Great news!

I look forward to seeing how this translates into results on the field. Maybe Clayton, for example, will be even more of a beast to opposing offenses!

With Brewer it won't matter: he will be so good whatever number he's wearing. He is the leader.

Maybe the top 10 can just wear gold helmets.

Thanks. I thought it was "single digits."

They get voted it and the distinction, but can still keep the number they wish. That number in the 1-9 would just be empty or retired for the season.

I'm pretty sure there are some NCAA rules about numbers for OL, DL, etc. I could be wrong.

OL is the only one to face discrimination

Not wrong. For offense:

Center 50-59
Guard 60-69
Tackle 70-79
End 80-99

But those numbers are not exclusive. We've had kickers & tight ends with numbers on those ranges.

True but the number range provided is specific for o-line. Two players may also share the same number but they may not play during the same down. NCAA makes no stipulation on defensive players.

I think its the other way around. This results from his play on the field and off.

I think the numbers 0 and 00 should be allowed in football.

That would be something.....

Brewer will get a -9. That's how tough he is.

Taking a page out of the Pro All star ballots... why not let the season ticket holders vote for a returning player they think earned a single digit over the course of the prior season? A fan favorite so to speak.

I hope that translates into some serious on-the-field production. Also, sounds like the type of guy Rhule could want later as a GA.

That's actually a pretty good idea, at least for one slot.

The bonus would be telling aggies it is a better tradition than the twelfth man on the kickoff team and watch them foam at the mouth.

So far I probably would've only picked 3 of those 6, but I guess that goes to show that there's a lot more that goes on behind the scenes, in the lockerrom and away from the field that is valued by teammates than fans see from limited view of only 5 or 6 games in the stands.

Do people think Brewer is a slacker or something! Dude is one of the hardest working QBs in colleges FB!
