Funchess gets the #1 jersey - Saturday, August 30, 2014 11:07 AM

Three different jersey numbers in three years...this gimmick has jumped the shark.

Ha. Glad I refreshed the page before posting because I was about to post the same thing.

now if Gardner would go back to #12, all would be good

Looks good on him.
 
I think it's great he's changing again, and the fact he is no longer lining up as a TE is as good a reason as any.
 
I hope he goes on to have the greatest season ever for anyone who has worn that number at UM.  Not that this gives him license to continue dropping routine balls like Braylon would.

I mean, it would on the outside seem selfish but when you break it down he is actually giving homage to Kramer

Look good on Funchess but the process is crap.

Good to see Funchess so well utilized at wide receiver - he appears deserving of the #1. Was surprised to hear that he is the first receiver to wear the #1 since Braylon Edwards in 2004 ... wtf didn't Lloyd continue the tradition with Manningham, or anyone until now? Gardner seems to like having a #1 to throw to ... maybe that's been part of the problem

Dude is a man-child who could really exploit any secondary in the country. I just hope he believes that as much as we know it to be true.

He's a match up nightmare for many defenses, especially if they move him around.

Because it's usually not good form to give a number that's become significant to someone who consistently did all the wrong things off the field.

I told my friend, Funchess will truly prove he's worthy of the #1. So far, he's done his part.

One of the broadcasters actually compared him to Megatron- that's a stretch at this point, but he could develop into that sort of matchup nightmare.

I see him more as a Jimmy Graham than Megatron

It was nice to see the #1 back on the field and with a proven WR behind it . If he has a killer year do you think he goes pro or sticks it out another year? Those who stay will be champions ……..

I love it!!!!
 
There has to be a number 1 on the field at UM. And especially at WR. AC started it (My fav wolverine ever) and so many greats have worn it and been studs.
 
I also like the fact its like #44 at Syracuse a number reserved for a "special player"
 
Time to ball out DF!!!!
