Alternative Uniform Mockups

White and Blue Away:

Yellow on Blue Home:

Yellow on Yellow Home:

The away ones are Adrian Arrington from the Penn State game last year, and the home mockups are Marshawn Lynch with Mike Hart’s head (note the Cal logo on the V-neck).

My Opinion:

White on Blue looks alright, though I’m not sure it’s an improvement over the yellow pants. Personally, I think all away jerseys are getting a little played out (Texas does it best), and am not interested in seeing them (I know we had them in the 70s or 80s).
As far as the home Jerseys, I think the all yellow looks like crap. The yellow-on-blue, on the other hand, I wouldn’t mind seeing a maximum of once a year for a special occasion. The majority of fans who are opposed think the “tradition” of the home jerseys shouldn’t be tampered with. However, like Brian feels toward night games, I don’t think a special occasion-type uniform would bring a certain energy to the team (think: maize out), and couldn’t hurt in marketing the program a bit (it would be a big enough deal to get play on random ESPN talk show #s 1-6).

Let me know what you think in the comments.

    Maize on maize just looks stupid, and maize on blue looks like friggin’ Cal.

    White on blue for away is not an improvement over white on maize, but I recognize that some people could disagree.

    white on white sucks so that is out.

    white on blue – i think doesnt look as good as white on maize so toss that out.

    blue on maize looks just like cal (maybe cuz that is a cal jersey in the pic) so just dump that too.

    and maize on maize is awful.

    i think the best thing to do is keep it the same.

    those are ridiculously terrible, but then again, im not a fan of the current road jersey’s either.

    I agree with the majority in that I don’t like either of these away combinations or the maize on maize, but I do think a Maize on Blue would be a dope look for a home game, a night game if they ever decided to have one at the Big House. Nike does make alternate Maize jerseys, slightly different than the Cal ones you’ve got pictured. I have a #1 of that type and I like it a lot. You can froogle Michigan alternate jersey and they’ll pop right up.

    i don’t know whay anyone would want to go away from the blue home jersey–it’s one of the coolest in football. white on blue away may be ok, but i’d have to see a better mock-up. the poor photoshop job just doesn’t cut it. maize on maize is awful and the maize on blue is second rate.
