I don't remember the details, but if they retired the number then it should stay retired. I'm not a big fan of retiring numbers because there just aren't enough numbers if we get a big run of great players.
I am of the opinion that it shows incredible short-sightedness to retire numbers at the collegiate level. These players are only here for 4 years.
I do like the patch idea.
