College football, as a whole, doesn't decide on when to do anything. The institutions themselves decide whether or not to place names on the back of jerseys, and to this day, some teams have names and some do not.
it was university of Hawaii
Penn State is currently the only team without names on their jerseys
Because the NCAA does not allow college football players to have their name in a football game.
When the National Football League and the American Football League merged in 1970, all players began wearing their names on their uniform jerseys. Before the merger, only the AFL teams wore jerseys with names.
Most do. Only a few teams (USC, Notre Dame, Colorado, and Army, to name a few) lack names on their jerseys. Penn State was one of the schools known for not having names on their jerseys until 2012, when they finally decided to add them.
The New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, and San Francisco Giants do not display their players' names on their home uniforms. While the Red Sox and Giants have their players' names on their away jerseys, the Yankees do not display them on their road jerseys.

1970 , The NFL adopted it from the AFL ( American Football League) which started doing it in 1960.
No, because they are not privy to revenue sharing like professional athletes. They cannot make any money off their athletic performance; memorabilia sales fall under that umbrella.
Actually, unlike Baseball, where the pros accept players right out of highschool, the NFL is made-up of about 98% college football players in modern times. The chances of making it to the pros in football is very slim unless you play for a college team. There are some exceptions and most of those players have never become famous or household names. So, the answer you require would contain a list of thousands of players. Maybe 4,000+ names. Too many to list here.
Not really sure, but I know Temple doesn't have names on the back
The Red Sox home jerseys do not have the player names on them, because it is assumed that all of the fans at Fenway will already know all of the players anyway.

No, because they play as a team. It is a team effort.
The New York Yankees started putting numbers on the back of there player's jerseys in the 1920s so that fans can easily identify the players' name by referring to a scorecard that identified the players. Soon, all teams started putting numbers on their players' jerseys. Names didn't come on the players' jerseys until much later.
frabce are not a football team
A lot of the older teams that were around 100 years ago don't wear their names on their jerseys, a combination of tradition, and the sentiment that "a true fan will know his player's numbers!"
