OnWis97 Posted January 4, 2011 Share Posted January 4, 2011 Again, if black is a school color (not the primary color, but still a school color), what is wrong with wearing a black jersey?Black is not a school color. TCU football has worn black on a off for a long time, but it is not an official school color.That was my question. People say that the "team" has black as a color, but if it's not a "school" color, then it's still BFBS, even if the BFBS decision was established 20 years ago.Northwestern's had black football jerseys for a long time, but as far as I know, black is not a school color. I even wish Wisconsin would drop the black trim that drop-shadows the motion-W and trims the basketball uniforms. Wisconsin is Cardinal and white and I wish they'd stay that way on their uniforms...Similarly, Northwestern (I think) is purple and white and I wish their uniforms would stay that way.So if it is true that black is not a TCU school color, then the criticism is valid, in my opinion. School colors should not change (and I know they do in sports...e.g., Western Michigan) and the uniforms of their team should reflect that.As for the helmet, I don't like wordmark/logo helmets, so TCU's is way down the list for me. But given that this is their helmet, I love the way they added the rose to it. Good choice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
