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...
