Not that it seems to create much of a competitive advantage. Remember when Utah broke out their military camouflage jerseys in a big game against TCU last year, then got routed like the Republic Guard?
The previous season TCU wore "Combat" uniforms against the Utes and accessorized them with a helmet that featured a "horned frog skin print" with red lines that represented the blood that a horned frog will shoot from its eyes when under attack. N-i-i-i-ce.
But now that is so yesterday. TCU coach Gary Patterson recently appeared at a press conference in which three of his players modeled their new unis, which consist of several different ensembles — a cute purple top with black pants or the more formal black top look with spiffy purple pants, plus the all-white road uniform with black accents.
Here is how one writer described TCU's gridiron fashions in the Horned Frogs Examiner — "a black jersey features purple lining on the collar and sleeves while the numbers are a crisp white;" (the pants have) a scaling pattern and "a black stripe runs along the sides and wraps across the back rear ... a purple belt finishes the ensemble." Cleats "feature the scaled skin look of the horned frog — overall the 2010 uniform builds off the look created in 2009."
