here is my idea for a 16-team playoff field. 1. FBS teams play a 10-game, 11-week regular season schedule, including 1 bye week. (weeks 1-11; Aug, 26-Nov. 4) Schedule includes 6-8 conference games, and 2-4 non-conference FBS games. FBS teams will no longer be allowed to play FCS teams (avoids many strength of schedule ?'s). Week 12 = nationwide bye week/ Army-Navy game (Nov. 11) Week 13 = conference championship games, Selection Sunday (Nov. 16-19) 2. Postseason - Power-5 conference champions receive automatic bid, but do not get home-field or higher seeds. Committee will still select wild cards and seed teams. Week 14 = Playoff BYE; start group-of-5 bowl games. (Nov. 20-30) Week 15 = Playoff round 1; 8 games played at higher seed's home field. (Nov. 30, Dec. 1-2). Week 16 = Playoff round 2; 4 games played as Rose, Sugar, Orange, and Fiesta Bowls (could rotate every year for #1 ovr. seeds, locations, bowls, etc.); Group-of-5 and Power-5 non-playoff bowl games during week, Playoff games Friday night and Saturday (Dec. 4-9) Week 17 = Playoff BYE; Rd. 1 loser bowl games start and Power-5 non-playoff bowl games continue/finish. (December 11-22) Week 18 = Playoff round 3; 2 games played at neutral sites (2018 in Indy, Houston; rotate every year.) (Dec. 23) Week 19 = Playoff BYE; playoff round 2 loser bowls start and finish (Dec. 26- Jan.1) Note: Round 3 losers do not get extra bowl games since they played in the Final 4. Week 20 = Playoff Championship (2018 in Atlanta, rotate every year). (January 8) Uhhhh, edit: I can't figure out how to post an image directly from my computer. I've posted on this before and was able to browse my files, is that not possible anymore? It's been a while since I've posted. Sorry, this is embarassing.
  9. This has basically been a one-man quest. Although I never truly seeked out validation, I like to think I got a measure of it last year when Mississippi State decided to dress like the Patriots for their game in Foxborough. So, after a while on the sidelines, I'm back in the saddle, as... Since it's been a while, here's a refresher of the basic rules I impose on myself for these things: Pick X number of players, usually four. The main aim is to see what said players' college unis would look like in their pro styles, and vice versa. Whenever possible, only uniform styles and logos in use when the player was in college/with the NFL team in question will be used. Every now and then, a semi-original logo must be created, or an older logo put into use, to achieve what I'm aiming for. Same goes for number fonts in most cases. Throwbacks are included in this rule. I may occasionally forget a small detail or two. It happens. If a uniform that either predates or postdates a player's time at his school/team is sufficiently awesome enough, at my discretion I might waive rule #3, also known as the Woodson Exception (after Charles Woodson). I figured I'd lead off with Mr. Last Second Pass to Win the National Championship. With apologies to Metta Ron Panda, we welcome the One Tru Warier to C2P. I know one thing. The Browns' style was trickier than it has any right to be...kinda like the Lions' blue is rarer than it should be. And now we close things out with the Bald One
  10. I am making college football fields concept for you all. I know this is going to be an unpopular decision, but I will NOT be doing colored football fields. I am sticling with the traditional green. C&C is always appreciated! I am starting with the power five then moving on to the non power 5. Enjoy!
  11. Another Neo-Vintage Mascot Logo Concept; this time Big Al from the University of Alabama marches on through the puny competition! This was a previous look I created for Al:
  12. Took another look at my Neo-Vintage Hokie Bird from 2014 and refreshed it! 2014: 2017: I have a GIF to highlight the differences, but it doesn't seem to work...
  13. Post any name/logo changes to upcoming 2016 NCAA Div I Bowl Games here. I'll start. GoDaddy Bowl becomes the Dollar General Bowl.
  14. Welcome! I am making concept uniforms for the FBS starting with the power 5! NOTICE: All teams will be sponsored by Nike, and are all dome on apps. Sorry if the quality is not the greatest. C&C is always appreciated! ACC: Boston College
  15. Over time, I have been working on concept uniforms for all 130 FBS football teams. I did the universities that are currently planning on staying or joining the FBS level. My designs were intended to be very unique and creative. I have had a lot of fun during this designing process while creating new uniform ideas. I will start uploading the uniforms for each team in alphabetical order. Let me know what you guys think and which ones are your favorites. Hope you enjoy!
