Nebraska Husks Purdue in a 44-7 Blowout

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Purdue's struggles continue as they fall to 1-5.

The drinking starts earlier and earlier on Saturdays these days.

Purdue has been outscored this year 233-86 and that spread did nothing but grow today thanks to a 44-7 shellacking at the hands of the Cornhuskers. The Purdue defense, now playing two former failed experiments at quarterback, gave up 251 yards on the ground (435 total) while the only thing saving the offense from a goose egg was a late Etling to Yancey connection.

What made today’s loss sting just a little bit more was the performance of former Hamilton Southeastern standout and Purdue commit Randy Gregory. Gregory picked up two sacks and a fumble recovery just days after this (true) shot at Purdue’s Ross-Ade Stadium:

This team is young and players like David Yancey give some hope to the program. Nobody realistically expected the Boilers to have anything but a rebuilding year, but I don’t think anyone thought it’d be this bad. Today’s loss was filled with more dumb mistakes, poor run defense, missed tackles, dropped balls, and even a failed pitch between Etling and Dalyn Dawkins. Constant three and outs forced the defense on the field all day, and the defensive unit couldn't get themselves off it. One day in the future, one has to think Purdue’s young talent will put it all together and perform like we hope they can. Until then, we’re going to be in for a lot more losses like this.
