Bama has one of the simplest uniforms in college football but constantly bring in 4 and 5 star kids so that can't be the draw.

Kids go where they can, 1) play, 2) win, and 3) get to the next level. Uniforms don't win championships, the players in them do. How about just leave the "black kids" thing alone.
i do think all kids in general will go places where there is stuff. so black, white, whatever, facilities help, im sure swag does a little but not as much as it did when Oregon started going all out. I mean free stuff is fun for everyone, not just one race...

I've never done a helmet before let alone one at an angle, I don't really care for the quality of it I just wanted to give you guys an idea of what it might look like. I don't know how to just post an image so I had to post it on an old twitter account.

We already use the palmetto logo on the field and it's pretty recognizable outside South Carolina, why not incorporate it as our logo. Maryland uses their state flag on its uniforms why couldn't we do that!?

I like EAtMoRTaYtEr's logo, especially the head-only look - that is identifiable and scary. Still a chicken, but a bad-ass chicken, and we distance ourselves from the cockfighting thing with no spurs shown. Let's do it.

No palmetto tree, out of staters will not understand what it is. Might think it is a marriage-awanna plant or sumthin.

Giant palmetto and gorget on the helmet would be awesome. I think that is how we should go. So out of staters don't under stand? So what. they don't need to. It looks awesome and it can be recognizable. That is what BRANDING is about. Also, it says "WE are the one that represent this state."

It's impossible to make a chicken be bad-ass. That is the entire problem.

Solving the problem.
1 we are the U of SC
2 place the flag symbol on the side of the helmets (this already brands the state nationally)
3 Gamecocks across the back
4 later when we are all dead and gone they will change the colors to blue and white/silver

Sorry to much coffee this morning or maybe not enough

That would be cool too. Am I the only one who thinks our brand/logo whatever you want to call it, needs a complete re-do/overhaul? We need a complete re-imagining of our BRAND. De-emphasize the chicken, re-enforce that we are THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA. That's why I like the idea of the inter-locking SC and the use of the State flag. That and our colors could make for some very cool logos/uniform combos.

I have never been a fan of most of the concept art containing the baseball logo on the football helmet, but I gotta say, that is pretty cool. Even if it was a black helmet, that would look sharp. We need to have a standard logo across all sports for sure. We also really need to emphasize the "garnet", since that is unique.

I am actually a fan of the current logo, but understand it is outdated. We should atleast keep that around for the "classic look".

I'm sorry to say this but I only associate that with baseball. Its a cool concept but I don't like it on a football helmet. If we are going to change any logo, just make the Gamecock bigger and remove the Block C. The best and most recognizable logos should be simply enough that a child can draw them (Tiger Paw, Tennessee T, Texas Longhorn, Etc.)

I like the uniforms as they are, with maybe a special jersey like the Wounded Warrior ones, every blue moon.

1. Win
2. Recruit (goes along with winning obviously)
3. Step up social media presence
4. Have some sort of slogan/marketing campaign and go off with it (I'd love to see "Effort, Toughness, Discipline" more)

Hate to make a comparison to the Upstate school, but this is what they did, and they won a kind of important game a few days ago.

I like how the interlocking "SC" is only used in baseball. The look of it has baseball written all over it, and it's arguably the most successful program we have right now, so I like how it's distinguished and separated from the Block C used everywhere else.
