Although TCU isn't officially unveiling its new Nike football uniforms until closer to the season, thanks to social media such as Facebook and Twitter, images (like the one above) have been circulating all week. It started Monday when Horned Frogs' receiver Josh Boyce tweeted a picture of the new Nike Pro Combat helmet, seen here:
Then TCU athletics posted photos of the uniforms to its Facebook site, including this shot (below). It's a good sign when the mannequin is shinier than the uniform. Football uniforms shouldn't look like disco outfits. So kudos to Nike and TCU personnel who helped design the look. Sort of retro and mean looking.
I like the fact that the design is simple and clear. The use of black, a longtime uniform staple, looks classy and no nonsense, sort of like the type of football TCU hopes to play in the Big 12. Those helmets are pretty sweet looking, as well.
Let me know what you think of the new look. If I was a catty fashion expert on E! I'd lavish hyperbolic praise. Oh, what the heck ... they look fabulous!
