Default Just thinking of a way to honor 21.

As we all know Mr. Lattimore is a one-in-a-billion type guys, not even talking about football. We need a way to keep his spirit here at Carolina, a visual icon. I just made this really quick before work. I would love to here any other ideas or maybe phrases we can stick on the stadium or maybe a statue? Well do some creative thinking ladies and gents and lets see what you can come up with!



Or we could do like a 6 ft tall statue of the number "21" and stick in on the top of the middle pillar on one of the ramps. I know horrible render but its just to give you an idea.

His name is on the stadium ramps for the most rushing touchdowns in gamecock history right?

Those are some really good seats..

continue to work hard, stay motivated, encourage one another. seems like a better way to honor marcus than a sign. just my opinion.

looks like somebody was watching a weird al video on a tv from curtis mathis...

Played 3 seasons and only 1 full season. Don't think we need to go out of our way to honor him. If we do this for Marcus then what do we do for Clowney who in all likelihood will set more records and win more awards...

I said forget the football side. It's about him as a person, the character. What's more important, football ability or just being a damn good man? Kids in 20 years will only have heard what we tell them, they won't know the man. That's why I think it's important to always have something to remind us. Visual references are the strongest way to keep the moment of Marcus around Columbia long after we are all gone. Just me though

Not just for Latti, but I would like if we did a something "of honor". The Cowboys and others have the Ring Of Honor with players and coaches along the lip of the upper deck. I don't know if we do that, but maybe once we redo the area surrounding the stadium do a Walk of Honor or maybe some kind of memorial area like they have in Left at Yankee Stadium.

A 21 gun salute would do it for me, preferably with some AC/DC (For those about to rock) playing in the background.

Statue of him outside the stadium. That's the best bet. Get one of him and Steve out there.

Didn't mean that to come off as harsh or anything. I love Latti. I've met him, spoke to him, and was a student during his years here. I just think our fans take it to the extreme sometimes. I'm not belittleling what he did here at all.

We've had this discussion before on here. I feel if he was able to avoid the injuries and obtain some kind of tangible hardware for his accomplishments then we would have more reason to do something to honor him.

In the spirit of accuracy, he didn't even finish his freshman season, was knocked out of the bowl game is freshman year on the first play or two. That's not a knock on Marcus at all, it's just how things happened for him. Even with all the injury problems and never seeing the second quarter of the last game of a season, he is still one of the best 2-3 running backs we've ever seen holding the all time TD record.

How about we find a big rock from Duncan, and give it to spurrier as a present. And our players can rub it as the run out of the tunnel. We can release balloons and go all out!!! We'll call it Lattimore's rock!
