Why don't they announce who a penalty is on?

I don't think it's been changed back and they should be calling the number.

NCAA Football Rules Changes for 2004

Rule 11-2-1-d:

The referee, if he is equipped with a microphone, will announce the nubmer of the
player committing the foul. Intent: To provide key information on players committing fouls faster.

Rationale:

Officials already are required to report the position or number of the player who fouled to
the player’s coach (Rule 11-1-3-b). Depending on the circumstances of the game, it can take several

plays for this information to be delivered to the coach. Using the referee to deliver the information

provides all interested parties (coaches, media outlets, spectators, etc.) with the correct information

faster.
 
I don't think I've heard the number called in any of the college games I've watched this year.
