Was just wondering this since I was watching a HS game on TV where a kid was wearing #0. Is it allowed in College Football?
spoiler alert: i linked this
This is the rule in the handbook for NCAA football:
"ARTICLE 2. a. All players shall be numbered 1 through 99. Any number preceded by zero (“0’’) is illegal."
At WR, number -84, ....
Entirely possible, of course, given the rule, but we need to see what the NCAA says when Gardner lines up at WR wearing 2 log(1000000) on his jersey...
This doesn't say it has to be a whole number. Could be a fraction, or perhaps the symbol representing pi, phi, etc.
Yes, I want pi. I love pi!
I want cherry please. /s
The NCAA wouldn't allow this because SEC teams wouldn't understand what it is.
Seems like a rule that should probably be repealed with all the number sharing that goes on these days. Implementing #0 and #00 would serve to free up two more jersey numbers that wouldn't have to be doubled up anymore.
Positive integers only?
Zeros are losers.
Little known fact: Tacopants wears the number -0
I always though he wore number i
I believe it is 8i (because he's Jason Avant's imaginary friend).
So we can implement the Zack Novak legends jersey!
We can do that.... for basketball
When doing a lmgtfy, it helps to spel things write.
Its a good thing that lmgtfy doesn't use I'm feeling lucky because then there would be a recursive Google mgoblog loop
Hall of Fame center Jim Otto wore 00 for the Raiders. Maybe the two Ts on his nameplate were real small.
I like it when Orlando Woolridge wore "0" for the Pistons. I always thought it was for his career number of assists.
The NCAA adheres to the Roman Era way of thinking and doesn't consider 0 as a number. The Julian Calender started in year 1, not 0 to 1, that's why the year 2000 was really 1999 and 2001 was really the year 2000. But than again the whole Gregorian Calender created in the late 1500's refutes that because the Julian Calender didn't consider leap year as a factor.
The NCAA is stupid in other words, use the fucking 0 and 00 as #'s fergodsakes, they're needed, WTF is that dumb rule in there for? SMH.
