Michigan-Purdue highlights (WH style)

A little over 22 minutes long. John O'Korn. Defense. Tight Ends. That is all.

5:10 of the first in the highlights. WH's cut does not show the replay but after Speight is down he is basically sitting up with the sacker on top of him and the DT drills him in the head and neck area from behind.

It is a beat late of a hit but not egregiously so - could have been a targeting call by the letter of the law but was unseen and in my opinion doesn't appear intentionally dirty.

It's right at the 2 minute mark. I don't think it was that bad. Speight was definitely down before the hit came. But it wasn't glaringly after the play had concluded, or anything like that.

I remember thinking at halftime that I wasn't even going to watch WD's video today since there weren't that many highlights or plays I cared to re-watch anyway. HOLY COW did that turn around in a flash. As always, thanks for making these.

Jake Butt never had the speed to make the plays against the good and fast defenses. These tight-ends are faster and bigger. O'Korn can get the ball to these guys on the out and crossing routes. Going to be fun watching the offense open up now. Cant see how O'Korn doesn't keep the job after seeing his (in game/not practice field) talents.

Enjoyed it.  Noticed Higdon was hit helmet to helmet after a good run in the first half.  Purdue needs to clean up that helmet to helmet stuff or they could get a reputation as dirty.   Also noticed Gary faced a lot  double teams,  and O'Korn showed excellent field vision yesterday and was very decisive with a quick release.  His third and 6 scramble and completion for a first down deep in Michigan territory early in the 3rd quarter turned the tide as did the masterpiece the defense painted the whole second half.  The late hits on O'Korn (targeting called) after his completion to inside the 10 were ridiculously dirty by both Purdue players, not just the one ejecdted.

completion!!  YAY!!  It was a good pass for a first down to finish it out.  A couple of things


If O'Korn starts against MSU, he should be even better than today!  How's that for scary?


That Long play at 18:05 where he blocks the ball from a perfect position.  We seem to get a few of those a game.  For a young, inexperienced cover team, that's some fucking great coaching.  There are 3 and 4 year players on good defenses that don't make that play.


The Purdue dude at 19:35, right after Evans scores the last TD.  I love his look.  He just looks like he's resigned to die or something.  You can tell he's been gutted emotionally.  LOVE IT lol.

O'Korn's run at 18:50 is one of those "I want to play!" plays where he shows he'll do what it takes.

Thank you WD. Whether it is because work being work costing me the AF game or a family emergency (fuck cancer) keeping me away from Purdue, I really look forward to your cliff-notes version.
