    Leonard Johnson will play against KU

    Coach just said so on his call-in show. He said the additional game suspension only pertains to fighting.

    Sweet! Hopefully he's learned his lesson.

    Good. We need all the corners we can get against that offense.

    Re: Leonard Johnson will play against KU

    We need him for KU, so I really hope the Chiz finds a good way for him to make up for his UNLV actions in the next two weeks. While I want him on the field, I want the punishment to fit the crime(So to speak).

    Re: Leonard Johnson will play against KU

    Chizik did say the NCAA suspension only pertains to fighting, but he did not explicitly say HE would allow LJ to play the KU game. Personally, I hope he finds another way to deal with it and lets LJ play but he didn't say it was a sure thing yet.

    Re: Leonard Johnson will play against KU

    I wonder if he will have his legs under him by game time. He may be running an awful lot before then

    Im glad to see GC didn't crucify him like others wanted to.

    We need pictures of LJ before UNLV and just before the Kansas game to see how much bigger his legs are..

    Re: Leonard Johnson will play against KU

    I wonder what punishment he has had to pay. I guarantee it isn't light. I could see not starting him, maybe sitting him out first quarter.

    While I do hope the kid learns, let's remember he is still young. Guy plays lights out every play. I bet by the time he is a senior he is a first team all Big12. From what I hear, he is a pretty good student. Patience folks. He will learn. Can't ignore the passion this kid brings. You give me a team full of LJ's and I am going to win a lot of football games.

    I don't think you have to worry about that.

    Now that has been said, generally speaking, I think many of you have been way to critical of the kid. I don't like the personal fouls either in fact it upsets me a lot, however I believe most fouls have been on Freshman and Sophs. Give the coaching staff some credit for goodness sake. We'd be complaining if he never could make a tackle or wasn't aggressive enough. I was 18 and 19 once and made more mistakes than these kids have, OMG. These kids are making their mistakes on the field and on TV, not on the street corner or alley way or on a gravel road in NO WHERE Iowa. It is easy to live in the WI-FI glass house! Again, give the staff their due.

    Finally, if you listen to the call in show tonight, how many times was it stated that we are playing freshman and sophs in that spot or this spot?.....okay a lot. We have a young team if you haven't picked up on that yet and the young guys are getting experience for next year...next year! Let's not go over the top and act like someone stole our cow!

    He also called UNLV's head coach and team to apologize.

    LJ will be very good at push ups and sit ups by the end of the week, and will be in better running shape I'm guessing

    Re: Leonard Johnson will play against KU

    Coach did say on his call-in show tonight that what LJ did "was an embarrassment". I'm glad to hear coach acknowledge that (since so many of us where embarrassed by his actions as well and have said so here, only to be ridiculed by some). Hopefully some of the apologists on this forum can at least acknowledge this now.
