  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. 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!
  3. Inspired by CAB's concept (<---hint hint click click), I decided to try to finish up his designs for minimalist logos. I know that hasn't been posted on for like 2 years by OC and it hasn't been commented on in like 6 months, but I've had it bookmarked for a while so let me know what y'all think! Here is the SEC
  4. Okay, so like everyone on the board I like to make concepts using the various templates. It is my dream to see my concepts in reality, and with that chance being slim, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Without further ado, my attempts at bringing some concepts to reality with Photoshop. C&C welcome, on the uniforms and the Photoshop job. First up, not really a concept I made, but a current uniform combination I want to see. That being the Powder Blue helmets over the Navy Jersey and Grey Pants. Up until now, the Rebs have only worn Powder Blue with Red or White/Red Jerseys, and I for one would love to see the next combo. Let's call it a throwback. Then my modern version: Up next, a couple of my own concepts, the first being the standard Navy Helmet, only with a Grey Facemask in order to tie in the Grey Pants and give them a vintage, old school look. This is meant to be the full time Navy Helmet, giving both helmet options a Grey mask. The next two are also just concepts (Sorry I will be using the same photo, if that is bothersome). The first one is a Navy version of a Colonel Reb Throwback Helmet, and the second is just the Powder Blue counterpart. We can call them the "Archie Era" throwbacks. And the concepts: C&C Please!
  5. The concept is basically this: SEC Baseball uniforms as an SEC Football Uniform. First up, Ole Miss: Just for fun.
  6. Hello everybody, I love redesigning teams and creating concept and I thought how about the SEC football uniforms. I tried a crossover previously but it was a bust. I am giving it another shot though so without further ado: the uniforms. UNIFORM EXPLANATIONS Alabama: Gray alternate because I felt gray pride uniform would fit right into the Alabama look. Home and away stay as classic sharp uniforms. Arkansas: Grays because they share a division with LSU (who wears white at home and colors on the road) Arkansas won't have to where colors at LSU or when LSU visits, they can plop on a gray versus an LSU colored uniform. I am not always a fan of blackout but in this case, I think the helmet logo with the red and black looks fantastic. Constructive criticism welcomed
  7. I did a series of NCAA baseball concepts this time last year; I did the entire SEC as well as many other NCAA baseball programs. You can see that thread here: This year, I will revisit the SEC concepts on hopefully improve on them. The first two I've done are Mississippi State and Arkansas, both of which I am very happy with. -- Mississippi State has the potential for a great baseball uniform set. They look good as it is, but a few simple tweaks and they could have a classic, untouchable look. Here, I've introduced a new, consistent number font. That same font has been applied to the "Mississippi State" wordmark and has been used to create a new "Bulldogs" wordmark. A Mississippi patch has been added to the sleeve of each jersey. The white and maroon jerseys remain with the modified wordmark and number font. The pinstripe and maroon MS jerseys also remain, with the only change being the updated number font. The "Bulldogs" wordmark is applied to the cream jersey and to a new gray away jersey. These changes, I believe, would unify Mississippi State's baseball brand. Adidas would be allowed to introduce two crazy alternates a year, for use in the SEC tournament only. I based Arkansas on their Nike rebrand from this past summer. The classic A logo stays, and the new Razorback logo has been added to the sleeve as a patch. The number font has been updated; the new slanted wordmarks seem tailor-made for baseball.
  8. Many Mississippi State fans clamor for the Slanted MSU logo, various versions of which were worn from the late 70s to 2003. Nike owns the version worn from 1996-2003, but an updated version of the previous logo (1985-1995) would be plausible. This logo was constructed using the university's custom font, which can be found on Fonts By Conrad as "Starkville". Under this concept, it would be worn on the helmet on homecoming and on road Egg Bowls.
