Countdown to Kickoff: 2 Days

2. There have many great Buckeyes to wear the number 2, particularly in recent years. The one that stands out to me the most is Mike Doss. The hard-hitting safety ranks 11th in school history for career tackles at Ohio State, and is first all time for career tackles by a defensive back. The three-time All American helped lead the Buckeyes to a national title during the 2002 season, a season in which he was named Big 10 Defensive Player of the Year. Doss also added 8 career interceptions, which is no small feat for a strong safety whose primary role was run support. Doss was a special talent and is probably my next favorite defensive Buckeye ever after AJ Hawk. There were many OSU greats to wear #2, but Doss was #1 in my eyes.
