    Chizik confirms LJ will play vs Kansas

    Don't know if this was "officially" announced on here. Last I had heard was that there was no mandatory NCAA suspension.

    Re: Chizik confirms LJ will play vs Kansas

    Is it because he was ejected because of 2 PF. Not ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct?

    Chizik mentioned Monday night that the automatic suspension only involves fighting. Which LJ obviously did not do.

    That's good news, as we really need LJ in there. Hopefully, Chiz has made his point to LJ that his previous behavior won't be tolerated (I have no doubt that he has), and this can all be put behind us...

    Re: Chizik confirms LJ will play vs Kansas

    I find it amusing that some of you are saying this is good news. when on sat night, sunday, and parts of monday you wanted him suspended or kicked off the team. It is good news but talk about flip flop attitudes.


    Jeremy, this adds a little to your recent write of cyclone fans. while i didnt agree with you at the time, so much, i can see what you mean.

    No flippy-floppy here. I'm glad he apologized and coach has enough confidence in him to play him right away - I fully trust Gene's assessment, obviously.

    I would have just preferred a bigger message be sent and for him to sit another game. However, that same message may still have been sent - just not as publicly as many of us would prefer.

    Re: Chizik confirms LJ will play vs Kansas

    His actions on the field will speak volumes. Good, aggressive play without PF's will go a long ways to show he's learned his lesson. If he gets flagged for headhunting, see ya.

    I hope he can go a couple of games without a flag, but if he goes the whole season without another I will be a little disappointed.

    Re: Chizik confirms LJ will play vs Kansas

    I disagree with the coaches on this one.

    I still think he should sit, at a minimum, one game.

    That being said, I'm glad he'll be able to contribute and we will clearly need him against Kansas.

    If he keeps his nose clean for a few games, I guess the message will have been received. Another PF against KU, and if he doesn't sit for the rest of the game, at least, I'll be very disappointed.

    I don't trust the kid yet, I still think he should sit.

    Re: Chizik confirms LJ will play vs Kansas

    "He's going to play," said Chizik, who added that cutting down on penalties has become a priority. "There's a fine line here, because we're trying to make our team an aggressive team."

    Re: Chizik confirms LJ will play vs Kansas

    I don't mind the personal fouls here and there - I am tired of watching ISU be everyone's whipping boy. Time to stand up and punch people right in the mouth. I want teams to fear ISU and if this is what they need to do to change their image, so be it. HOWEVER they need to be a little smarter when they are being "aggressive" so it doesn't cost them the game again.

    Re: Chizik confirms LJ will play vs Kansas

    Did anyone hear Bruns this morning on KXNO? He said it pretty well - that "we alumni" aren't happy watching all these penalties and it's becoming embarrassing.

    He also made mention that the coaches are trying to keep the team aggressive, but that the aggressiveness is quickly negated when you're giving up 15 yard chunks at a time.

    It's not unheard of to be aggressive between the whistles.

    As it stands - I'm perfectly ok with LJ playing next weekend. He got sat for the remainder of the UNLV game and I sure as hell wouldn't want to be privy to the tongue lashing he got from Chizik. He stood up and publicly did what he needed to do in taking responsibilty for his play. And probably did more than most other players had done prior - by calling UNLV. That's all in addition to whatever physical punishment he may have got. His dues are paid, I'm sure.

    It does little at this point to sit him further. I only was for a suspension because I thought it was mandated. But since it isn't - I see little reason to continue with more punishment. I think we can all pretty much rest assured that if he pulls anything remotely similar - we won't see him even suited up for quite a while.
