Yup, looks like my Braxton jersey will be good for another 3/4 years.

2 and 7, I love rocking my Joe Germaine Chris Gamble Ted Ginn Jermale Hines Boom Herron Jordan Hall Rod Smith Damon Webb jersey

Truth be told, I wear 47 more. But once you see 47, you know exactly who my favorite player was

It's Ok the players wear the jersey's skin tight now.

I believe the SEC players put their pants on one leg at a time like we do.

My #12 has been Sanzenbacher and now Cordale Jones. I can only imagine what the future may hold.

How about future All-Big Ten cornerback Doran Grant?

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.

"C4" is probably one of the top 5 players I'm most excited to perform. I foresee some great things on the horizon.

Erick Smith rocking the #1, eh?

Heck of a legacy to uphold, takes a lot of guts to take ownership of that number as a true Freshman, but ever since I saw him dominate the Army All-American game, I've had a feeling he's going to be a GREAT one before it's all said and done.

Lattimore and smith keeping the same numbers from high school is awesome. Same with dixon I think and now wilson too.

Lattimore and Wilson both #2...that cant stick if Lattimore is going to play on kickoff team with Wilson. i think sometimes in the preseason numbers just handed out and then they have to get modified once games approach and conflicts are going to emerge.

I don't know. I kind of recall that on special teams both numbers are on the field. Obviously not on offense or defense, but I think ST is possible.

although I am not sure, I just recall seeing #4 both on at the same time.

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

11UrbzAndSpices's picture

Nope, only one person with the same number on the field at a time. That's why Dontre had to wear 1 while Jordan Hall wore 2. Bother were on KOR.

It's also the reason why Vonn Bell switched from 7 to 11 last year, so he and Hall could be on kick coverage. Additionally, during Wisconsin's onside kick attempt this year, they gave Shazier a jersey with a different number and a blank nameplate so he could be on the hands team with Philly.

I thought rod smith and hall switched numbers that way there wasn't a problem with special teams ?

Why would Dontre Wilson be on the kickoff team though?

Unless you meant that Lattimore would be returning kicks with Wilson, which I guess I could see, but I think there'll be plenty of other guys for that (Samuel, Clark, McLaurin, Dixon, both Smiths, Marshall).

Berger wearing 44 is going to be awesome too.

Saw that and noticed Chris Rock is wearing it as well. I thought no duplicates on the same side of the ball?

I noticed Underwood and Brady Taylor as well, sort of weird because no one is wearing 79, 70, 67, 62, 60, or 58... odd.

No one wearing El Guapo's number either.

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

Rock's bio says he will play tight end this year if you click on it.

Good question.  An oversight, probably.     ...hopefully.

Id assume they need to finalize his position first, hes switching to TE I believe

Positions/Numbers don't matter in college, only NFL. As long as he's not 50-79, he'll be good.

That site is messed up. There are errors all over the place. I clicked on the various links to read bios and stats. If you click on Malik Hooker, it has Sam Hubbard's bio.

He's on there now, #4 though, which doesn't make any sense with move to TE, since Samuel is also #4 and both can't be on field at same time.

Would be pretty sick to have a stud at TE wearing a single digit.

GlueFingers Lavelli's picture

props to Khaleed Franklin for scoring a single digit. Must be impressing someone.

Terry Glenn McLaurin

No idea who that kid is. I've been waiting for another dude to rock the #3 (I bought it for Zoom Saine), but I did see Mike Thomas is gonna be wearing it this year. Even more reason for me to want that dude to break out!

AlwayzABuckeye614's picture

If on the kick off at the same time Smith and Wilson will wear 1A and 1B jersey's a source closes to me says.

AlwayzABuckeye614's picture

They have Tyvis Powell listed as a freshman......

Interesting that Blake Thomas is still on the roster.

Anyone else notice that Dante Booker took #33?  Been a few years since we've seen that number crashing through the opposing O-line!

Finally have a reason to get a #1 Buckeye jersey. That Smith kid is going to blow up.
