I love watching college football and I like to see how teams change their uniforms over the years. Most of those changes have been for the better but there's still some that changed for the worse or have just always been bad. In this thread I'm not going to do redesign every team's uniform. I'm only going to redesign FBS teams that I thought have bad uniforms or could use some slight changes (which is around 30 teams). I'll try to give some type of explanation for teams I didn't change at some point too. I'm not going to post these in a specific order. And just because I post only a home, away, and alternate uniform that doesn't meant helmet, jerseys, and pants can't be mixed around.

 

Teams I have done: Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Fresno State, Georgia Tech, Hawaii, Houston, Indiana, Kansas, Louisville, Nevada, Northern Illinois, Oregon State, TCU, Tulsa, Wisconsin, Western Michigan

 

Teams I plan on doing: UCLA, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana-Lafayette, Bowling Green, Southern Miss, North Carolina State, East Carolina, Texas-San Antonio, Texas-El Paso, UAB, North Texas, Charlotte, Akron, Kent State

 

On to the concepts...

 

Central Michigan Chippewas (current uniform)

Home Uniform:

Away Uniform:

Alternate Uniform:

-Normal glossy helmets

-Unique pattern on shoulders and pants. The pattern might be a little too much, but I'd rather see a team try something different than use a similar template than other Adidas schools.

-Added "Chippewas"/"Central Michigan" to front of jersey

Eastern Michigan Eagles (current uniform)

Home Uniform:

Away Uniform:

Alternate Uniform:

-Before you freak out about the black alternate let me explain. It's meant to be like other Adidas 'Uncaged' uniforms (like Louisville last year). I won't say I loved the 'Uncaged' uniforms Adidas has previously done, but it is interesting and nice to change things up a bit.  

-Got rid of all the diamond plate and silver

-Added "Speed Stripe" to home and away uniforms

-Green helmet is satin. White and Black helmets are glossy.

These are absolutely gorgeous. Just outstanding execution for both.  They are the perfect balance out traditional and trendy.  only suggestion is to give the black pants some detail.

I agree with @infernoqueso, everything is amazing except for the black pants.

Not digging the real eagle on the helmet at all, if you could make a digitized version that would be a major step up. I'm liking the start though!

The focus of the alternate uniform wasn't really meant to be on the pants. It was more to be on the helmet and shoulders. That's why the black pants are kind of bland.

The Adidas 'Uncaged' helmets are more realistic (with a demonized twist) than standard logos/graphics on helmets, so that why it's like that. What do you mean by digitized version? They don't have an eagle logo anymore, so I can't add that unless I make my own (which I can't because I'm not good with creating logos yet).

I would either bring back their old eagle logo or just ditch it altogether, because right now it feels kind of clip arty

Then my problem's with the uncaged series and not with your concept

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (current uniform)

Home Uniform:

Away Uniform:

IMG_4744.JPG

Alternate Uniform:

IMG_4745.JPG

-Didn't have Russell Athletic template so I used Under Armour instead. Rumors are that GT is most likely to switch to UA once Russell contract is up.

-Yes the white jersey is part of the home uniform (GT and LSU are the only schools that do that)

-Added "Ramblin' Wreck" to front of pant leg (seems to be UA's latest uniform trend)

-Both helmets are glosssy. White helmet has subtle honeycomb pattern

Alternate Uniform:

-Got rid of wordmark on pants and subtle patterns/logos on uniform

-Changed tribal pattern on uniform

-White and green helmets are glossy. Black helmet is matte with chrome decals and facemask.

-They are called the 'Rainbow Warriors' so it only makes sense to have a rainbow on at least one of the uniforms.

The alternate jersey is what really makes me love this set, and I think you embodied Hawaii really well here. Stunning. I have no critiques, excellent excellent job
