Football Display Case
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
Lots of those yesterday came from the garage sale of used jerseys
I have a Fandom Endurance III merit badge
Does UM do those custom jersey things? If they do, well there you go.
"I have three kids and no money. Why can't I have no kids and three money?"
There is a disclaimer that you cannot get a current or past players name and number combination.
They are smarter than you think.
You know, Dude, I myself dabbled in pacifism once. Not in 'Nam of course.
You can always go on eastbay.com and do the custom jersey thing their or did they quit doing that? I've wanted to custom make a Cone one for a long time but just haven't gotten around to it.
David Cone is my homeboy...
I'm pretty sure there was a post on the board a while back where someone said he ordered a jersey with a past player's name and number from M-Den even though the website said they wouldn't do it and it showed up with no problem. My guess is they put the notice there to discourage the practice but are probably to busy to bother reviewing every custom jersey order.
Yeah I think it was a Zolton jersey. It would be alot easier to sneak a punter jersey than a Woodson or Howard one.
You could always give it a shot. Seems like the most they'd do is cancel the order and tell you they can't do it.
Yeah, but what if they send someone to your home to abduct you, lock you in a basement somewhere and beat you mercilessly? Make sure you consider all the risks...
"All I've had today is, like, six gummy bears and some scotch"
Yeah that was me. I was able to get a #41 Mesko jersey from cbssports.com. It would be interesting to see if someone could sneak a higher profile name and number past them.
"fumbles the snap, takes off. . ."
I think the rule only applies to players who are still on the team.
I got a Woodson #2 from MDen with no problem.
I'm kind of a big deal in Bolivia.
On the CBS site they have this disclaimer:
"Though we do offer customization on some of our college jerseys, NCAA regulations prevent us from customizing a jersey with the name of a current or former player."
I didnt get mine through cbssports I got it from MDen http://www.mden.com/um-customized-jerseys
Not sure how Woodson 2 got past them but it did.
I just went on the cbs site and it wouldnt let me get a Woodson or Brady jersey saying that I couldnt get a past or present player. But went I put in "Cone" and "12" it let me add it to my cart.
I bought a #5 Justice Hayes jersey.....just before he was on the roster, no problem
once the player has graduated or left school companies can use the name and number on a jersey. They can't do it while a player is in college because that would be making money of a players image/likeness and is against NCAA rules.
I've ordered from eastbay in the past. They have never challenged anything. They have some great cash back deals sometimes if you watch sites like fat wallet or slickdeals.
Try and order now, if you want by season start though. They took 2 weeks on my last jersey.
My Martell Webb jersey is in the works.
All in for some manball.
I got myself a #21 Howard throwback off ebay about two years ago for around $45
On one of the videos from yesterday, there's a fan wearing a #5 jersey with HAYES on it. I want to know how he pulled that off. The only thing I can think of is that it's an incredible coincidence - the fan must have bought a Forcier jersey and put his own last name (Hayes) on it and then incredibly, we brought in a freshman with that name and number.
Either that, or he got Mercury's number wrong

If I can do this than I was thinking about getting a Tom Harmon or Bennie Oosterbaan replica home jersey.
...they look really weird. I don't know if any of you have seen them, but they actually look nothing like a real Michigan jersey. The numbers and lettering are all out of proportion. Looked like they had tackle-twill numbers and lettering, as well. Unless I'm mistaken, the numbers and letters were all screen printed back in Brady's day.
"[T]here were a lot of people predicting glorious heights for Rich; mostly the same people who are predicting doom and gloom [for Hoke]. Excuse me if I doubt their prognostication skills." -- M-Wolverine
Just messed around a bit on the CBSSports site. This is purely my speculation, but it seemed like if the player is still active in the NFL, they were not available (Woodson, Brady, Hart), but if they were out of the league, or were the space emperor of space, they were fine.
I now have a Biakabutuka jersey on order.
Dam now I want a Tyrone Wheatly Jersey
You may want to double-check the spelling of his name first.
What I would do is call around to different embroidery/customization places. Most places can do tackle twill numbers. The hard part is finding a place to do a nameplate. If you have a nameplate that a place can use as a reference that would help a lot. I might know someone that knows a place that can do the nameplates. I will let you know if I can get ahold of this person.
And obviously you can only do players that have graduated as that one group of people called the NCAA won't allow customization places to make nameplates of current college players.
I bought an authentic #2 jersey on ebay a couple of years ago. I would die if I could find somewhere to put "WOODSON" on the back.
What is your email address? I can email you information if I can get ahold of my friend.
I tried last year to place an order for a #56 Lamarr Woodley jersey but was denied. I tried to buy it from the MDen. Would have loved to have gotten that
