Retiring the jersey number of a former player during a competition to replace him?â†µ
Only one thing is certain: nobody at Stanford will wear No. 12 at all for the Cardinal this season, and maybe never again.â†µ
"I can't say that we'll retire it necessarily, but as we've said as a coaching staff, the jersey's still a little warm right now,'' Shaw said. "So we figured we'd put it on ice for a while.''â†µ
Stanford's style is to name the offensive coordinator spot after him, which makes a mere jersey retiring seem kind of lame anyway.
