Just a question for any "spring game" veterans, I read from the previous years' press release that they held a "Huskies Garage Sale" before the game selling old jerseys and memorabilia. Do they do that every year or was that a one time thing? I'm looking to get an old jersey or possibly a flag if they have them.

It's not done every year, but rather every two years or so. There has been absolutely no notice of one this year, so I assume there won't be one - at least at the Spring game.

what was ever done with those uniforms/jerseys with the hideous numerals which resembled chinese characters aka UCLA? I think they were worn maybe one or two seasons more than five years ago?

Italicized numbers - I think Texas Tech had similar numbers recently, giving them a very similar uniform scheme to what we had that year. I've seen some used as practice jerseys.

We wore the goofy lettered jerseys for 2 games and then got new ones for the 3rd home game in 1999. The reason we got rid of them is because the media complained that they could not read the letters clearly enough. They then went to the piles for practice jerseys.

My memory may be playing tricks on me, but I thought those ugly uniforms were worn for the wole season, either in 1999 or 2000. Getting rid of them was a blessing!

If you would recall, we came out the first game of the season in 99 for warm ups wearing black, and then came out of the lockerroom in red with goofy numbers for the game. The media complained about it so much that we ordered new uni's and had them by like the 3rd game. We didnt have them the whole season!
