This is the best troll job since Cajunbuckeye and his family did the same to the Alabama bus before the Sugar Bowl. 

The clones look like they can fight like they were in West Side Story.

As I just now stated above the nine units thing is more of a way to grade how the nine position coaches are effectively doing their jobs/taking care of business.  Urban takes care of special teams.  Watch the video in the link posted above. 

This is not an attack at you just an attempt at a bump so Oldschoolbuck and OP can get their questions answered from the CO of the football program.  My edit above did not bump the thread.

I think that special teams are not a part of the nine units and the DB'special are split into safety and corner backs to get the nine units, five on offense and four on defense.  Special teams are their own entity. 

Edit: The nine units are split between the offense and defense with the DB's being split into two. I got it from a video of Urban talking at Miss St (found in another forum topic thread) linked below. Urban lists the nine units at about the 15:45 mark (although I recommend to watch the whole 45 minute video if you have time). It sounds like the nine units are the nine position coaches areas and the units are a way of making sure the coaches are doing their jobs correctly.  Urban said he takes care of special teams.

Dang it Pfaff, I was about to go to sleep.  Now I don't think that is going to happen for a while. 

In all seriousness, thanks for posting this treasure trove of Buckeye footage. Already bookmarked it.

It's great to see the team player that Farris is finally getting a chance to shine. 

Also, I didn't realize he got into all 15 games last season.  I knew he was in a good amount of them but didn't notice him a lot.  I guess it's a testament to solid slob play when they go unnoticed.
