The Gold Uniforms Looked Good
After the Big Sky informed Cal Poly that the all-white uniforms they wore at Weber State (with gold trim) wouldn’t be allowed anymore, the Mustangs rolled-out a gold uniform for the first time at home.
I’m not fashion expert, but I thought they looked sharp. On the podcast earlier in the week, I talked to JD Scroggin about whether he thought it would be possible at home. We both thought that it probably looked too close to a visiting team’s white uniform to make it work, but they did it. In the future, perhaps they should request that the visitors wear a darker color to make the difference stand-out more.
Unlike the white uniforms, the all-golds had sharp and easy-to-read green numbers.
The two games that Cal Poly has won in the golds this year have been among their closest of the season. While they won that game 35-17, they were actually losing 17-14 in the fourth quarter before reeling off 21 straight points to make the final margin much larger than the game actually was.
On Saturday, with Cal Poly donning the golds again, Portland State used some Cal Poly miscues to go ahead 25-20 in the third quarter. Much like the North Dakota game, the Mustangs rallied late to score the final 17 points, winning the game by 12, 37-25.
Cal Poly has played a lot more close games than their dominant 7-0 record indicates. Sometimes the difference between a good season and a great season is the ability to consistently do the things they need to do in close games. And closing close games has not been an issue for Cal Poly.
