Special Uniforms for TCU vs. Oregon State?

For those of you that are fans of things like special one-time uniforms, this news is for you: TCU has been selected as one of 10 schools again this year to wear specially-designed Nike uniforms in at least one game this season. The uniforms- and the date of the specific games- will be announced in New York City on September 1st.

The fact that Oregon State is also one of the ten schools would lead you to believe that the Frogs' season opener against the Beavers would be the game in which TCU would be wearing the new duds. So the question is, would you rather have something like last year's Pro Combat uniforms worn against Utah and Boise State (as seen above), or throwbacks...maybe road white jerseys/road white pants and purple helmets with the Flying T? Let us know what you think in the comments section.

GP did make a comment a while back that we may see new uniforms in the opener.

Throwbacks could be cool, as long as the helmets are dark. It was once pointed out by Dan Jenkins that TCU has gone through it's worst eras when the helmets were light in color. I trust him on all things TCU.

I like flying T on anything. I didn't really like the one time helmets. I don't want us to become Oregon since we already have lots of color combinations.

I'm not a big fan of becoming another Oregon, either...except I think that recruits LOVE it.

I don't really like the new standard uniforms for 2010 (and I didn't like the pro combats last year), but our team could literally wear jerseys with gold sequins and Obama's face on them as long as they keep winning.

all white (including helmet) w/ just the old school horned frog on the side of helmet.

I guess throwbacks would be okay. I just need a win to wash the nacho cheese taste of that Fiesta Bowl out of my mouth.

while i like the flying T logo, I've heard that when we wear it we do terrible.

not sure if that is true, but if so, no way superstitious GP would allow flying T.

Well, we did suck back when we wore the Flying T logo, but that was a long time ago

Talked to a player and he said something about them having an icy blue/purple color for their pants and helmet.
