Big Ten at Ten 9.5.12: Let's Settle the Jersey Question

I'm pressed for time today so I'll be copping out and asking you a question. A few weeks ago I asked whether we should dress up for football games and the general response was "no". There was also the question of whether it was appropriate to wear a jersey as an adult. Consider what you're doing: you're a grown man, 25-40 years old (or older) and you're wearing the jersey of a teenager/20/21 year-old kid. You probably didn't play college football, you're probably overweight and probably have a less than flattering beer gut.

Naturally, every situation is different. Perhaps we should discuss an age limit? Say...35 years old? 40? What if you actually played football for the team? Hopefully, this poll provides all of the relevant options. Links and poll after the jump.
