Default Re: Marcus Lattimore statue

I think that it would be weird to see another back wear #21. I know #38 is retired and I don't think USC should do that for #21; it will be a jersey that backs will have to earn the right to wear though.

#1 on a WR at South Carolina seems like it is becoming an honored and revered number. It is not a rule and not even encouraged by the team or fans but that seems to be the way the #1 is going...Alshon to Ace to Byrd (hopefully)...maybe I am just hoping that the numbers-to-positions will start to carry weight and meaning.

His career, stats, performances, etc were all cut short by very unfortunate, severe, tragic injuries... That's not his fault and I don't feel his legacy should be tainted by that. In fact, I think it's even more reason for the University to extend a gesture.

The guy is an inspiration IMO and is someone that all our future players, and even coaches/staff, can look up to. I think having his image/name visible as much as possible would be a positive.

I find it hilarious that you went to all the trouble to blow up the sentence and change the coloring of it and still didn't comprehend it. I said BESIDES WHAT'S BEEN DONE ALREADY... haha.

You don't erect statues for people just because they were nice. Get a grip.

He was a great person, he had one good year though. No way he should have a statue.

Steve should have a statue, but thats it.

I am campaigning for the evilchicken statue...because statues don't have to be just for nice people.

Agree or not. if 21 gets a statue for being a great gamecock,, 14 should well be in that hunt.
