Funny, I always think of #3 as a defender's number.

Imani Dorsey, Sarah Charles.......

Number traditions have long since gone the way of the dodo in a lot of footballing venues. Just look at Adriano:


He actually spent a few months earlier in the season as #29 as well, but over the last 5 years he's also been ? (literally a question mark), 7, 10 and X (which was apparently a salute to him being number 10 in Italy)...

There were only a few numbers available because most were already taken.

I'm a little surprised Cloee Colohan did not get #5. In the days before squad numbers that was the the classic central defender number.

These days I don't think it matters. Or that anyone cares much.

The freshmen only had #3, 5, 10, and 18 to "pick" from. Looking back to 2005 we never needed anything higher than 22 (although we Kori was 0)

For those of you who haven't looked at the Roster on the U P site:

Besides Kendall J #3
Taylor B. #5
Cloee C #10
Elinor P #18
Molly K #23

Besides the prediction of Kendall with most goals and Cloee with most impact.

How long before we see all of them in game action? My guess is by Labor Day in Seattle.

Haha even in the day of jersey # madness 10 it is a pretty rare site to see any center back (let alone a freshman) wear that hallowed number...

You guys hit on one of my deeply personal and long standing superstitions. With the 2005 team...I always felt the following number assignments bestowed some good luck.

#3 - Megan Rapinoe
#6 - Angie Woznuk
#9 - Stephanie Lopez
#12 - Christine Sinclair

I know its weird!!! But seeing these particular players wearing "multiples of 3"...made a whole lot of sense to me?!?
.....It was a "feng shui equation of relativity" thing....

....like I said....it was deeply personal scratch and made more sense to me than trying to follow how RPIs are determined Shocked

GO PILOTS!!!

I predict that if you add up the starter's numbers for the U of O game, it will be a prime number.

OK. I think this thread has demonstrated that it's time for the season to start!

We're so ready for action that we are actually "talking" about the numbers on the shirts.

We really need some real soccer action to occupy ourselves with.

Very Happy

Soccer action?

You mean there will be soccer action?

I thought that was just rumor.

To show you the desperation I demonstrated yesterday, I was actually following updates of a game between Jacksonville and Flagler college.

The season better start soon, I'm almost out of my meds.

I stand by the Prime number prediction, though. Lots of computing went into that. UPSF would be proud.

Though I should amend that. There's a strong possibility that the roster numbers will add up to a number who's only factors are prime.

Speaking of real soccer action: Spurs 2 Liverpool 1! Come on you Spurs!

North London 2 City of Liverpool 0, with grudging respect to Arsenal for thrashing Everton 6-1.

I'd have to say that Michelle Enyeart handled the taking over of #12 pretty well. Ditto for Danielle with #9.

Anybody roadtripping to Seattle for the UW games? I'll be at the game on the 30th in 2 weeks.

I'll be there. No promises, but I think you'll see a pretty good contingent for the UW game.

Seats on the bandwagon are filling up fast.
