PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Seems like every freshman has announced except him...
I'm going to go out on a limb and say probably a number lower than 20. I haven't heard official freshman numbers outside of our early enrollees. Can someone post them. I'm assuming Bosa will rock 97, Mitchell 44, not sure about the others.
Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.
Pretty sure I heard that Wilson would be wearing #1
I thought Roby were #1 last season. Maybe some of the defensive player are changing numbers. 1-5 last season most DB numbers except Williams and braxton are #5. I like to see Marshall get #2 like Chris Carter like former middie alum.
Numbers can be worn by two different players as long as they are on different sides of the ball.
Jim Tressel vs. Rich Rod = Urban Meyer vs. Brady Hoke
Yes, for example Corey Brown and RDS. #10
~Because we couldn't go for three~
Wow OSUNFL do you actually watch Buckeye football or is this another language barrier issue?
I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me
I do have season tickets. Most of the time I give the tickets away to friends or charity. Lots of times I am traveling out of the country. Be honest I love real football which is soccer or going to a formula 1 race in Europe more then american football.
I'm calling it...OSU4LIFE is back!

That's what I heard as well Tampa, both Roby and Wilson will wear número UNO bc of the offense/ defense thing as was posted above
Marshall wont wear 2 because either J. Hall or R.Smith will be wearing that.
Yeah Rod Smith and Christian Bryant, unless they change numbers, have a strangehold on the #2.
Class of 2010.
Correct me of I am wrong, but I thought Jordan Hall is switching numbers with Rod Smith this season?
It's not always as simple as offense/defense. Can't have both guys on special teams either, so that should play into the number selection too. For example, if we had Wilson and Roby as #1s....then only 1 of them could be out there returning kicks. I think the coaches would want both players to be able to return
I don't see Roby returning many kicks. There is no reason to jeopardize the health of our best DB when we have MORE than enough guys to return kicks, a la Hall, Smith (Rod or Devin), Marshall, Wilson, Philly, and I could see Fields, Ball, Dunn, or even Corey Smith, James Clark or EzE.
I only brought that up because Roby was returning kicks against Michigan. I want to have the option of having our fastest guy able to return kicks if the need arises, down say 5 to Michigan at Michigan with 2 minutes left. I'd rather have the option of having Roby and Wilson if they have proven to be our 2 best returners. It should be an easy problem to fix; freshman wear numbers over 80 or something haha (joking but shouldn't be too difficult)
I'm not the coach of course, but just my 2 cents
Not that I don't agree that it would be nice to have him as a returner, but I think the smart thing is to not leave him on the field aside from on defense. Plus, I want to see the new burners out there to get as much experience as possible. I really like the idea of seeing Wilson/EzE back there. Wilson obviously is one of the more electric players we've had in a while, but EzE is one of the more underrated athletes we have right now, I feel.
I agree these guys could be fantastic...but I have nightmares about DAT against LSU his first game, 2 huge fumbles basically cost them the game, and a chance at a national title
I'm not saying Roby should be returning kicks, just that I'd like these guys to figure it out so all the returners can be like numbers 1-10 haha
Agree, but don't you think it was good he did that? He learned from his mistakes, and we don't exactly have an LSU on our early schedule. There's just too much of a chance he could get hurt, and we DESPERATELY need him on defense. He is a definite leader. I think Philly, Devin and Smith did a good job last year and we have Hall back now, so I hope not to see Roby out there.
I guess my only comment is why not leave the option open and not shut it off over a number
Don't forget about Clark either...
seriously...dude has some jets

Would love to see him wearing a single digit number. Like the #1 comments. Will be interesting to see which one he gets. Regardless of what number he picks he'll be blazin' fast with it!!
BTW - Aside from Pitt Brown, is anyone else wearing #3 this year? I still have a jersey that, since losing weight this year, I'll be able to wear again this fall, and I got it back in the Saine days. Would really love to see one of the new burners wearing it.
Thats why you should stick to 50s-70s no need to lose weight
Doesn't Urban have a rule that you have to earn the number one jersey?
I like to believe that my best hits border on felonious assault.
That's what I thought he did with Roby last year but according to Dontre's twitter he's wearing #1
Marshall will wear #17. Wore #7 in HS, but Hall has that number for one more year.
Zeke Elliott will be wearing #15, Marshall is wearing #17, Wilson is wearing #1, Lee is wearing #43, and Bosa will be wearing #97.
Sorry if old news to some but Devin Smith is switching from #15 to #9 this year. Guess Zeke inherited the #15.
Burrows and Barrett will be wearing #16.
I wouldn't be surprised if Bell gets #7. Ridgeland retired his jersey #
Bell is wearing #7. He has a picture of himself sitting in his locker and his name plate has 7 next to his name.
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
Does anyone have 4 on offense? I'm surprised a single digit number is going unclaimed with all these skill players coming in.
Marcus Baugh ftw. Why not? Think outside the box and let a TE rock the 4.
I don't always downvote, but I do always downvote a Michigan fan trolling the Buckeye boards.
Marcus Baugh will be wearing #85 this year
Skill players look faster in single digit numbers.
I'm just happy to be here
I knew you were secretly Kerry Coombs. Hashtag on my friend.
