Maybe Bancroft Clothing will stock Cal gear again? Nothing can be more depressing for an old Cal fan than walking into Bancroft Clothing these days. Once my Cal merchandise Mecca, there's is hardly a trace of Cal on the shelves now.
egads, imagine if they just broke back out the cartoonish Berenstain Bears looking jerseys/bear logo from the Dykes era?
those big game edition UA unis were hot, and I was hoping we'd get something like that as more regular alternates.
hopefully we get something simple and sleek. and say adios to the "sather stripes"
