for Saturday's Utah game:
Nike is promoting skin-tight lightweight uniforms.
Article and more photos.
The helmet and pants are a gray mottle which is supposed to evoke horned toad skin.
The uniform design is pretty cool. However: missed color scheme opportunity. Too much gray/black.
A horned toad has a tan/khaki/gray mottle which camouflages it in arid environments. The uniform's gray/black doesn't evoke horned toad skin. The uniform needs some tan.
Also, golden/tan/khaki colored pants look fantastic with purple jerseys, as shown by TCU great Davey O'Brien, Heisman Trophy Winner in 1938:
Therefore, at least in the football pants, TCU needs more tan and less gray. I took an old sketch of a Komodo Dragons uniform and unleashed Microsoft Paint. Imagine yourself sitting in Amon Carter Stadium on a sunny afternoon, watching warm-ups between Utah and TCU. Which TCU color scheme looks better?
Added: attempt to paint sunlight and shadows onto Sammy Baugh's uniform. This is Baugh with the Redskins - but I painted him in TCU Purple. Sam doesn't mind.
An aside: look at the similar balance and weight distributions of Favre (#4) and of Baugh - right down to the angles of their foot positions. Both players are "slingers", and both have a lot of weight on their front foot. Over 60 years apart, they are in amazingly similar body positions.
