I'm absolutely positive that is a Nike Oregon State jersey. Seriously, compare it to this:
The stitching and material is exactly the same, other than the oregon state logo has an adidas logo over it and the Nike logo has been removed.

For anyone who will be itn West Lafayette on Saurday, if you're getting bored with the tailgating, feel free to come watch the Purdue Men's Rugby team play against Sparty. The pitch is just west of the tailgating fields at 168 McCormick Rd, West Lafayette. The A Side kicks off at 1, so they'll be done by 2:30, which leaves plenty of time to get to the stadium and watch warmups or to go continue tailgating. The rugby game is free admission (but if you bring alcohol, keep it in a cup), and there's nothing wrong with coming out to cheer against Michigan State!

Same here! Luckily, I was ten, and it was still the coolest thing ever walking into the stadium for the first time!

was my first game at the Big House (I was 10). It says a lot when you can go to a game like that, in the rain, and still have it be one of the coolest experiences ever!

He needs to get some rugby shorts, then he won't have to roll them up. I'm sure Obi Ezeh would have given him some of his old ones!
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Current Purdue student here...||
Sorry I can't be of much help about the hotels or bars (not 21 until April), but if any of you guys going to the game are rugby fans, or would be interested in watching, the Purdue Men's Rugby Club plays Michigan State at probably 1pm, hopefully not much later (the football game kicks off at 4pm, and rugby games last about an hour and a half, with a B game after), just across the street from the tailgating fields. So, if anyone is getting bored of the tailgating scene, feel free to check out some rugby, in what will hopefully be a beatdown on Sparty! If anyone is actually interested, feel free to look up the address of the field on our website (second link if you google purdue rugby) or email me, which is also on that website. Nothing wrong with a little self promotion, right? : )
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Yeah...we call it Breakfast||
Yeah...we call it Breakfast Club. The students wake up and dress up in costumes and go to the bars at like 5am. The goal is to make it to the game afterwards, but most don't.

Is it bad that I hope Clemson offers the kid, but that he commits somewhere else?
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I think that it's pretty||
I think that it's pretty inevitable that it will happen, but just probably not anytime soon. Rugby is a relatively inexpensive sport, and the popularity around the country is increasing pretty rapidly. I think it's only a matter of time before athletic departments want to bite on it. For example, Davenport University has scholarships for their players, along with a few other small universities already. In addition to that, many schools will pay for their rugby clubs' travel costs for away matches. Penn State is a pretty good rugby team, and their club has basically a partnership with the athletic department where they are free to use the trainers, weight facilities and coaches, etc. that the varsity sports are provided with. I'm not sure if they pay for their travel, but they're pretty close to a "varsity" program other than not providing scholarships. Also, women's rugby has actually been named an NCAA "emerging sport" or something like that, which shows that the interest is there.
I'm the president for Purdue's club, and for anybody who follows college rugby, things could be getting interesting soon. The Pac 12 just started their own rugby conference, and I think they're trying to set up an affiliation with the real Pac 12 conference for television and other benefits. So, a few big ten program coaches decided that we're going to start the Big Ten Rugby Conference. We have been working towards organizing it and making schedules for the past few weeks, and I'm pretty excited about the possibilities it brings about. For this coming year, 10 of the 12 teams will participate (Northwestern and Penn State don't plan to join for competition level reasons). I'm hoping that down the line we can work something out with the Big Ten and maybe the Big Ten Network and try to get some games televised.
Either way, the sport is growing, and I can't wait to see how big it can get!

So THAT'S why I never stay on a diet...I haven't officially tried the cookie diet yet!
|1 year 39 weeks ago||This is one of the few nice||
This is one of the few nice things about Purdue football games (I'm a student there)...the band does seem to play a lot more compared to the most recent Michigan games I've been to. It's the same with our basketball games, the band is very active in both of those sporting events.

Agree to disagree...I'd have a tough time believing that Todd Clever couldn't make it physically in the NFL if he devoted as much time to football as he does rugby.

I believe they were those, but with a yellow piping piece on the back going from the sleeve, above the name, to the other sleeve, and something similar on the front.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||I'm a student at Purdue, but||
I'm a student at Purdue, but I will root for Michigan every time they play us. I've loved Michigan my whole life, but I just couldn't justify paying about twice as much to go out of state to U of M than to stay here and go to Purdue, which is a decent school in itself.
|2 years 1 week ago||I hate not being able to||
I hate not being able to stand up during the game and having to worry about the people behind me. So, for Saturday, I decided to buy student tickets and get them validated for the first time so I can finally have some real fun cheering at a game!

I would be the happiest man in the world if Danny Hope got fired and they hired Rich Rodriguez at Purdue. I think Hope's head would explode.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Not sure why, but I have||
Not sure why, but I have noticed that they (most of the D line, especially RVB) have had the old jerseys on towards the end of most of the games this year. If you go back and look at pictures, you can tell the difference between the new jerseys and the old ones. I've noticed it in several games, mostly with the d line but not exclusively.

Yeah I saw that play by Campbell too...shows how much potential he has if he can play with proper technique and better leverage!

Anybody know how crowded/long the lines were at the garage sale this morning? Just curious.

Not sure whether it's very reliable, but about a minute into his film above, the announcer pronounces it BUY-er. Looks like it's a home game though, so he may know.

Boiler up! I'll be a sophomore there this coming semester. Boy do I hate Danny Hope though...

It's probably a good thing that you don't call anyone Tacopants on the girls' softball team...
|2 years 23 weeks ago||I have Mike Hart's mouth||
I have Mike Hart's mouth guard from the 2007 Spring Game. It's the most awesome (but kinda gross) thing I have. I also have a shirt signed by him. I also got a football signed by Tony Dungy at the Colts' preseason camp a couple years back.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||I play for the Purdue club.||
I play for the Purdue club. We didn't get to play Michigan's A side this year, but our B sides played each other. As of now, I belive Michigan is a Division II team. I think Michigan's women's side was in the final four this spring, if I remember correctly. A majority of the college teams are club sports, with a few being varsity. As someone mentioned before, Davenport has a varsity squad, and they actually won the Division I national championship a few weeks ago.
If you enjoyed watching the Rugby sevens on TV this weekend, there is a Big Ten Sevens Tournament in Madison, WI in late August. I've heard the Big Ten Network might broadcast some of the matches, so you might be able to see Michigan play then. I'd expect Penn State (if they participate, they didn't participate in the Big Ten Tournament for 15s rugby this fall) and Ohio State to perform the best in August simply because of their experience playing in the past two Collegiate Rugby Championships.
On a side note, the only good thing that I could see from not having an NFL season is that more people might watch the Rugby World Cup in September and hopefully help the sport grow. I played football for 6 years and I've played rugby the past 3, and I must say, rugby truly is the greatest sport to play. I could see why many people would prefer to watch football, but choosing between the two to actually play, there's nothing like rugby!
