Think Matt Ryan might be ready to toss the ball a few times to Julio Jones and Roddy White this season?
Ed Jordan, or "Fast Eddie" as he was sometimes called, is however, the best Rutgers basketball athlete ever. Playing for the Scarlet Knights between 1973 and 1977, Jordan would finish his collegiate career as the Rutgers career record holder for assists and steals.
In 1976, Jordan guided Rutgers to a rare Final Four berth. Although Rutgers lost to Michigan in that Final Four, they made their presence known, while sitting among the best four collegiate basketball teams in the country for 1976.
Did you know.........Jordan played for five NBA teams and coached for three more?
Back in 2006, when I started this blog, I picked Tony Dorsett as the best to ever wear 33. There have been heated calls for other athletes to be named the best to ever wear this number. So you choose. The person who makes the best case for their athlete to be named best to wear number 33, will win a rookie card of that athlete.
The names that have been mentioned before as the best to wear 33, other than Tony Dorsett, include Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Patrick Roy and Eddie Murray. So make your case here in the comments, for who you think the best to wear 33 is. And if I choose your athlete based on your case, you'll get a free rookie card of that athlete. Make your case here now!
Wilson, John Parker
Griffin III, Robert
No number identified
The above numbers and names are as of late August, 2012 on current NFL rosters. Interesting that there is only one quarterback who is wearing jersey number 13. And the most common, read: popular, jersey number among NFL QBs is 7. Information is courtesy of Yahoo! Sports.
Number 11 will no longer be worn by any Red. Cincy will retire 11 in honor of Reds icon Barry Larkin.
On August 25, Larkin's number 11 will join nine others retired by the franchise. This comes after Larkin was enshrined in Cooperstown over the summer. He spent his entire career with the Reds between 1986 and 2004 and was not only a defensive stalwart but no slouch with the bat either. He is certainly deserving of this honor in my opinion.
