is he a good receiver? yes absolutely. He's for sure the best offensive weapon we have on this team. But this to me feel's like the staff is just giving out these numbers to appeal to the fans. This is especially true with Countess getting the number 2 jersey. Are they good? yes absolutely and I'm happy that they suit up for the good guys. But have they earned the right to wear those jersey's? Funchess is debatable, but Countess really hasn't earned it.

I like that the #1 jersey is finally back out there. My only desire is that Hoke gives the number to some incoming freshman after Funchess is gone so we can finally be done with the mouth breathers making these "need to earn it" arguments. No one had to earn it before Braylon, and it's a shame that we've gone nearly a decade without anyone wearing #1 because somehow that became the standard. Hopefully this is the start of that coming to the end.
