I apologize that I will be late in getting to Ross-Ade today. My son has his final soccer game at 10:30am in Indy, so I will be hustling up to make it by the end of the first quarter. This one is an intriguing game because neither team looked good last week, both have had injuries to key playmakers offensively, and both have been pretty good defensively.

We are owed one by the football gods, however, after getting absolutely and blatantly robbed in Minneapolis last season on the “pass interference” call. That robbed Purdue of a rightful victory.

We also likely won’t know until the first offensive series if we get Jack Plummer or Aidan O’Connell. Both are capable quarterbacks that have had success in the past. Whoever starts will need to be better than last week in order to have a chance to win.

Finally, let’s all offer up a big congratulations to former writer Juan Crespo, who is getting married today up in Ann Arbor! Leave your congratulations/heckle him in the live feed:

At least someone from Purdue will get a ring this football season.

Let’s get to 4-1 and get to the bye week to heal up.
