Before last weekend, hopes were up and up about the Purdue football team within Boiler Nation. But, after getting homered in Notre Dame Stadium, falling victim to the "Luck of the Irish" and losing Robert Marve to yet another ACL tear, it is no surprise that these high hopes are starting to plummet.
However, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. For Purdue, that light comes in the form of playing Eastern Michigan, a MAC team, at home this weekend. Despite a salty loss and an epic escape by Big Ten teams against the MAC in Week 1, Purdue is still expected to bring the wood this Saturday and continue to amass an impressive 2012 season, period. If they don't, Lord help us all.
In the meantime though, here is the vital information about Eastern Michigan and Saturday's game.
