    “LSU has always been near and dear to my heart, and I know this will be a credit to the university and the football program,” Cannon said. “Playing on the first national championship team in 1958 and winning the Heisman Trophy in 1959 were great thrills, and I must remember all of my teammates, trainers and coaches who were there as well. No one person can do anything alone. It takes many, many people to win a national championship. I am grateful that I was able to play with those talented men.

    “LSU has won two national championships recently and I hope I see them win many more. LSU is an incredible school academically and athletically. I am deeply honored to have been chosen and I am even prouder that I will always be an LSU Tiger.”

    I'm really glad for Billy. He's really paid for his mistakes, and he responded with humility and grace.

    The only man with his no. retired. It's about time.
