Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall said he will continue to have his players wear jerseys without numbers and plain helmets when fall practice begins Aug. 5. Mendenhall decided to strip everything away from practice uniforms when he arrived as a way to make his players earn everything they got. "They are working so hard," Mendenhall said. "We're thrilled with how they've embraced that." It's had a benefit to coaches, too. They quickly learned how to identify players on tape from spring practice based on their body movements, allowing them to work more quickly on footwork, technique and stances.
