Purdue ran into a runaway beer truck -- a beer truck that happened to be equipped with spikes, the siding from an M1 Abrams tank, and with a giant flame shooting cannon. Pity them.
Last week's (and last year's) lingering pain is certainly numbed somewhat after the most comprehensive offensive half put together by a Jim Tressel coached team arguably ever against a BCS team. Ohio State finished the afternoon with 490 offensive yards to their name and a 49-0 dismantling of Danny Hope's bunch, the school's first shutout since New Mexico State last year. Onward and upward. O-H indeed.
