OK. So, we've been hearing ideas and reading articles and fanposts for the last month talking about a possible "Gold Out" for the opening game against Michigan State. A united fan base, more supportive, visually intimidating, the list of Pros goes on and on.
We saw what the Neyland Stadium "Orange Out" can do to a team. The sight, the support from the fans, and the entire spectacle of the whole thing basically caused every single Golden Bears to crap his pants. Now imagine what it would to to MSU.
Here are some things that us Cal fans can do to actually get the ball rolling for this project:
-Go to Cal stores and ask them to put signs in their windows and mention the Gold Out to customers.
- Have some kind of large banner behind a TV camera at the Oak Grove saying "Gold Out Vs. Michigan State 8-30-08".
-Bombard the AD with emails encouraging them to get a sponsor to hand out free gold shirts.
-A facebook group called "Lets Gold Out Memorial Stadium" has almost 1,400 members (including Nyan Boateng, Tracy Slocum, a few other Golden Bears).
-Rivals.com published an article about the gold out, which can be found Here.
People, this idea is no longer just an idea. It has media coverage, blog coverage, facebook coverage, and soon, hopefully, coverage in stores and shops that sell Cal apparel and maybe even a little bit of TV coverage. Keep on telling your friends! Email the AD! Email Coach Tedford! Spread the word! Post about the Gold Out on other Cal blogs. As a Fanbase, this would be our shining moment of the Tedford era! Let's not let this opportunity slip away.
