You never quite understand it until you disagree with a posted topic.
|2 hours 38 min ago||Rest up DG.||
You've earned a bit.
|5 hours 38 min ago||Geez||
Forgot how stacked the '97 Heisman lineup was. Those were some good players there.
|1 day 5 hours ago||I like Tebow's:||
Although I can't stand him as a player, he seems to have his head on pretty straight.
|1 day 5 hours ago||And as he entered the banquet room, hobbling and wobbling||
Devin said, "Santa Hoke, all I want for Christmas is an O-line that will block for me."
He paused and added, "Having it all of next year would be nice too."

I'll watch all of them and love it, because FOOTBAW.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Bwahaha||
Texas is so fucked.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Aw, shucks.||
I wanted the SEC.
|5 days 2 hours ago||In other news||
Chad Henne is doing okay. No sign of Denard.
|5 days 4 hours ago||I've seen it posted a few times in threads throughout the year.||
I remember specifically in the "What are you expecting?" thread for the Indiana game (right after the Penn State game) there was at least one pessimist predicting a sub 100k showing. Didn't come close to happening, of course.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Gotcha.||
|5 days 4 hours ago||You not a Bridgewater fan or something?||
You not a Bridgewater fan or something?
|5 days 7 hours ago||Conga lines with the professor?||
That sounds AWESOME.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Had to laugh.||
Had to laugh.
|5 days 9 hours ago||I don't know, man.||
I'm not gonna say the SEC is overrated just because everyone around here wants them so badly to be and I'm not gonna say they're awesome just because ESPN wants them to be.
Hopefully we'll get a bunch of B1G-SEC bowl matchups and see how it all shakes out.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Yeah||
but my point is that you remember that play regardless of the number worn. You don't confuse Butterfield with, say, Derrick Alexander in that instance.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Oh, look at that.||
The sky's not falling after all.
And people thought the 100k streak was gonna end this year...
|5 days 13 hours ago||But on the other hand||
then you've got jerseys like #21, which Junior had been wearing for five years before it was given the Legends treatment, so it's just as much his as it was Desmond's. So the flip side is that maybe the jerseys should only be given to freshman so that the number is fully theirs.
I don't know, man. I've got myself talking in circles.
|5 days 13 hours ago||I think the jerseys shouldn't just be given out||
As in, once the seniors wearing legends jerseys graduate, the coaches shouldn't just sit down and say, "Okay, who wears the number now?" It should be more like the #1 jersey, given when deserved.
|5 days 13 hours ago||It's been said before.||
They'll make their own legacies regardless of what number jersey they're wearing. Look to the #1s.
|5 days 16 hours ago||You're overrating legacy.||
Denard wore 16, so did John Navarre.
Braylon wore 1, AC wore 1, David Terrell wore 1. We don't get them mixed up.
Desmond wore 21, as did Biakabutuka.
Repeat numbers happen, but the legacies remain distinct.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Forgive me, but...||
...why? It's a fucking jersey. It's not some mystical Thing for which you need special qualifications. Hell, Vincent Smith wore it for four years. Never heard him complain about "making his own legacy."
|6 days 7 hours ago||Textbook.||
|6 days 7 hours ago||Surely you mean *voracity*||
But that's one hell of a rumor. You'd think someone would have noticed his age before now if it were true.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Is it too much to ask||
Is it too much to ask for a well-played, entertaining game in which one of them is guaranteed to lose?
|1 week 3 hours ago||Eh.||
It wasn't Mattison and the defensive staff's best year at any level.
|1 week 9 hours ago||I agree with you.||
I agree with you.
|1 week 10 hours ago||I have a strange sense of deja vu.||
As though this same argument was put forth this time last year.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Heard somewhere he was a senior.||
|1 week 12 hours ago||Coming from a uniformz-lover:||
It's not about recruiting and never has been. That's just an easy answer. They do it because it's a Cool Thing. Some people really like Cool Things. Dave Brandon, the players, and select members of the fanbase spring to mind. Some people don't like Cool Things, and other select members of the fanbase spring to mind. It's as simple as that.
