I’m aware of this (mis)information, but, Regardless of what you *want* them to represent, the fact is they were unveiled as 1975 throwbacks to honor both Joe Roth *and* that successful Pac-8 championship season, meaning they should have a grey mask.

 

http://scout.com/college/california/Article/Cal-football-will-wear-1975-Joe-Roth-throwback-uniforms-against--107001480

 

“The uniforms—replicas of those worn by quarterback Joe Roth during the Bears’ Pac-8 co-championship season of 1975—will be worn on Sat., Sept. 23, in Cal’s third home game of the season, against USC. The uniforms will be worn every season against whichever Los Angeles team—USC or UCLA—plays at Memorial Stadium for the annual Joe Roth Memorial Game.”

  

Like I stated before, the jerseys are in fact for the 1975 season. The helmet, however, is intended to mimic Joe Roth's last game in Berkeley with the yellow mask and is why the 2007 & 2017 version have the yellow mask.

 

I see it as misinformation put forward by their marketing team and am trying to explain why the helmet mask is yellow and not gray ; As I said before they did not do a good job explaining the details and believe my explanation should hopefully clear that up.

Do they normally have nameplates? It looks like tgey super glued it on. Still a bad look.

I dunno, I saw it on the Helmet project forum and thought it was worth showing on here.

No offense, but that sounds awful. Their current green helmet is already perfect:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I am saying if you really want wings (which I don't like) DO NOT go chrome

Cal looks spectacular. Not a fan of the yellow mask as it's 1) not period correct, and 2) too much yellow up top. Correct grey mask - or even a navy mask - would look amazing.

 

 

These look fantastic. Way to go UA!

Thanks for the info....btw, a yellow facemask looked great! Gray would've messed up the entire look.

Yep, that’s new this season. They inexplicably decided to match the orange pants to the orange jerseys instead of just making the stripes on the orange jerseys match all of the other uniform elements. Incredibly stupid move by the Gators.

 

The Gators just keep chipping away at their uniform set worse, huh?

It makes me so ticked off as a current student here. I rant incessantly about this every time it comes up, but if they would just:

 

~make the orange jersey and pants have the same stripe as the helmet

~make the white helmet have the same stripe as the white jersey and pants, with  the blue F on both sides (maybe a blue facemask)

~change the font back to the regular block font

 

...then they would have one of the premier uniform sets in the country and look good no matter how they mixed and matched them (while staying true to their classic orange-blue-white against high-profile opponents, of course).

I know the purpose of this was to (rightfully) :censored: on those awful Albany uniforms but on the flip side I think Villanova might have the best uniforms in the FCS.

Colorado is going all-black this Saturday at UCLA:

The Bruins are calling for fans to whiteout the Rose Bowl, so they’ll presumably be in their white jerseys, and probably white pants as well.

UCLA's number 5 really bugs me, since it's a mirror of the 2. The serif at the top looks wrong. 

 

Not quite a mirror, but close.  The upper-left side of the 5 isn't angled like it is on upper-right side of the 2

The Ducks look to be breaking in their black helmets today during practice:

Given that, it seems fairly likely that they’ll wear the black helmets on Saturday for the first time this season. Here’s my guess at the full combo:

Duke jerseys for the Miami game 

Replace the white grey with white and you've got a better jersey.
