Hawkins and Samuels both wearing #20 is interesting to me. They both seem like plus athletes which would typically indicate special teams is an option.

while probably irrelevant, we (family who attends the games for years) have noted, UM has had rather unathletic/slow moving LBs for a decade...and watching other programs who seem to have the speed and success, have single digit LBs...theory being, those guys who like the single digit jerseys, tend to be athletes who converted or played multiple positions in high school...yeah, theory and conjecture...but there may be some truth to it. Guess we shall see.

2 players can't have the same number on the field at the same time but not too many people will confuse Aubrey Solomon 6'3" 290 lbs with Kurt Taylor 5'9" 200 lbs.

there are certain numbers I really like and certain numbers that I don't. Not a huge fan of 6 numbers (16, 26) or numbers in the 30s and 40s and 60s.  I have no explanation for this, but I know I'd be a huge pain in the ass if a coach was trying to give me a number.

not sure if serious but prob just for pictures as theyre required to wear certain pads during games.

current players are so blessed with the improvements in equipment, breathable fabrics, etc though theyre young enough its prob always been their norm.  i vividly recall the days of girdles with annoying thigh and tailbone pads, jumbo shoulder pads (for all but QB and K), extra baggy jerseys, the time i got to college we progressed to smaller pads with under armour spandex and whatnot and the equipment staff tailored gear to each players specs but still prob somewhat bulky compared to current gear

Dylan wore 12 in highschool, so 2 would make sense.b/c its open. But honestly since he's redshirting he can pretty much choose any of the numbers 1-19 minus a few obvious ones.. so we'll see
