A year early he says? Where have we heard that before? Hoping for the same ending too.
That should be the B1G motto on expansion.

Archie or Eddie
Can we please quit having JT act like he's going to run, step back and throw. He hasn't completed one yet. Just let him throw it.
I happy it is only a sprained ankle. The way he went down and reached for his knee I thought for sure tore something. Especially since he didn't want to put any pressure on it. Rest up KBD and get better soon.
Ok so the damn picture didn't load. Sorry guys my bad.
I member. Sorry couldn't help myself.
Martell looks like a Manziel clone without all the off the field drama. He's got a strong arm, good accuracy and great athleticism. I hope they can convince Bubba Bolden to come here too. That kid is always making plays on defense.
If Iowa shut down Bitchigan then with our speed and talent we should have no problems doing it. I also heard that their crowd noise interfered with Speight and the passing game. If that's true just wait until 108,000+ are letting him have it.
I hope they embarass Sparty so bad that they play pissed off at Penn St. See we still control our own destiny (kind of).
McCall is a legit freak athlete and weapon. He is going to take over for Samuel next year and not miss a beat.
Victor is going to be a great wr. He made a great adjustment on that td even being interfered with. I like the td catch but I thought his other catch showed his potential. He laid out with full extension to catch a JT fastball behind him. That's a great catch and monster catch radius for a true freshman.
Crush Sparty this week then cheer them next week. This is kinda flopped from last year. We needed Penn St to beat MSU the final week last year now its reversed. Hopefully it works out better this year.
Looks like we're in for another long year. They can't shoot free throws, no help defense and can't beat the zone.
I can't upvote this enough. Hopefully he sticks to this.
I said it in the open thread and in the after game article. They never changed the snap count. As soon as JT put his hand down the ball was snapped. Every defender started timing it just like Wisconsin. The only difference is it took Penn St the whole 1st half to figure it out. The psu defense was timing it and getting the jump off the ball. The o line had to watch for the snap, the d line just watched JT. It gave them a 1/2 to 1 step advantage on those guys. At that point there's no lineman in the country that won't get beat being handicapped like that.
I'm with everyone on the o line struggling but I see something the last 2 weeks and if I see it of course the opposing coaches see it. They never change the cadence. Once JT's hand went down the ball was snapped. Every defender can see it the o line can't. They have a distinct advantage there and used it to dominate the line. Wisconsin figured it out in about 10 plays, it took Penn St a half to.
This is horrible. The way they're playing tonight this is not the #2 team in the nation. The defense is championship caliber but not the offense.
Can coaches be benched? Beck and Warriner need to be benched for the 1st half of games. They're awesome in 2nd halves but pitiful in the 1st.
That is insinuating that Wisconsin doesn't beat the winner of the game in the B1G championship. They played both teams very well and could've beaten both. If that happens it's a crap shoot where the teams land in bowl games.
Raekwon is playing just fine. Yes, his tackle numbers are lower but he's still around the ball every play. The other guys on that defense are playing great. Baker had 13 tackles and the line is shredding opposing o lines. He made a ton of tackles last year because it was basically all him on the 2nd level. Lee was in coverage responsibility and Perry was usually on blitzes. This year we have solid secondary play man to man which leaves all 3 linebackers to share that 2nd level responsibility and it's more evenly distributed.
I should've clarified a little better. I meant for any job not just Purdue. Purdue just got the idea going since they're already looking at 4 of our assistant coaches.

From what I see with Barrett he waits until his man breaks open throw it. He doesn't have the arm to get away with that. I've always heard it said you throw it when your man gets even with the defender. JT waits til his man has space. He's just got to throw it sooner.
I think there were a lot of calls missed both ways. I do have a officiating question though. Didn't they change the rule so if you stiff arm someone you can't grab their facemask? I saw Clement do it a few times and it had me thinking.
