  1. Okay, so it seems I've caught the college football fever a tad early this summer, and I've had the concept in mind for some years now, so I decided to run with it (finally). My idea comes from the ever popular idea of super conferences in college athletics. You've heard it all before I'm sure, sixteen schools, four divisions, the whole nine. Personally, I value regional location for conference affiliation over the money, so however unrealistic it is for some schools to be in certain conferences monetarily, this is the time where I point out it's my concept ?. Uniform updates will follow with all. First up will be the Southeastern Conference, being Mississippi native for my entire life and a graduate of Ole Miss I'm somewhat partial to the SEC. So here goes. The Southeastern Conference will have a centralized location and headquarters in the mecca of the South, and one of my favorite (and possibly future home of) Atlanta, Georgia. This includes location for all championship matchups and tournaments, meaning not only the SEC Championship Football Game, but for the purpose of this concept the Basketball and Baseball Tournaments. Atlanta is more than capable of hosting such events with a plethora of hotels, metro areas, and state of the art facilities, two of which are completed and brand new (Mercedes Benz Stadium - SEC Football Championship, SunTrust Park - SEC Baseball Tournament), and one of which is undergoing renovations currently (Philips Arena - SEC Basketball Tournament). This brings us to the member institutions and how they will be divided up. My vision for the SEC has the conference leaving the Big 12 footprint of Texas and Missouri, and instead focusing on states already within the geographic footprint of the "current South," including the state of North Carolina (where I believe the SEC Network is currently located). There is also a heavy emphasis on developing and continuing in-state rivalries, as well as historic rivalries, in this concept. As I said earlier in the post, there will be four divisions. They are as follows: The SEC East, The SEC North, The SEC South, The SEC West, giving us a total map look as follows. I tried to split these up geographically as best I could. Here are Division Specifics: The SEC East: - Clemson University. Location: Clemson, South Carolina. Mascot: Tigers. Colors: Purple, Orange, White. ~110 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - University of Georgia. Location: Athens, Georgia. Mascot: Bulldogs. Colors: Red, Black, White. ~59 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Georgia Tech University. Location: Atlanta, Georgia. Mascot: Yellow Jackets. Colors: Old Gold, Navy, White. 1.8 Miles from Downtown Atlanta, GA. - University of South Carolina. Location: Columbia, South Carolina. Mascot: Gamecocks. Colors: Garnet, Black, White. ~195 Miles from Atlanta, GA. The SEC North: - University of Kentucky. Location: Lexington, Kentucky. Mascot: Wildcats. Colors: Royal Blue, White, Silver. ~296 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Location: Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Mascot: Tar Heels. Colors: Carolina Blue, White, Navy. ~338 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Location: Knoxville, Tennessee. Mascot: Volunteers. Colors: Orange, White, Smokey Grey. ~157 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Vanderbilt University. Location: Nashville, Tennessee. Mascot: Commodores. Colors: Black, Vegas Gold, White. ~216 Miles from Atlanta, GA. The SEC South: - University of Alabama. Location: Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Mascot: Crimson Tide. Colors: Crimson, White, Grey. ~186 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Auburn University. Location: Auburn, Alabama. Mascot: Tigers. Colors: Navy, Orange (Auburn), White. ~115 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - University of Florida. Location: Gainesville, Florida. Mascot: Gators. Colors: Royal Blue, Orange, White. ~310 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Florida State University. Location: Tallahassee, Florida. Mascot: Seminoles. Colors: Garnet, Vegas Gold, White. ~230 Miles from Atlanta, GA. The SEC West: - University of Arkansas. Location: Fayetteville, Arkansas. Mascot: Razorbacks. Colors: Cardinal, White, Black. ~576 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Louisiana State University. Location: Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Mascot: Tigers. Colors: Purple, Athletic Gold, White. ~460 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - University of Mississippi. Location: Oxford, Mississippi. Mascot: Rebels. Colors: Navy, Red, White. ~300 Miles from Atlanta, GA. - Mississippi State University. Location: Starkville, Mississippi. Mascot: Bulldogs. Colors: Maroon, White, Grey. ~256 Miles from Atlanta, GA. I do plan to write a post for each school as to why they are in the SEC (if they aren't a current or founding member), what makes them a good fit, and what they bring to the table for the conference, the rivalries, and the tradition. I will also note that this concept (when it comes to uniforms) will put huge emphasis on uniformity of design across word marks, scripts, logos, and sports. In other words, a school is it's brand, and that brand and it's elements will be seen across all three of the big sports in their uniforms, fields, courts, etc. C&C please! Like I said, not perfect realistically or logistically, but what my SEC would be in a Super Conference era, perfect HuntTheJones world!
  2. Hello all, back during my Michigan Tech redesign, I said that I would be back to tackle more college hockey teams. With school, and what ended up being a month of finals, that sort of got pushed back awhile. But, I'm back, and ready to tackle what may be the biggest curiosity in all of college (or possibly any level) hockey, the Alabama-Huntsville Chargers. For those of you who are college hockey amateurs, Alabama-Huntsville actually exists. No, they are not very good, though they have made the NCAA tournament twice. Generally, the Chargers are considered a sort of joke or novelty, and really haven't made that big an impact on the landscape. They also have a pretty crappy logo. With my version of the logo, I initially wanted a soldier on horseback. Initially, UAH's mascot was the Uhlan, a polish cavalry unit from the 18th and 19th centuries. While the name has long since been changed to the Chargers, I thought it could be a nice little tip of the cap to the original name while maintaining the current identity. Long story short, I couldn't make it work, so it's only a horse (For those keeping score, horse rider logos 2: lafarge 0). Not much to say, really. It's a stylized front half of a horse. With the uniforms, I wanted to emulate the style of UAH's previous looks without blatantly copying the Rangers and Blackhawks, or wearing extremely amateurish uniforms. One main feature is the heavy use of black, despite having no black in the logo. This is meant to mimic the design quirk that the real uniforms feature. When determining the striping pattern, I decided to go traditional, but unusual, and applied a three stripe system. However, instead of placing black as the center stripe, like normal, I made it the bottom stripe. It honestly turned out much better than expected, and gives UAH a distinct look. The chest features UAH with the uniform number below. This is an amalgamation of two styled used by the team. The first featured Alabama Hunstville above and below the number. The second was a diagonal UAH. Combine the two, and boom. NOTE: The primary logo features a silver keyline while the uniform features a white keyline. In theory, the silver would be used in all applications, except for athletics uniforms that feature black (ideally, the designs would move away from black and towards silver, but with several blue/silver or blue/white teams in college hockey, I figured I'd keep the traditional blue/black scheme). Anyway, that's all for this time. It's certainly not as extensive as my Michigan Tech redesign, and I do hope to get back to more extensive treatments in the future. I'm not sure who I'm gonna tackle next, so if you have any suggestions, throw them my way (Existing teams only please) and I'll give em a consideration. Thanks for viewing and thanks for the C+C!
  3. So not exactly a logo or uni design, but I enjoy making FSU wallpapers for big games, big moments or just general cool designs. I went ahead and made this for the upcoming Florida State-Alabama game this September. I tried to use a vintage fight poster theme, thus why it's a little over the top and cheesy. Enjoy!
  4. With the College Football Playoff coming up soon, I decide to take the current top 4 teams and design playoff uniforms for them.
