Love Justin Turner wearing #2. Pretty bold statement. And Nadar Furrha the next Brian Griese at #14.

like Turner at #2 and having a WR in Stokes as a #4.
I'm not a fan, however, of Denard as #16. 16 seems like a lot of fabric to weight the guy down and ruin his speed. Damn you football gods!
Also, I noticed Craig Roh is listed as an OLB. That seems new to me. When did this happen?
Looks like that old Navarre jersey can be worn anew.
Are you sure?
But we don't need to worry about Denard Wearing #16. By the time he leaves he'll make it cool.
Je'Ron Stokes hoping to be the next David Terrell? Hopefully without the NFL faceplant.
Who was wearing 86 last year? I'm having a brainfart...I bought my Super Mario jersey a few years ago and I'm too cheap to buy a new one...
Beat me to it.
But about Stokes wearing 4, doesn't this seem awkward, seeing as Brandon Minor is also 4? I've seen the doubling up of numbers, but never both on the same side of the ball. Does this mean that both cannot be on the field at the same time?
Yes, if players have the same number they cannot be on the field at the same time.
That seems kind of idiotic.
Just adds to the mystery of Rich Rodriguez's version of The Spread.
R.R.'s version of the spread now conseals players identities.
Or Marquise Walker. Didn't David Terrell wear #1?
yea, as I said below... I mixed up the two. Both did faceplant, though.
Terrell wore #1. Marquise Walker wore #4 on those teams. Still, the next Marquise Walker would be nice. He held quite a few records until Braylon's arrival.
I'd take the next Ty Streets if it got us in a Bowl game.
Terrell wore #1. Marquise Walker wore #4.
EDIT: I really should read these threads through before responding.
how 2 players can wear the same number ... i understand that they wont be on the field at the same time ... but really we dont need to have over 100 players on game day (i dont think we even can?)
As far as I know, we can have as many as we want for home games, but only 85 can be on scholarship. Also, even if we have less than 100 for each game, which guys are left off are different for almost every game. You can't reassign numbers throughout the season because you have a different guy taking a spot.
Keep in mind also that there are 5 numbers retired, so you only have 94 options (can't use zero).
it just messes with me to have dual numbers even if i never seem to struggle to know who the player is ... just seems odd
We always have well over a hundred players on the team, and there are only 94 available numbers. Doubling up is inevitable. Anyway, I'm pretty sure we're allowed to dress everybody for home games (and also bowls).
JeRon Stokes being number 4 is either a mistake or he will red-shirt.
Barring a jersey change.
roster, and Stokes is #6 now.
Kelvin Grady - 19
Official Mgoblue.com has Witty wearing #13, not #3. Couldn't be #3 with S. Brown wearing #3. Witty will be the next Brad Cochran.
Walker wore #4 Terrell was # 1 his whole time at M.
I think the 4 for stokes seems odd. I didn't think he was a RS candidate with how high coach Rod was of him in the signing day presser.
Side note: Denard got his HS #
nice of Cone to switch for him
Good call, I did confuse the two... Marquise Walker also faceplanted, though.
Did have this catch though.
/points at Avatar.
Blew my mind when I saw it live.
Rumor has it that Coner and DROB had a battle on the MIC for the number, and as we all can see, DROB won. That DROB has got mad skills.
If it was a rap battle the coner might of won. Dude has mad skills
Gallon. Mad speed. Love it.
Going through the roster, I was struck by the massive infusion of walk-ons. RR is being very aggressive in giving out preferred walk-ons. This is great in the era of 85 scholarships. Especially excited about OLs Adam Barker from Adrian and Tom Lindley from New York. Both those guys had other D1 offers but wanted to come here. Also FB Jonny Childers from Muskegon.
I'm with you on that. I especially like the # of walk-ons because of how RR said he was going to use the fullback position as being a walk-on promoted to scholarship.
wow..there are a ton of freshmen walk-ons
A few of the walk-ons even came from out of state. Paying out of state tuition would suck. I was especially surprised at how many OL men walked on. Hopefully some of them will pan out.
39 Eddie Murray PK
how is he not out of eligibility?
On a serious kicker note I am anxious to see if seth broekhuizen can get a chance. I have seen him kick and he has a monster leg.
Jeremy Gallon wearing 29 seems counterintuitively awesome. I would have pegged him for something symmetrical, like 8 or 22 (11 is retired, I believe, for the Wistert brothers). 29 is innocuous. He's coming out of nowhere! Ha-cha-cha-cha!
wouldnt be surprised if somebody pounces on Feagin's #3
not number 10? the next navarre!!!
notice brandon smith is # 4 also?
It makes sense that Stokes has #4 if he's redshirting. Since Minor will be gone in 2010 it leaves the number up to him.
But I wouldn't be so sure he's redshirting.. Interesting.
Taylor Lewan #77, the next Jake Long.
Whoa, one minute apart.
beat you ;)
As if enough people weren't predicting Taylor Lewan becoming the next Jake Long already... #77.
I have a feeling that RR and staff will figure out the #4 problem before they get into a game...I know they didn't graduate from Michigan but they coach there and something should rub off.
Its not like he graduated from some hick school like West Virginia...ohhh.uuummm...could someone call Bill Martin and make sure someone is on this...thanks.
Anyone else think that #10 must be reserved for Gardner? How else to explain that almost every number from 2 to 20 is doubled up, yet no one is #10?
Maybe they retired it for Threet? No?
I was putting this together as a diary before I saw your post.
I'm gonna put it up anyway, since the list will be a lot more helpful as a diary post. I'll make sure to link back to your forum post in the diary.
I am liking the future productivity of numbers 2 and 5.
MIKE JONES !!!! 281-330-800 foe
I don't expect Strokes to keep the 4.
definitely 5 for Strokes.
Kevin Grady keeps #.24 in honor of his BAC.
Looks like Stokes will wear #6. The roster on MGoBlue changed at some point in the last day. Good news though, no guaranteed redshirt...
