After the Freeh report gave the NCAA enough evidence to fine Penn State 60 million dollars, strip the team of scholarships and ban them from the post-season, it is shaping up to be a rough tenure for current coach Bill O’Brien. With current players being given the green light to transfer to any other school without having to sit out a year, one has to wonder how many players will stay.

Earlier this week, some 25 players announced they would stick together and stay with the team. Still, others will leave. Today, it looks like O’Brien wants to reward those who do stay by placing their names on the back of their jerseys.

According to the Reading Eagle, O’Brien is even considering changing the classic blue and white.

“O’Brien also told the parents that he has talked to Nike about changing Penn State’s plain blue and white uniforms, a staple of the program for decades under former coach Joe Paterno. He also said he’s looking to put names on the back of the jerseys. It might be easier said than done (for this season),” he said. “I’m not sure we can get it done this year.”

Changing the classic Penn State jerseys might upset a few alumni but in the end placing names on the back of the jersey is a minor alteration that could have a major impact on the team’s morale.

  • payton, great quaterback, SUPERBOWL? YEA!

  • Brick-hand Sanders from the Steelers? Is Manning a receivers coach now? Manning was on his game. Weren’t the Chargers without their starting corners? Still played great. Broncos defense stuffing the Chargers running game was impressive. That 30 yarder floated in there nice. Is it me or does Peyton’s passes look like a 30 yard bomb? That crap won’t work in the playoffs when Ravens defenders are used to practicing against Flacco who throws 70-yarders.