  16. Alright, I think the Red Raiders could go for an identity refresh/upgrade. Their recent uniforms were an upgrade in my opinion from the previous UnderArmour looks that we have rolled out but still left something to be desired and IMO have aged greatly. The pants have been tweaked slightly to remove the "Guns Up" text and the stripes are modified a little as well. The jerseys now feature contrasting TV numbers on the shoulder tops (inspired by the Ohio State national championship unis), and a sublimated pattern on the sleeve caps. This pattern is an homage to those found on the shoulders of the suits that Spanish Matadors wore (this is what the school's original mascot was, and elements can still be found on the masked rider mascot). I also think the "Double T" logo looks better flat - but our stadium upgrade included a beveled logo on the scoreboard that was solid red which is a nice combination of simple and modern over the current look. So enough of all that, here are the goods. C&C welcome. I've put together some different combinations the team could wear, as well as a throwback set.

  17. Author's Notes: Teams will be revealed as the series progresses, schools discussed in the history portion will replace generic references upon reveal. I also plan to include more graphics in this section as teams are revealed. THE HISTORY The year is 2011. West Virginia has just completed an agreement to move to the Big 12, and both Pittsburgh and Syracuse challenged their commitments to the Big East. In order to reduce the impact of impending loss of teams, the Big East began searching for replacements. Initially, the league attempted to poach teams from two smaller, but well-respected conferences, the New England Eight and the Great Appalachian Athletic Conference. Immediately, the conference lured Norfolk College, who had risen to prominence after three straight FBS top 25 finishes and finished the 2009 season 11-1, narrowly missing a BCS Bowl. Noticing the Big East’s desperation and the beginning of the Super Conference trend, NE8 commissioner Arnold Gardner hatched a plan to keep his conference together. Gardner contacted GAAC commissioner Ron B. Lalonde and pitched the formation of a new super conference that would bring together the 8 teams from the NE8 and the CAAC’s remaining six schools. With the promise of renewed stability, national prominence, and the development of a conference television network, the 14 schools agreed to form the New England/Mid-Atlantic Conference (NEMAC), scheduled to form starting in 2013 to coincide with the departure of Norfolk College. Due to these new revelations, Norfolk filed a lawsuit to prevent the merger if not allowed to remain. However, because discussions of a merger only occurred after Norfolk announced its plan to move, the new NEMAC conference prevailed. Suddenly, with 2 serious football title contenders, as well as several other top 25 finishers, the NEMAC was positioned to become a new power conference. This was ensured by collapse of the Big East conference several years later. Since its inception, the NEMAC has become a top national conference poised to make a run at National Championships in several sports. THE TEAMS The NEMAC consists of 14 teams located in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts (3), Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York (2), New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio (2). Divisions consist of seven teams each based geographically. The East Division consists of 7 members of the NE8 with Hale moving to the West Division to join the GAAC teams. NOTE: Divisions only exist for football. Each school is a full member, with all 14 participating in every major sport except hockey (8 schools make up the NEMAC Hockey conference). THE LOGOS The NEMAC logo is derived from a combination of elements from the NE8 and the GAAC. The logo’s main shape and mountain are homages to the shape of the original GAAC logo. The 10 stars above the logo and the italicization of the letters are derived from the NE8 logo. Finally, the primary color of each logo was used in the color scheme. Each team also wears a jersey patch featuring only the conference name. These patches will be worn in team colors upon the uniforms of all sports. First Up: Maine State University
  18. For almost as long as football has existed, there have been many tries at tabletop simulations of the sport. I'm not talking about Strat-o-Matic, Paydirt and their ilk. No, what I speak of is having the whole field, and 11 little men butting heads with 11 other men. The most famous of these attempts is electric football, which seems to be something of a love/hate affair mainly because getting those little men to go where you want them to, as well as passing and kicking, are dark, arcane arts mortals were not meant to know ...and then there have been other, more obscure efforts, a number of which basically combined football with chess, though that has its own issues (queen pieces might end up being too powerful to contain, for instance). What I saw someone at Boardgame Geek do with All-Pro Football, a late 60s effort, inspired me to try my hand at at least preparing to make my own board, and at some point I'll post some of them. These fields I'm about to show you, I created with a different game, Techno Bowl, in mind. All I'll say is what I know: I think the idea has finally found its winner, and all it took was inspiration from a certain iconic NES game. Anyway, I give you a field for Rice... And in my world, the Noles bring back the white endzones...I was on the fence considering whether to have the feather on the spear or not. Finally for now, los Jefes...I have some faint memories of Arrowhead's old turf field, and also used the spear stripes from one of my older concepts in the endzones. I'll note: the original versions of my fields/boards feature grid lines, which I intend to either leave off or severely lighten for the concept versions I'll be posting here. The All-Pro fields I'll be posting, however, will be in the checkered form I intend to print them in (and I've made CFL and Arena versions as well, which I'll post later).
