    Roster Changes and Jersey Numbers`

    Can someone explain to me why we continue to see jersey number changes for players?

    I assume this is because they'll be on the field with someone who has their number, but we have what, 90 numbers to pick from, and 65 players suited for each game, why would we have two #4 on the field at the same time?

    Players may have allegiances to certain numbers or they may have a special meaning to them. Also, I don’t think you can have 2 players with same number on the field at same time, so like one must be an offensive player and the other defensive.

    Re: Roster Changes and Jersey Numbers`

    The players usually get to pick the number they want. And usually as the season goes on and the coaches tweek the special teams squads some of those numbers might cause conflicts in which case you get a number change. Not a big deal.

    And there isn't 65 players suited for a home game more like 120. Heck 70 players are on the travel squad that goes to the hotel the night before the game.

    Re: Roster Changes and Jersey Numbers`

    I had to look it up because at the Tulsa home game I saw a ton of #12 jersey's and I see that is Sam richardson's # so I take that's who most fans want to be the next qb's. Are we Iowa where the favorite qb is the backup? Where is the jersey love by fans for Jantz?

    I'm still not sure why the keep putting Steele Jantz in at corner. Shouldn't he be making adjustments with Messingham on the sidelines when the defense is on the field?

    Those jerseys were handed out with student tickets. Think "what year is it".

    He also seems to play much smaller when he's out there on D.
