Rose Bowl uniforms unveiled

Thanks to Travis Brown of ESPN Dallas for getting these pics out ASAP via his twitter feed. Looks like about what the Frogs wore for the Oregon State game earlier this year, although maybe we'll see some minor differences when more photos become available later. What do you think about them?

***UPDATE***
Here are some additional pics (or at least one) from Nike's website. Thanks to reader bscooter26 for the find.

Really wanted them to use some purple in the uniform, since that is the primary color.

im not liking this. they look like the uniforms from starship troopers. where is our silver football.

Anne said...

Not enough purple! I don't like them.

Eric Junker said...

All of the uniforms are unimaginative. They basically either took Pro Combats from earlier in the year and mixed them with regular uniforms (see Boise) or just removed a few details from Pro Combats (see TCU and removing purple accents from Oregon St game unis).

Seriously, did they really pay someone a salary to design these?

CounselorFrog said...

They suck, getting kind of tired of becoming Oregon.

shortnkerley's said...

Honestly, if the players like them, and recruits like them, and we play well in them, I couldn't give a shit what they look like. Besides, if Nike likes us enough to pimp us out all the time, I'll take it. But yeah, need to see more pictures before I can comment on what they look like.

Not one purple accent.

John Kimble said...

Damn, not digging those. We needed to go old school, raw raw, and have a classic look, maybe even throw in the Flying T. The simpler the better in my opinion...

chrislipscomb said...

I would rather see us wear our white on white road uniforms.

Super Frog said...

are we blacking out the rose bowl?

GOPfrog said...

Not blacking out the color of our button downs in the stadium if that is what you are referring to. Purple is our color, lets stick with that. Would rather see a bunch of purple in the stands to stand out, black tends to blend and we all saw how a blackout worked for Utah this year.

THEFINCH said...

I'm sick of this crap, we are trying to gain respect and form an identity on the national landscape of college football. Quit being uniform whores and wear some damn purple.

shortnkerley's said...

Seriously? Just one more picture on that site? Oh, and it also looks like Boise, Oregon, and Florida's jerseys still kept their main colors. What the Hell?!?

spoiledguineafrog said...

are we obligated to wear the unis? if not let's ditch em. if so, well....

Slay Purple said...

As much as I don't approve of these jerseys I still think it is pretty badass that Nike keeps "redesigning?" our jerseys. Oregon doesn't always have the best jersey's, but they are still known for having some sick jerseys. Additionally, Oregon has gotten some sick recruits as of late, so if we can get some more 4 stars to watch us dominate Wisconsin and think "Those are sick jerseys" I am okay with that.

Now that the regular season is over is the recruiting section going to be re-vamped? Because we just got Ladarius Brown (4-star) to turn down A&M, Alabama, Auburn & OU to come to TCU & I don't think anybody knows...

buffalo said...

turrible.

I HATE H said...

Sorry that Nike picked us to be one of like 5 schools to give them uniforms for there bowl game. Sounds pretty fucking sweet to me. I think the jerseys are awesome and everyone needs to stop acting like we are better than Nike for designing like 10 different uni-combinations. What we all should do is write Del Conte and Phil Knight thank you letters for making this kind of shit happen.
Here's an idea.
High school recruit walks into our equipment room and sees one road jersey, that all you guys want, and one home jersey. That’s real exciting welcome to the 1940's. And lets call Nike and tell them to stop doing this because we don't think its’ cool
or
Recruit sees more jersey combinations than a local foot locker and sees all the free shit that comes with it. They See the new shoes, they see the new designed gloves, they see the new gear that goes on under the pads, and ect

WOW can’t believe that people are bitching because the worlds largest sports apparel company has taken the time to design little ole TCU new jerseys for just about every big game we have. Maybe we should all lose the smugness.

Thank you NIKE and keep it up.

Chris said...

I HATE H, I think all we wanted was a little purple in the uniform. Just so you know TCU's school colors are really purple and white. I don't mind the black. I just thought having purple on national television would be cool. Nike did a great job with the new home uni this year. It is really cool that TCU is 1 of 4 schools to get this. What really matters is that we beat the crap out of Wisconsin. GO FROGS!!!

BuckNasty said...

Belt looks purple, purple around the numbers, and the shoes look purple. I agree with I Hate H. Lets just be thankful for being considered to get new unis all the time. And who cares what we think if the team likes them and are pumped about wearing another new jersey.

LA Frog said...

At least we dont have Chernobly-glowing socks like Oregon!

Tanner said...

well penn st. has only one jersey for home/away. one helmet. texas has a few modifications, oklahoma the same, nebraska, etc.

and that same high school recruit doesn't have a problem going to those schools.

the argument isn't that we don't want the new hotness. its that these are just plain ugly. (also, with no purple.)

frognation said...

I like the Jerseys, purple pants would be better

spoiledguineafrog said...

PS - several posters on THAT OTHER SITE are claiming to have e-mailed delconte complaining about the new unis....how embarrassing

D said...

tcu logo on helmet looks to be purple.

socks - purple

purple stripe down the legs.

i think theyll look pretty slick up close in pasadena

VikingFrog said...

It looks like the belt is purple.

Also looks as if there is a purple glow around the numbers on that Nike Blog.

Obviously not a lot, but looks as though purple wasn't entirely left out.

My opinion... whatever color we can beat the fuck out of the Badgers in, I'm all for it.

Note to self...

spoiledguineafrog-

You can say "killerfrogs" here, we won't censor what you say like we're in North Korea over here.

Joe said...

I will admit, I would rather see more purple. However, I am all for whatever helps sustain and advertise the football program.

Also, complaining about a uniform's trim feels wrong - like I am supporting SMU or Baylor on their message boards. I just hope we play as I well as I think in the Rose Bowl.

Slay Purple said...

I just want to know if the red armbands are because we spit blood out of our eyes, are going to the rose bowl, or if they just support the Rooster...

spoiledguineafrog said...

lyle lanley -

i didnt think you would, just want to make sure y'all dont think im a traitor for checking it every now and then...

I HATE H said...

Tanner

Nebraska = holiday bowl
Penn State = outback bowl
Texas= No Bowl

thats a great idea, lets be like them.

LENEtown Fizzle said...

you're such a traitor guinea...i cant believe this.

Tanner said...

i hate h,

yes, i know what bowls they are going to, and believe me that i hate all of them.

but i don't think i have to discuss the success that each program has had. are you really going to argue that they don't get good recruits? come on, man. like it or not, they often land big fish. you're the one that suggested we wouldn't land recruits by somehow having a smaller selection of jerseys.

spoiledguineafrog said...

forgive me lenetown...i should have known you would be the most disappointed.

gwyn said...

They need to LOSE those ugly black jerseys NOW!! There is such little purple in them that we won't even know it's TCU we are rooting for in the Rose. Wisconsin will look like Wisconsin and TCU will look like...., well they will be playing incognito! All they have to do is wear the shoes because all the other uniforms are made by Nike. Who approved that mess? It's PURPLE POWER and purple uniforms!!

Mistletoad said...

Think it is rediculous for anyone to suggest that being one of Nike's High School Fashion Whores will help us in recruiting...USC/ Bama/LSU/Oklahoma/Texas don't seem to have any problems recuiting. We are going to the most Richest/most
Historical event in football and
we showup looking lke this.?. At
least lose the pants and give us our Helmets back!!!!
