So, I was impressed by how the Boilers responded after going down 14-0.  The D gave up some yards but had some opportunistic plays to create turnovers and made UW (did that for you Badge) work over the final 3 quarters.  I am not in the camp that we would have won if we could have returned the block punt for a TD, but would have been more interesting to see a little more pressure on them.  Our offense has challenges against good defenses like this, but once Brohm gets some of his recruits at O Line and WR, he will get that going.  All in all they showed some heart on Saturday, if they continue to play that way the rest of the season the W's will come.

Crapola?

WTF...
The Charley play on words posts weren't my cup of tea when I was thinking pregame analysis.  That's all.

Us Purdue fans are in short supply.  Maybe not much longer though.  Funny, I went to a party for the Purdue/Michigan game, hosted by a friend.  Of course the vast majority wore maize and blue.  The wife and I were the only people wearing gold and black.  A few of them told me I was the only Purdue fan they had ever met.
Does that count as Michigan hijacking the thread?
I live in Florida.  I have not been able to make it back to WL in a long time.
Nebraska game jsut got flexed to night.  (Freaking LOVE this latest tv deal).  Make it up to Wlaf and you can hang with me and IntegrinB at a fun tailgate.  I'm planning to smoke/inject with honey mustard a bone in ham and will also smoke chicken or turkey.

Or pie.

Here, we do PI.
Now that's a play on words I can respect.

Well that's interesting given the B1G's argument of egalitarian superiority that sometimes comes up when conferences are compared.
It's also interesting that Big 12 threads scarcely devolve into Texas/OU threads but instead always evolve into food thread.
Or a condiment thread.  
I like salsa.
Doesn't it have to be Rotel if BTN is involved?

So we get the pussification of America's basements lecture instead?

:49:
I like the basement angle, I missed that thread rant in the past apparently.

A lot of Purdue fans at work today were bemoaning the lost opportunities of us blowing this game where we had a hammy pulled on a sure TD after blocked punt and probably should have had the pick-6 too.  I guess maybe it's because I am so used to Wisc always kicking the living shit out of us that I came out shrugging my shoulders and looking to the future.  I think this can still be an 8 win team, though we really are going to struggle vs anyone that has a front 7, our line is so avg and has no depth (thank you Hazell) and our WR's are meh enough they cant get much separation (see previous.)
The Sindelar pick did piss me off since it was such an obvious situation to either do a QB keeper or throw away, but I still don't think that swings the game completely.  With Hopkins not getting in for the TD on the screen, I didn't see us scoring a TD, so with smarter play I think that turns into another 3 points.  Obviously Wisc would have tried a but harder on O if we suddenly tie it at 17 there.  The only advantage would the pressure would have been on Wisc and if so, my pregame prophecy of Purdue needing to be +4 on TO's just to have a chance, could have fully manifested.
