    LJ will have a productive Saturday

    I'd love to see a comfortable ISU win, but I think this game will be a nailbiter that will be decided on a critical turnover or a big special teams play. So I'm calling my shot. LJ will get his first career kickoff return for a TD this Saturday against Baylor, and it will be the difference in the game.

    He's been just a block away on several occasions already this season. He's currently ranked 4th in the Big 12 in kick return average at 27.3 yards per return. He's also the only player in the top 5 that doesn't have a return for a TD. ISU is #1 in the conference in kickoff returns, while Baylor is #11 in kickoff coverage.
    It's a perfect stormů

    Wow, didn't realize we were #1 in returns. Other than the Iowa game, our special teams has been by far the biggest improvement. Generally, we have been better than the opponent, which is something you NEVER said last year.

    I would love to see it happen, but we haven't returned a kickoff for a TD in, what, 15 years? I guess you could say we are due... or that it will just never happen again.

    Why just LJ? I hardly think he's going to be the only player having a productive day Saturday.

    Yes Benton and LJ will be starting at corner. With how much they rotate it doesn't mean a ton, but I think it shows just how high they are on our freshman

    While i agree with this i would like to add my thought so dont ignore me. And this is not to bag on DanMc's players, but i think that Chizik is just trying to get through these players and move on to his ASAP. Maybe its because he will have to take the responsibility for what they do or dont do. I have just been looking at it as he is trying to gets "HIS" players in there now.

    THat's really remarkable. Singleton was a 3 year starter along with Allen Bell, a guy that many people thought could be all B12 this season and Devin McDowell...

    This doesnt even address the fact that Kennard Banks started the first game ahead of these guys...wow.

    Or maybe it's just that they're clearly better? After all, Allen Bell is one of "HIS" players as well.

    I didnt want to go to that extent, but i know they are better. Its clear watching them that they are better.
