It is finally game day in West Lafayette, and much to the chagrin of Morgan Burke we are NOT kicking off at noon. A nice 3:30 kickoff is a good balance for alums that have to drive like me. We don't have to rush in the morning and we can still find a nice place local to watch the night games.
I am sitting in my usual seats of section 128, row 41 seats 10 and 11. Myles is on location in the press box. Other writers are scattered about the crowd.
Speaking of other writers, in a new tradition here at the site I am asking the other contributors to add a paragraph or two on what they think will happen in the game. I'll try to share this no later than the game's Open Thread this week. So, if you're not in the dampness that is Ross-Ade today, kick back, crack open a cold one, and enjoy the Boilers on BTN.
With the forecast for today looking bleak, I am cheering for the ligaments of the Boilers and the Colonels alike. A non-noon start is relegated to a status of being nearly untailgateable. Isaac is the star of the show, and the Boilers win a slopfest 31-10.
