Nothing but respect for B-Rolle. He's got the right attitude for a Buckeye. I am looking forward to seeing what he can do this year. Go Bucks!

We certainly hope the Buckeyes as a team can absorb and develope the attitude and enthusiasm this young man has attained.

Good story. It's easy to see why he's one of OSU's highest-paid players.

Wow!!! What an example and testemonial for others. This young man is the kind that makes OSU the quality university that it is. I wonder what his speaking fees might be in the future...AFTER he is so successful.
Brian, I am sure you will be taking some of those freshmen under his wing and show them the values he holds so dear.

This type comment should be made available to some of the high school "prima donna's" that don't get it.

Let's see how much love you "true Buckeyes fans" have for this guy after he misses a few tackles in an Ohio State loss.

We Buckeyes are lucky to have Brian Rolle.
After reading this I will always watch for him on the field. Then, I promise to contribute good stories about him.

A true student athlete. Can't wait to watch him play.
Bring on USC. Don't expect to see the same thing happen that occured in Los Angeles last year.
Go Bucks.

Love the dedication and attitude, but we must get one thing straight. We can talk about breakout this and breakout that all day long. The breakout season begins with USC. I watched USC offense just punish our Defense last year. Play after play, and scoring at will. I still remember that nut running up USC's sideline yelling "Will score a 100 points on them, they can't stop us." We found out 2 weeks later that USC wasn't all that. Oregon State put the spank down on them on Prime Time Thursday. As a motivational tool Tressel should play that Nut's voice over and over during the upcoming summer camp.

Don't worry about how "true Buckeye fans" will react "if" he misses a few tackles in an Ohio State loss. Just worry about how the "condoms"(Trojans)fa ns are going to act after their team suffers a loss and misses another opportunity to go to the BCS bowl game. At least OSU makes it to the game--the same can't be said for usc

Man I saw Rolle Play and the man can HIT, he is FAST and can hit. As long as he does not over pursue, and shed blockers or Linemen who loves getting to the next level to block (like in the pros), he will be great. as long as he can constantly tackle at his speed and shed blockers, Tressel has no choice to start him infront of the Sr Homan. Dont get me wrong Homan is good too, but Rolle is a Beast for his size and height.

WOLFE if Tressel USES that ANEMIC Offense and Play book of his USC will beat OSU with a ROOKIE QB. I LOVE THE BUCKEYES but USC Players are on a TOTALLY Different level. They live and breathe football. U can sit here and say OSU Student Athletes this and that. OSU academics and all that...thats good but the point is we need BEASTS on the Field too and not just BEASTS in the classroom. And Yes, i beleive USC could have put a 100 on Tressels Anemic team.

Take this into consideration. Cooper recruited some Hungry, "Bright" players that met OSU academic standards Tressel Being a 2nd year coach uses his 2nd year on the job attitude and won a championship. He had Beasts on the field and classroom. What has he done lately? Carpenter, Hawk, Ginn, Smith, Jenkins and Laurinitis are GONE. Clifford (a heck of a Corner messed up) but they are gone..these new guys have to come with attitude and Fire...Forget all the USC clips and Video and ...nuts shouting we can score 100...USC could have scored a 100 if the game was longer OSU would have not scored another pt guaranteed.

Tressel is not a motivator like Spurier, richt, saban, Nutt, or Carrol. Guys react to fire......Dont tame the beasts let them loose......Forget Seniority If a Freshman is a Beast let him loose
