Similar to my ND throwback, hopefully I can get some C&C on this one.

Heh, if you've ever heard of the Discworld series, a concept with no replies reminds me of the many I've done that have met the same fate...to the point I kinda feel like the God of Evolution. Few followers, and if I were like some whiny fanfiction writer I would've quit years ago :D but I believe too strongly in my own vision to just fade away like a :censored:.

Anyways, as I'm not a KU fan, but this is clearly modeled after a leather helmet/long sleeves-era uniform, maybe you could've mentioned something about the history behind the uniform that inspired this one. Far as what I can gleam, though, I can't help but feel a thinner KU would've been a better choice here.

I'll probably end up using this as my helmet logo when I update it, this helmet was used in the Gale Sayers era. I can't seem to find the picture of the long sleeves striped picture.... Believe me, by no means will I ever root for a Weis lead team again :lol:

Discrimihater's right. Slightly thinner letters might look better, especially if you're gonna intertwine, or overlap them...the "white space" becomes important in those types of designs.

It's a nice clean uni though, NDF. I like it.

I'm a KU fan and while I appreciate the retro look, I've never been excited about the Jayhawks playing in white helmets. I think it's time to bring back the royal blue helmets with the Jayhawk logo instead of the interlocking KU.

KU helmet...definitely go with that one. Though I can imagine a jersey the jayhawk helmet would go with, it's not this one. And since nobody else was gonna say it, I might as well: the lid you went with in the first post reminds me too much of Nebraska. Granted, the jersey would dispell any thoughts of the Huskers, but the helmet alone...you can put 2 and 2 together.

I like this Kansas option better. But it's already been used. Just tired of the interlocking letters look. KU has been using that look pretty much continously since 1990.

interlocking letters look

I like the interlocking KU letters, traditional and we are "K-U". The Bird look is ok, not as sharp as the KU letters IMO. Doesn't matter what our Jayhawks wear, we suck in football. Don't worry, I can say that, I'm a KU fan and grew up near Lawrence. Time will tell if we can compete again in football in the Big 12.
