UPDATE: #41 Zoltan Mesko Jersey

Submitted by MAgoBLUE on July 1st, 2011 at 11:38 AM

So on Monday when I ordered this jersey I posted about it on here and received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from people who were excited for me and interested in what I had to say.  It was touching.

A couple of people said they thought it wasn't possible to order a jersey with a current or former player's name and number.  I had also heard the same thing.  Even the web site that I ordered from includes a disclaimer saying those types of orders are not allowed by the NCAA:

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 placed the order anyway and thought that if it couldn't be done they would send me an e-mail or something.  Today I received the jersey.  I figured I'd give everyone the update that I did in fact receive the jersey and that these types of orders are possible.  Although, it occurs to me that they might be more vigilant with the name and number of someone like Howard or Woodson than they are with space emperor punters from space.

I do not have enough points to make a new thread.  I have written a script that will enable you to vote tens of thousands of times per day in the sportsnation tradition poll.  Could someone create a new thread for me so that I can share this code.  You'll need ubuntu.

I actually recall Michigan winning a "Who has the best unifrom in all of sports" poll by disqualification after it was determined that a couple people had voted for the winner (which was the denver broncos or something ridiculous like that) thousands of times.

So, probably best to just vote as intended.

I mean seriously, I think it's cool that you are getting a Mesko jersey, but for fuck's sake we do not need 1 thread about it, let alone 2.  If everyone posted a thread everytime they bought a damn jersey this board would be as worthless as RCMB.

Former players' names aren't allowed?  I swear I've seen some jerseys with BRADY and WOODSON on the nameplate at games in recent years.
