USF wanted uniforms to say 'THE TEAM' but the NCAA stopped them

USF wanted the nameplate on each uniform to read "THE TEAM," but they were shut down by the NCAA and angry fans on Twitter.

Forutnately, the NCAA has stepped in and shut down the move, according to the Tampa Bay Times, as rules state only the military academies are allowed to have anything but blank spots or player names above the numbers. USF fans are likely grateful.

Considering the USF logo is all over the jersey and the school's name is on each players chest, this seemed a little redundant anyway
