Never knew Finkes ran the hurdles and did so well. I answered discus to the question. Great info as always. 

Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted.

Another solid write-up and this time it show that there may have been a bit of a better selection for the story on the main page. Either way, always a fun read.

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

RunEddieRun,
I agree. Especially when you consider off the field activities.

However, Washington was an All-American and a higher draft pick.

Go here to see how I rated all of the players that wore No. 92.

Something tells me that Haskell Garrett will be OSU's most popular number 92.

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

Not saying that WONT happen, but seeing these numbers reminded me just how good those Vrabel/Finkes/Fickell lines were.  sheesh.  Vrabel and Finkes still have some crazy numbers.  Not sure a 2-3 year and gone player will match those.  

Everything that happens-good and bad-should motivate you to be persistent. ~JT

Matt, again thank you. I tend to agree with Run EddieRun. My question is why are there no names prior to 1942? Is this a cutoff date or were the 90s not used prior the then?

Poco Loco,
Good question. I used the 2017 Media Guide for the jersey numbers and it does not have any players listed with No. 92 before 1942. Is it because players didn't wear the number? I don't know. It could also be because the Media Guide decided to stop at 1942. However, other jersey numbers are listed that were worn prior to '42.

You should take a look at Finkes' tackle for loss numbers again. Only Lawrence Taylor (the Tecmo Super Bowl version) posts 113 TFL in a single season.

Another great read.  Love to see how many of the older players names I recognize.  Good fun, thanks!

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

I know Washington had that one great season where he was an All-American, but I would probably give the edge to Finkes for an overall better and consistent career. Also, pretty ridiculous that he was a second team All-American his freshman year.

And can't forget his fumble return for a TD that clinched the B1G title and Rose Bowl birth at Indiana in 1996.
