UCF Football Is Replacing Jersey Numbers With QR Codes For Their Spring Game… And I’m Confused AF

I am big time confused right now.

UCF, the self-proclaimed 2017 College Football Playoff National Champs, may have come up with the strangest jerseys I’ve ever seen for their spring game tomorrow…

No, it’s not some God-awful, ugly-ass design that makes you embarrassed for the program…

Instead, they’re replacing the numbers on the back of their jerseys with QR codes.

They unveiled the jerseys on their football social media accounts, displaying running back Isaiah Bowser showing off his new jersey with the QR code.

The video explains that each player’s QR code will give people access to their social media accounts and merchandise stores, now that players are able to make money off their name, image, and likeness (NIL).

Help the kids get some NIL money, I’m all for it.

However, I have one question…

How in the damn hell are you able to scan a jersey’s QR code with your cell phone, when you’re sitting in the stands pretty far away, and the players are running and moving at full speed?

Wouldn’t this just be more difficult for players and coaches to identify players? Are you supposed to do it from you TV?

I’m not sure how I feel about this one, but y’all do y’all UCF, I guess.
