TCU's new uniforms epitomize 'Fear the Frog'

Texas Christian University’s Horned Frog football team will look a little different when it takes the field against LSU in the season opener on Aug. 31.
According to TCU’s Athletics Dept., the new football uniform is inspired by the horned frog’s scaly body army.


From the release: “TCU's all-black uniform features purple highlights and bold white numbers that reflect the new spike design pattern. The uniform also features red accents that harken back to the horned frog's defense mechanism - a shot of blood from the eyes that repels encroaching foes.


“This visual reminder of the "bloodlines" and brotherhood of the team creates a head to toe aesthetic from cleat to helmet. The color scheme is mirrored in the Nike Pro Combat Hypercool baselayer, socks, Nike Vapor Jet 2.0 Gloves, and Alpha Pro red chrome-plated cleats. The helmet pulls all of these elements together in TCU's traditional purple with a satin metallic metal finish.”
Other graphic details include a TCU logo on the back of the helmet (rather than on the side, as is tradition), and the word's "Fear the Frog" embroidered on the back neckline of the jersey.
