    Gives them a lot to work on in practice, so that's something.

    Ricardo Allen is a stud. Could be first team all big ten. Bolden looked good and Wigs is money if they need a huge kick.

    Hopefully they build off the win. This team should be 3-0 come time for ND

    Kyle Adams made the Bears beating out long time vet Dez Clark. Plain and simple Adams out played him. The Bears had 5 UDFA make the team that is an insane number. I am happy the Bears made the right decision keeping Adams he played his *** off and earned the job.

    It was not a pretty win, but for those of us at the game...we will take it. They darn well better have won after we baked out there for 4 hours or so.

    Oh and Bolden looked pretty good, as did Allen sans the fumble. I though TerBush was good on the last drive, hopefully that continues.

    Our defense looked bad at times particularly on 3rd downs, pass plays, and runs to the perimeter, we are really going to have to work on this if we want to be close to making a bowl game this year...

    Only 3rd downs, pass plays, and outside runs? That's not bad...

    On the bright side, Bolden looked pretty awesome, definitely back to top form. Sure it was against MTSU (who was a bowl team, barely, but still), but behind what looked like a pretty lackluster line 17/120 was pretty impressive. Shavers looked pretty solid too.

    Wish Hope & Co'd use a Tressel-esque gameplan and turn us into a running team.

    WTF... thats all I can say. had a feeling we were going to miss it, didn't think it would get blocked though... for some reason it just seemed rushed and unorganized even though we had a lot of time and were lined up correctly... our defense is bad, especially against the pass, we will need to make changes soon, or MTSU could be the only game that we win all year.

    Go through active NFL rosters, there's PLENTY of Purdue talent on them, the majority of them starters. In the NFL. Granted, the vast amount of them are either QBs or DE/OLBs, but the talent is there and has been there. I don't even dislike Hope's recruiting, I haven't looked it up but I'd imagine he's doing just as well there as Tiller did and with even less to get those guys to WL on. Not that either was pulling major coups in that area, unless you count guys that never saw the field for Tiller.

    Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, if Hope's not fired at season's end and Kevin Sumlin's not offered the job then I'm ready to call for Burke to be replaced. It's a lot like IU with Lynch, I genuinely like Hope, think he has the best interests for his players and the school in mind at all times, he just isn't good enough a coach. I'm not asking for double digit wins and Rose Bowl contention, just yearly bowls. There's absolutely no reason for ANY Big Ten school to not expect that from their coach.

    Just for reference:

    Some 18 former Purdue football players are on NFL rosters as the 2011 season opens this week. Sixteen different clubs have Boilermaker alums; the New England Patriots and San Diego Chargers are the only teams with more than one.

    Newcomers: Two Boilermakers who completed their eligibility last season are active - linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, the Washington Redskins' first-round draft pick, and tight end Kyle Adams, who made the Chicago Bears roster as an undrafted free agent.

    New Places: Two former Purdue defensive standouts are with two teams - defensive end Ray Edwards signed with the Atlanta Falcons after spending the first five seasons of his career with the Minnesota Vikings, and safety Bernard Pollard hooked up with the Baltimore Ravens. Pollard previously played with the Kansas City Chiefs (2006-08) and Houston Texans (2009-10).

    Cradle of Quarterbacks: Drew Brees begins his sixth season with the New Orleans Saints, while Kyle Orton and Curtis Painter are in their third season with the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts.

    Den of Defensive Ends: No fewer than six former defensive ends are with NFL clubs: Cliff Avril (Detroit Lions), Edwards, Kerrigan, Rob Ninkovich (New England), Shaun Phillips (San Diego) and Anthony Spencer (Dallas Cowboys). Kerrigan, Ninkovich, Phillips and Spencer now each play linebacker. Meanwhile, two former defensive tackles - Ryan Baker and Mike Neal - now are ends with the Miami Dolphins and Green Bay Packers.

    O Line Vets: Tackle Matt Light enters his 11th season with the New England, center Nick Hardwick his ninth season with San Diego, guard-center Uche Nwaneri his fifth season with the Jacksonville Jaguars and tackle Mike Otto his fifth season with the Tennessee Titans.

    Former First Rounders: The Boilermakers have had three first-round draft picks in the past five seasons: Spencer with Dallas in 2007, tight end Dustin Keller with the New York Jets in 2008 and Kerrigan with Washington in 2011.
