From time to time, we enjoy compiling lists of players who make our non-official and totally unregulated open source EDSBS Hall of Fame of That Guy. While not an authoritative list, the Hall of Fame of That Guy basically consists of any player whose name generates the reaction "Oh! That guy!" and a nod of appreciation accompanied by a general flood of warm, affectionate feelings.

These can be anyone, really, but usually follow a general pattern of being quarterbacks who survived seasons that would have killed lesser men; people with odd hair and a penchant for tattoos; defenders who actively courted personal fouls and ejections; lovable players who never really seemed to totally grasp the rules of football; people who survived jet-ski accidents; hapless high school stars clearly struggling to just stay on the field and not hurt themselves or anyone else in the process; players who did, in fact, hurt their teams immensely, and lived to talk about it; and, finally, charismatic harmless idiots.

The current list, which is by no means complete, is as follows:

Brandon Carter, Texas Tech
