With the likelihood that UCLA will have an alternative black uniforms this year, I would really love it if we had a matted version with the above sketch as our helmet to go along with it. It’s not exactly groundbreaking style like Missouri’s all black helmet with a thundercat on the side of their domes but we have to take one little baby step at a time here in westwood.
Seriously, the above is about as tame as it’s gonna get for an all black uniform, but it will still get the old geezers who are not up to date with the current times screaming about our tradition while not fully comprehending the concept that “alternative” does not mean “replace”.
- “Where is the powder blue?”
- “Where is the gold?”
- “I can’t recognize it! How do I know who to root for?”
- ‘The black is too intimidating and the fear makes me shit all over my depends.”
And so on….
