If NIKE ruled the B1G (REBOOTED! Nebraska + Maryland added 8/3/13)

As someone who bleeds Maize n' Blue... I don't mind the white in the home uniform at all. It's clean and appealing to the eye but, doesn't disrespect on the history of the program.

Hey everybody sorry for the delay. hopefully theres still some interest in this.

Ive completed NW and have some work done on some other schools so hopefully ill be able to churn some of the others out in the near future. For now, heres Northwestern.

I really wanted to keep the Northwestern stripe the prominent feature without copying the current UA design, which im sure Nike wouldnt be able to keep if they were to redesign this set. The large center stripe is lined by two very small black lines to tie the third color into the whole set without overdoing it. The stripe is also featured on the helmet. White and purple pants offer contrasting and monochrome options. A black set of pants would be available as well, i just didnt render it.

What do you think?

Any logo on the helmet for Northwestern? Also, put the pant stripe all the way up to the belt, and it'll look good.

Yeah i used the "N" as the helmet logo. I figured it was pretty skinny and wouldnt really be visible from the direct front or back so i didnt put it on. Im working on an action shot that shows the logo

Rutgers:

For Rutgers, i wanted to move them away from their craptastic set they have now with the unnecessary amounts of gray and utilize the red and white like they did in the past with a new look. The only thing i kept from the current set was the "burnished armour" effect on the helmets (how only found on the lower half of the lid)

I loved the oversized collars they used to have that reminded me of Penn State's old jerseys so i brought them back in all of their speed machine glory. Anthracite outlines on the numbers and wordmark, as well as NOB. A new sharp, tapered stripe system now adorns the helmet, jersey shoulders and side of the pants. The Slab serif R logo occupies each side of the helmet and the right hip of the pants.

Rutgers looks excellent despite the pant striping. This is better than the current uniforms they have.

Yeah, unfortunately there isnt a lot i can do about that haha. However, one my main goals throughout this project is to help distinguish one red team from another in the east.

That's not unique to the Big Ten.

Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia and to a lesser extent - South Carolina and Mississippi State are share a conference. Red + White is a popular uniform combo because. I will grant you a case to be made about certain teams being too similar. Wisconsin basically copied Nebraska's look and Indiana allegedly did the same thing with Oklahoma, which basically just makes the Hoosiers a version of Nebraska/Wisconsin with a red helmet instead of white.

Slightly off topic, when the B1G expanded with Maryland and Rutgers, I proposed they put all the red teams in one division. Oddly enough, it splits up the big four (OSU/NEB and UM/PSU), plus it evenly splits Wisconsin/Minnesota from Michigan State/Iowa.

Pretty fairly divided if you ask me. Also easy to remember which team is in which division.

Reds: Nebraska, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Indiana, Minnesota, Rutgers, Maryland

Not Reds: Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois, Northwestern, Iowa, Purdue

What I'm saying I that maybe Rutgers adding more and more grey to separate themselves from the other r/w teams is a good thing and that maybe he should run with it

All of these are incredible, especially the Rutgers set. It's modern, keeps the feel of a knights uniform, but isn't over the top.

Hey everybody i kinda let this series go by the wayside and havnt been able to work on it for a while. Ive had some time recently and ive decided to give this a reboot from top to bottom. Ive got a new vector template that ive been using to better show every aspect of each set (helmet template by Julius Seizure) so ill be using that. Ive re-visited some of the teams i had already completed and updated some things i wasnt happy with after further examination so ill post them first. I also made some progress on a few other teams and hope for have the final 3 done shortly. Any C&C/comments would be greatly appreciated

Penn State - The set has been primarily reverted to the style worn during the late paterno era (1993-2010). Stripes, etc have been updated with primarily metallic navy blue material. Oval nittany lion logo featured on collar, with a keystone being featured on the inside collar

Purdue - just some touchup work. The stripe scheme is now constant throughout the whoel set including the helmet. P logo on the helmet is now black instead of white lined in black. Numbers and wordmark on the home jersey have been switched from metallic silver to metallic gold. Black pants are now the standard for the away set. Both can be interchanged

The away jersey now features the new standard stripe scheme and a new number font has been used. Stripe scheme is now featured on the socks

Not feeling that "W" for Wisconsin. I like the flying "W" better, but I certainly do think it's time for a Bucky head to make an appearance on an alternate helmet.

I said it before and I'll say it again: I'd love to see a Wisconsin helmet with a front W that is just enormous, so large that it ends up almost looking like a wing-less Michigan helmet.

And to mjd77: Bucky is just too detailed for a helmet logo.
