Default With Names or Numbers Only?

How do you feel about the players last name being printed on the back of the jersey?

I think this year would be a great time to take the names off the jerseys. Remind the team that this is a team sport and we are all in this together whether your last name is Clowney or Ard.

The Athletic Dept. could make a point that football is a team sport and the players should value the importance of teamwork and unity. I believe that by putting the last names on the jerseys you are placing unnecessary attention on individuals rather than the team as a whole.

Putting names on the back of jerseys kind of defeats the purpose of a number. Also, by having only numbers on the backs of the jerseys, fans may be more likely to pay for programs to know who was on the field or off the field...making the University more money on game day.

What's in a name?

Seriously though - on, off, I don't care. Use it as motivation no names until they play like a team or something.

I really see no reason whatsoever to not have their names. It does nothing to help or detract from anything.

Clowney is and will continue to be somewhat of a distraction. He's famous. He is the most high profile player in the country right now because no one knows if Johnny football will ever play another college game or not. This is great for us, but could also bite us on the ass and cost us a game or two. I just think it would make even more of a statement if SOS implemented this rule at some point in the season if he sees the distraction becoming a negative influence.

If you want to see a real charlie-foxtrot, make a thread asking if grown men should wear jerseys with or without the name on the back, and what color helmet would go best with it, and ponder if jorts work best with that combination.

Put the names on the jersey. They players work their tails off. They and their families have earned it.

I remember Holtz did this while he was here. I could go either way with it.

Definitely put the names on the jerseys. Why? I'll answer that with another question: Who is #12 for South Carolina? There are two players who currently wear number #12, one is listed as 5'11" and 217 lbs., and the other is listed as 5'11" and 218 lbs., so even if you saw them standing next to each other in full gear, you might not be able to tell them apart without looking at the roster.

Is that more important than a coaching staff trying to bring the team together during a difficult time because of a lack of focus or individuals slacking off waiting on their first pay day? However, in the case you mentioned, initials would be appropriate.

Really, the names are more for TV.
REally a non-issue for me.

Are you serious?

If we are at a point that not putting names on the jerseys can help us, we are probably beyond help.

I don't think it's an issue now, but the fact that SOS did say something about the situation and called out a couple players publicly, tells me it could become an issue soon. Hope it won't be, but I'll honestly be surprised if it doesn't.
