I just read an article that pointed out that St. John's (MN) -- this year's NCAA D3 nat'l champs -- uses several jersey numbers for more than one player. The reason is that the head coach, John Gagliardi, never cuts anyone from the squad. Here's the roster list:

Isn't there some rule against this in football?

In the NCAA, as long as they don't do it to deceive, its OK.

I don't think they can have #32, who may be killing the defense, switch to #38 so the defense doesn't know who's in the game. Also, you can't have three #32's who all get major playing time at the same position. You can put #88 on a kid who's normally #78 if you want him to be eligible.

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.
