We were hearing all week that more freshmen were going to play in this game. We will learn more about how they did when Brian does his UFR, but I was pleased with what I saw out of them.
Countess got the start for the first time. We pretty much already knew what to expect with him after the last few games, but he certainly didn't dissapoint. He just always seems to be in the right place. Dare I say he is the best corner back out there for us right now? Not sure if they are just going away from him, but teams seem to be picking on Floyd more.
Not sure how much of this is Purdue's Offensive Line, but Frank Clark looked like an absolute beast out there today. He seemed to be in the back field on every play and he appeared to be taking great angles to not let the QB outside.
Desmond Morgan also impressed me. He too seemed to keep contain better then previous players at his position and at least appeared to be more aggressive at attacking the ball.
I saw Brennen Beyer out there quite a bit, but I didn't "feel" him to quote a term from Hoke. Cant say rather he did well or poorly.
These were all just observations I had with limited angles from the TV broadcast, I look forward to seeing Brian's UFR to see how well they all actually did.
What do you think? Did anyone see anything differently, or were there any players I missed?
