    I can usually find a glass half full just about anywhere, but right now even I find myself walking through a barren desert.

    Leonard Johnson is getting himself under control, and creates some havoc.

    A-Rob finally had a nice run.

    Come on. You are still buying the 'we've got more talent on our scout team OL than our starting line (circa fall '07)' comments? Aclone, while your optimism is nice sometimes, I also wonder if you're not an Iowa fan or Nebraska fan hell bent on making clones look like Ostriches sometimes. If those two kids were half as good as we internet fans hope, our OL wouldn't be as putrid as it is now. I hope they do become solid contributors, and maybe all-conference, at some point. However, I refuse to continue to buy into how many studs we have that are on scout team year in and year out only to wonder when they might start contributing when it counts.
