| FTBL Answer to the retired number question

OK, here's the answer as I recall, circa 1974, before the season. Coach Bryant decided that no one was going to wear 22 or 54 until they proved themselves deserving of wearing them...worthy of Jordan and Musso. Bryant felt that they were special players and that no one else had proven that they deserved to wear the numbers. The comment about Dubose is sort of right. Dubose was originally 54, and then when Bryant took 54 away, he wore 57. Another player had 22 and was changed to 26 when 22 was taken away from him.

Who can tell me which player changed from 22 to 26?
Being a card carrying member of the OFC, I hope they give 8 and 62 in the future to someone who earns the right to wear it.
