Borland, Fuller, Young, Dobbins, Fields, Hill Jr.
those are my captains.
The Future is Bright at Ohio State
Nothing against Fields but I'd take him out and replace him with Landers. BB has been with the program longer and is one of the emotional leaders on defense currently. I think Fields will be a captain one day it just may not be this season (I'm not even sure Haskins was a captain last year tbh).
That’s true. I just wonder about how much has Fields won the team over and do they look at him as a captain.
Time is not the only deciding factor when selecting captains. A person could be there for four years and be just slightly an above average leader, and another could be there for thirty days and be the best leader you've ever seen. (Of course this is hypothetical and has no relevance to the Fields/Landers debate.)
With that being said, in my personal opinion, it is a must to name your starting QB as one of the leaders no matter how long he has been with the team. He is expected to be a leader regardless, but being named to the formal position not only helps the QB's mentality of what he must do and the way he must act but also helps with how the rest of the team should perceive him as well.
Honorary captains have been named in the past as well, in the case that someone like Landers is not able to make (let's say) the final cut of 6 captains for the team initially.

Well we know who is gonna start
I am beyond excited to see our defense this year.
“SWING!....... SWING!!........ SWING!!!!!!!”
Cooper, Borland, Landers, Fuller. A lot of good options to choose from on defense. Curious to see who they choose on offense. Only one obvious choice in KJ Hill. Maybe they'll surprise us and go with Jonah Jackson? That OL definitely needs a leader.
I’m really hoping that Bowen steps up in that leadership role for the Slobs.
Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted.
Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.
Start with the three guys who went to B1G Media Days in Chicago: Cooper, Fuller, and Hill. Then layer in Borland or Werner or Landers on defense. Offense is a crapshoot: maybe Mack and/or Victor, possibly Munford. I just can’t see a transfer like Fields or Jackson getting it. It would take a lot of work in a really short period of time to win their coaches’ and teammates’ confidence as an undisputed locker room leader; not impossible but it seems unlikely to me.

Borland, Cooper, Fuller, Hill, Landers, Dobbins.
That's my bet
No more than four. Everybody can't be a captain.
Typically you would have a near equal number of offensive and defensive guys, but I could see 5 captains with only a single offensive guy. One being KJ Hill, but then Young (he's been said to be the vocal leader on defense), Cooper, Tuf, and Fuller.
Dobbins, Munford, Landers, Fuller, Harrison, Farrell
Those would be my picks.
Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.
If Jordan Fuller isn't a captain I'll eat my hat
Fuller, Young, Hill, Munford?
Hill Jr Dobbins Fuller and Borland
Enjoying daily the 62-39 ttun beatdown.
2 offense 2 defense.
Hill Jr., Dobbins
Fuller, Harrison, maybe Landers or Cooper if you have 5
Don't overdue it with more then 5 period

Just for clarification... We are talking about Malik right? When I first read this I thought you meant Zach. Then it hit me you probably meant Malik which I can see, but even though Tuf Borland's play was suspect at times last year... Hard to question his toughness and grit. By all accounts, he had no business coming back from that injury as quickly as he did. I still think he probably deserves and will be voted a captain again even if guys like Mitchell, Pope and Browning are pushing for more reps in the rotation.
you want your 5th year seniors at captains for sure. Hill, BB, Davon, maybe Alabi or even Bowen. They all deserve it.

Is the conference being streamed anywhere?
Found it just in time if you still need it!
No problem, took me a good 20 minutes to find it.
It's a little strange that this presser hasn't started yet. Day doesn't usually run a half hour behind.
And Toledo still sucks.
I'm impatiently waiting with the stream pulled up...
Same here man, an hour and counting
