Notre Dame with names on the jerseys

I always have, and always will hate names on the back of jerseys.

No particular reason, i just never liked it.

One thing about them is that it appears as though the numbers on the back have been moved down a bit and made a bit smaller to accomodate the name.

In the same vein, I have never liked jerseys to lack names on the back. I know some people argue that NOB is clutter, unnecessary, not properly visible, etc., and that so many "classic" designs are nameless...to me it just seems unfinished and cheap.

Playing for the name on the front of the jersey (or the one that's implied)? Or merely playing in someone else's shirt?

I can see high schools going nameless, though some even spring for it (M'boro-Blackman HS did for the first season they played football, even)...but in my opinion, there isn't a good excuse for teams at the D-I college level or higher than AA ball in the pros to rock a nameless look...unless they just didn't have time to stitch a nameplate onto a new guy's jersey.

Haven't seen the ND jerseys yet on TV, but I believe I'll call them an improvement.

Still, we can all agree to disagree on the NOB front.

Heard them say during the broadcast that apparently this was a bowl game tradition at one point, that ND would bust out the NOB jerseys, and the players could keep them as permanent mementos/souvenirs, etc.

Not only did it look better, but it has tradition as well? Win. I give the effort an A, which is rare for me to say about anything ND (including uniforms).

Now if only I could talk them into sticking the ND logo on the helmets...

Nope, they are the same jerseys they've worn all year, just had a local shop add nameplates. The rest of the jersey was not touched at all.

Oh man, I love Notre Dame's uniform, including the plain gold shells. That's what got me to start liking them as a kid. ( Well, beside the Catholic part. )

I saw the highlights of the game on ESPN. I liked that one highlight where a ND receiver (or tight end, not sure) caught a pass, took a big hit, and gold flakes flew off his helmet. Pretty cool effect. :blink:

yeah, the announcers called it a "golden shower"... <_<

I don't know about the NOB tradition - the only deviation I can remember recently is ND wearing white jerseys with green numbers for a bowl in the '90s - maybe the Sugar Bowl. This was while they were still under their Champion deal, wearing the Holtz-era jerseys.
