The offensive line was pathetic, as with how it has been pretty much all year. This team has obviously quit. If they can play Ohio State and Notre Dame close on the road, there is no reason why they should be getting blown out by anyone (other than maybe Alabama and Oregon) at home.

Week 12 Indiana
Purdue’s offense played great against a terrible defense. Other than that, this game was from over a month ago, so I won’t even bother to talk about the details.

Predicted: Purdue 34 Indiana 31
Actual: Purdue 56 Indiana 35

Bowl Game: vs. Oklahoma State
Purdue is the biggest underdog in all the bowl games. The good news is that more underdogs seem to have been winning than the favorites. Purdue has more hope in this game without Danny Hope as coach. Speaking of coaches, Oklahoma State’s Coach is a man, he’s 40. (actually 45 now)

This is a game I could easily see Purdue winning. Remember, Purdue played tough at Notre Dame and Ohio State. That was also in spite of poor coaching moves at the QB position in both games, and flat out handing the game away with the prevent defense against Ohio St.

The key to this game for Purdue to win will likely be their defense. I don’t think Oklahoma St. plays that great of defense, so hopefully Purdue can score some points.

Oklahoma St. 38 Purdue 24
Final Record: 6-7

I can't stop watching this [Dec. 26th, 2012|07:00 pm]

"Is she going to win?"
"She already has!"



I'm really liking The Chive (which I've never been to until seeing this video) and their sub pages. It kind of reminds me of Gawker mixed with Break.com.

A Gawker replacement is needed because Gawker has gone low class lately. They will go spewing anti-bullying propaganda. (which I'm fine with) They will then use their internet power to bully others in real life and will then weasel their way into trying to rationalize it. (see Gawker bullying Reddit members or Deadspin bullying some athletes/sportscasters)

lol

It is very rare where boycotts work, but it looks like it did here.

I still plan to boycott those restaurants since the only reason they backtracked was due to poor sales. They thought they could just push their politics by creating a problem themselves and then blaming it on Obama.

Purdue had terrible early playcalling and played down to their competition. This game just like the Iowa game left the door open to lose a game that Purdue dominated. At least that didn’t happen.

Predicted: Purdue 30 Illinois 27
Actual: Purdue 20 Illinois 17

Week 12 Indiana
The key to this game I believe will be Purdue’s defense. I predict terrible playcalling will keep Purdue’s points down against a bad IU defense. Therefore, Purdue can’t go giving up 40-some points. The good news is that Purdue needs a win to go to a bowl game, so they have a bit more motivation to win than IU.

Week 10: @ Iowa
Purdue dominated this game, but like always they found a way to keep things close. Two Iowa TDs came off of 2 fumbles (1 directly and the other was at the 10 or 15 yard line) Purdue also found a way to miss a 20 yard field goal (but did kick the game winner). I will give Hope a lot of credit at the end of regulation by not taking a knee. Purdue had something like 20 or 25 seconds and got somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 yards to set up the game winning field goal.

Predicted: Iowa 31 Purdue 14
Actual: Purdue 27 Iowa 24

Week 11: @Illinois

This game should be a Purdue Blowout. I know better though. The good news about things is that Purdue likely will be favored in the final two games and they will go to a bowl if they win both.

Week 10: @ Iowa
Danny Hope better be fired after this game if Purdue does not at least play it close. He has single-handedly in the last month killed future season tickets. Every big ten home game this year has been a painful chore to sit through. Fans will remember that for next year when they decide if they are going to renew their season tickets. The only reason I likely will still have season tickets next year is because I have attended 96 straight home games, and I want to make it to 100 straight. This team has the talent to at least be competitive, but the coaching has made sure it is not. A loss all but guarantees he will be gone at the end of the year. Iowa is a bad team, but Purdue is worse.

Week 8: @ Minnesota
Score with Terbush at QB: Minnesota 44 Purdue 7
Score with Marve/Henry at QB: Purdue 21 Minnesota 0
The highlight of this game was a drive where Terbush locked on to his WRs and a Minnesota DB figured it out. He broke up like 4 or 5 passes on a drive and then got a pick 6. The announcers couldn’t figure out that it is not so hard to defend when you know where the pass is going ahead of time.
Actually, maybe the highlight was when Terbush threw a TD, but never noticed that Purdue’s top WR had nobody on the entire left side of the field defending him. If that doesn’t show locking on to a WR, I don’t know what does.
Predicted: Purdue 27 Minnesota 24
Actual: Minnesota 44 Purdue 28

Week 9: Penn State
I’m tempted to pick Purdue due to the QB situation thanks to Morgan Burke ordering Danny Hope to start a different QB. (I have no proof he really did order it, but I figure Hope wouldn’t make a QB change on his own) If Andrew Luck would have picked Purdue a few years back, (which he almost did) Hope would likely be starting Terbush over him.
I have my doubts though that Marve will be able to go the whole game with his torn ACL. (that he still looks much better than Terbush with a torn ACL) Therefore, I’ll have Penn State winning.

Week 7: @ Ohio State
Purdue’s defense somehow was able to stop the best offense in the Big Ten on the road after looking like West Virginia on defense the last two games against shitty offenses in Wisconsin and Michigan. This was one of those defensive performances that logic would just not explain. Of course they shut down Braxton Miller until he got injured and then the defense looked like the defense of the two weeks before on Ohio State’s last drive in regulation. In typical Purdue fashion, they had multiple chances for a single stop that would win the game and failed to do so. It’s really frustrating too when this might have been the first game all year that I had no complaints about the coaching. Even on the last drive in regulation, the coaching seemed good. Yeah they went prevent, but they should have with how little time was left. It must have been busted coverage when a WR was open by 15 yards and got like a 40 yard gain that would have likely forced Ohio State to have to throw a hail mary at the end if Purdue could have held that play to 10 or 15 yards.
Predicted: Ohio State 55 Purdue 17
Actual: Ohio State 29 Purdue 22 (OT)

Week 8: @ Minnesota
Purdue should win this game because they are the better team and they also play better on the road. The two points above will still only be valid though if QB play or coaching doesn’t screw things up. This is a game that in my opinion will be the difference between a winning and a losing season depending on how the game goes.

I said Montee Ball would run for 240 and he ran for 247. I said Purdue’s offense would suck and it did. Purdue’s defense made Wisconsin’s offense look like Oregon. It was very hard to stay in the stands all game when it was pouring rain. Most others (hell even many of the Wisconsin fans) decided the weather was too shitty to stay for the entire game.
Predicted: Wisconsin 24 Purdue 10
Actual: Wisconsin 38 Purdue 14

Week 7: @ Ohio State
Ohio State might have the worst defense since Marshall. It won’t matter though because, when your QB can’t hit a wide open WR, it doesn’t matter too much. I was about to just put a “no chance in hell” prediction, but I’ll give Purdue an outside chance since they did almost win their only other tough road game. At least it will be an entertaining read on the messageboards with everyone bashing Hope/Terbush.
