What Did We Learn - Purdue

Recommended Posts

Rahmir has appeared in 3 games, his last two he played a total of 3 plays no touches

Hickman appears on offense today, his second game,  targeted on some kind of ill fated screen attempt and then never seen again

NPG 3 games, special teams mostly 

Myles Farmer, see NPG

D Chase 3 games, 1 catch

J Green, one game

 

This isn’t something learned from this game for myself, but this staff really is not using the 4 game redshirt rule to it’s or any players advantage and best interest

A great opportunity to see what the guys can do in real games against real competition and they let a guy get a play here and play there.....just pi$$ poor management IMHO.  Bowing an opportunity to get experience and develop guys....Especially with the whole culture and buy in BS...

But I was asking myself: how bad would it really be for Purdue to win? All my other sports instincts were rooting for the injured underdog with more heart and better coaching smarts. 

I was thinking it's going to be bad to lose this one and we've got to pull it out.  I also found myself admiring Purdue for their effort.  I think the scouting report is out on Nebraska and it's straight out of the movie "The Hustler"- stick with them, they're losers.  We can talk about offense, defense and coaching but it's not going to change the truth.  We lost because Purdue wanted the win more than us.  It's that simple.

Wrap up just a couple of those tackles and we win this one.  I just don't understand why it takes contact from four different players to bring down one RB or baby faced QB?  This would appear to me to be an easy fix.

Yeah- this one doesn't hurt near as bad as I thought it would.  Hats off to them, love the effort and they deserved it.

Watching UFC when he was there, they were crazy good, complex O like Oregon.  Attacked the edge with mismatches.  Playmakers on D.  It looked not very much like what we see out of same coaches at Lincoln.  Maybe they have "dumbed it down"... no faith in players?

Maybe substandard players make any scheme look stupid?

I remember flipping between Riley and UCF and thinking how much moee stupid the NU offense was.... Now Frost is here and it still looks stupid...what changed, what stayed the same?

Bo says hi

Is it funny how no one says "I wish we hadn't fired Bo."  But I will, I'm glad Bo is no longer in Lincoln

Well thats one thing and I wont begrudge you that, but just in terms of putting a respectable team on the field, best we've had since 2003 so far...

I guess that's just the way I roll.  I want the whole package- someone that's a good coach and respectable.  Plus, he was going to die on the sidelines.

Purdue lost their only good rb before the season, haven't run on anyone all season, our crappy defense managed to bring their run game to life.

This same coaching staff so brilliantly gameplaned for Auburn in their bowl game before they came. How were they able to scout an SEC team so well, while working for two schools, when they seem genuinely surprised at every single B1G team they play.

have you ever thought about the word "disgruntled" In order to be disgruntled wouldn't someone first have to gruntled or engruntled?  And if that was the opposite of disgruntled it would be a good thing?  Like Barry was so gruntled at the post office, that he gave out homemade brownies and chatted up everyone he saw and didn't fart on a single package all day..

Nebraska once again makes a toothless opponent look like world beaters. Our coaches call offensive plays which are counter to what every other college team uses to beat Purdue. Purdue gave up like 300+ yards per game in rushing. Husker coaches are too cute to do that and went pass happy. For once being a hard nosed QB, Frost is anything but that as a coach these days.
