You could do it by position, but even that could be extremely difficult. Making a list of the top Big Ten players to wear every number would be great, but is that even possible? The answer is yes. I went through every jersey number, 1-99, and created a list

We know this thanks to a soundbite from a press conference last fall. [ MORE: Watch Chris Ash go 1-on-1 with DE at team meeting ] Several of Harbaugh’s players seem to be fans of the Disney classic, too. John O’Korn, the Houston transfer who is battling to replace Jake Rudock as the starting quarterback, tweeted (entertaining) proof of it Wednesday.
