Today in the Ticker: Uni Watch’s resident Hoo rounds up college sports’ UVa tributes, a new logo for the Patriots’ stadium, and a lot more.
- This section is entirely UVa tributes from games this weekend that we haven’t yet covered on the site, starting with the entire Pac-12 painting the 1-, 15-, and 41-yard lines orange. (Some of the following are from Adam Santic)
- LSU, Notre Dame, South Carolina, and Tennessee wore the V-Sabre helmet decal worn by ACC teams.
- Ohio State and Maryland wore Virginia-shaped decals.
- Florida, Georgia Southern, Marshall, and Vanderbilt wore an oval-shaped decal with the three players’ numbers.
- Auburn, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan State, Rutgers, Penn State, and Western Kentucky wore a circular decal.
- Pitt and USC had “UVa Strong” T-shirts. OL Bobby Haskins transferred to USC from Virginia last year.
- Wisconsin wore a decal specifically for WR Devin Chandler, who transferred to Virginia from Wisconsin.
- Teams that had “UVa Strong” visible somewhere around the field included Louisville and Wake Forest.
- Skyline (Idaho) HS apparently uses two different colored helmets on the field at the same time. (From Drew Abernathy)
- American’s women’s team, which played Virginia yesterday, wore black “End Gun Violence” T-shirts and orange ribbons, although they didn’t post any pictures.
- Stanford’s women’s team played South Carolina in a No. 1 vs. No. 2 national-TV matchup and wore patches supporting Brittney Griner, who is still being held in Russia. (Thanks, Phil)
- England: The women’s national team released its list of cap numbers on Friday, the 50th anniversary of their first game. They’ll be worn starting next year. On the topic, with no high-level men’s club games for the next month, I’d encourage Uni Watch soccer people to watch their club’s women’s team if it has one.
- England: The men’s national team’s NOB font at the World Cup appears to have a lowercase i.
- Germany: A game between Bayern Munich’s men’s reserves and Türkgücü München in the men’s fourth tier was abandoned because Bayern’s Kurdish fan club brought a banner and wouldn’t let Türkgücü, who apparently considered it a provocation, take it down. (From my brother Nate Rathjen)
- Japan: New shirt for the men’s J3 League’s Vanruare Hachinohe. (From Jeremy Brahm)
- Switzerland: New fourth shirt for FC Basel, worn by their women’s team in a cup match.
- Here’s an interesting article on how to pronounce “Qatar.”
