There is no single move that Edsall could make that would alienate the casual fan more than not having names on the backs of jerseys. Like, I can't just start following a bunch of numbers around the field. I wanna know who these people are, and on a college football team, if you're not a die-hard, thats almost impossible without names on jerseys. I understand when a baseball team does it (you only have to know who the batter and pitcher are, really), or even a bball team (there's only 5 of em), but for a football team its just an idiotic idea, that will turn off a lot of people, myself included. I don't even like playing college sports video games because of the lack of names.
For a program so intent on needing to bring in new fans, I just don't understand this. I would bet at least 50-100 people don't buy season tickets because they get turned off that they can't follow the action because of no names.
