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:
As we approach the final month of regular season games I decided to come up with some uniform adjustments for college lacrosse teams. I will start by designing the ACC and move on to probably the Big Ten from there. Starting off I have Syracuse and Notre Dame. For Syracuse I wanted to give an old school feel, bring back the glory days, but I didn't want to go over the top with a throwback uniform. I combined elements from the uniforms they wore back when the Gaits were at the school, and also from the 2008, 2009 championship teams. With Notre Dame i went very new and crazy. The shamrock has a celtic design, which is also featured on the blue helmet. the gold helmet has a bright green chrome facemask. Also kept a similar striping to what they already have now.
I was watching the Duke-UNC game a few weeks ago and had the thought, "What would Duke look like in argyle?". This question has inspired a new series I am starting, a rivalry uniform swap. I know some people have gone in and recolored some football teams with their rival's colors, but this is different. I have decided to take one of the more iconic looks from each team in some of college basketball's biggest rivalries and turn it into a full out design based on their rival's colors. It's hard to explain, so just see what I did below. While I have a few rivalries I personally want to knock out, but I would love to take some suggestions. I've read through several polls ranking the best, gone through my own personal list, and I'm still not all that sure which ones I want to do. Of the rivalries I have planned to knock out, I have (In no particular order): St. Mary's-Gonzaga, Louisville-Kentucky, and Georgetown-Syracuse. I also would like to keep it to a max of one rivalry per team. So I won't be doing another Duke or UNC game unless it is highly recommended. The template I am currently using is TimeOBrian's "Basketball Uniform Template 1" from DevianArt. While I do enjoy this template, I am looking for a slightly better one, one that gives a look at the uniform from the side. If anyone wouldn't mind linking me to a solid .psd file, it would be much appreciated. Now to the actual uniforms themselves!! For the first game in this series, I went with what might be the biggest rivalry in college basketball today, the Battle for Tobacco Road. This series has one of the most iconic uniforms in the NCAA with UNC's argyle, as well as one of the most replicated styles with Duke's "banner" style. For the Duke Argyle, I chose to go with "Blue Devils" instead of "Duke" just to be consistent with the two word name like the UNC jersey. Similarly, I chose to go with just "Carolina" for consistency's sake. C&C is always appreciated!
