Vandy’s New Uniforms Create Confusion In Opener [VIDEO]


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vanderbilt’s new uniforms already are creating confusion — and not just because the gray lettering on black jerseys is difficult to read.

The Commodores had their team slogan, “Anchor Down” written on the back of their jerseys. NCAA rules say a jersey may only contain a player’s name, the school name, the NCAA logo, sleeve stripes, an American flag, a state flag or a logo for a school, conference, mascot, postseason game, memorial or the military.

During Vanderbilt’s game with Temple on Thursday, officials said Vanderbilt would be charged one timeout each quarter the jerseys were worn because they were impermissible, but the officials later reversed themselves and said the Commodores wouldn’t be penalized. Vanderbilt athletic department spokesman Larry Leathers said the jerseys were approved by the Southeastern Conference.
