I think that ever since that cheap shot by the Auburn offensive line, he hasn't been the same. So I wouldn't really blame Glenn for that. I absolutely believe that if we have the chance to draft him, we'd be retarded not to.

As far as the rest of that list goes, wayyyyyy too many slow Big Ten players on that list. I think Lauranaitis is very overrated. Dan Connor might be a good one, but I think if we're going to go after a linebacker, we need to have a guy who can get sideline-to-sideline. I really like Keith Rivers.
Even the announcers mentioned other injuries during the game (back spasms). Come on, he hasn't been the dominate force he was last year and statement stands for even before the chop block. I'm a homer but also a realist and he's not all that and a bag of BBQ chips.

You have to look at the whole player. They ran up the middle on him all day and quite frankly that cost us the game. He should have been intelligent enought to take himself out of the game and let someone play who at 100% was alot better than the 50% he was giving hurt that day.

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.
