Boilermakings For 4/16

Boilermakings are a little late today because of work computer issues. Fortunately, the benefit of working 2 blocks from home means I can run home and get my laptop when I get fed up from working with a crappy backup work computer. I'll have more observations on the Spring game once I am allowed to watch it on Big Ten Network (pending, according to their schedule. The good news is that you can watch the Purdue-Ohio State game from 2009 at 5pm tomorrow as part of the Big Ten's Greatest Games series. Let's pretend it is the Spring Game!

Meanwhile, here are some links. Enjoy!
