  1. The corrupt and despicable NCAA has been wiped off the face of the earth, and existing colleges no longer have any desire to host college athletics. In it's place, the American Collegiate Athletics Federation and its partners have stepped in to the fill the void. The ACAF operates through 6 conferences across the continental United States. Three conferences have 12 members, and three have 14 members. These 78 schools each represent a specific region of the US. In some cases a school might represent an entire state, in others it could be a representation of a geographic or cultural region of a state. Super Central East Texas Texas School of Wells Prairie Dogs South Texas Texas Coast Dixie Oklahoma Oklahoma A&M University Okies Ouachita University Racers Arkansas Lowlands Kansas Plains Metro Kansas Nebraska Northern Missouri Territorial Twelve Grand Canyon College Javelinas Southern Arizona New Mexico Western Colorado Rockies Colorado Southeastern Colorado San Diego/ Imperial Valley Pacific International University Harlequins Central Coastal California Inland California Lower Utah Southern Nevada Pacific Frontier Northern Utah Bay Area Cali Far North Cali Central Oregon Coastal Oregon Cascades Washington Coastal Washington Northern Nevada University of Southern Idaho Wizards Rockies Idaho High Plains University Sauropods Wyoming Midwest Union North Dakota South Dakota Michigan UP Northern Illinois Downstate Illinois Eastern Iowa Central Iowa Wisconsin Mideastern Michigan University Smiths Western Michigan North Indiana South Indiana Superior College Giants Plains Minnesota Power East North Ohio Appalachian Ohio Appalachian Christian University Colliers NE Pennsylvania SW Pennsylvania Virginia Maritime University Tidesmen Inland Virginia Maine Green Mountain State University Colony Delaware Massachusetts New York City Upstate NY Grand Old South South Florida North Florida E Tennessee W Tennessee South Carolina Kentucky Ozarks Mizzou Alabama Baptist University Bloodhounds Georgia Coastal North Carolina Inland North Carolina Mississippi Georgia Atlantic University Herons Louisiana Above are the regions that there will be a school in, in their respective conferences. You might notice that one of these regions actually has a name already, you'd be right! Representing the region of Northern/Plateau Arizona... Grand Canyon College Javelinas Location: Prescott, Arizona Affiliation: Territorial Twelve Colors: Sedona Red, Peaks Purple, White "Tequila Sunrise" - Eagles The Northern third of Arizona has a much higher elevation than the rest of Arizona, the biggest Ponderosa Pine forest in the country, and some of the most recognizable locations in the state. The name is obviously taken from one of them, the color is take from another, and the "Four Peaks" are represented in the secondary logo. For a primary, we have a simple yet classy interlocked letter combination. For the secondary, the mascot in question (ha-vuh-lee-na). I would like to do uniforms for these teams after I attempt to finish EVERY team's branding (sheesh). So please, don't ask about uniforms until then. As well as this, conference logos will come out whenever I am hit with inspiration for them (they are for some reason the most difficult part for me). Lastly, these will come out whenever I have the time. I'm a student athlete on spring break at the moment, so I have a little more time than usual. When school starts back up, progress will slow down significantly. If I have not posted in a while, feel free to comment but please don't say "WHEN IS THE NEXT SCHOOL COMING OUT". With all that out of the way, please throw some C&C at me! Looking for some critique on my javelina logo, as well critique on my choice of regions. If you think that a super-duper important region is being left out, or one should be replaced, let me know! I love learning about stuff like that. Lastly, I have no pre-determined order I'm going in. I'll let the first suggestion determine the next school I tackle, if you see someone has already suggested a region then please do not comment another suggestion. Thank you so much for taking a look everyone, looking forward to getting this show on the road!
  2. I've been drawing logos since I was younger, but only recently gotten into digital design. The many different concepts I've seen I feel has expanded my abilities and has led to me wanting to get some feedback to even better my work. I hope you guys enjoy this and now I present to you, the American Union of Interscholastic Athletics.
