I figure since so many people are posting in the forum about todays game, maybe I should too. The first quarter was embarrassing, hence the title of this post. One can only hope Braxton Miller is ok, as I do. But I think it's safe to say he lost the Heisman today. Unless Geno Smith & Collin Klein have terrible games today. He posted his lowest totals of the season across the board: (9-20, 113yds, INT) & (12att, 47yds, 3.9avg, TD). It looked like he was really about to get something going on that last run, but there was some funny business going on today I think. Lots of things were just going wrong & out of our control. That fumble should have been reviewed because Braxton was clearly down. Kawaan Short & his late hit on Braxton, & that last tackle where Miller just got dragged down onto his head. I officially hate Purdue, they join Illinois, Wisconsin, & Michigan as the walking abortions of the Big Ten in my eyes after this game. Atleast Carlos Hyde did good today.
Note: I hope people don't look at this & think I'm not concerned for Braxton Miller's health simply because I'm pointing out the severe hit his Heisman campaign took today, because I know I'm bound to get atleast one person who says it. I just figure the "prayers for Braxton" posts are really starting to fill up the forum already. I'm simply being realistic, I hope the dude will be ok & I'm all for sitting him out next week. We won today, but it cost allot to get that win, & we seriously have some issues to sort out. Also, I may be crazy, but the defense looked better today. But I'm not gonna give them much credit, I saw too many big plays. It's even worse when you start off the game by giving up a big play.
