Greetings my fellow magicians, one of the never ending arguments in sports is uniforms. Well after years of trying to explain my imagination of what I thought the best 'Cuse Jersey would look like I decided to sit down and photoshop some mockups. First Up the Home Uniform, notice that it is ORANGE. I can't understand how a team whose primary(only?) color is Orange never wears it at home thereby severely limiting the total number of appearances per season. If West Virginia and Michigan can wear Yellow at Home then why can't we wear our "ONLY" school color. And if we're wearing Orange at home, then we gotta wear our shade of blue on the road. Just look at how those colors pop against the darker blue. And the blue will no longer be "Superstitious" because we can't lose every game on the road (right?)
For the designs themselves I tried to incorporate elements from each decade of the Boeheim Era. The Stripes up and down the sides from the late 70s-80s, the cursive font from the late 80s-90s, the swoosh ball logo from the final four team in '96 thru the 2003 title, and of course the block "S" and Swooshes that our Nike overlords demand. The Orange Uniform above is my dream and If i had my way we'd have that for home and a blue version for the road. For the blue design below i tried a couple different options for variety and to try and show game action. Oh and yes I did photoshop Brandon Reese over the stock model
If Nike does want to steal these designs, all I ask in return is a complimentary customized set for myself
A Couple more for Fun after the Jump
For Fun I made a couple versions of what they might look like as European Soccer Styled Jerseys as members of the Big Premier East League, and don't pretend like those wouldn't be our shirt sponsors!
Let me know what you guys think in this poll and in the comments. I'd like to make this a regular feature because I have some more ideas but it will all depend on my commitment to sitting down and knocking them out. You can find me on twitter for my thoughts on the Orange and if you want to submit ideas @Brando415