  3. This concept was started a few years ago here: http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/98132-vintage-style-lipscombcoloradohoward/ . And I just went back and cleaned it up. Let me know what you think of the updates. Here is the image: And a GIF for comparison:
  4. Here are my NCAA D1 basketball court concepts using DarthBrooks template. Some of the courts might be boring/traditional and some might be considered a little extreme. I have been working on these on and off for over a year and have around half the teams done. I will be posting them in alphabetical order by conference (A-10 first, WCC last). Just because I made a concept for a team doesn't mean I don't like their current court. A few things you might notice... I am a fan of two-tone courts when used by the right team (I wouldn't have two-tones with traditional schools like Indiana, Duke, UCLA, etc.). The more unique logos the school has the more I tried to incorporate them into the court. Once in a while I might use a logo in a way it wasn't intended (ex. Marquette eagle logo used on court). Some of the conference logos might be a year or 2 out of date (A-10, ACC, Big 12). I didn't include websites, twitter handles, hashtags, etc. (except for one;TCU) on the out-of-bounds area. I probably only looked up 10% of the team's current court so some might be very similar to their current court on accident. Here are links to all the posts of the courts... A-10 (1st half below, 2nd half); ACC (1st half, 2nd half); America East (1st half, 2nd half); American (1st half, 2nd half); Atlantic Sun (1st half, 2nd half); B1G (1st half, 2nd half); Big 12 (1st half, 2nd half); Big East (1st half, 2nd half); Big Sky (1st half, 2nd half); Big South (1st half, 2nd half); Big West (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 1 (1st half, 2nd half, extra); CAA (1st half, 2nd half); C-USA (1st half, 2nd half); Horizon (1st half, 2nd half); Ivy League (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 2; MAAC (1st half, 2nd half); MAC (1st half, 2nd half); MEAC (1st half, 2nd half); Missouri Valley (1st half, 2nd half); Mt West (1st half, 2nd half); NEC (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 3 (1st half, 2nd half); Ohio Valley (1st half, 2nd half); PAC-12 (1st half, 2nd half); Patriot League (1st half, 2nd half); SEC (1st half, 2nd half); Southern (1st half, 2nd half); Southland (1st half, 2nd half); Summit League (1st half, 2nd half); Sun Belt (1st half, 2nd half); SWAC (1st half, 2nd half); WAC (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 4; WCC (1st half, 2nd half); Conference Tourney Courts (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4); UPDATES Round 5; A-10 (1st half) Davidson Wildcats Dayton Flyers Duquesne Dukes Fordham Rams George Mason Patriots George Washington Colonials LaSalle Explorers
  5. In light of USF eliminating the recently created academic bull for the Iconic Bull U for now both academics & athletics, I always wondered how many colleges also use the same marks for both. On top of my head here's some that I already know of. Of course, I couldn't leave out UCF & their pegasus. The pegasus has appeared on their football & baseball uniforms. An older version appeared on football helmets in 1981 & 1982 per the Helmet Project. What are more examples of above?
  6. Hey Guys! It's been awhile. Today I present a concept for the Marywood University Pacers. I drive past this school everyday and I wonder if they could have gone in a different direction. Here is my attempt. Let me know what you think! As always C&C welcome!
  7. *The template I use is not mine. All credit goes to DarthBrooks for the template.* This is a concept of me posting about NCAA courts that I recreate, and are not real. These are fictional designs, and I am looking to make quality content, as well as get feedback to improve. Tags to those who replied/responded/liked content: @Coderedalert5 @walkerws @DoctaC @BellaSpurs @1991 @TFet41 @jn8 @rattyrattera @Section30
  8. I am using this site to post my college basketball court concepts hope you enjoy them. Any requests or feedback would be greatly appreciated. The template I am using is made by darthbrooks.
