    Ring of Honor

    Why don't we have one. It would be a cool thing to have. Yeah I know it's not original but it would give props to former players that may have not been known by the younger Generation. What do you all think?

    Re: Ring of Honor

    You don’t see it near as much in college as you do in the pros… Colleges like to stress team and not individual accomplishments… I remember when Spurrier started at Florida he reinstated all retired numbers and had the ring of honor there covered up… Zooker brought it back but I always thought it was a pretty cool statement to make…

    We have the All-American Grove or whatever it's called - almost all the trees around JTS have a small brass (bronze?) plaque at the base that have the athletes name, sport, etc etc. I'm talking about the trees planted around the walkway that circumscribes the stadium.

    I thought those plaques were for Doners. Maybe I just don't read them like I should.
