Are You Not Entertained? Purdue

Written November 4th, 2013 by Gary Russell II

There was no bad luck this time around as the Buckeyes pounded the Boilermakers 56-0……….but did our wishes have the same good luck?  Let’s check it out:

Early And Often

Joseph

  1. Another Statement Win - Big plays, Big Stops on defense, and a performance that keeps the Buckeye in the National Championship talks.  An absolutely huge statement made with a 56-0 win.
  2. Boiled Up - I want to see two straight weeks of freshman quarterback frustration. How about 2 early turnovers to put this game away for good.  A pick 6 on the second play of the game set the tone for the Boilermakers frustrations.
  3. More Wilson - Man is that kid fast! I hope to see a heavy dose of him in the running and passing game.  Only 23 yards rushing but it was from a lack of effort in getting him the ball.
  4. Double Tight – I have Lots of love for our big play tight ends. Id love to see one of the two hit paydirt Saturday.   Hello Heuerman……116 yards and a TD!

MaliBuckeye

  1. Exorcism- Ross-Ade Stadium is a house of horrors for Ohio State; the Buckeyes are winless there in their past two visits.  Time to cleanse those demons…  Consider the exorcism complete!
  2. Tricks And Treats- While I believe that Ohio State’s offense can manage yardage against the Boilers running pretty basic aspects of their playbook, it would be interesting to see some “wrinkles” that the last three opponents will need to spend time preparing for.  How about the use of a Tight End for a wrinkle????
  3. Reap The Harvest- Still no defensive score other than Bosa’s “Flop 6″ against Northwestern? They’re ripe for the picking…  It only took two plays to make this come true thanks to Doran Grant.
  4. World War Z- Let’s get the young Bucks involved early and often… ‘Zeke needs a TD or two to make up for the one he had taken away last week.  Zeke got his TD……although it came through the air, it still counts!
  5. Things That Don’t Jump In The Night (or day)- Two false starts last week, including one on a freaking extra point. C’mon, man!  Finally got this one! Read More

tBBC Game Preview: Purdue Boilermakers

Introduction

Your hat isn’t this cool

The #4 Ohio State Buckeyes (8-0, 4-0) visit the Purdue Boilermakers (1-6, 0-3) for a 12-noon kickoff in Ross-Ade Stadium. Ohio State comes off an impressive beat down of Penn State 63-14, while Purdue comes off a bye week. Penn State had a bye week to prepare for the Buckeyes, and we saw how that turned out. I expect something similar this week.

Purdue is enduring a rebuilding year after showing Danny Hope the door. First year coach Darrell Hazell, who guided Kent State to an 11-2 record last year, is likely to see that record reversed this year. As you may remember, Hazell was formerly on Jim Tressel’s staff and played his college ball at Muskingum University/College.

Purdue brings a not-that-good defense, 34.4 points against, 106th in the country, and an even worse offense, 13.1 points per game, good for 122nd (out of 125 teams) in the nation. Their quarterbacking has been split by early season starter Senior Rob Henry and current starter, freshman Danny Etling. Both QB’s are around 5.9 yards per attempt (not good at all) and have a QB rating of 100’ish. By comparison, Miller/Guiton average 8 yards per attempt and a combined QB rating of 168’ish. Big difference. This lack of performance might be a confidence booster, coming off their good performance against PSU. Read More
