"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...

For newer members (probably six years and under), the Concepts section was full of high-profile contests that we looked forward to every few weeks or so. One of them was called "Iron Crossover", in which any board member could come up with a uniform concept based on a team's logos put on another sport's template. I want to resurrect that, and am doing so today! (Click the logo for inspiration) This maiden battle in Concept Stadium will take place between now and December 31st, 2012 at Midnight (any concepts submitted to this thread afterwards will not be eligible for voting). Some quick rules before we start off: --Voting will be by poll from January 1st, 2013, to January 6th, 2013 (my birthday) --You must do a home, road, and alternate uniform. The alternate may be a throwback. --All logos used MUST BE CURRENT. You may design any other way (i.e., striping) but you must use the current logos. The only exception is if you choose a throwback design as your alternate. You may not create your own logo for a team. However, you may use any template you feel will best showcase your ideas. Presentation is key! --Any attempts to "politic" your concept will result in automatic disqualification with suspension of eligibility for the next "Next Iron X-Over". Further, please refrain from revealing your votes during the submission or voting process. You can provide C/C, but not votes. This restriction will be lifted after voting ends. --Trash talking is encouraged, but trolling will result in automatic disqualification and banning from further competition in Next Iron X-Over --Winner will receive a cool signature image PLUS a chance at competing against one of our "Iron X-Over Chefs" which will be announced later. See? Simple, simple but a load of fun. I will announce your Challenge in the next post!
