I insisted there was no such thing until a customer came in the following week to show off one that he was able to get his hands on somehow. Little do I know sometimes about things.
So yes, there is black cap with wider white piping, although technically I don't think it's piping. It's more a fabric overlay. And it has white eyelets and white on the tip of the bill. There is also a white cap with black eyelets, button and on the tip of the bill.
The caps were specifically designed for the CFO West Football Officials Association and will be worn by Big 12, Mountain West and Southland Conference Officials for 2011.
The main reason for writing the post is to let you know that it is NOT available for resale by Richardson although they are considering doing so for next year.
It's a very interesting cap style. It seems as if everything is changing from the bottom up in football officiating, from knickers to black pants, from 1" stripe to 2" stripe shirts and now this different style cap at least for a contingent of officials.
What do you think about the cap? What do you think about all the changes to uniform, especially at the NCAA level?
