RE: C-USA Texas Traveling Trophy... Almost
Anyone that wants to submit a better title graphic, I'm open to new ideas.

For those that do not know my original idea. The flag was supposed to be the 4 Texas program's logos set at their locations within the outline of the state of Texas. The words "Come and Take It!" were to be across the bottom of the flag. If the Texas was designed to look like a buckle that would be nice too.

Anyone good and making graphics?

RE: C-USA Texas Traveling Trophy... Almost
This would be huge for the conference!

Between that and the florida twins and 100 miles of hate and usm v latech this conference will be hands down the most exciting one in no time. MWC and AAC have some great programs, so do we. What we have that they don't is a hornet's nest of rivalries. We all hate each other 04-cheers

Charlotte, ODU, Marshall and UAB should have an Appalachian-ish competition too. The wheels kind of fall off with that theme.

I wasn't trying to derail this thread but this Texas showdown is brilliance.

I like working the Texas Outline in to this, and i think it needs a C-USA logo on there too (even more so than the schools' logos). I might take a cut this weekend but I'm no gfx expert.

The Texas USA Trophy. Come and Take It, UTEP.

RE: C-USA Texas Title Champ: Rice
In a few hours, the current C-USA Texas Champ, Rice, will tee it up against the #14 ranked Stanford Cardinal. What chance do you think they have of winning? 5% 10% 40%? How will it will play out tonight?

According to one site, we have a 1.7% chance. According to another, a 3.6% chance. According to some of our "fans", a 0.0% chance.

I will just wait and watch. I once saw a 19 point underdog Rice team win...by 28...on the road.

As much as I like the buckle concept, it appears to be taken. Colorado State has been holding up a title belt all through their curb stomping of Oregon State....

But, an enormous rodeo style cowboy buckle on one of those leather belts with the university's name on the back would be very interesting and unique.

Like this, but with a C-USA Texas Champ and a place to fix the team logo. Very tacky. I like it.

More good ideas. If this ever went viral the traveling trophy should be a belt buckle. I know a lot of real Texas cowboys and they take their belt buckles seriously.

I'm not good at all or better yet I have no idea how to do graphic designs. This would be my idea. A whole lot better though. Without the white outlines of the logos. Someone please help. [img]http://[Image: IMG_0992.jpg][/img]

That's pretty good... just make all the logos out of rhinestones and we should be good to go!

RE: C-USA Texas Title Champ: Rice
Week 2 is finally here, and Rice must travel to UTEP and put their Championship Buckle on the line. Neither team looked like champs in week 1.

Rice was blown out by 55 point against #14 Stanford.

UTEP was blown out by 49 points against #7 Oklahoma.

I personally think UTEP will take the title on Saturday. Other opinions about how this will play out?

That video would help sell tickets but when the fans arrived, they would be sorely disappointed. 03-banghead

Ha! That's about right. We're certainly having an inauspicious start to our Buckle Title. Not too worried. One of our Texas teams will have a good season. Hopefully, that team will end up with the Buckle.

With about 3 minutes to go in the 4th, Rice is ahead of UTEP by a score of 31-14. It appears Rice will defend the Belt Buckle.

Congratulations Rice!
