With right model in Caputo, now roles reversed for Mark Pelini
Mark Pelini is vying for the starting center job. If he's successful, he'll be the third walk-on to do so in five years. “Really, I just want to win. ... Do as well as we can as a team. Whatever my role ends up being, toward that goal, that's what I'll do,” Pelini said.