  9. Hello there, Instead making radial or court brackets, I like to pick a year & create a bracket complete with team logos used in that year. I did have this finished before the First Round began but I was unsatisfied with my background. After trying different ideas using a zubaz pattern I decided it wasn't that important anymore & picked a colorful ink splatter and now sharing this. As for the team logos, I spent months scavenging throughout the internet searching sources of team logos used at or around March 1992. Believe it or not, my most helpful source was eBay. There's thousands of products for sale such as pocket schedules & media guides that include years & logos on them giving me proof a team logo was used at that time. I had to be watch out with pre-season program covers because pictures of uniforms in action would be from the previous season and such. My other sources came from a couple YouTube videos over the 1992 March Madness coverage, Getty Images, and digitized yearbooks. My project is a combination of real & concept so I'm posting this in the Concept section. I would say half of the logos were easy to find via this website & College Vault PDFs. There other half I had to rebuild the logos myself. All of this was done through Illustrator which I'm not an expert with. I enjoy doing these specific-year-themed bracket as I can discover logos that cannot be find anywhere else on the internet. And it's cool to see the different styles of logos as well as how long some of them have truly been around. 2 years ago I made a 'Stranger Things' bracket set in 1983 and I was able to reuse several logos from that period. Here is the full Imgur album that has some explanation of how I know that was the correct logo to use. I can provide more info & sources if wanted.

    Apple Cup Logo

    Hey everyone. I've been holding onto this design for a while, as the Apple Cup hasn't been on anyone's mind until now, and no one could've predicted just how important it would be! The current logo for the game is serviceable, but is incredibly bland and generic. I sought to create something unique to Washington, and here's what I came up with, in several different color options. Thanks for checking it out! https://imgur.com/kCvbtmD https://imgur.com/bwzIphx https://imgur.com/Rf10GkD https://imgur.com/BdxRyzh https://imgur.com/92eaete
  11. Hello everyone! I've been a huge fan of college hockey my entire life, going to my first game when I was only 6 Weeks old. I decided to try my hand on redesigning all 60 teams in D1 college hockey. Some teams are just slight updates or even remaining the same for the most part, others are complete overhauls. WARNING: you will see a lot of stripes and script, and no football helmets in this thread! Every team has 4 jerseys, a home, away, alternate, and a second alternate which is mostly throwbacks but also can be a fauxback or a normal alternate. I will be going in alphabetical order of conference then team, lets get started! Starting off in Atlantic Hockey we have our first team. The American International College (AIC) Yellow Jackets CURRENT UNIFORMS: Home: Based off of their old alternate jersey, now with their classic Yellow Jacket logo on the chest. Away: A black version of their home. Alt: A yellow version. Alt 2: A fauxback with striped arms, AIC on chest diagonally, and no white on the uniform.
  12. Rebrand for my alma mater Western Michigan University. We aren't sure if we are black, gold, old gold, grey, or brown. I think the Brown and Old Gold is a great scheme and it's time to return to our roots. Enjoy. Uniforms to follow!
  13. It's been a minute, but just wanted to get some feedback on something I've been working on. Lake Forest College Rugby has been one of the most successful clubs on the LF campus, but has never been more than a club. In recent years the competition has increased dramatically, and the move to a full-fledged varsity program looks realistic. With this in mind, I made something that could be considered the first official crest of this club. Hope you guys enjoy, comments and criticism are always appreciated!
  14. Thanks for watching!
  15. I just finished looking through that thread that was where everyone posted a fictional college, the Sportslogos College Athletic Association. While that was brilliant, it is dead. I intend to restart it under a different name. Same format, Name, nickname, location, colors, logo, fun facts, background under, but no rule on the metro cities. I have an idea so I'll start. It's visually a little rushed plus it's in paint. I'll work on it. Name: Julio Lobo University (Universidad de Julio Lobo) Nickname: Reyes (Kings) Location: Miami, FL Colors: Red and Blue of the Cuban flag and royal Purple. https://imgur.com/n9yqkTS In this timeline, Cuban sugar mogul Julio Lobo's fateful October 11, 1960 meeting with Ernesto "Che" Guevara results in Lobo fleeing to Miami, but he found a way to get his money through. Lobo, ever the philanthropist, founded Universidad de Julio Lobo in 1963. It was, and continues to be mostly for business, as Lobo was a great businessman. There is also a large agricultural component, again connected to the founding by Lobo, a sugar mogul. Sports came soon. Lobo being from Latin America, soccer and baseball were obviously first, but they were quickly followed by football, basketball, tennis, golf, and any other sport I may be missing, except ice hockey. There's field hockey, but it's Miami. No ice hockey. Lacrosse recently came in newer. The teams were named Los Reyes as a reference to Lobo's nickname, "El Rey de Azucar de Havana" (The Sugar King of Havana). They generally started going more by the English names in the 1980s, but the Spanish names are the official names. As it is a newer school, they are somewhat light on traditions, but that does not stop the student body of around 20,000 from packing Estadio Montalvo (another rich Cuban family Lobo married into) on Saturdays for the football games.
