the American Association of College Athletics (First try at fictional Uni's!)

Recommended Posts

the AACA is a fictional colleget sporting sanction that was started in the mid-60s to provide an alternative to the NCAA and NAIA, All schools are comepletely fictional and do have some backstory. There are 9 conferences so far and counting (This includes 17 independant teams).

The conferences are as follows and I will be psoting them in order

The Golden Pacific Conference (14 teams / 2 divisions)

The Tennessee Valley Conference ( 11 Teams )

The Atlantic and Gulf Conference (15 teams / 2 Divisions )

Eastern Lakes Conference (8 Teams)

The Atlantic 8 Conference (9 teams)

Independants (17 Teams)

Grand West Sports League (7 teams)

Metro Lakes Conference (8 teams)

Virginialina Conference (7 teams)

Plus there's a possibility of more......

Now I do wanan note some things

1.) I am not good at logos, a lot of these schools will use either re-colored logos of other teams or Webdings, or even just text. I will make mention of any logos that are premade.

2.) I'm new to this, so don't expect a lot of flashy designs. I am keeping things within my limit.

I'm interested by this.

However, I recommend that you do more than just recolor other people's logos, which seems to get a lot of people into trouble on these boards.

Even if you are new to this, it never hurts to try to push your limits. If you don't, you'll never improve.

I have always thought that some Webdings would make good logos, though.

If you do just want to use Clip Art (or use Clip Art for inspiration), I'd recommend http://www.wpclipart.com/. It's got a lot of good designs, and all of it is free and in the public domain, so you don't have to worry about copyright issues.

Though, again, if you want most people on these boards to take you seriously, I'd recommend that you try to make your own logos.

Thanks for all the tips guys! I will use them in the future

I will be posting 3-4 schools at a time

Golden Pacific Conference

History: The Golden Pacific Conference started of as one of the original AACA Confrences. It had, at its inception, 7 schools from the state of California in the 70s privates schools, Cal Wesleyan and Parker College joined. Expansion happened again in the 80s when Coloumbia Christan and Oregon-Coos Bay joined the conference after the Pacific Forest Conference they were apart of shut down. Expansion continued as several west coast independants joined. they included scrappy Nevada Tech, luckless Winnemuca State and finally, the newcomers on the block Central Arizona. The Conference now has 14 teams and is composed of two divsions. The Championship game is held each year in Sacremento.

NAME: Nevada Polytechnical University (NTech)

LOCATION: Sparks,NV

NICKNAME: Coyotes

CONFERENCE: Golden Pacific (North Division)

FOUNDED: 1970

FIRST SEASON: 1972

PREDICTION: 3rd

INFO: Nevers a really Strong team historically, NTech has expirienced a surgein the past few years, and managed a 8-3 record last year. The Coyotes also were know for the lopsided rivalry with their bretheren in Reno (University of Nevada), which tended to favor the Wolfpack. The rivalry stopped in the mid90s when Nevada moved up to D-I. As for the uniforms NTech is know to have some rather conservitive Uniforms, which is saying alot considering how conservitive the AACA is in the first place.

Thanks for the complement guys, but I think kinda jumped in the deep end with this project. having to make almost 100 different school was probably not a good idea for a novice like me. When I get back from a trip I am taking this weekend Ii wll possibly post the other sevent eams I made and then hopefully go on towards a simpiler project such as the Minor League Foothball Idea I had.

Thansk again for the encouragement though. Making Uniforms up is fun, don't get me wrong. I look forward to doin more in the future!

You could spread it out a little bit. Maybe do one every week?

Just an FYI... every school in the University of California system uses some shade of blue with some shade of gold for its colors.
