    TCU new purple chrome helmets

    Apparently once again ISU is someone's Super Bowl as TCU is breaking out the new helmets for Saturday's game.

    TCU will wear purple chrome helmets this weekend | Dr. Saturday - Yahoo! Sports

    What do you think? Like or no like?

    Feel free to merge if this has already been discussed, but I found no thread.

    I think they are fine. I may change my mind when I see them with the uniforms on the field. But as a standalone helmet, it looks good.

    They look better than the helmets they wore for the KU game.

    Let's hope the uni change works as good for them as it did for Iowa

    I wouldn't read too much into the new helmets. TCU has become something of an Oregon Lite with a lot of uniform changes in the last couple of years. I think they are doing the new helmets this week because it is the first home game in the Big12 and the school is hosting a number of recruits. Should be a fun atmosphere for the game though. TCU fans are not a rowdy fan base like say Tech or WV but does have a nice tailgating scene. Should make for a good, safe experience for visiting fans and their families.

    TCU shining their helmets up so pretty will be excellent practice for them. They'll be shining ours on Saturday.

    Re: TCU new purple chrome helmets

    We need more uniform and helmet combos too - it's the "cool" thing to do and the athletes love it. How do you get people to come to Iowa State to play football? You go crazy with the uniforms. Welcome to 2012. Go Cyclones!

    Re: TCU new purple chrome helmets

    I can't understand why so many on this board get excited about uniforms - especially those for other teams.
