Which is why he comes out in our nickel packages, with Baker and Worley being the two remaining linebackers. I really think the game tape tells the tale as do the stats. When Tuf plays in the middle our defense is better, I never thought Worley should have been the MLB before the season and I really do not think he should be now. I know he is considered a leader but it is not his natural position, put these guys in positions where they are comfortable to be the best they can be and our defense will play dominant.
In addition I can think of very few linebackers in college that are not liabilities in pass coverage. We have more talent than anyone we play, there is no excuse not to play the best players at their best positions, i.e. Worley outside. It is no indictment of Worley to move him to his natural position. It is really more an indictment of Booker for not being good at his natural position and the coaching staff for putting this line backing corps in uncomfortable spots to begin with.
