This year's sale will include approximately 4,000 items including football, volleyball, and baseball uniforms, practice jerseys, a few sets of shoulder pads, football sweats, football shoes, basketball shoes - especially plus sizes - and pretty much anything they have with a Cal logo on it.
No helmets will be availabe for sale.
Past sales have been extremely popular, and last year all items were sold in less than three hours.
Unlike the jerseys sold at games or at the Cal student store which have screened on numbers, the game jerseys available for sale will have tackle twill numbers. Because of NCAA regulations, no jerseys with the names of current players will be available for sale, although some jerseys with names of past players may be availabe according to equipment manager Ed Garland.
The football jerseys are always the fastest selling items and are expected to sell in the $60 range. Asked whether he's ever thought about raising the prices to bring in more revenue, for Garland, it wasn't an issue.
"The typical Cal fans who come out to the games and pay for tickets and support the team are deserving of getting Cal gear without paying an arm and a leg," said Garland.
The sale will be held in the food court area at the south end of the stadium just inside the iron gates. While last year's sale was hampered by rain, this Saturday's weather is expected to be warm with temperatures expected to be in the high 70s.
Notes...Richard Fisher saw work with Offensive Grouping A at left guard., while Boskovich worked with Offensive Grouping B...the wide receivers were used throughout all three units...Charles Johnson and Shea McIntyre saw work with Defensive Grouping A in place of Tony Felder and Zack Follett...Sean Cattouse saw some work with Defensive Grouping A
The usual caveats remain: since Wednesday's groupings were captured towards the tail-end of practice, it's possible that players appeared earlier and were held out later; because of the large number of substitutions within each unit, this list is not exhaustive, and finally these were the units that players were broken up into during 11-on-11s and are not necessarily indicative of the current depth chart. Also, units are fluid from practice to practice, so the receivers for Unit B in one practice could vary a lotfrom the Unit B receivers in the following practice...The very final segment of 11-on-11s focused on situations during the goal line. With the different formation that were being used, the traditional A, B, and C groupings didn't apply as pesonnel were shifted in and out...
