    I just mean like people making preemptive decisions that he must be great, just because of who his father is. Its the media's game, nothing new.

      why would people compare a football players skill, to their father who was a wrestler and insinuating greatness at the same time? stupid (not you, the media)

      He got publicity because he is great on the field, then the media took it out of hand because people would appreciate his father aswell.

          Not only are these guys mostly older than JL, but didnt effect there team like he did either.

            I vote yes. He will have a much harder time without pitcock and patterson blocking for him. He is the 3rd best player on that defense. Behind Jenkins and Gholston.

              Please tell me how JL effected tOSU? They played 2 games this season he could of made a difference in... Michigan he was not to be found and Texas he played terrible, but you will disagree and just look at the stats. I guess he didn't help much vs Florida either.

                hold up. brownsfan is being a biased moron, but why are there only 2 games he could have made a difference in?

                  Because Troy Smith lead the offense to complete domination in the rest pretty much.

                  I guess you could throw in Illinois and PSU if you want.

                      i agree with this, i remember someone on here comparing him to Urlacher which is just insane. Lets see what he does this year before anyone starts calling him the next Urlacher, or Hawk, or anyone on that level.

                        hes allready considered a top 5 LB in college football. And hes done exactly what Hawk did at this point in their careers.

                        hawk and JL are exact players at this point. Size, speed, hands, etc...all match up.

                          I never said they didn't... Your the one saying that its a big deal. How they effected their team!!!!!!! I don't really care what they did for their team, I am talking about their ability to make shed block, make tackle, and read plays.

                          I never said Poz/Harris were better than JL either. I said as good if not better, although now that you bring it up I would say Harris was the best LB in the Big-10.

                            When your underrated Like harris, then get publicity, you become overrated. JL allready passed this stage in his carrer as a sophmore. harris finally reached it as a senior who is 3 years older!

                              ok well don't talk about him like he has accomplished what Hawk has, that is what makes him overrated, he still has ways to go. Please do not turn this guy into a Clausen, or Juice Williams. Maybe after this year we can mention him in the same breath.

                                Yeah getting press early in your career means your going to be amazing.... Like Anthony Reddick, Willie Williams, Reggie McNeal, Gabe Watson, Pierre Woods, 30 different USC Rbs, Charles Gordon,Mike D'Andre and the 10000 other players that get overrated because they have a decent sophomore year.
