David Shaw Tweets The Return Of The Stanford Cardinal Black Jersey

There might be some Bay Area college football uniform changes. First, let's start with the Orange Bowl champion Stanford Cardinal, who did a lot of new things during the successful four year Jim Harbaugh era. First, they won a lot of football games. Second, they actually got fans to attend their games and occasionally fill up 70% of the stadium (huge steps in the right direction).  Now, Coach David Shaw tweets the following:

Met with our Nike rep yesterday-some great gear is on the way! Maybe even some new black jerseys...

This wouldn't be the first time the Cardinal have unveiled this look. Last year they played it in one Saturday night nationally televised game on ESPN with the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Based on the fact Stanford beat Wake Forest 68-24, it's not hard to see why they wouldn't be enthused to wear them again. Also, Stanford's basketball team has used black uniforms in the past, all despite the fact that their traditional colors are red and white.

Then again, there's not much in college football that's really all that traditional anymore.
