We've talked about having a HHC shirt off and on for years and with the new arena coming up, now seems like a great time to make this happen.

 

Essentially our two biggest requirements are

 

1. The shirt needs to be red so you can wear it to a game

2. It needs to not violate any trademarks (You can't use the words "Huskers", "Cornhuskers" or have the Big N)

 

in addition to mentioning the HHC

 

My initial thoughts would be a front that has either (in white)

 

  • Nebrasketball
  • #Nebrasketball
  • Nebraska Basketball

The back would include "huskerhoopscentral.com

We'd probably need some other Slogan/graphic for the back. (maybe we'll develop a tagline for the HHC here!)

It would also be cool to incorporate the acronym "HHC" somewhere (maybe "HHC Est. 2005"?) 

Unless there was a compelling reason, this would also be all in white. (additional colors costs more)

 

I'm planning on a higher quality t-shirt (like an American Apparel) or something similar.

I'll also plan on making these available via online purchase.

 

After our initial conversationwe'll put stuff to a vote if necessary and then get a rough head count on people interested as that will also dictate the price. 

 

Please give your input on this.

Also keep in mind this is something that we would want the majority of our members to be proud to wear....in other words please keep your suggestions appropriate.

A couple years ago, Big Red Network came up with a tee-shirt that had a simple design that I really liked:

I think if you could incorporate the #Nebrasketball tag, the state outline, and HHC, it would be a pretty clean look for a shirt.  It would also make sense to use the state outline, since, you know, the Huskers are the only game in the state...

That's right!  I forgot about the state outline.  I agree that's a must have for the front as well.

How about a white state outline design (like the one on the pic above) only broken up by curvey basketball lines. The basketball lines would just be the red t-shirt color in the background. This would be on the front assuming you could get the state outline to look right incorporating a basketball design and then #Nebrasketball could be underneath it. On the back the HHC stuff could be incorporated. I think that basketball/solid white state of NE has potential if it looks right.

I am not a designer...but when someone shows me a design that is cool, I will ratify it...kind of like this quote:

 

I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description ["hard-core pornography"]; and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that. [Emphasis added.]

I think you mean something like this or this...i'm not sure if it's too hard to distinguish the ball rings or not.

I didn't include this, but you could also mean the state inside of a basketball.

Yes. Something like that. What I was originally thinking was a solid white state of Nebraska just like the girls shirt in the previous post with the basketball rings just being the red shirt behind the state. But I don't know how this would look.

I like #1 out of those three. I don't think it's too hard to figure out that they are basketball rings. It kinda makes a cool design. And if it says Nebrasketball on the shirt everyone knows its a basketball!

With the rings on the outside...and replace the Michigan Basketball with the #Nebrasketball hash?

 

I'm personally not married to the state outline, but maybe put the above design on the back and the state outline on the breast on the front?

Also, I really think that if there's a tagline anywhere it should be "The only show in the state!"  :D

Modify the look of the Mythagain shirt, which is very well designed & then include Nebraska's state team w/ #Nebrasketball & huskerhoopscentral.com both prominently displayed on the back.

Did they? Is that where I've seen that design? Anybody have any redzone pics from this last year to confirm this?

Did some quick research, and yes the redzone had the state outline/basketball line design last year. I agree that the Michigan shirt is well done. What would #NEBRASKETBALL surrounded by basketball rings look like? Too many letters? Maybe the ball would go from the first B to the last A or something.

I think one could make it work.

 

If you had two lines, #NEBRASKETBALL on top, then huskerhoopscentral.com beneath, it could square things up some.
