So happy that Collier got #13, kinda pigeonholing into the backup QB/Kenny Guiton role, but I guess he's being realistic. Good for him

Class of '16

Raekwon wearing 5 could look pretty badass in the middle. Surprised that Dontre changed his number, but he wore 2 in high school. Also worth noting that apparently Corey Smith was wearing 7 during bowl practices. Not sure what that means for Rod Smith, though.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

D'Andrea was #5, and that was around the time I first started playing the EA sports NCAA Football games.  Ever since, I always give 5-star MLBs #5.

Johnny Disxon is #1

Who's taking over #2 on defense?  I thought it would be McMillan. I hope Dixon lives up to the hype, I bought a #1 jersey last year because of D. Wilson.  I would like to add a #4 to my collection though.

Bell possibly

Burrows, Webb and Lattimore all wore #2 in high school, right? One of them, I'd assume. If Bell's switching numbers, he'll be in a 7 jersey.

True. If Burrows secures a starting job then I could see him in it

Depends on how many redshirts, which according to UFM we aren't redshirting as many as last year

Lattimore was saying on ask.fm that he wanted the #2 jersey for defense but since he isn't on campus it might go to someone already there if they snatch it up first

Almost all of our skill position players are going to wear single digits. Elliot's the only starter most likely who won't. That's gonna look awesome out there

A true indication of the offseason is all of the #HOTSPROTSTAKES and analysis of jersey numbers.  Don't get me wrong, any football talk is better than no football talk - but I don't care if the offensive skill players are wearing single digits or Roman numerals - as long as the ball crosses the goal line.

Well we always need something to debate right?

Keep things fresh

Agree keeping it fresh is important - keeps us from re-living all of the "I want the old site back" forum topics.  It's just funny to see Twitter blow up about who's wearing what at practice - like its the Oscars red carpet.

I could see Roman numerals appearing on an Adidas alternate in the near future.

Its possible that EZE will get #7 though and give 15 to someone like Hubbard or Berger

What about Rod Smith, then? Dontre took 2, is Rod Smith switching to 7? I heard that Corey Smith was wearing 7 during spring drills, plus I think Jalin Marshall said he wanted it.

Theres only so many numbers lol. Not everyone can have 2 or 7

I think itll be Dontre in 2,Rod in 3,MT in 10,Bell in 7,Burrows in 6 or 9...of course I have no freaking idea and to be honest I get the numbers mixed up a lot

If like to see Rod Smith switch to 34. I'm expecting big things.

I'd like to see him go to #25, his HS number at Harding.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

I have always loved the #3. I hope Mike Thomas and all of his swag and trash talk  balls out in it this year.

Greatest number of all.

Wow.  Wasn't Elliot #2 in HS too?  Popular number.

 

I wear it in beer league softball in the summer and I must say, do a poor job representing it.

Girlfriend jokes and "OMG SHAZIER HAD BETTER STATS!!!!!!!!!!" arguments aside, Manti Te'o was a monster in college and is doing very well in the NFL.

It still was laughable that he got a heisman invite.

Shazier was better in 2012 and had better stats too!!!

Why did Dontre go from #1 to #2? Anyone know why Devin Smith went from #15 to #9?

Devin Smith idolized Jeremy Maclin, who wore 9 at Mizzou.

hopefully more of these instagrams and vines wind up hitting the web throughout the spring practices.

I think i seen somewhere that Jeff Greene was wearing #8 this year.

Greene wore 8 last year but there were 3 #8s, Greene, Spence and....can't remember the last one.

Vonn will own which ever number he wears.  Gold Tipped Silver Bullets are about to be chambered in the Ash Rifle.

Doesn't or Didn't Cam Williams wear #5?

Go Buckeyes!

He wore #55 last year, and I believe he did wear #5 the year before.

Kyle Trout will wear No. 71

I saw Nuerenberger on the official roster with Trout as not having a number, any word on the kicker?

Number 4 is underrated. We haven't had a good one for a while. Glad to see Samuel got it.

What number is Jalin Marshall wearing?

Who is #34 in the spring practice photos?

Jamal Marcus?
