Despite whatever pressing circumstances might sometimes force a team to have to plug a player in from the other side of the ball, it's always exciting for the fans to see a two-way player in action on the field.  Fond memories of Tom Zbikowski, Tony Driver, Travis Thomas, and Jeff Burris surely came rushing back for some this weekend.  For the first time since Louis Nix ran the Wild Chocolate back in 2013's Blue-Gold Game, Irish fans got a chance to see one of their own in Torii Hunter Jr. play both sides of the ball when he caught a TD and played some nickel corner against Pitt on Saturday.  So here's to Torii. He's got an eye for both sides of the ball.
