    Names on Jerseys

    I have heard through the grapevine that names will be on the back of the Cyclones' Football Jerseys this year. Can anyone verify this? I am very happy if this is true!!

    Re: Names on Jerseys

    I school of thought was the name on the front was more important than the name on the back. But I always thought that it would be a better incentive to avoid being easily identifiable when you **** up.

    Re: Names on Jerseys

    I'll be glad if the names are back on. It makes sense and it's also a change from the Chizik nightmare.

    Sounding like it! And i'm glad and i'm guessing the players will be happy. Players deserve to have their names on tv so their family and friends can be proud.

    It will also make it a lot easier to know who is doing what, from a fans stand point.

    So true. After 4 years in the band I'm finally going to be able to just watch a game and this is gonna make things way easier when my significant other starts asking who players are.

    Re: Names on Jerseys

    I always laugh at these threads. As if the great big numbers on the jersey do not do enough to identify a player...hilarious.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Good. I like this because they will not be "Chizik" uni's anymore when this happens. We will all remember when the Clones turned it around with CPR.....and he had the names on the back of the jersey.

    So yes, I am glad that some little change has happend in the unis.

    My other vote is to have one single yellow stripe down the middle of the helmet too. Keep it all the same.....but just add that one little stripe....then USC doesn't look like us.

    I agree. I'm not sure why this is such a big deal to some. If the players like it, cool.
