    UCLA Uniforms

    Anybody have an idea as to why the 'C' on the UCLA men's basketball uniforms are gold while the 'U', 'L', and 'A' are blue? I'm sure there's a good reason for it, but I can't come up with it.

    Thoughts?

    My best guess is that California is the Golden State. I can't say that I've ever noticed it before, but I'll be sure to look next time they are on TV.

    "First to 100" Continues Recognition at Upcoming Men's Basketball Games
    As a part of UCLA's season long celebration honoring "First to 100," a student-athlete and/or coach from each of the 100 NCAA Championship teams will be honored at halftime of all home football and men's basketball games during the 2007-08 campaign.


    Throughout the course of this celebration, there will be a few subtle changes to recognize our celebration and elicit questions. A few of those changes include the official "First to 100" logo being placed on the back of our football helmets, as well as the reverse color "C" in the north end zone at the Rose Bowl. The "C" is reversed because "C" is the Roman number for 100. As other sports get underway, you will notice that the "C" on our jerseys will also be reversed when the team uses block lettering on its uniform. Men's Basketball will likely be the most prominent example of that.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    You'll just have to accept the positive rep from me instead.

    I feel so Nov 2007 giving out rep. Thought the modern method was Karma and Thanks. Long live the rep.

    Wow, I've only been gone for 36 hours... Not only is Karma gone, but "Thanks" has come and gone, too? Geez. They say the internet is fast-paced, but that seems excessive.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    They really do look kind of ridiculous. So long as it's only this year, I guess I can stand it...
