    Smile We owe Leonard Johnson an apology!!

    I really believe we, as a board, Owe LJ a big apology and Thank You for the game he played on Sat. After the big int he had the Jayhawks very rarely if at all threw at his guy. He brings it 100% every snap and his kickoff returns are great. He is totally fearless, agressive and has a ton of heart. All this as a True Freshman!!! Instead of throwing him under the bus, let's look forward to the next four years watching him get even better. Thanks!

    Re: We owe Leonard Johnson an apology!!

    The people who went off the deep end and called for his dismissal owe him an apology. Those of us who just shook our heads and said he needs to get it cleaned up and he'll be fine simply owe him a "thank you" and "congratulations" for Saturday.

    Re: We owe Leonard Johnson an apology!!

    He played a great game - a way that he always should have been playing. I think he is an incredibly athlete and will support him. However, I don't think we owe him an apology for his bad actions over a couple games.

    Most of us were never too critical on him, only a select few were. Most were supportive and said they would support him going forward after he apologized, which he did.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: We owe Leonard Johnson an apology!!

    I don't owe him anything as I never acted like an over-dramatic girl on this website like some did. Kid plays with passion and we love it one game, tear him down the next game.

    With that said, his shot was still cheap and he has to continue to play clean to get ready of the "dirty" tag that he has on him

    Re: We owe Leonard Johnson an apology!!

    Your going overboard here...we don't owe LJ anything. He screwed up big time in Vagas but he apologized and we are all good. He is indeed a great player and I have all the confidence in the world he will represent ISU in the way it is deserved to be represented in the future.

    Re: We owe Leonard Johnson an apology!!

    I think LJ came out and played to regain the respect that he had lost from the fan and coaches, and expect more games like this from him in the future!. I think LJ will be the first to tell you nobody owes him an apology.

    Re: We owe Leonard Johnson an apology!!

    If the two plays I remember the most, interception and the hit where he separated the ball from the player, are indicative of his "stuff" then look out. He is a great find and will be a anchor to our DB's for the next four years. Man, that guy hits like a linebacker.

    Re: We owe Leonard Johnson an apology!!

    His kickoff return to the 40 with 3:30 left in the game gave us great field position for our last TD drive.

    He's going to take one to the house soon, and I can't wait!

    I echo many of the others' sentiments here, as I posted in the first thread about this subject.

    Re: We owe Leonard Johnson an apology!!

    It's not so much that we owed him an apology. He owed us one. He gave us a verbal one, but I'm an "actions speak louder than words" kind of guy. I would say that playing a smart, intense, penalty free game was his apology.

    This issue never should have been as big as it was. It needs to die. Some members on this board are way too critical and need to take a chill pill, end of story. <3 LJ.

    Re: We owe Leonard Johnson an apology!!

    I don't think anyone owes him an apology.

    I still don't think he should have played last week, this week, or the week after.

    If he keeps his nose clean for the next few games, good. He's learned his lesson. It doesn't change the fact he made some incredibly boneheaded plays against UNLV.

    Just because he played well doesn't mean what he did was justified, and it doesn't mean that we somehow owe him an apology. HE is the one who should apologize (and he did). And HE is the one who needs to earn his way back into the graces of the fanbase (and he's doing that as well).

    A few more games like last week - keeping his nose clean - and I can get over it.

    We don't apologize to inmates after they serve their time, and I don't feel like we should somehow apologize to a guy who embarrassed his university just because he's cleaning up his act now.

    You're not "over it" yet? Geez, man, forgive and forget.
