When you talk about great character and attitude, you would be very hard pressed to find two more awesome football players than Tuf Borland and Pete Werner. I just don't get the hate they receive from some Buckeye "fans" on this site.
They took bad angles and were out of place a lot last year, and it was very frustrating to watch. But these are talented and hard-working football players that are going to play in a different system - if coach Mattison and Washington believe they belong on the field, that is good enough for me. Pete and Tuf are easy to root for - I hope they have great seasons. I think we are going to see a lot of different LBs early in the season, which is good because it sounds like Coach Mattison is going to play the right people and package for specific opponents (might see a completely different group when lining up against Purdue or Sparty.) Its going to be a great season.
