Worst TV Numbers Ever.

capt.59a9586bbe004c64a44f9e6c7aa29813.ball_st_w_kentucky_football_kyjr104.jpg

To some, having TV numbers of Western Kentucky is kind of a folly in itself. As in, “when is Western Kentucky ever on TV?” Touché.

But teams still have to have TV numbers. But if they look like that, I’d have to ask why they’re even bothering. And aren’t they supposed to be six inches? Or four inches? Or some standard size?

And no, for those wondering, Oregon didn’t wear its space duck leotard wondersuit (now with lazers and shit!) last night. That was the rumor, you know. In this situation, I couldn’t say, “Oregon, you’re dead to me,” because, well, you know … Bryan

    Are college football teams required to have TV numbers? I thought that was an NFL mandate.

  • tmac3217 | October 12, 2008 at 8:59 am |

    Nope. Minnesota’s new jerseys don’t have them.

    I wonder how long they’ll continue the all-white trend on the road? That’s probably my least favorite combination they have this year…

    Virginia Tech’s new unis (you know, the god awful ones they wear with the alternate sleeve colors… the orange ones they’ve been torturing us fans with this season… seriously, we have worn Maroon jerseys for 10 years straight, and November will be the first time we actually wear a maroon jersey this year… wtf) don’t have TV numbers. Now, our ‘throwback’ LSU ripoffs have wonderful tv numbers, so I guess you could say we have them half the time?

  • biff_tannen | October 12, 2008 at 10:16 am |

    The bad news is, those TV numbers are truly ineffective. The good news is, their helmet inventory doesn’t consist of pots and pans.

  • Randy Miller | October 12, 2008 at 11:08 am |

    It’s not the size that counts for the WKU television numbers. The whole point is that TV number should be easily visible for identification purposes.

    Those don’t qualify.

    I imagine as long as they keep winning in them, they’ll stick with them. Personlly, I thought last week’s all-maroon was the low point. Very high school. Very Arena league. Texas, for one, seems to do just fine in white over white.

    But you’re right, white-white takes some getting used to as a look for the Gophers. Haven’t been white-white since about 1957 or so.

  • LI Phil | October 12, 2008 at 12:06 pm |

    from wiki…so it must be true:

    [quote]A system of assignment of jersey numbers was initiated in American football’s NFL in 1952; it was updated and made more rigid in 1973. Numbers are always worn on the front and back of a player’s jersey, and so-called “TV numbers” are worn on the sleeve or shoulder. The Cincinnati Bengals were the last NFL team to wear jerseys without “TV numbers” on a regular basis in 1980, though since then several NFL teams have worn throwback uniforms that predated “TV numbers” without them, since as of 2008 “TV numbers” are not mandated under current NFL rules.[/quote]

    by the by…they’re also not required in college

    That;s because the Vikings have a guest Offensive Coordinator today:

    He hates their colors so much that he ordered that kid to run out of the endzone. His goal is that they will play so bad that the team will rethink their uni-scheme and “Ditch the Purple”.

    Maybe it is redundant, but NFL teams do it, too – the Patriots and Panthers, for example. But I’d guess that fans like having the helmet logos on the jerseys when they wear the replicas.

    Those Fleer photos must have been taken at a preseason or early season photo session or game, cuz Maynard started cutting off his sleeves supershort that year, so he ended up having no TVs (he’d have cut off the bottom half of the his “13”) while everyone else did have them.

    That photo of Titans chasing Billy Cannon is from ’60, of course. For Titans, no shoulder loops, darker (old) gold (the color they are mistakenly wearing now with the ’61 unis), two navy stripes on pants (no white), plain socks. ’60 was only year of that uni. Plus, was only season Oilers wore arabic numbers edged in red. For ’61 and several seasons thereafter were standard white block numbers with no red on home jerseys at all.

    I’m watching a replay of game 1 of the 1988 World Series on ESPN Classic and Dave Stewart is on second. As pitchers do, he’s wearing a jacket on the basepaths…but its got his NOB. I’ve never seen a pitcher’s basepath jacket with an NOB, but maybe I ain’t been lookin’

    For any soccer fans, I bought a 2008/2009 Benfica away jersey last week. Here’s a couple of pics.

    The Jets have a pretty good record in the Titans throwbacks, don’t they? 2-0 this year, and I think 2-0 last year also.

    [quote comment=”294545″][quote comment=”294496″]Does anyone else think it’s kind of redundant for the team to have a logo on the helmet and then on the shoulder a few inches away? Western Kentucky and Virginia come to mind.[/quote]

    Maybe it is redundant, but NFL teams do it, too – the Patriots and Panthers, for example. But I’d guess that fans like having the helmet logos on the jerseys when they wear the replicas.[/quote]

    Niners have the SF’s on the sleeves. PS Rams looked GREAT with the blue jerseys/white pants. Top five uni combo in the NFL.

    Actually, they looked MUCH better in the royal blue and yellow unis than the navy blue and gold ones. Still, they look horrible in the white pants.

  • Kevin M. | October 12, 2008 at 7:27 pm |

    I just noticed during the Cowboys Cardinals game that the umpire has what looks to be two mini video cameras on his hat. Has Paul covered this before or is this something new?

    I’m pretty sure other teams had warmup jackets in the ’80s with players’ names on them, but I’m by no means an expert.

    The Jets also have captain to captain hand offs when Brett Favre (offense) hands off to Leon Washington (special teams)

    The A’s and Mets both wore similar jackets back then and they all had NOB.

    Absolutely. Look kinda sparse without them. They have numbers on the back, so just move ’em to each side. Would serve the identification function and be true the franchise’s history (of that style helmet, especially).

    It would have been nice to have the Baltimore Colt records and colors stay here though. At least the old Colts didn’t go with the Mayflowers, they stayed here.

    If you look at page 7 of that nike team PDF, they talk about the new Nike Enforcer jersey, which won’t be debuted until the Army v. Navy game in December. Has anyone heard anything about what might be so special about these uniforms. I mean, Nike has put a lot of other stuff out thats pretty extreme, yet hasn’t been shrouded in secrecy. Also, from the sounds of it, both Army and Navy will be wearing the new uniforms. I’m a big Nike supporter in terms of their football stuff (I play I-AA football for a Nike sponsored team), but this one seems a little weird if you ask me.

    The TV numbers on WKU’s uniforms look fine to me. Then again, I purchased my television sometime after 1960.

    I could see how someone with a 13″ black-and-white television receiving a signal with a soon-to-be-outdated set of rabbit ears might have trouble making out the numbers on the shoulder/sleeve. However, in 2008, most televisions are able to clearly display practically a full spectrum of colors and contrasts. Rather clearly, too, I might add. (I have seen screenshots of the handwritten notes on shoes, caps, etc. on this very blog site)

    I suppose what I am wondering is: are TV numbers really a necessity anymore? Is anyone sitting at home really having trouble figuring out who just made the tackle or scored the TD?

  • KB | October 13, 2008 at 1:40 am |

    One additional note:

    Didn’t Washington State University wear those exact (WKU) jerseys a few seasons ago?
