I was a a big believer in Wilds being the better of the two until 2013 when Davis changed gears and set himself above any other RB at USC.

I agree that Lattimore shouldn't have a statue. If we're only going by impact and statistics, why not throw Syvelle Newton in the mix? Dude basically carried the team in 2006.

George Rogers is the only person in the history of Carolina football that deserves a statue right now. Spurrier will when he's done, regardless of SEC and national championship(s) won. Sustained greatness an success at a high level is worthy of being honored, particularly when it's never happened before. I wouldn't be on board with Morrison having a statue though. All he did was get us to #2 in the nation and beat Clemson a few times.

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.
So, what exactly is Carolina's official approach to honoring great players besides retiring numbers? Do we have a ring of honor or other various levels of achievement?

We should put of a statue of him holding his Heisman statue.

the ad policy enacted back in 2001 is to no longer retire numbers, but to retire jerseys instead. i cant see them amending it at any point either. retire the jersey keeping the number in circulation and then leave it up to the current coach if he allows a player to wear the number of a retired jersey.

I love Marcus so much I named my Boykin Spaniel Lattimore, but I don't think he deserves a statue.

As far as winning the NC to get a statue we have never been anywhere close to being in contention for the NC. Hell I may never see us win a NC in my lifetime but if I do it will be the biggest celebration ever.

Right now George is the only person that deserves a statue. Not only for winning the Heisman but everything he has done for the University. He does so much for USC that many are not aware of. If it were not for George I would have not stayed in school and graduated. He and one of the Dean's sat me down and pounding in my head that there was a life after my football career was cut short and I should continue with by business degree. So glad I listened.