  9. Hey guys, I've been working on a Florida Gators concept recently but I'm having trouble deciding on the helmet. I'm going to keep it mostly the same, but I want to replace the outdated cursive script with the current wordmark on the helmet. I just can't figure out what color it should be, so I'll leave it up to you guys. I like option 1 better. Full uniforms will be up soon. EDIT: Option one wins. EDIT TWO: Option One wins so helmets removed
  10. With the uniform craze over the last couple of years only continuing to grow more and more ridiculous, the SEC has prided itself (for the most part) in maintaining a rather traditional feel with their respected universities. I'd like to go even a step further and get these teams back to the root of their design. A lot of the changes were made with tradition in mind, adding elements that used to be commonplace for these institutions, while still at times allowing a pinch of the modern flare to remain. I'll go through each university in the SEC, some given a lot of change, others not so much, to get back to the basics and prove that less is more.

  12. There has been talk about this for about the past year, and the renderings finally were released today. The current grandstand will be torn down and an all-new double- tiered grandstand with a 360-degree walk around concourse. Based on the renderings, it will be without doubt the best college baseball stadium in the country. LSU and South Carolina have built stadiums on similar budgets in the last few years, but this one looks to surpass those two. The left field lounge has been preserved, and new left field suites will be added in a brick building, giving the park a Petco Park and Camden Yards- like feel. I was hoping for a complete rebuild, and I think they absolutely hit it out of the park. It's going to be awesome to go to games there in a few years. For comparison, here's what it currently looks like: There's also this really cool flyover video that shows the park from every angle:
  13. All I have is a primary at the moment but will probably do several updates. I don't like our current logo because the size of the V and the big star make it look awkward up next to others. II took many ideas from past logos and got this. This my first attemt at any logo other then a crest or a simple wordmark. C&C desperately needed. find the past logos here
  14. Alright, so I'm an aspiring graphic designer. I don't really post much on this site, but I love all the concepts and unique designs. I've been working on this project for a while, and I'm finally going to start posting it. I still haven't decided if I will separate these by conference or not. I wanted to do full alternate jerseys also, but I don't really have time for that, and I decided this was a great way to get my designs in. C & C is well appreciated. But without further ado, here it goes: SEC: Ole Miss - Page 1 Alabama - Page 3 Auburn - Page 1 LSU - Page 2 Texas A&M - Page 3 Mississippi State - Page 3 Vanderbilt - Page 1 Mizzou - Page 3 Tennessee - Page 1 South Carolina - Page 2 Arkansas - Page 1 Florida - Page 3 Georgia - Page 3 Kentucky - Page 1 / update on page 2 Pac 12: Oregon: Page 5 (chose color) Stanford: page 4 / edit on page 5 Oregon State: Washington: Page 5 Washington State: Arizona: Page 5 UCLA: Cal: Colorado: Utah: Arizona State: USC: Ole Miss: I felt like UM's "rebrand" this year was pretty boring. I understand the history of such an old school, but I didn't like the single color Jereys (by that I mean, a white jersey with red stripes, red numbers, red names, etc... with no blue) so I gave them an alternate helmet that would use all 3 of the school's colors well. I gave them a red helmet to go with their blue tops, but I used the alternate "M" logo, and I really like the outcome: striping -
  15. With Arkansas' newest football unveiling I felt slightly in the minority of being a bit disappointed. While their last set wasn't perfect by any means, I really liked the uniqueness of the "razor-stripe" and thought there was something ownable about it. Much moreso than the "tusk / stadium jaw" insert color insert. Overview of what I did here: Kept razor-stripe on shoulders like their previous set, but kept it one color (i.e. no more grey/black/anthracite), which also means the capped sleeves are gone.Returned to previous wordmarks. IMO the new ones feel over designed. The old ones felt "razory" but still clean.Kept new secondary hog on neck. I think it works well there and is an improvement over the hog/shield from before.Added shoulder numbers, like the previous set had. Without any substantial shoulder / sleeve design, the absence of them feels unfinished to me.Kept new pants stripe. I think this is a certain improvement over the old fill-in-the-blank style one, and compliments the razor-stripe well.Switched the running hog to the other side of the pants so it's running forward and not backward.On white pants/helmet I used the red/black running hog instead of the reversed out red one. I think that if that's your primary logo, that's how it should appear on your uniforms. I did use the white/red version on the red helmet for traditions' sake and whatnot (and because it actually has correct shadows/highlights unlike the reversed version)Changed helmet back bumper to read "Arkansas" instead of "Razorbacks" because it seemed redundant to have "Hogs" on the front and "Razorbacks" on the back.
