Did they actually darken the red for this set? Because some photos under the lights look pretty scarlet to me. Perhaps it's just an illusion against the black.

I dunno.

 

I see that and I get OSU - Oregon State. I bleeping hate off-color uniforms. Wear your school colors, dammit.

Oh wait ....

 

It's one of the better alternates in college football I think. Once a year kind of uniform.

As a Oregon State fan I would love for us to adopt that uniform but with orange instead of red. Basically would be like our throwbacks from a couple years ago

Montana has a great look, but I REALLY miss their unique color scheme they had when they rose to prominence.

Cal's current uniforms are okay, but this is still their best look (no pun intended):

Homer pick but man I really think Cal looks good now.

Kinda wish they still had the metallic (or even glossy) helmets. The matte is just a little drab on a uniform with bold contrast. The rest of the uniform is pretty cool.

I think the jerseys and pants from that set were great (the bear claw motif worked well), but I recall the helmet stripe being really poorly-received by fans.

 

Also they had a tendency to wear some pretty awful jersey/pants combos

The worst moment for me was the big post-renovation reopening of our beautiful then-89 year-old stadium when they came out wearing this:

And of course, this set is forever linked to Cal's rapid freefall from relevance in the early 2010s.

Good pun though 😉
