    For reasons that may become its own thread later, his name came up a few days ago.
    While working in the Midwest, Major became part of the lexicon as the longest playing college athlete in history -- as a running back for Alabama from what seemed like 1974-91. Every school has one -- a guy or girl who just seemed to have endless eligibility. One who has been there an extremely long time is known, of course, as a major Major Ogilvie.
    Steve Carfino, iowa basketball player from 1985-2004 and the Haight brothers, who played for Iowa from 1969-2000 are examples.
    Who's yours?

    When I was a kid, it seemed like Phil Ford was North Carolina's point guard for about 10 or 12 years.

    Syracuse has had a few white guards -- Roe, among them -- who were there at least a decade.

    Swear to God I think Dusty Bonner (quarterback, Kentucky and then maybe Georgia Southern) played college football for a dozen years.

    Nick Horvath at Duke, swear he was their random white guy off the bench for 8 straight years.

    I believe Jeff Horner played against Alford before being coached by him.
