Purdue Bucknotes

Bucknotes are your pocket guide for the game. Print them off and amaze your friends with your knowledge and insight.

Two years ago, a one-win Purdue squad took advantage of four Terrelle Pryor turnovers to upset #7 Ohio State in West Lafayette, leading first year coach Danny Hope to tell us all to "get used to it."

We were furious at the time, but thanks to a forfeited win in 2010 and another collapse in Ross-Ade stadium last year, Danny Hope, embattled as he may be, is officially undefeated at 2-0 against the Buckeyes.

Aside from trying to hand Hope a Buckeye loss that will pass a [citation needed] check on Wikipedia, tomorrow will also be a battle of Devin Smiths.

Purdue's Devin Smith is a juco-transfer holding down the right guard spot on the offensive line. Ohio State's Devin Smith is a burner that drops a sure touchdown every now and then, but always seems to redeem himself. Advantage: Devin Smith.

Think the defensive stats are a little off, John Simon listed with 0 sacks and 2 interceptions?

Gah, fixed. Thanks for the heads-up.

Mine still shows All Flannel Tops with 2 picks and no sacks, 12 PBUs, I don't remember seeing him dominate in coverage quite that much.

Doesn't Devin Smith have 5-6 td catches..2 against Indiana, 1 vs Miami-O, 1 vs Cal, 1 vs Sparty and one in another game? 
Simon still has pretty solid stats for having kind of a down year.

I know this is not what I am supposed to take away from bucknotes but we get the galloway crew.  I can't wait for "awfully quiet in here".
