Notre Dame Unveils Shamrock Series Uniforms, Which Pay Homage To School Features

NO BULL: In Tampa, Joey Knight noted the Univ. of South Florida originally planned to replace player names on jerseys with the phrase "The Team," but yesterday "ditched the idea." The jerseys will "simply remain blank," after the school found out that "The Team" moniker was "a violation of NCAA Rule 1-4-5 governing the design of football jerseys." Rule 1-4-5 "indicates that other than the player's number, the jersey may only contain the player's name, school name, NCAA logo, sleeve stripes, the American and/or state flag and a logo for the school, conference, mascot, postseason game, memorial or the military" (TAMPABAY.com, 8/19).
FUEL GIMME FIRE: In Phoenix, Andrew Joseph noted Arizona State "hit it out of the park" with its new "Desert Fuel" uniforms. ASU will "wear a white and copper helmet with an all-anthracite uniform against an opponent to be determined -- possibly against Notre Dame on Nov. 8." ASU unveiled the look Monday through a video, "showing the team get its first glimpse of the new uniforms" (AZCENTRAL.com, 8/18).