  16. 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
  17. Uniforms created for a hypothetical football version of the PK80 basketball tournament. Looks were built out based on the basketball uniforms worn by each team in this year's tournament. Oklahoma has moved to Jordan brand, as the games would take place next season. Like this year's iteration of the PK80, the use of black is prominent and iridescent highlights are used to accent footwear, gloves and event branding. Individual team concepts coming next
  18. Recently I enrolled in a Graphic Design program in college and was in design class when I had the idea to create circle logos. I started with Vanderbilt nothing else really just the logo C&C welcome as well as request for the next logo.
  19. I've begun collecting logos that I'd like to update. The first one I did was an old amateur hockey team logo, and I posted it here. This time I thought I'd try to get a bit more elaborate. Here's what I started with: And here's my update: Let me know what you think! PS: here's the rest of the logos I'm currently going to try to work with: pinboard. Let me know if there's one in particular from there you'd like to see or if you have any suggestions. I'm not currently planning on doing requests like Ren, but I'll definitely consider suggestions.
  20. 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!
  21. "Oh no". "I thought this died". Nope! We're back, under the same, more experienced management. Along with 11 other members of the board, the SCAA is moving in a new, improved direction. I picked them based on who showed the most interest in SCAA, as well as who I thought were self sufficient enough to deal with their own logos and unis. It's nothing personal if you participated in the old SCAA but were not picked for this one. Here is the premise... Setup Myself and 11 other members created fictional college identities. Some were used from the original SCAA thread, while others were created brand new. As well as sets of logos and backstories created for each college, we made football uniforms. From here, two conferences were created with 6 members in each. The Pacific Conference to the West, and the Continental Conference back East. Using these conferences, we made an eight game schedule for each team (5 conference game and 3 out of conference games). How it Works Every Saturday, 6 uniform matchups will be posted. These are the "games" in each week of the season. As well as posting the uniforms in this thread, a poll will be setup weekly to vote on the best matchups. Once these votes are counted, both teams in the first place matchup will be awarded 300 points, second place matchup teams will receive 200 points, and third place with 100 points. Additionally, each individual vote will awards 50 points to each team. At the end of eight weeks, the winner of the Pacific and Continental conferences, as well as the next two leading scorers from either conference, will participate in a 4 team playoff tournament. After these two matchups, the two winning teams will go head to head and ideally the best overall uniform should win! How are you involved? If only the members from each team voted, it could very well devolve into a Pirates of the Caribbean situation, with each person voting for their own teams. This is why your involvement can be so important, the more votes the better. I decided to start very small for a reason, and expansion is likely to be small and deliberate for that same reason. Now that that's all out of the way, here are your members and colleges of SCAA 2017! From the Pacific Conference on the left, going top to bottom... Alaska-Juneau State University Kodiaks (Juneau, AK) @~Bear Lake Tahoe Tech University Sierra Guardians (Carson City, NV) @Pulv! Mililani University Mano (Mililani, HI) @ZionEagle Portland Tech University Pioneers (Portland, OR) @Bruins Rainier Tacoma University Thunder (Tacoma, WA) @Spanna65 University of Santa Monica Aztecas (Santa Monica, CA) @sleuthpanther And from the Continental Conference to the East... Mercy Valley University Titans (Convington, KY) @poiper2 Quad City College Lions (Davenport, IA) @Steelman Robert Gould Shaw University Colonels (Boston, MA) @XenonDesigns University of Southern Indiana Cardinals (Bloomington, IN) @gswansea University of the Iron Legion (Hibbing, MN) @Chapeeko Waxahachie State University Buffaloes (Waxahachie, TX) @ColeJ Spoilers were added for some teams, will be continued and added to!
