I don't know what it means either, but i googled it and here is a good definition in wikipedia

"
The term refers to a question, problem, solution, or controversial issue which is obvious to everyone who knows about the situation, but which is deliberately ignored because to do otherwise would cause great embarrassment, or trigger arguments or is simply taboo. The idiom can imply a value judgment that the issue ought to be discussed openly, or it can simply be an acknowledgment that the issue is there and not going to go away by itself."

I'm assuming the person is posting it asking why 2 of our other players aren't the Team captians..

I have a question about the Team captains, are they the players that audible on the team? because having 2 Dlinemen isn't a good choice imo.

If this is true, it can justify the criticism Clowney has been getting from the fans and media.

Or maybe the team is trying to recognize some of the guys that (probably) won't be here next year, and will choose "bigger name" captains for the Clemson game, which is definitely a bigger deal (ie Clowney and Vic).

Message boards sure can turn something that means nothing into a huge deal.

The team voted and 4 captains were named and 4 co captains and none are name clowney. The potential number one draft pick isn't chosen by his peers as a captain for his possible last sec game? Speaks volumes to me.

I guess the defense remembered when Clowney called them out and then laid out for the Kentucky game. Not one vote not one believed Clowney should be a captain.

It doesn't surprise me one damn bit.

Being talented doesn't automatically make someone a leader.

They chose the right four.

I'm sure Shaw was a unanimous choice.
