That's how I remember it.
Stupidest thing JG and JJ did while here...

Promise the world to a 17 year old kid then when he comes here you tell him to dress in street clothes and sit with the fans.

Please tell me what other college does this at home games...

Then tell me what other college goes to a bowl game and tells atout HALF the team they can't suit up in pads.

I actually thought it was a lot. Has the NCAA changed it's policy on how many can suit up on gameday? I mean if Notre Dame had let everyone suit up at home there would have never been a Rudy story.

Not that I know of...
There may be a number you can have on your "Active" Roster
When Hawaii played USC, there was way more USC players than Hawaii.

In the Sugar Bowl, Georgia suited up EVERY player in FULL pads.
Hawaii took up around 120 players. I think only 65 suited up in full pads

Yeah thats a bit much. But by what Mac said today I think the team as a whole should feel less like they wont get a shot behind the seemingly untouchable coaches favorite rockstar starters we've heard about over the years. If he doesn't change the policy I'm sure he'll still find a way to make those guys feel as if they're still crucial to the team.

Yup..
I BELIEVE Coach Mack will embrace his players (like Blondie) "One way or another"

I think the not dressing/sit in the stands rule came from the athletic department. They wanted to keep sideline clutter down. But it seemed to me that they wanted to let more booster type people on the field.

At the Sugar Bowl, it only seemed like the redshirt players weren't in pads. They were the guys standing on the benches behind the team for most of the game.

It was Glanville's idea and the policy continued after Glanville left. Boosters are not allowed in the team area, they are in the areas between the 20 yard line and the endzones. At the Sugar Bowl there were non-redshirt players that were not not dressed.

Hawaii took up around 120 players. I think only 65 suited up in full pads
i'm curious if that had anything to do with travel cost? taking full pads for all players would incur more cargo cost or something no? and doesn't hawaii have a self-imposed travel roster limit of 65 players or something (or what is 85) for road games? sugar bowl was the exception and all players were taken...

maybe i'm just weird but if i was a player who don't stand a chance to get on the field, putting on full pads and not playing is like getting fully dressed for the school dance and not a single girl asking you to dance...

but like i said earlier, if that boosts morale for the team, i'm all for it...

They all wore full pads in practice...
They all had the Sugar Bowl Jerseys.
