    Is LJ okay?

    I saw him sitting on the bench a bit further down from us and he was still talking to the trainers long after the hit. Then I never saw him again in the 4th. He looked to be moving around fine and I don't think he has any major injuries but I was hoping he didn't have a concussion. That dude is absolutely MONEY. He was shutting people down left and right while jamming them at the line.

    I know it's early but he'll be a pro IMO.

    There's no way he didn't get a concussion on that hit.

    He's got potential, but he needs to learn how to actually tackle. Tons of talent. I hope to be hearing his name for another few years at ISU, and then a bunch more on Sundays.

    Re: Is LJ okay?

    I doubt we know until he either does or does not play against UNLV. We can't afford to lose him after losing Banks.

    Here's praying he is able to bounce back and play next week.

    McDowell dressed but didn't play either. So if he can't go next week that's McDowell, Banks, LJ, all out.

    No...way...he didn't...oh, I see. Just had to puzzle through the double negative.

    It's been a long day.

    That may be true, that it's likely he got a concussion, but whether it was mild, medium or severe also matters, and they certainly didn't take him to the locker room for x-rays, did they?

    I was screaming at the TV both times that happened, but with a full head of steam he couldn't change direction on that field.

    I think we all might be underestimating the impact of the condition of the field on that game.

    McDowell played. He returned a kickoff after LJ left the game.

    it really kept us from being able to throw the ball vertically against them. i was certain coming into this game that that would be our biggest asset, and the weather took that away, but what can you do.

    btw, the home team has won the last 5 in this series right? seems like both programs are dead even right now. but one is on the rise and one is declining... i think we know which is which

    Re: Is LJ okay?

    Not sure I buy the weather excuse, cycloneman. Iowa sits in a pretty soft cover 2-type defense almost the entire game that's designed not to give up the big play over the top and that is generally very effective at doing so. It's hard to throw vertically on Iowa for the same reason that it's so easy to pile up seven-yard completions against us.

    Also, there were a couple attempts that didn't look any worse for the wear -- one of which Johnson was interfered with and on the other I remember he had separation and would have scored had the ball been put there. Isn't the conventional wisdom that the wet field makes it harder for the DB?

    If someone were to ask who was most obviously affected by the wet field, Shonn Greene would have to be the answer. He slipped what seemed like 4-5 times trying to cut back -- a problem that A. Robinson didn't have at all even though he's shiftier.

    I tend to agree with this assessment. Shonn did seem to have the worst time of it from what I saw. I'm also wondering if it affected our long snappers a bit.

    Why do teams that run the spread well give Iowa so many fits then? ARob did have a few issue as well. The field really affected Bates game.

    I think one was LJ #23 and once was Benton #32. Pretty sure about that.

    Benton did the same thing against Kent St.
