Not Much of a Tradition

Glenn Dorsey is the latest LSU defensive lineman to carry on what may or may not be a proud tradition.

According to Dorsey's NFL.com profile, "Dorsey continued a recent tradition of Tigers defensive linemen earning first-team All-American honors, as at least one LSU player has received that honor since the 2000 season."

Don't you usually need more than one player to do something before it can be considered a tradition? Don't you need at least two points before you can define a line?

The profile, of course, was meant to say something along the lines of "Dorsey continued a recent tradition which has seen at least one LSU defensive lineman earn first-team All-American honors in every season since 2000." But the profile didn't say that, now did it?
