Name on jerseys!!!!!!

Those of you wishing for a return of names on the backs of Washington’s jerseys appear to be in luck.
As we watch players file into the lunch room here on their way to a quick bite before hitting the field at Husky Stadium for Picture Day, there are most definitely names on the backs of the jerseys.
I just saw one that said “Hasty.”
We’ll find out more on this from Tyrone Willingham when he meets the media here in a few minutes.
Willingham had hinted that the names would be returning earlier this year saying that he thought many of the lessons of “team before self” that he has been preaching were beginning to sink in. Willingham had the names taken off the jerseys when he arrived in 2005 saying he thought it would help foster a better feeling of teamwork and decrease individuality.
