Alumni Appreciation: Champ’s Player Logos

In the spirit of using player silhouettes as the League logo, the NBA and MLB being notable examples, the NCDA also has a few of its own.

A talented designer, he also refined the main NCDA logo which these “Player Logos” are inspired by. This small series started after work on refining the main logo, and reflecting the Nationals 2010 shirt design.  Continue reading “Alumni Appreciation: Champ’s Player Logos”

Editorial: Player Mentality

Recently I attended a men’s basketball game between DePaul and Northern Illinois, both of which also have dodgeball clubs. NIU may play a game or so sometime this season. Anyways, DePaul barely won this basketball game. I don’t think it’s any surprise as to how inept DePaul men’s basketball can be. Towson, I do feel your painContinue reading “Editorial: Player Mentality”

Introducing “24/7: Road to the Michigan Dodgeball Cup”

However, these four schools are four of the top schools in the history of the NCDA, with a total of six National Championships in the eight year history of the NCDA.

So what is this “24/7: Road to the Michigan Dodgeball Cup” then?