  19. I'll be doing two custom covers each weekend. This Saturday and Sunday: NORTHEAST - Jim Brown MID-ATLANTIC - Micheal Vick - Nov. 19-20 GREAT LAKES - J.J. Watt MIDWEST - Tyler Lockett - Nov. 26-27 SOUTHEAST - Bo Jackson FLORIDA - Michael Irvin - Dec. 3-4 TEXAS - LaDainian Tomlinson ROCKY MOUNTAINS - Kordell Stewart - Dec. 10-11 WEST - Troy Aikman & Rodney Peete PACIFIC NORTHWEST - Jake Locker Kicking it off with Jim Brown at Syracuse for the Northwest.
  20. I love watching college football and I like to see how teams change their uniforms over the years. Most of those changes have been for the better but there's still some that changed for the worse or have just always been bad. In this thread I'm not going to do redesign every team's uniform. I'm only going to redesign FBS teams that I thought have bad uniforms or could use some slight changes (which is around 30 teams). I'll try to give some type of explanation for teams I didn't change at some point too. I'm not going to post these in a specific order. And just because I post only a home, away, and alternate uniform that doesn't meant helmet, jerseys, and pants can't be mixed around. Teams I have done: Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Fresno State, Georgia Tech, Hawaii, Houston, Indiana, Kansas, Louisville, Nevada, Northern Illinois, Oregon State, TCU, Tulsa, Wisconsin, Western Michigan Teams I plan on doing: UCLA, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana-Lafayette, Bowling Green, Southern Miss, North Carolina State, East Carolina, Texas-San Antonio, Texas-El Paso, UAB, North Texas, Charlotte, Akron, Kent State On to the concepts... Central Michigan Chippewas (current uniform) Home Uniform: Away Uniform: Alternate Uniform: -Normal glossy helmets -Unique pattern on shoulders and pants. The pattern might be a little too much, but I'd rather see a team try something different than use a similar template than other Adidas schools. -Added "Chippewas"/"Central Michigan" to front of jersey Up Next: EMU
  21. So while I'm currently working on my NIKE NBA series, I thought I'd take a little break and work on some NCAA concepts. These are just some alternates for some random NCAA teams I found interesting. Enjoy and please let me know how you like them! First round of three here with many more to come!
  22. Recently I came across a logo I had made awhile back for a college hockey series. I wanted to post the logo itself with some recent edits made, because I kinda feel like it got shoved in the back of the project as a whole, and I'd really love to get some feedback on the logo itself. The motive for the logo was pretty simple. It's, at least for me, one of the most iconic and memorable mascot logos in all of college sports. Despite the fact that the logo is from a conceptual standpoint, pretty great, I feel like it really hasn't aged well, like many logos from its era. So, I decided to give the classic a modern tough. To put it simply, I took away a look of the extraneous details that all old logos seemed to have, streamlined the figure a bit (no more weird flat head), and made he leprechaun a bit younger looking to match. I also made the decision to add a bit more blue to the logo itself. I realize that the leprechaun is supposed to be wearing a green and yellow suit, but I felt that the increased blue better represented the more balanced use of green, blue, and yellow/gold that the university sports these days. Finally, I added a vegas gold to emulate the color the sports teams generally wear. Thanks guys! I'd love to hear your C+C!
  23. Thinking about expanding my college football concepts... here's one for WV... back to basics as usual. C and C appreciated.
  24. After the most successful 5-year run of the football program, Baylor fired head football coach Art Briles and "reassigned" university president Ken Starr after releasing findings from a report created by a independent law firm... and it's, um, not good: You can read the full independent report here. I thought this was interesting due to the recent revelations of the Penn State scandal and the discussions that came of it. One of the common "defenses" used by Penn State supporters at the time was that "too much time had passed, regimes had changed, don't punish the people that had no part in it, etc." Well, that argument is out the window for this situation at Baylor. In the Penn State thread, I argued at the time (and in hindsight) that Penn State should have received the death penalty for what happened under the watch of the Cult of Paterno. In this scenario now playing out at Baylor and if the findings are indeed true (they are), I think the death penalty should be given to the Bears as well. It shows a repeated and fundamental lack of institutional control, where success on the football field has eclipsed even basic human decency and rights. Vacating scholarships, wins, or practice time isn't going to miraculously fix the distorted value systems at play within the athletic department and administration where the football program is more important than the safety and treatment of your female athletes and students. That is ass-backwards and won't be fixed with a slap on the wrist. What do you think the punishment should be for the Baylor football program?
