It's the dead of winter in Pantherville on the Huddle so..... how many of you have a frat brother that were/are a Panther or NFL player?

Here's a list of the prominent NFL players that were a Sigma Chi, but I will leave the best for last.

 

Drew Brees (I know, I know)

Mike Ditka

Bob Griese

Bronko Nagurski

Merlin Olsen

T.J. Yates

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...and then comes the 2nd hardest working, most under appreciated, bluest-collar Panther of all-time, behind Sam Mills...

 

Brad Hoover, Western Carolina Sigma Chi, Class of 2000.

$40 a month back in the 90's.  It was well worth it.

 

 

I got drunk and laid every weekend from some random chick for about 4 years.

 

 

Priorities, priorities.

You mean having to pay to go to their bachelor parties, wedding gifts and expenses, gifts for their kids, our annual beach trip, etc...?? Yes...having a lot of friends gets expensive.
