A subjective blog for TCU Horned Frog faithful.
Why aren't his eyes bloodshot from smoking all that doja?
Awful. Tcu spent years building up its brand, and our logo was part of that. No need fie this drastic change.
Maybe it's just the picture on here but it looks blue-ishObviously any change will be met by hesitant fans but I don't think it is just god awful. Do I wish it looked better? Yes. How would I change it? I really don't know. The horned frog is a hard mascot to create a logo of. I will withhold my judgement until I see it on the uniforms and helmets.
Ugh, HATE IT.
Kinda reminds me of the MWC logo.
Dear god, this is terrible...
Not sure what to think. Don't really mind it. Wonder how it will be displayed on the helmet? Aren't they getting rid of the arched TCU as well?
reminds me of the boise bronco. mull that one over.
I really liked the old one. Why on earth would anyone change it?
Looks a little too Canadian footballish to me. Or sun belt directional school.
It's not so bad. You people sound like you belong on killerfrogs or something.
Ewww tanner is right, it does have some similarities toward the bronco.
No thank you!
I didn't realize komodo dragons were native to the region.
Has no one else noticed that the frog only has THREE LEGS??
No good! The current logo is much better. If you're going to change it - at least make it an upgrade.
No No No No. Not good.
Not crazy about it. What's wrong with the current horned frog?
No!! I'm opposed to change anyways, but if you're going to change it at least make it better.
NO. NO. No.
Good pt gen125, I kind of like it
Spitblood commenters come out of the wood work for new logo bashing!!!
I agree with vikingfrog. Moving to the Big12 is change enough. UT doesn't need "rebranding" neither do we
We were just starting to make the old emblem iconic and nationally recognizable. We don't need "rebranding." Leave that to failing MLB franchises.
I tried to view the new frog with an open mind, thinking that I was just another no-change person. This is not a good change. Who wants a sleek toad? Not near mean enough. Looks like it should be stepping on a scale model of a Japanese city preparing to fight Mothra.
To make up an adjective, It's too graphic designy.
Though it's better than our old one. I know there's a lot of sentiment attached to it, but really... it's pretty bad. A horned toad with a six pack? Common, this is a little bit better.
I always thought our frog looked a little like a Pokemon...but this NEEDS some work. Currently, Im not a fan at all. I would stick with the old frog for sure. I like that 6-pack.
On it's own, it's pretty cool. Selling auto parts. For TCU football it is toooo muuuuch. I love my old frog (with and without a rose in its mouth).
Horrible, horrible, horrible! Don't fix it if it's not broken!
Sucks. Sucks hard.
I would change the arched TCU before I changed the horned frog
looks alright i guess. looks like he has a tumor in his back right leg or something.
looks like some odd dragon lizard. God this is awful.
We students will fight this! Our frog is beloved
LoL good luck, bud ^
but really, this looks like a sick joke
I shouldn't have a vote. Just noticed that there is a star on the chest of our current frog.
Why do I get the feeling this is just a shameless attempt by Nike to make sure Patterson won't put the Frog on the helmets.
the old horned frog was much much better. I mean, you have to stare at the thing for a few minutes just to figure out what it is & why it looks like there's some kind of awkward growth on it's left hind leg. not good. not good at all.
eh. That is all this logo brings to mind. And that our current logo is supremely better. No need to change it.
Can someone please provide the back story as to why this came about? Is this a Nike deal? Crap, what in the world are we doing? Maybe we should drop the "purple" and "Christian" while we are at it? Screw it, let's go for broke and move the entire U to Dallas or back to Waco!
Just not a fan of it, in fact i hate it!
Has anyone seen Monsters, Inc.? This looks like Randall, the villain: http://images.wikia.com/disney/images/f/fa/Randal.jpg
I have gone back and forth on this since seeing it last night. Then I put it side by side with our cartoon frog, and had the startling revelation that this logo is a dramatic improvement. Our old logo looked childish and honestly a little dumb. I was shocked. The old logo had never bothered me before, mostly because I had never thought about it. We'll get used to this one. I think it has a lot of potential. Maybe a few tweaks here and there. But more adaptable than the cartoon.
check out this logo, just an update version of the one we have now.http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/85182-tcu-horned-frogs-rebrand/
It looks a bit rabid.I don't like this at all.
I agree with the guy that says you all sound like a bunch of Killerfrogs posters. I'm disappointed in your attitude.
You know, if they just included the head, not a full body, and make the eyes red, I would like it more. While I do like the old one, it was a little too fat, which gave it a bullfrog like appearance. So it was time for an upgrade, but just not this.
Consider that what you think is a third leg isn't actually a third LEG, persay....
A lot of comments about this "third leg" business. I do believe it is supposed to be its tail.
Personally, I like it. I reminds me of the Frog statue in the middle of campus. Could it be tweaked and improved a bit? Sure. But it's definitely on the right path and am improvement over the squatty frog with a 6 pack.
I dont think its the worst thing in the world, but I think it could be better...
I feel like I'm the only person that digs it.
Sick of them jacking with the uniforms. Go back to the Rose Bowl year uniform and stick with it. Last year's new # design is ridiculous as well.... (and they startet the year off without the frog!)WHO is making these decisions? Get an identity and stick with it!
Billy T, what is the Rose Bowl year uniform? We wore a different uniform every game that season.
Rose Bowl season were the ones with "horned frogs" printed across the front, just in different color variations. Like the initial pro combat unis, sans the fancy pants
What's wrong with the old logo?
if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I do not like it at all! People know our current logo, so we need to leave it the same. We finally have brand recognition...don't ruin that!
When you cut the logo down to just the head it looks really freakin' sweet.
Nooo! Too busy. Surprised it doesn't have a long tongue catching a fly. How about No Frog on the helmet - only "TCU."
Change is never acceptable for most. In 50 years when they want this one upgraded everyone will hate that change as well. For the record, I like this upgrade and will defend it to the death. Meet me behind the school in 10 minutes. Welcome to the club, new frog logo! GO FROGS!!
Keep in mind, most of our curmudgeon fans hate the stadium upgrade as well. Let's not be like that.
We used to have a nice looking frog, not a fierce one...hard to find pictures of online, but similar to this: http://www.google.com/imgres?q=vintage+tcu+logo&um=1&hl=en&client=safari&sa=N&rls=en&biw=1123&bih=715&tbm=isch&tbnid=5qYQxLR2WgUZEM:&imgrefurl=http://beworthy.wordpress.com/category/tcu/&docid=jx27GFEtpfzB1M&imgurl=http://beworthy.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/img_1161.jpg&w=1600&h=1200&ei=DnlFT6PRKO7YiALjjsGiDg&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=264&sig=104214483085057810781&page=1&tbnh=152&tbnw=210&start=0&ndsp=16&ved=0CH8QrQMwDg&tx=73&ty=48
It's terrible! TCU please don't change the logo!
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. This is awful.
The problem isn't the logo.... it's having a little toad for a mascot.
Please - say it ain't so!
Someone needs to shove back when Nike wants to change something up for the sake of changing it up. TCU has a good "brand." Don't let a shoe company screw it up.
Absoute disaster. This. Is. Terrible.
This is really poorly done. Dislike - immensely!
Wow...that's bad...please don't
Me, no likee! Plus, I just got a tattoo of the old frog. Coincidence...?
