Mike Carmin of the Journal Courier, West Lafayette's newspaper, had this to say about yesterday's game after Purdue lost in back-to-back shutouts for the first time since 1953:
At least the new black helmets were sharp.
There’s your positive from Saturday. It’s hard to find anything else at the moment.
The issues won’t just disappear. Not this season. Personnel changes are done. The scheme isn’t going away. There’s not much left for Hazell and the Boilermakers to do...
Mike Carmin imitating Ez-E by laying the wood on Purdue with his words.
Carmin on Ohio State:
This was all fourth-ranked Ohio State. This was all quarterback Braxton Miller. This was all about the Buckeyes giving freshman quarterback Danny Etling another hard lesson in playing in the Big Ten Conference.
This was 56-0.
Carmin on Miller and Heuerman:
Miller’s job was easy when his targets — specifically tight end Jeff Heuerman — were wide open and he had all day to survey the field. Heuerman had nearly as many receiving yards (116) in one half as he’d had all season (139). Bet he likes West Lafayette now.
