It is no secret that Purdue got absolutely drilled today. Nothing really went right as even Akeem Shavers hurt his knee after having the best game of anyone. Brandon Cottom and Tommie Thomas each caught touchdown passes from Robert Marve, but they were long after the game was decided and served only to prevent an ugly loss from being a brutal shutout.
it was the final game for a group of seniors that went out in an absolutely brutal way. No one wants to lose like that in any game, but when only two or three guys have even a remote shot at the NFL it makes their final game worse.
So, I made a video thanking most of them by name. We will miss the talents of Kawann Short and Josh Johnson, the heart of guys like Robert Marve, and the the way that seniors like Tommie Thomas and Nnamdi Ezenwa stuck through little playing time in four years to finally see the field as seniors.
