    About time. Next up, retire #28. Yes, I'm serious.

    How important is success in the NFL to that decision?

    Regardless, I certainly don't want to see another 28 in the red and blue.

    The standard at Tech for retired football jerseys has been set given the numbers retired. A player has had to have had a College Football Hall of Fame career at Tech, which means first team All-America honors, along with a Pro Football Hall of Fame career. Very high standards.

    Shouldn't we retire #1 instead? Remember, Dixon finished his career (2nd half of bowl game) in Henderson's Jersey

    Does being a major contributor also count?

    Retired numbers should be the elite of the elite with a definite bar set -

    Whereas in basketball they skewed it with Leon's induction and the continued blackballing of Mike Green - football has been very consistent

    So let's leave well enough alone on the football side
