Is Randy Edsall a name-on-the-back-of-the-jersey guy?

July 22, 2011|By Matt Vensel

If you were wondering if Randy Edsall was a "name-on-the-back-of-the-jersey guy," you now have your answer. The Maryland football coach told The Washington Post on Friday that the team will unveil its new Under Armour jerseys in late August, and they will not have the last names of players on the back of them.

“I am not a name-on-the-back-of-the-jersey guy,” Edsall said. “To me, it’s all about the name on the front. It’s all about Maryland. To me, it’s about being a team and let’s just worry about being Maryland and taking care of business that way. It’s a team sport we are playing. It is not an individual sport.”

If you can make an insignificant change that will look old-fashioned to young recruits, you have to do it, right?

Anyway, I’m no Paul Lukas, but I’m excited to see what the Terps’ uniforms will look like. And Randy Edsall is right there with me.

“I’m very excited about that," Edsall told The Washington Post. “I’m very excited about our partnership with Under Armour and what they have been able to come up with for us. It’s going to be really nice to have the options we are going to have with the uniforms. With the combinations we have, I’ve got pictures because I’m not a fashion designer, so I know how exactly it looks when matched up and how it goes together. We can have a lot of options.”
