Purdue (1-1) vs. TCU (1-0) Game Week

Not a good way to start the week:

Line opened at Purdue -2 though, so Vegas thinks we have a shot in this one.

As stated, I'll be in beautiful Ross-Ade Stadium for this one. 50 yard line, 18 rows up. Hopefully Purdue can win this one for me!

I'm not sure much is expected from TCU this year, but their defense is well-coached and usually pretty good.  It keeps them in a lot of games.  Should be an interesting matchup.

TCU's D should be once again pretty good, while the offense still has a lot of questions that weren't answered in their week 1 cupcake victory. 

I thought I settled my debts that night on the ride home
But I have still got hell to pay

Jack Plummer, from Arizona. No relation to Jake.

Purdue has recruited very well at QB for a few years now, and Plummer was hand-picked by Brohm. He's a redshirt frosh, so he's been in the system a little while. He played well in the spring game, and ran with the 1's during most of spring while Sindelar was limited by injury. 

That said, he's a redshirt freshman, so we know very little about how he'll perform under the lights at Ross-Ade vs a stout defensive team like TCU. So I think we're all hoping Sindelar can play.

So that early line didn't hold. Now it's about -2.5 in favor of TCU.

The Vanderbilt game was on BTN last night when I went to the gym. Rondale Moore looked more impressive than I remember from 2018, and I was never down on the guy. Being a jitterbug is one thing. But being that as well as strong, instinctive, and playing with that low of a center of gravity is something altogether else.

Being reported that Markus Bailey is out for the year with a knee injury.  If that is true, that is a huge loss to the defense.

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest you just weren't paying close attention in 2018, then... All that was on display all year.

Until last night, I was maybe only seeing Rondale Moore by postgame highlights.

1st round pick.
I might have guessed that from last year's hiighlights. But seeing him on non-highlight downs wowed me even more
