Another Monday, another week. Grab your coffee and let’s get right to it. Before we begin, I want to wish a (some posthumously) happy birthday to:
I’m sure there are others, but we need to move on.
Spring Practice began with a couple practices this week. Mali has some (Silver Bullet) points on it. The biggest take-away for me is that after the first day, Urban didn’t think the team looked like a “clown show”. Which he did last year, prior to the team going 12-0. If things have changed that much, I’m somewhat optimistic about this year.
The other item that caught my eye, was some prose by a fellow Big Ten blogger. He had little regard for OSU fans/commentators expressing their relief that Bollman left Purdue to take a better position at MSU. Evidently the source of his disregard is that “we (and he wasn’t clear if “we” were his fellow front pagers, Purdue fan base in general, etc.) don’t like Ohio State a whole bunch.” And then he goes on from there..
And, it took him 330 words so say that he didn’t care. Seriously. I get the (probably Freudian) antipathy towards All Things Ohio State. However, regarding the Purdue coaching staff, they do need to acknowledge their debts to Ohio State (Marcus Freeman), Muskingum University (Jon Heacock, brother of Jim) and both schools (Darrell Hazell).
