TCU is a LOT more conservative than that,

When the new Horned Frog logo leaked from NIKE, ALUM went nuts and it was quashed. The AD and Marketing department are going to pick something that be cool but within reason. I just can't see outrageous and gaudy happening. Look for something understated but unique to TCU.

Just my .02c

I already submitted one last night when I saw this. I like conservative, "old-school" designs, but I submitted something that I think is pretty unique and modern because I feel like that's what they'll be going for. Their basketball program isn't exactly leaking with tradition so I thought I'd try to freshen it up. But no worries, no giant logos or gradients lol

It's technically called "we're not going to pay you for your work. Instead, you get to watch a bunch of guys applying decals and rolling paint onto hardwood. You also get to watch TCU beat up on a bunch of SWAC and Southland fodder, because we sure as heck aren't going to put you courtside when we play a game you actually want to watch."

Does Ed O'Bannon know about this?

EA doesn't plan on taking the winner's likeness and putting it in a video game, so I'd imagine not.

Last time I remember a school having a "design our new floor" contest, we ended up with this travesty:

So I'm not holding out much hope.

As mentioned, a TCU court wouldn't be over the top like that.

The last Pro Combat Uniform made many alumni want to vomit, so I'd expect what you would see on the current football uniforms: Modern, but subtle.

Anyone happen to have a photo of the frog scale pattern? I can't find it anywhere, not even the TCU Brand Standards. Odd they didn't compile a file of all the logos, wordmarks, etc along with the court template

Here is the version in white/grey: https://www.flickr.com/photos/88019126@N00/16843344101/

I don't have a purple version, but I think that'd look best for the court border.

I threw my hat into the ring last night. I wanted to do something different, unique, for TCU. I ended up removing the website. The white area of the frog and top of the key are a lighter wood stain.

This court would be a lot better if it was presented with Nike-speak and telling us what each part of the court represents. :)

Especially since their college basketball series (and all college basketball games, for that matter) is kill
