Football jerseys only available as #25 or vick/tyrod

I have been rocking my maroon Tyrod jersey for the last 8-9 seasons and since we havent won the natty yet I obviously need to change it up. I was looking for a 17 jersey (chancellor/fuller/jackson) but on the vt bookstore site I can only find #25 and then Vick/Tyrod. After some research I saw that it has to do with schools not being allowed to make money from player likeness while they are in school. Does anyone have an idea of where I could find a new jersey with a different number? It would be a bonus if the jersey didnt have the horrible shoulder stripes.

Yeah, when I got my #17 jersey in 2007 I had to get it "custom" as the selection at the bookstore is pretty limited.

stick it in, stick it in, stick it in!

I've always been tempted to get a 0 Championships jersey. I'm a sucker for self deprecating humor.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Nothing wrong with being a realist....

After a lot of the research I've done, I've accepted that VT will most likely never play for (again) or win a NCAA Football Title game. Is there a chance? Sure, but the numbers/stats don't lie.

We're a national name though, we have the greatest entrance in football, so I'm proud of and embracing that.

I don't think it's unrealistic to have a year where we can at least sneak our way into the playoffs. IF we had we Evans or Taylor in 2011, I'd say it's likely we have enough of an offense to beat Clemson in the ACCCG and make the NCG. In 2010, if we hold on to the win to Boise I doubt we get the hangover loss to JMU.

I dunno, I feel like the individual skill parity in CFB is lacking enough that you can have an absolute stud QB carry your team as long as everyone else isn't worthless. If it turns out everyone is else worthless, at least you can take a 2-10 team and make them 9-4. Looking at you Lamar.

This. Bryce Perkins is a great athlete and a eh QB and made UVA somewhat credible this year

Or even the value in just being lucky and getting calls or turnovers to roll your way. Look at Miami last year. They were probably, talent wise, a 9-win team that was a game away from making the playoffs.

If Michigan State can make the playoff during a run of 4 or so years of being pretty good a peaking at the right time so can VT.

Everything after that though is up to chance.

Sure there's a chance. All we need to do is win the ACC and finish the season with just one loss. Very possible.

My better half wants a t-shirt to gloat about her school's success compared to my Hokie's.

It would be a bonus if the jersey didnt have the horrible shoulder stripes.

That's why I really want a uniform redesign, because I'm holding out.

I almost jumped on the hokie stone jerseys last year until they turned out to be glorified t-shirts.

You could get a maroon JV practice pinny and look about as good as the old plain ones if you really wanted.

Well outside of ordering a custom jersey just for a number, the math adds up to sell the Beamer, MV7, and TT5 jersey numbers

25 * 3 (preprinted official replica numbered jerseys)= 75

75 = MV7 + TT5

If you put the last known NFL teams jersey numbers MV7 and TT5 played for, you get 25:

Coincidence? Too much time on my hands to think this out? I think not! ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED! LoL!

LMFAO. Jesus.

One turkey leg from me, my friend. But I wish I could give more.

As far as conspiracy theories goes, you'd think that should have gone plaid after a year's time...

This numerical illuminati conspiracy theory is about as legit as it gets... 🤣

Maybe the greatest gif I've ever seen

Wear that Steven Peoples/Sean Huelskamp/Tim Settle/Greg Stroman/Joey Slye/Cam Phillips/Anthony Shegog/Divine Deablo/Chuck Clark/Adonis Alexander/CJ Carroll/Sam Rogers/Woody Baron/Terrell Edmunds jersey with pride, I say.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

It's a Stroman jersey, I swear.

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Hmmmm now this is interesting...

Last year, you could only buy this as a #16 uniform. I was under the impression that uniform was a 1-time thing, but seeing this, I'm led to believe we might be seeing it again this year. Maybe even for the WVU game?

I doubt it, probably just for folks to buy since it was such a big hit.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

They'll only sell well on the second go around if they're actually replica jerseys. I couldn't believe how cheap the replicas they sold last year seemed.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

It's possible to get current player jerseys with names, but you have to buy them from kinda sketchy sites online. If you're able to look past that you can get yourself a pretty high-quality jersey of your favorite current Hokie with the name and everything for between 20-30 bucks and it'll take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to arrive.

Dang, I thought maybe we lucked out when they sold jersey #16 last year for "2016" that Jackson won the job and was #17 coincidentally in year 2017.

Are we thinking they won't sell a #17 jersey just to be safe? Were they not concerned about exploiting Coleman Fox last year?!

Let's Go...

I bought my #11 Jersey a couple years back (Kendall Fuller) off of Sports Authority (online). I found that certain numbers are available on different sites.

Technically, we've had legal adverse possession over their program for 5 years now, so I mean.... its kinda correct

Must be an ex-uva player trying to sell his jersey to get some money since no one will hire him. He just added the Tech since VT owned them all the years that he played : )

Well, you know nobody's out there searching for a UVa jersey. That's just a guy trying to use a phrase that somebody might actually type into the search bar.

I'd like to get a custom UVA jersey:

If anyone wants to sell their black pro-combat jersey from the Boise game, @ me.

¿por cuántos dólares?

Funny story though, I was walking around Valley View Mall around Christmas/New Years wearing that jersey since I was on my way to a CFA Bowl Watching party. 3 people confronted me:

#1: Employee at Sports Authority when I walked in:
"Are you out of your mind? People may literally jump you for that jersey.... I wouldn't be shocked if you have people offer to buy it off your body while you're in the mall, those things sold out in minutes"
--- I laughed it off because I thought he was full of shit.

*5 minutes later*

#2 - Random Guy: "Hey.... would you consider selling me your jersey?"

*10 minutes later*

#3 - Slightly More Aggressive Random Guy: "Holy shit you got one of those black jerseys? I'll give you $100 for it"

-- promptly left the mall because I wasn't living in Roanoke at the time and I feared my safety

I just did some googling out of curiosity and see if I could find any. Low and behold, I found a very intelligent community offering their honest reviews of the jersey..

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

I have that t-shirt and I still wear it all the time. It's held up very well. I wish I had enough money at the time to buy the jersey.

sexiest unis we've ever worn IMO

Most of those reviews were not wrong

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Agreed, now the white procombats were nice

White pro combats are my favorite tech jersey I think

My personal favorite were the Vick era maroon with orange numbers on the sleeve, but the Pro combat unis were absolutely sick, I wish they had made more color ways of it

Similar story, I wore mine to the 2015 UNC game, which of course was Beamer's last home game and the game we redid black jerseys. A guy behind me in section 31 offered me $150 for mine. I said no then 5 minutes later he offered me $200. Still said no. It's tucked away and I haven't worn it since. Part of me says to sell it, another part of me says to hold that thing forever.

It was a bday gift from an ex gf, so it's always my Birthday/Halloween jersey... any game on or around Halloween it gets worn.

If you buy one of the nice jerseys that have the numbers sewn on then you could sew your own numbers.

No I had to do all my own sewing as a kid.

Always love seeing these year old threads get dug up from their peaceful graves.

I'm just waiting on someone to bump that old pro combat thread
