    PETE WERNER
    • He says he "gets to know this defense very well" as a fourth-year linebacker and can play all three spots at the second level of the defense.
    • "I feel like we had a great game plan going into Penn State." He says he agrees there's a "pro feel" to it.
    • Werner says learning the defense was a little bit overwhelming at the start of his career, but through reps and years of work, he's in a great spot.
    • "I really focused this offseason trying to get at the right weight, strength, things like that." He says the focus now is to maintain his weight and strength.
    • Werner says they focused a lot on not allowing the quarterback run to beat them.
    • On the upcoming opponents: "I respect the hell out of these teams."
    • "If you play well, you do have fun." He says he likes competing and winning, so while there's a lot going on in the world right now, they can have fun.
    • On Penn State's offense: "It was definitely not in their game plan to only rush the ball for 44 yards and throw the ball as much as they did." He says knowing they can stop the run from a defensive perspective eliminates it from their plan.
    • Werner says he's trying to get the hang of blitzing from inside the box. He says you have the ability to control the defense from there.
    • He says when there's a lot of talent and knowledge on the defense, you can take some risks or calls certain calls. " I think we've done a great job of responding to (Kerry Coombs') play-calling."

    This fumble (caused by Warner) and recovery (by Browning) was literally a 14 point swing, the TD Indiana didn't get and the drive to a TD we got.

    Bestbuck36 It's a brand new Day!!

    That was a big hit by Pete but the fumble and recovery were all Baron. Needless to say Pete eliminated any thought the guy had of getting his own fumble recovery on that.

    Another good game for Pete who's quietly going down as a very quality Ohio State linebacker.

    Great for Pete but he can’t be the best somebody (Hooker) needs to up his game.

    I don’t think there’s any question that he is

    Browning hit the receiver near the elbow, and the ball was loose before Werner drilled the guy.

    one angle made it look like the guy just started fumbling on his own and when he was going to recover, Werner blasted him

    Still amazed that the B1G replay officials didn't fuck it up.

    If it's any consolation, I'm sure the relay officials tried to fuck it up and somehow happened to fuck up fucking it up.

    They draw the line at not reviewing two other fumbles, one of them blatantly obvious at the first replay (long before the snap). The open hand one is debatable but obviously worth reviewing too.
