If you're Purdue, why not run one more play? Nine seconds gives you time.

I loaded up the car with the avatar and nine year old and headed up north from Cleveland about three hours ago. I got as far as Sandusky and said to myself "why the Hell am I doing this?" The tickets are a sunk cost (I dont get the money back I spent if I go or dont go) and my choices are sitting in my house (pissed off at Borges) watching the game in front of the fire with a nice Bells Two Hearted or sit in the rain for 3.5 hours (pissed at Borges) freezing my ass off.
I chose home. Section 3, Row 27 will have three empty seats today. Sorry.
but now you're one less voice that can talk crap about this generation's student section.
Even still, enjoy the two-hearted; I would love to say that was my plan B.
Literal example of a fair-weather fan.
That's funny. And if I hadnt driven 3 hours every home game both ways for the past 25 years I might take offense but hey....if the shoe fits......
I know MSU has been playing better offensively in recent weeks, but this is a rockfight if I've ever seen one in EL. Just horrendous offenses going at it.
What the hell was that, Purdue? Terrible clock managemnet.
Surprised MSU didn't have a guy in the endzone to return what was clearly going to be a tough kick.
I might be the only one watching this game but I like what I'm seeng out of Purdue.
Edit: Apparently not. I don't mind what he was doing there at the end. Yeah, obviously it seems he should have ran a play and saved the timeout but I think he was playing a bit conservative and scared to give the damn ball to Sparty.
NW and Purdue both miss field goals to end the half. MSU defense up 7 on both offenses and Minny-NW tied in a game that will eliminate one team completely from division relevance.
Silverberry Mouhon is the god damned name of the decade.
1 YPC or 1.9 YPA? I guess the right answer is both
Few top 25 updates.
Mizzou up 13-3 on Florida. Considering they are playing without their senior QB that's impressive.
Georgia getting into a possible shootout with Vandy. Dawgs just scored to go up 17-14.
Tennessee up 17-7 on USC. South Carolina always seems to pull these out of their ass, though.
TT only up 13-10 on WV now and it's Mountaineer ball.
Pokes up 17-0 on TCU. I'm surprised at how poorly TCU has been this year.
One not-top-25 update: The B1G looks like shit.
...almost came to Michigan.
The kid can sling the rock.
He's made some nice throws but he's not setting the world on fire IMO...yet...
Butch Jones has Tenn playing a lot better this year than I expected other than the Oregon disaster. Of course some of that may be the fact that the SEC looks to be a lot weaker than it usually is.
How "over" last week are you guys?
I don't know if it was the 4 OTs or the 3 legit chances to win and go home...but I'm still sick like the PSU game happened an hour ago.
The more I think about it, the more it still burns. Knowing that game is going to be replayed a MILLION times before I die sickens me.
I seriously haven't let a loss hang with me this long since Kordell Stewart.
There is only ONE way I think I'll recover...3 things have to happen. None of them are likely.
What pisses me off the most about this team right now is that we've waited MONTHS to watch this team. All most of us want is to see them play to the best of their potential. That's what I enjoyed about watching basketball last year (minus a few games late in the year)...for the most part, win or lose, those guys maxed out. This football team has already SHOWN they're better than they're playing now. I hate wasted potential.
Obviously we would have to wait until the season played out, but if we went 13-0 with the squeakers we had against UConn, Akron, and PSU...I find it hard to believe we'd have a shot at the NC game.
A few years ago I thought a team like Michigan would never get left out in the cold with an undefeated season but with how bad the B1G is now, it's a definite possibility if you don't have the hype machine OSU has. And even they might go 13-0 and head to Pasadena.
I'm not close to over it. Hell, one of the big reasons I'm sitting at home right now and not in my seats at the stadium is crappy feeling I've had all week about the game, specially our OC. No way to know for sure but I'll bet you if we had won then I'd be there now and not here in front of my TV enjoying my second Bell's Two Hearted.
but then I decided to apply the 24 hours rule. I was furious for a day and then I let go.
This is entertainment. None of us should let it get to us that much where it ruins watching Michigan play.
Weird stats for Georgia. Murray is only 5-9 for 29 yards and they have only 7 first downs. However, a defensive TD has them in the lead.
They always give runners an extra shove once they're a few yards out of bounds. Not usually enough to cause a late hit, but certainly a douchey play and they do it all the time. Anyone else ever noticed that?
I don't know....Florida's 53 yards of offense thus far in the first half might not look quite so bad if Mizzou didn't happen to be outgaining them by almost a 4-to-1 margin.
Having said that, INT and Florida gets a shot at bringing this to within an FG before halftime. Indeed, in two passes Tyler Murphy increased his passing yards by about 35%.
Having said THAT, sack and a TFL, then a pass that results in the 3rd and 11. If the next play doesn't work, well, nice try, Gators.
I think it's safe to say that the next play didn't work out.
I don't understand Purdue's game management at all. You've got to go for this first down.
12:18 left in the 3rd and still no offensive points.
Wow. Mizzou QB gets a shove to the facemask after the ball is gone with no call. You never see that anymore.
I hate northwestern's crappy grass field. I hate Beth Mowins disinterested play by play. I hate the way the mics are set up on Big 10 fields. Ugh
You have to think that if MSU tacks on a FG, at 10-0 this game is over. Heck at 7-0 this game already might be over!
For -4 yards passing on MSUs last drive. Down to 1.2 YPA
Whatever the total on the Michigan-Michigan St. game is... Definitely take the under. Wowza
No pun intended but don't bet on it. The MSU team we'll see will show formations and play calls they've been saving all season JUST for one game.
MSU would happily lost two or three previous games just to win one. As long as the one is against us.
I don't think it is going to be much more than that this year.
Minny got a pretty bad offensive PI call that negated a 4th down TD. Still 7-7.
Wow absolutely worst PI call I've ever seen.
Ball don't lie!! Minny pick 6.
These Big 10 refs suck so much ass. So much.
but he has not turned the ball over 5 times either
I am absolutely not surprised Cook is struggling at QB. Even when he does put up good numbers, it always seems the result of razor's edge throws like the one he just completed.
Purdue just had a pick six and they let the Sparty receiver catch it.
Of the big play so far today I believe we still have a legit shot at winning out
Ball dont lie.
Cook missed an absolutely wide open receiver downfield for a TD. Sparty punter puts it inside the ten. Both of these games are just sad.
...is the best offensive weapon for Sparty.
QB:Sparty::OL save Lewan:Michigan
Hmm, could NW be just a tad overrated?
wow the big 10 just sucks.
Purdue flips field position, celebrates like it's a TD. Sounds about right.
...just set up their punter with good field position.
