Virgil

I asked on here last night during the game why Virgil did not have his name on the back of his jersey and no one answered. Any response?

I did not notice that. I saw that we had a #1 without a number but I am pretty sure Virgil wore #11 and had his name on it. Did #11 really not have a name on the back?

Don't know about the number, but the announcer (maybe mistakenly) referred to him as Virgil and the one he referenced had no name on the back of his jersey. Just blank.

Virgil’s original jersey became unusable. He took the 11 jersey of Jeremy Level and they took the name off. Level switched to #1.

We can’t afford to put a name on the back?

If it happened in the middle of the game, the cost really wouldn’t have anything to do with it...

The 1 was an extra jersey for situations like this. Can't put a name on it if you don't know who is going to use it.

Level is normally 11 on defense. However, since Virgil's jersey because unusable, he had to take Levels jersey and Level wore the "no name" 1. Since Virgil's last name isn't Level, they took Level's name off when the switch happened.

We ran out of “V” letters, and “IRGIL” would’ve looked stupid.

Huh? Number #1 isn’t assigned to anyone.

With this question, you have now lost the privilege to rag on Cline for asking silly questions. 😁

Please note, my sarcasm font is not working.

I figured it had to be something like that or we had a walk-on who earned a spot on travel team late. Thank you for the details!

Are you telling me we can't afford to hire a full time seamstress with sewing machine and all the needed fabric in various colors to take care of this in-game? Maybe we should give up on this pipe dream of FBS football. ;)

Wait a minute. If it was all of a sudden, the seamstress may have been available. Surely, Virgil will have his name on this week.
