Last week Sparty beat Minnesota by seven. The week before they lost to Nebraska 24-3. This league is full of Jekyl/Hyde teams. Wisconsin, in the end, will probably end up winning the thing.
Noon Games Open Thread
Yeah, that's not true.
Exactly. Miller looks like he's getting comfortable running around making plays. He's only going to get better every week.
Screw your Let's Go Blue ripoff Purdue!!!
Braxton Miller looks like the type of player we thought Devin Gardner would be.
Based on what? He's still like a freshman out there, like Miller. Gardner can throw fine, and can't be expected to excel in spot duty. It's not like he can get into a flow (maybe part of your point though).
Gardner's decision making is terrible. Miller may not be great, but look at that play where he converted a 1st down after scrambling for about 6 seconds. On a similar play, Gardner managed to throw when 4 yds past the line of scrimmage. Miller always looks like he knows what he's doing, even if he can't execute. Gardner just looks confused.
Running I'll call a push, because OSU's line is >>>>>>>> ours. (Actually, most of the B1G has better line play than we do, but don't get me started . . . )
Devin's a bust? since when he has two/ three more years to prove his worth.
Let's hope he has three more years. He didn't play after week 4 last year.
Compared to Braxton Miller (a true freshman) he is.
Tell me honestly: if you had to start one of them next week, who would you choose?
Miller looked pretty shitty in his first 6 games this year. Considering that 6 complete games is a lot more than Devin has played in his Michigan career thus far, I think it's a bit early to make any kind of judgements.
some life for Iowa!
In my dream world Sparty derps the fourth quarter and Iowa wins by 1 with a last-second TD.
Purdue alignment derp costs them a big completion and knocks them out of field goal range. That is why they are Purdue, I guess.
Offensive explosion in Happy Valley for those who nodded off. 17-7 Nebraska and driving. I can't see PSU overcoming that lead.
Iowa scores again, but it's too little, too late. Try not fumbling that kickoff at the end of the half and this might have mattered.
Mizzou still up 17-5, in case anyone cares.
Also, it hasn't been mentioned, but NW is whipping Rice 28-0.
And serious question here: What exactly makes the 14-6 USC (NTUSC) -Florida game so much better than any PSU game. Do we have any evidence to suggest that PSU is any worse than Cocky/Florida/UT/Georgia? The SEC seems pretty meh to me this year after the top two and possibly Arkansas.
In all of your estimations
i bet you Sparty fumbles here! missed fg here comes the hawkeyes!
Note to Purdue: He is running on every third down. Just in case you missed the Indiana game last week. I hope Mattison is paying attention to this.
3rd and 15? QB draw every time.
That TTU-OSU (NTOSU) makes me think Bielema has the right idea (83 at Indiana and 70 at Northwestern last year). Never take your foot off the gas pedal. If you're capable of winning 100-0, go out there and win 100-0. Nobody's talking about poor sportsmanship -- they're all talking about "domination".
Hell of a duck on that 3rd down throw by Miller.
Ummm...these guys need to color correct their cameras (PSU Nebraska game)
stay classy sparty faking injuries, phantom false start
Sparty is having some suspiciously convenient injuries...
Purdue and Iowa simultaneously get stopped on offense. Seems par for the course the last few years. PSU also picked up a first on fourth down, but I'm not sure how that fits in...
Purdue is doing their best to lose the game.
Hey Purdue, they're going to run the ball. Stack the box.
I'm continually amazed at how the wildcat works. It's a draw every time. Everyone knows this, yet somehow it picks up solid yardage for almost every team.
Come on Purdue one big stop here!
And this is why you are Purdue...
OMG. Nice job Purdue.
Wow it was blocked...lol
Braxton Miller is king of the broken play. That's ridiculous. He is going to be annoying for four years simply because he isn't really that good, he can just run around in the backfield until something opens up
We haven't even played him yet and I already hate him.
purdue blocks it!
on the scoring play.
Nothing stupid here Purdue...
I told my wife - who sat down for a moment - that Purdue would throw a pick guaranteed. I was pretty pleased with myself.
she left again
How good is Purdue's kicker?
He is pretty good.
Really, really good. And with the wind.
Why would they do that...
They really Purdue'd that play.
guh interception every one knows you're suposed to go for short passes in that situation.
I guess that will matter for overtime
Andddd thats why they're still purdue. Might as well chalk this one up as an osu win.
