MDen is selling a Denard themed shirt

It reads "Big House" with 16 emblazoned on it. Seems questionable to me.

I would assume this has been cleared with the NCAA given that MDen is our official supplier.  Evidently, a player's number alone is not deemed enough to identify him (which is dumb logic, but allows schools to sell jerseys).  The problem is when you start selling shirts that say "Shoelace" and whatnot.  (Though the HE16MAN shirt would seem to fall into a gray area.)

Considering it's the "official" store and they are allowed to print jerseys with the #16, I don't see what's the issue.  The shirt reads, "Big House".  Not a reference to a player such as the words "Heisman" or "Shoelaces".  As much as I would want to nail their ass on it, I don't see it being the same problem (unfortunately, stupid S&D order)

I agree with the earlier poster...it's nice to see John Navarre getting honored for our last outright Big 10 title, that's the kinda support this program needs these days. Honor your heroes of yesteryear!

I'm going down to the local Tiki Hut and getting a bright maize t-shirt with big block blue letters on the front that simply reads:

DENARD ROBINSON

It will be blunt.  It will be tremendous.

Having both his first AND last name is tongue in cheek.  By the first name its obvious who you're talking about, so having the last name too makes it funny.
