Haven't you ever wondered what it was like if Big Ten schools were pro soccer teams? (You haven't?)

Well, even if it's a thought that's never crossed your mind before, it has crossed the mind of Kevin Ives. He's the guy who shared these pretty awesome concepts of soccer jerseys Tuesday on Twitter. The mission: give the 14 Big Ten schools the pro-soccer treatment, sponsorships and all.

They look awesome, which is the best part about all this. But arguably my favorite aspect is the correctly affiliated corporate sponsorships. If you're paying close attention, you'll realize all the teams are hooked up with respective local corporate logos. For example, Northwestern is "sponsored" by Chicago-based insurance giant Allstate. Illinois is "sponsored" by Illinois-based Kraft Foods. Michigan State's jersey is adorned with the GM logo. And so on.

Be honest. Whether you like your football with a round ball or an oblong one, these are cool.
