Retired Numbers?

Retired Numbers?

Now that we finally have a stadium on campus to call our own, has there ever been any thought about possibly retiring some numbers? Maybe Rusty's # 11- First Owl ever drafted by an NFL team, holds every school record for QB's including over 10,000 passing yards, 2x Bowl champion and bowl MVP.

Is it too early in the history of our program to even discuss something like this? If we don't retire his # 11, what should the qualifications be to retire a jersey?

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

I don't know about retiring numbers, but they should definately do a ring of honor.  Rusty would absolutely be among the first group inducted.  The first year, I'd include Coach, Rusty, and probably Jared Allen…or maybe honor the entire first team.

Around the outside of the stadium there are posters that are probably 40 feet tall of Rusty, Housler, and a few others.  They are actually really cool.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

College Numbers should only be retired if that player wins the Heismann.