  22. I was just messing around with Photoshop and I created a fauxback uniform for Michigan State. I used only cream and green for the uniform. I don't really have a list of teams in mind so I am down to take requests.
  23. Hello guys, welcome to the SCAA! If all goes well, this ambitious project should be interesting and fun for the whole community. I do not believe something like this has been done before on the boards, the closest comparison would probably be the soccer club cup project floating around here a while ago. Without further ado, let's get into the general idea and some rules! General Idea The general idea of this project is to create an NCAA-like system here on the boards. Each member creates a fictional university, and creates logos and uniforms for different sports for that university. This would not be something you have to apply to, just post your way in. As more people add schools, conferences will be created, expanded, and more will be created. With this, conference logos, bowls and whatever else comes around will be created as well. This will hopefully create a tradition and history of it's own. Traditional sports like Football, Basketball, Baseball, Hockey, and Soccer could be included. However the amount of content for each university is up to the creator. Want to show off your college's womens lacrosse uniforms? Go right ahead! THIS IS NOT A FANTASY LEAGUE There are college fantasy leagues here already, this is not meant to replace them. With this idea I don't mean to tread on the toes of fantasy leagues here or the members that diligently compete in them. This is purely for design, for those folks who just want to help create something like another world, and add there own little piece. A note for people who might be in these fantasy leagues, keep those teams in fantasy leagues. Don't mix them into this mess. So, how do we start something like this? Initially, people would just post concepts of style guides/logos, NO UNIFORMS YET. This to keep clutter down, and we don't even know what sports we would be covering. Once enough people contributed, conferences could be discussed. This would be continued until concrete decisions are made. Conferences would then be created officially. Concepts would be continually posted, and talks of expansion would open up. A time limit would be set to enter teams into "consideration" (EVERYONE CAN JOIN, NO ONE WILL BE LEFT OUT. CONSIDERATION MEANS WHICH CONFERENCE YOUR TEAM WOULD END UP IN). Once this time limit is up, conference alignment would be set up, and the process would repeat. Somewhere in this process, uniform concepts would be created and other cool stuff like that. I would only ask that you KEEP POSTS CONCISE. DON'T POST FIVE TIMES WHAT YOU CAN POST IN ONE POST (that was a mouthful). Obviously something like this would involve an absurd amount of people, so posting could easily get out of hand. Post initially in this format Name of University: Nickname: Location (City, State): Colors: *Please attach logo sheets and things like that under, feel free to include other fun stuff about the college as well! A Few More Cosmetic Rules -Schools must be original. Don't try to put in "University of Michigan State" or something stupid like that. This is meant to be 100% original content. -One primary logo. It doesn't matter if the logo is as simple as a block letter, just make sure there is a clearly defined primary logo. People are of course free to have as many secondary and tertiary logos as they please. -At least one primary and one secondary color. Don't just say "My school color is red". It's gotta be at least red and white. -MAX. two universities to a single metro area (at least to begin with). There's a lot of United States out there, explore it. If there are truly too many universities, there's always room to change this rule. -Use your best judgement for potentially offensive nicknames and things. Best Judgment. Need I say more? So, what do you all think? I have a concept locked and loaded but I'd like to hear what you all think first! I think this has the potential to be something fun for the community as a whole, and potentially get newer members stirred up into the pot a little bit. Alot of different levels of expertise would be represented, and noobies and vets alike could receive helpful criticism along the way. It would be a lot of work, and I'd need the help of anyone who wants to get this going! Questions, comments, and concerns are greatly appreciated, hope to hear from all of you!
