The null search for the Higgs boson at the Tevatron implies strong constraints on heavy colored particles that increase the gluon-fusion induced production rate of the Higgs. We investigate the implications of the Tevatron exclusion limit on example extensions of the standard model that contain a new scalar state transforming as either an adjoint or a fundamental under the QCD gauge group. The bounds on the adjoint (fundamental) scalar mass exceed 200B GeV (100B GeV) for natural choices of scalar-sector parameters.
