Caleb Farley *puts on maroon & orange shades* because he's going to allow 0 completions this year.

Fuente for 0 room for error /s

Gotta be a big DT, maybe Pollard or Kendricks

It should be an NCAA rule that it goes to the biggest guy on the defensive line.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Hokiebird because there's going to be 0 football played this fall. *sobs*

*boos vehemently*

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Brock Hoffman, despite 0 snaps for the good guys so far everything I read about how he handled all the BS last year tells me he deserves it...and also he would be terrifying in 0

(add if applicable) /s

In Russia, 0 gets you!

Brock Hoffman is my vote as well

I was going to just suggest someone from the O-line, so he should qualify. The big O should get the "0" number.

Either that or Oscar B.

Recovering scientist working in business consulting

Guys, I'm no scientist, but I'm pretty sure it's that silent commit that was so silent we never found out he was on the team, Ut Prosim! He's already got his name stitched in to the collar of the jersey.

His name is pronounced, "You-tee pro-sim".

One of my buds probably remembers the story better, but at some point when I was in the HTs, a new VT President in his speech said that he would try to live up to the ideals of the university motto, "you-tee prosim".

Kevin, pls.

I want a DT to wear 0 every season.

I've got a better one.

It should go to any player with a last name along the lines of "National Championships".

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Solid.. Solid

I got nobody, because 0 games will be played

Sam MF Rodgers because 0 players on the current team are pushing a truck through the parking lot for a warmup

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
β€œI served in the United States Navy"

Side-note: I almost re-sized this picture when I embedded it but decided against it. Upon coming back to the thread later and seeing it in all of its full sized glory, I made the right damn decision.

How do we determine who gets the 0 jersey? I know the 25 jersey but I didn't know the 0 jersey was a hot commodity...

It's a rule change. The 2020-2021 season is the first time the number zero is allowed.

Thanks.... I say Ashby.... 0 yds allowed to running backs....

If this was historically available who should have gotten it? I would love to see it on some of those bowling ball backs like Ox.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Played in high school with Martin. One of the nicest dudes ever. In practice my freshman year (his junior) I brought him down at the line in close-line sorta fashion (just threw my arm out and got him around his neck). He, rightfully so, wasn't overly happy it. So I mouthed off back him, like an idiot. A couple plays later he met me in the open field and knocked the ever living shit out of me. I technically made the tackle, but it sure as hell wasn't because I "tackled" him. With the wind all but knocked out of me, he pulled me back up, patted my shoulder and said "don't tackle me by my neck." Message received. Martin Scales may have not been the fastest dude, but my gosh he was freight train.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Someone on the O-line who is the best road grader, so the RB has a bullseye for who he should follow to find a hole.

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Seasonal Brew means High ABV for football season and standard the rest of the year.

This comment is reserved for a sick Drew Harris reference, bro.

Leonard. Duh.

Tyliek Williams 😎

I've got this feeling
The tide is turning now baby
Funny feeling everything's gonna be alright now

Honorary Jersey retired in Bud Foster's name for the record number of defensive shutouts in his VT career.

This would be the bees knees, Daddy-O.

Leonard. Duh.

Let the player that earns the 1 appoint 0

"If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"

This season? Crawford.

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

Bradburn.

Because if the rules hold up about international students he might play in 0 games this year.

But mostly it's because his first name starts with O

This deserves more legs. Here's two.

Barn0.

Looks like a bullseye. We should put it on the receiver our QB's have the hardest time hitting.

And the winner is... Jalen Holston!

Hoping this young man does big things this season.

It should be the an honorary number for defensive backs. I'm fine with it being awarded weekly like #25 or for the year like #1.

#0 for this year is not unique to VT. It's a rule change for NCAA football.
