Al, no big deal here, but that's a different situation and is against the rules, even if during pregame warmups.

Having team members wearing identical numbers is not done very often during the regular season games. Not many teams have 99 players on the sideline for starters. However, in post season they bring along a lot more players, guys that may have never dressed for a regular season game or are JV players. If you notice, any player wearing duplicate numbers will be listed as being either as playing offense or defense. Never both on O or both on D.

I think it was the 92 rose bowl, where Washington had two number 5's. One played defense and the other offense. It was driving me nuts until I finally figured out it was two different players.
