Purdue vs. Auburn: How to Watch and Game Thread


It's the only picture for sauce I could find.

This is an odd revenge game that the fates of the schedule have given us. If Purdue were to play Nevada next year there would be no ill will towards Kendall Stephens. If we played IPFW this year we definitely would not be hating on Bryson Scott (plus we would probably win the game). Against Notre Dame a few years ago when we plays Scott Martin it was strange because he had been gone so long and had been through so many injuries that he got a 6th year and no one on that Purdue team had ever played with him.

Tonight is Ronnie Johnson though. Only Basil Smotherman and Jon McKeeman played with him at Purdue, but Johnson was pretty much a raging dick about the whole thing and started things with his sauce comments, so it is nice to see him on the other sideline.
