Spitblood Fashion Gurus

You know how if you're going to a wedding that's out of town, your girlfriend (or wife...or escort, depending on your station in life) will fret for weeks and weeks about what she's going to wear? Well, welcome to the guy version of that. In trying to visualize any well-anticipated game (such as the Fiesta Bowl), you've got to know what uniforms your team will be wearing, right? At some schools, you would just have to know whether your squad would be the home or away team. But at a school like TCU (who will be the home team, by the way), you start to feel like Oregon Junior because there are so many possibilities.

So if the readers of Spitblood were in charge of packing TCU's equipment truck for the trip to Arizona, which uniforms would you choose?

A) The purple jerseys and black pants:


B) The black jerseys with purple pants:



C) The Nike Pro Combat Gear:


or D) Other (Purple on white? Purple on purple? Black on black?)

Im a Combat fan. They're sleek, fast, and we're undefeated wearing them.

BUT, black on black makes my pants tight, soo....

Black on Black will never happen again.

My vote is for the Pro Combat.

I vote B, Black Jersey with Puple Pants, keep it simple for the Bowl game with a national audiance. I would hate to be labeled the next Oregon if we come out in our Combats with a lot of people seeing us play for the first time. We are a classy school with the classiest coach in the nation, so lets keep our uniforms classy too.

I kind of would like to see TCU buck the trend and wear white at home. Our all-whites are by far our best look, in my opinion.

But if we're going to be conformist and wear dark jerseys as the home team, my vote for the bowl game is black jerseys with purple pants.

Yeah what's the deal with those pro-combat jerseys? Can we wear them whenever now or was that some nike contracted thing for one time use? If not, the black jersey-purple pants combo is fucking awesome. And we've already beat Boise in those once, so if it aint broke, dont fix it.

I'm for Purple Shirts Black Pants.

We will be in the national spotlight and I want to be "sportin" our colors.

However I really couldn't give a shit. What ever the players want to wear, let em wear it.

purp shirts, black pants.

combat was a one time thing. i think we should act like we've been here before (though we havent) and not wear 'special' jerseys. just wear what we always do and take care of business on the field.

I'm a fan of the Pro Combat uniforms. Especially the helmets with the blood stripes. But if not those, then black on purple. It's very classy looking, before we go murder the smurfs.

Texas Hammer said...

Combat was not a one time thing and many have hinted that they'll be our home uniforms next year.

While it was originally a Nike promotion for "rivalry week", the uniforms were given to the participating schools to use as they pleased.

Team will be pumped regardless of the uniform worn, but "special" unis always seem to provide an extra spark (except when playing Tulane at home).

I would choose the Nike Pro Combat Pants and Regular Purple Jersey and Purple Helmet.

THEFINCH said...

I put a poll on the sidebar to vote

Little moe with the gimpy leg said...

Combat (helmet and pants) w our regular black jersey. Black out... Purple shoes, socks, gloves, and those arm bands that some of them wear.

Sir Wesley Willis said...

We beat them last year with the black jersey look... I say do it again.

Not Seedless said...

Purple on purple... That would be legit... Never been done..

hornedtoad said...

Black Jersey + Purple Pants.
Anyone who said pro combat is probably wearing an affliction tee right now

Nick Papagiorgio said...

A KillerFrogs poster said we will be in the pro combat unis. I haven't heard anything one way or another though.

I hate those uniforms up close, but they look good from a distance and will look good on TV.

LENEtown Fizzle said...

Middle Man said...

"You can hate on me all you want to, but what can you possibly say to somebody who looks like Rambo, pretty much, without his shirt off?" One of the few Jersey Shore quotes to go with my Affliction shirts.

Combat, but I would be interested to see how the combat jersey/pants would look with the regular helmet
