You can't just go retiring numbers for everyone. You can retire their jersey and put it in a ring of honor or something but there is no way either one deserves to have their number retired. You guys are going crazy with all of this.

I would like to see us do what UNC basketball does with retiring jerseys and numbers.

Reserve retiring numbers for the highest honors, like heisman winner.

For those who aren't on that level, but still did a lot for the program, retire their jersey, and hang a replica of it somewhere inside the stadium. Do that for people like Lattimore, Shaw and Clowney. You honor their number without taking the number out of circulation.

I always liked the idea of using numbers as rewards for current player's accomplishments.

I really hope we eventually bring back numbers such as 2 and 38... let them go into circulation.

You are entitled to your opinion, but it is not factual. There are several players who have done more. Off the top of my head, I can think of Jeff Grantz, George Rogers, Eric Norwood, or Melvin Ingram as examples. As for coaches, clearly Spurrier or Joe Mo would be greater contributors than Marcus. But it is stupid to be debating such an issue because it doesn't create anything positive.

IMO, you are giving Marcus too much credit.

This debate could go on and on what about Bruce Ellington, he did as much if not more than Lattimore he played TWO sports on a very high level and went about everything the right way never in trouble.

I agree with Yazoo. We honor players with banners. There may be some area where we could add busts of our former coaches.

Maybe combine the two. A statue of Spurrier with visor and a big grin on his face patting a little boy version of Dabo on the head with the quote inscribed below, "I just love dat boy."

If you want to honor Latti, name the weight or training room for him. Fits.

We should put an epic painting of Latti rehabbing at the players' workout area entrance. That would inspire our guys. Especially when he's a coach here down the road.

At this time Lattimore doesn't have a degree, and wouldn't be eligible to be a coach.

A lot of nfl players go back and get a degree during the off season. Such as Cam Newton

I am guessing you just skipped over the whole Duce Staley coaching issue. How is someone supposed to coach young men at a academic institution and stress to them the importance of getting their education if they don't have a degree themselves? It would be hugely hypocritical.

theyre both deserving as of now per athletic department policy to have their jerseys (not number) retired. then you have to be in good academic standing with a reasonable ability to graduate and theres a 5 year waiting period after you complete your last season. you have to have one of the following.


University record holder
A consensus All-American
A consensus National Player of the Year (Naismith, Wooden, Heisman, Outland, Golden Spikes)
An Olympic medalist while a student at USC,
An All SEC 1st or 2nd team for 3 years

shaw, lattimore, jeffery, norwood, mckinley, ingram, and clowney all would be worthy in my estimation. while lattimore's injuries prevented him being a lock (read above, wasnt consensus all american as a freshman and didnt make all sec his last year), as long as he still holds a career record after the 2017 season then he would be a definite.

Until Ray Tanner's name replaces Carolina Stadium there is no reason to even be having this discussion. He is the only player/coach who has earned that right to have number retired, a statue at Carolina Stadium and at TD Ameritrade, and have a stadium named in honor of him. Tanner as far as I am concerned is that standard.
