I love the idea of a team named the Devils playing in San Angelo. Really clever work here, amazing stuff!

I'm glad somebody picked up on that!

 

The last of our HBCUs, the Mississippi Christian Falcons have a rich history of both success on the gridiron, and producing strong leaders in the classroom. The Falcons won 2 national championships in the 1990s before the team was suspended from play in 1997 due to issues with hazing and recruiting. They have since returned to the straight and narrow, but haven't regained that level of success.

Up next we have the Mobile State Minotaurs. The university was founded in 1941, but has only fielded a football team since 1990. They were one of few schools to begin play in the Super Series (Division I at the time) without starting in a lower division. They have always been known as a pass heavy offense owning most of the offensive records in that category, but due to habitually mediocre defense, the Minotaurs have never made it beyond the first round of the playoffs.

The University of San Antonio has had a checkered history in Super Series football. In the 1970s, the University had been complicit in covering up a cheating ring involving several student athletes, had engaged in illegal recruiting, and was involved in a scheme where student athletes were being essentially paid to play. When the NCAA discovered this, they gave the program a 3-year "death penalty" in 1977. During this time, all players were given a full release allowing them to transfer. The Sentinels were unable to field a team again until 1983.

 

University of San Antonio

Location: San Antonio, Texas
Type: Private University
Founded: 1913

Major Rivals: Central Texas, UT-Fort Worth

To finish off the Gulf Coast Conference, we head down to Shreveport. The Shreveport Loggers have had a solid football program since the university was founded in 1938, but have never made it to the National Championship Finals losing in the semifinals a record 7 times. Their main rival is the Baton Rouge Reds, and being a Baptist school against a Catholic one, it is known as the Bayou Bible Bowl. 

 

Shreveport University

Location: Shreveport, Louisiana
Type: Private University
Founded: 1938

Religious Affiliation: Baptist

Major Rivals: Baton Rouge, Mississippi State

Up next we head out to the East Coast Conference.

 

00-ECC+MAP.png

 

Our first school of the ECC is the Bronx University Bruins. For years, they have had a heated rivalry with the Manhattan State Titans resulting in some of the greatest college football games of all time including the 1972 National Championship semifinal where the 10-1 Bruins got revenge on the undefeated and top ranked Titans to earn a National Championship final berth. 

 

Bronx University

Location: Bronx, New York
Type: Private University
Founded: 1890

Major Rivals: Manhattan State, Utica State

National Championship Runner-Up: 1 1972

Up next are the Central New York Bengals. The Bengals had a very bland script logo and an overly realistic tiger head logo for several years along with 1980s Cincinnati Bengals knockoff uniforms until the school rebranded in 2008.

 

Central New York University

Location: Cortland, New York
Type: Public University
Founded: 1933

Next we head to Connecticut for the Connecticut State Destroyers. Up until 1999 they were known as the Mohegans, before a student vote was taken for a new moniker. The Destroyers beat out the Royals (from New London), Cutters (Coast Guard), Eagles (Famous Coast Guard ship), and Warriors by a large margin.

 

Connecticut State University

Location: New London, Connecticut
Type: Public University
Founded: 1914

The guys who elected teams to the super league had a large ship bias and you can’t change my mind. 
 

 

That being said I kinda wished we would have seen a retooled version of the ship logo you made for your North Korean hockey series. Think it would have paired well with the monogram. Crazy unis though, might be my favorite look!

Up next we head to the District of Columbia for the D.C. Tech Americans. A newer school, the Americans haven't had the same success some of the older programs have had, but still field an exciting team every year. Though they haven't accomplished anything in the playoffs, D.C. tech has a habit of upsetting highly ranked teams who were expecting an easy win, and have the interesting distinction of being undefeated against #1 ranked schools winning games in 1977, 1982, 1983, 1991, 1999, 2012, 2013, and 2017. They wear uniforms inspired by Evel Knievel due to their nickname of the "Daredevils" for how often they run trick plays and wild offensive formations. 

 

Technical University of the District of Columbia

Location: Washington, DC
Type: Public University
Founded: 1961

Major Rivals: Philadelphia State, Baltimore State

Next we head to Manhattan for the Manhattan State Titans. Though they haven't done much in the playoffs, the Titans are notorious for their bitter rivalries with the Bronx and non-conference Bayamon, which have been known to include all-out brawls. 

 

Manhattan State University

Location: Manhattan, New York
Type: Public University
Founded: 1892

Major Rivals: Bronx, Bayamon

Up next we head to Norfolk, Virginia home to the world's largest naval base, which is the inspiration for the team's name, the Captains. The Captains were a powerhouse throughout the 1960s and 1970s, and are on their way back up finishing the 2018 season ranked number 3 behind the National Champion LA State Breakers and Runner-Up Kansas City Yellow Jackets. They have a major rivalry with the University of Dover that is well attended by members of the Navy and Air Force.

 

University of Norfolk

Location: Norfolk, Virginia
Type: Private University
Founded: 1906

Major Rivals: Dover, Raleigh

National Championship Runner-Up: 1 1967

Next we head up to the North Country for the Northern New York Bucks. The Bucks play their home games in Watertown, New York, but also play one of the service schools annually on nearby Fort Drum. They do pretty well recruiting Canadian players due to their location close to Ontario and Quebec.

 

Northern New York University

Location: Watertown, New York
Type: Public University
Founded: 1890

Major Rivals: Central New York, Syracuse

Up next we have the classic look of the Philadelphia State Maroons. An older college, they have had essentially the same look for the last 60 years, with only minor changes. They have had a major rivalry with DC Tech since they came onto the scene playing for the Ben Franklin Trophy. They also have a heated rivalry with New Jersey State.

 

Philadelphia State University

Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Type: Public University
Founded: 1873

Major Rivals: DC Tech, New Jersey State

To finish up the ECC, we head to Utica. The Utica State Buccaneers have, with the exception of the addition of a red jersey and addition of the name on the back, had the same look since day 1 of the football program. 

 

Utica State University

Location: Utica, New York
Type: Public University
Founded: 1945

Major Rivals: Central New York, Bronx

Now we head a little further north up the coast for the New England Conference.

 

00-NEW+ENGLAND+MAP.png

 

Our first school is the University of Dover. Up until 1996, the team was known as the Indians. They re-branded to the Flyers inspired by the major Air Force base in Dover. They were originally a member of the ECC, but switched over to the New England Conference in 2003. Although they use the silver helmet and pants for most games, sometimes they will wear all white as well, even at home.

 

University of Dover

Location: Dover, Delaware
Type: Private University
Founded: 1914

Major Rivals: Norfolk, Raleigh
