SportsMerchNews.com has been shown Nike merchandise that was planned for TCU in 2012. This confirms our earlier report that the logo shown was, in fact, the logo Nike and TCU were planning on debuting in 2012 before being scrapped at the last minute by TCU.
Word out of Fort Worth is that the logo was scrapped due to public backlash when the logo was leaked on various websites. TCU will stick with their current logo for now, but apparently they are still in talks with Nike about designing a new “frog” logo.
It has not been confirmed whether or not these shirts will be available for purchase this year, but our experience with Nike tells us Nike will simply cancel any orders for these shirts.
We will reveal more merchandise samples as we receive them. Check back often for updates.
