Bethune-Cookman is the end of October Akron replacement game.


In my rosy 5-7 season prediction for Nebraska, I did have this in the win column.   I can't say I feel that way anymore.   I'm not sure I would feel any differently even if Michigan had won 28-10.

Freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez will start against Purdue, Frost said. Martinez said Monday that his knee is feeling great.

I certainly agree, but not with the bold part
I think perhaps, "Nebraska is supposed to be able to compete"
and yet Frost didn't even say dominate, or whoop, or handle, or anything.  He said they play an opponent and can win a football game.  Others would be choosing to interpret that as a slight against Purdue.    Perhaps Vegas is slighting Purdue with a -3 line?

I'm not saying he shouldn't talk up his team. I'm not even saying he should speak of Purdue like the Boilers are the second coming of Bama. 
But when you say "Michigan was a really good football team. We got a game we can win this week.", you're basically implying that the team you're about to face isn't good at all. 
That's just being a dick. 
And I hope Purdue shuts his mouth on the field.

some more bulletin board material...............

» Husker players showed a healthy respect for Purdue, who took NU to the wire in 2017 before losing 25-24. Gifford called Purdue quarterback David Blough — starting his fourth game against the Huskers — “a gamer” who “plays hard” like the rest of the Boilermakers. Farmer said the team is not taking Purdue lightly.

“This isn’t going to be a cupcake for us,” Farmer said. “This is going to be a real game. We’re going to have to frickin fight, but I think, at the end of the day, if we pull these things together, we’re going to have a really good day.”

» Purdue freshman receiver Rondale Moore  is a “mismatch nightmare,” Neal said. Moore leads the Big Ten in all-purpose yards and lines up all over the field. Neal said NU defenders have to identify where Moore is and, from there, “rally and tackle” Moore, who generally makes the first defender whiff.

Fearless, that's what I'm talking about.

I expect Purdue players to treat this game the same way. We know y'all are 0-3, but we're not in a place to take ANY opponent lightly. 

I find it odd to see the message from the top seem much more dismissive. For example, this was Brohm's response:


Quote
"I think that obviously he was talking after a loss that he didn't like very much," Brohm said. "So I get it. But no, I think everything that's said is heard, and our team needs to respond and understand that we've got to show up ready to play and this team will be licking their chops trying to get us."
He's basically saying we've gotta be ready to play, because we know they're going to be ready to play.

Brohm handled that very well

He was going to do everything he could to have his Boilers ready to go in Lincoln, this just gives him a little help.

In today's press conference Frost was giving Purdue the respect they deserve.  Obviously, Frost's seemingly disrespectful comment was during Saturday's post game presser.

doesn't excuse him from his comment....

My mistake, sorry I hadn't seen that.  That said, I'm not sure that it changes my prediction much.  If they don't beat Purdue at home this weekend I think that 5-7 would be unlikely and 6-6 would be nearly impossible.

Records be damned this could shape up as the Big Ten GOTY.Specially since I nodded off the 2nd half of IA vs UW

Purdue Boilermakers (0-1, 1-3) at Nebraska Cornhuskers (0-1, 0-3)
3:30 - Lincoln, NE - BTN
Purdue got that monkey off their back in a major way, with a decisive home win over what had been a red hot Boston College team.  Winning the game, even by the margin they did, was surprising, but what was shocking was how well the defense, which had been struggling, was able to shut down the Eagles' offense, which was just rolling over teams.  Granted, after seeing Wake Forest lay another egg on defense last week, leading to the firing of their defensive coordinator, maybe there was a little bit of fool's gold there.  But the Boiler defense was smothering.  They held BC to just 229 yards of total offense, forced 2 turnovers, and they only got to double digits in points with a garbage time touchdown against the backups in the final minute.  Anthony Brown had as bad a stat line as you'll see all season, 13-27 for 96 yards, a touchdown, 4 interceptions, and -22 rushing yards.  Purdue had a plan, stuff A.J. Dillon, and force Boston College to throw from behind.  The plan was obvious enough, but executing it was a taller task, with Dillon as tough a back to stop as there is in the nation.  They held him to just 59 yards on 19 carries, his worst game since his second game on campus, when he was still a backup.  It's a different animal this week, trying to shut down the mobile Adrian Martinez.  Michigan has the talent to make a lot of offensive lines look bad, but Nebraska's looks particularly undermanned right now.  Between passes and rushes, Martinez's plays totaled 10 yards on 22 plays.  The Huskers didn't top the 100 yard mark in total offense until there was 6:20 left in the game.  Turning the tide starts with doing a much better job controlling the trenches.  Martinez has the ability to turn a small hole into a big play, but he's not even getting that right now.  Right now, Frost's offense can't work with this line, and for the moment Andrew Bunch, who looks to be a better passer right now, may be the better option to just try and let the wideouts make a couple of plays.  But it's clear Nebraska isn't playing for the moment, and nobody is suggesting the prudent move is to pull Martinez.  Whatever game reps he gets now will be more valuable towards competing for conference championships in 2020 and beyond, than picking up an extra win in 2018.  But getting those extra bowl practices would do this team a world of good, and with trips remaining to Madison, Evanston, Columbus and Iowa City, it's clear that every home game is a must win to keep any such hopes alive.  While the Purdue pass defense showed up last week, passing on them, has been the way to beat them.  It wasn't just shutting down Dillon that announced their run defense was legit, they were already a top 5 run defense in the conference based on yards per carry.  Weird stat, Purdue has yet to collect a road win against any of the Big Ten newbies.  They are 1-7 in Happy Valley since Penn State joined the conference.  They are also 0-4 in Minneapolis since TCF Bank Stadium opened.  That makes them a combined 1-15 in the five newest conference venues.  I think they are due for 2-15.
PURDUE 31, NEBRASKA 24
