I liked having my name on my jersey. I'd imagine other players did as well.

Teevens put the names on the jerseys in 1987. Lyons continued the practice. They took them off in the late 1990s. Whether that was a league edict or a cost-cutting measure on Dartmouth's part, I have no idea.

Don't remember anybody complaining that we didn't have our names on our jerseys.

People did complain about the warrior head.

True. Most people did complain because the warrior head was removed from the jersey.

"Most people complained, and therefore, the warrior head was removed."

or

"Most people complained about the removal of the warrior head."

In any event, names on college football jerseys didn't take off until the 1980s. I'm sure some older guys disapproved at the time, just like I disapprove of the black "home" jerseys with minimal green today.

The black uniforms are a sign that Dartmouth is mourning the loss of itself.

Look at those tears:

Even with last season, I'm pretty sure we have a pretty good record overall with the black unis. So there's that.

AI introduced in 1980s.

DC adds names to jerseys in late 80's.

Correlation between new generation of AI admits and need to spell out names for everyone?

We report. You decide.

Wouldn't the pre-AI guys be the ones who needed the names spelled out? Dartmouth's (and Yale's) fortunes nosedived because we complied with the AI rules immediately. Others (Penn) took longer to do so.

My recollection is that Cornell had names on the backs of their football jerseys as well in that era. When they started and stopped, I cannot recall.

Can't you sue the person who is forcing you to read all my posts? Or is too awkward to be both plaintiff and defendant in the same proceeding?

Fine, next time I won't correct you and let everyone else laugh at you when you repeat the error.
