NCAA Yakball Voting

Recommended Posts

So for the Final Four, each team will have to create an alternate uniform so we aren't voting on the same sets for another 4 days. But here is the catch, they have to use the uniform trend that I will randomly assign. Basically, putting each designer into a corner, and having them fight out of it.

UNCG will have to make their alternate a fauxback

Alabama will have to use a form of gradient

Missouri will have to use an oversized logo

Michigan will need to use dark grey

All of those were randomized, so I again have no control over how it ended. After all the concepts are turned in, I will post the bracket and links. Designers, just get your concepts to me in some way, it doesn't matter. Just put the alternate uniform on a page with the uniform set you originally submitted.

Michigan and Alabama will face off

UNCG and Missouri will face off

Enjoy!

Can't wait to see the final four. Will the two teams in the championship have to make a new uniform too?

Nah, just the original set+this new alternate from here on out.

Well as so many Cinderella stories often play out, reality has caught up in a big way. Congrats to CDixon, UNCG is a great looking kit. Thanks to everyone for their votes. Can't wait to see the Final Four designs.

Bummer. It's been a while since I entered a contest around here so I'm happy to have made it as far as I did, but I really would've loved to be in the final four.

I'm curious as to why some of you chose not to vote for Ohio.

I would have, but I'm a Michigan fan and that design was fantastic too.

Wow. That Michigan-Alabama matchup will be a good one!

Sort of off topic but, I'm surprised no one did Boise State, blue turf and all.

Hmmm I thought this was the case for a lot of the concepts that didn't make it. I'm a Michigan fan too and I honestly don't think the Michigan set is in any way superior to that of Ohio's so that turnout was suprising

I was thinking that too. That Michigan set should've been out in the first round IMO. Oh well.

Lights Out will take it in the NIT tournament in a few weeks, for sure.

I'm not sure if it is safe to be making accusations about voting motives. Sure, it isn't that big a deal in the scheme of things, and I had the same worries at first, but I like to think that the people here care more about design than seeing their favorite team win a contest that quite frankly has no bearing on the real world whatsoever.

I agree that it is shocking that Ohio was knocked out, it was one of two concepts (along with NAU) that I was prepared to vote for over my own if I advanced that far, and while I'm disappointed to see them eliminated, the four who moved on made some great concepts, and I'd like to wish them all good luck in the next round.

Solid work, everyone! Final four has some great potential with Mike's twists. West was easily the toughest section of the bracket, but hey! Luck of the draw. Can't wait to see the NIT, too. Nice work running this, Mike, and thanks everyone who voted for NAU!

The thing I didn't like about Ohio was the speed stripes are kind of templatey

McCarthy was just asking for c&c, basically. Atleast that's how I read it.

It's funny. From the start, I thought yours was the best. Good luck to all!

I didn't really like NAU's. I understand how it got out of the first round, but after that it should've been eliminated. I think it was way too gaudy.

I don't know what that means or why it's a detriment.