  16. The SEC and ESPN announced the creation of the SEC network which is scheduled to start in August 2014. Not much creativity went into the logo as all they did was slap the work network below their current SEC/ESPN partnership logo. ESPN will be part owner of the network, but with the channel being called "SEC Network", having ESPN in the middle makes for a somewhat clunky logo. Despite having the ESPN logo get in the way of the natural reading progression of the channel's name, the vertical version is better looking than the horizontal one in my opinion.
  17. College football has started again, and I was reminded again of how LSU's helmets don't match the rest of their logos, graphics, and even colors. I am sure they keep their helmet unchanged because of their tradition, and I am sure their fan base would go apoplectic with even slight modifications to their helmet. I have lived in either Central Ohio or Alabama almost all of my life, so I understand college football fans of historic programs and their value of traditions. That being said, what I do not like is when the athletic department changes logos and graphics without messing with the helmets. I am not really a big fan of LSU's colors and logos, but they should at least have helmets that use fonts, logos, and colors that the school currently uses. Currently, the football helmet doesn't even match the football jerseys. If the script and logo on the helmet are so timeless, they would still be using the logo and font elsewhere. Here is their current design: As I said earlier, my problem is not so much with the actual design (even though I personally am not a fan), it is that it no longer matches what the rest of their athletic department looks like. In fact, the purple on the helmet doesn't match the purple on their jerseys. I think that LSU should keep their helmet design the same to appease the fan base, but they should use the font that they use in their end zones and the school's main tiger logo. So here is my suggestion: I have taken the script from their end zone and changed the tiger decal. In addition I have made their face masks and stripes the official LSU purple so that it matches their jerseys. I think that these would be small enough changes to respect tradition and keep a fan base somewhat mollified, yet give LSU a design that fits with the rest of their look. Personally, I would like for them to have a more major redesign, but I doubt that would happen. (Their white helmets with gold trim from a year or two ago were a nice upgrade.) For fun I decided to do some alternate helmets. This one uses the eye from their midfield. I think it would be used one time a season for a special game. I saw that LSU recently trademarked a new logo. I think that they are mainly using it as a small logo on polo shirts, etc. (I could be wrong), but I like it and put it on a helmet that would be quite different. I also took just the head from the previous logo and tried that. (I was dealing with a low-quality image, so it isn't very crisp.)
  18. I think this is a great website... I just discovered it yesterday. This is my very first post. There are a bunch of Aggies trying to get rid of our stupid beveled logo. We have been complaining about it for years. Overall probably two-thirds of Aggies don't like the Bevel and it is our primary logo! I would appreciate any ideas, opinions, or advice. The NCAA has banned beveled numbers, so at least that will be gone. The Classic Block aTm logo is still on the helmet (and has been on the helmet since 1965). The Texas A&M Student Senate signed a Debevelization Representation Bill and is adding a vote on the Bevel to the Fall 2013 Student Body Elections. Here is a thread on the Bevel (posted on April 13, 2013) with almost 700 replies. Here is a website where you can download the pdf letter and submit comments... Below is the letter I sent to the administration. I posted the first 10 pages (the website won't allow me to post all 15 pages), but you can read the entire letter at
  19. Today the South Eastern Conference and ESPN announced that on August 14th, 2014 the SEC Network launches. This is a 20 year deal includes a new television network and digital platform that will show SEC sports 24/7, including more than 1,000 events in the first year. Included in the programming will be 45 football games, more than 100 men's and more than 60 women's basketball games, 75 baseball games and selected events from the other 17 SEC sports. The network will also feature studio shows and coverage of special events such as signing day and football pro days. Check out more at the links below:
