This one might be a bit heavy, but it was a great game to watch so I put a few extra pictures in. Of course many of them are from down on the field which I don’t normally get to do. Even the next day I am still excited about the way that it ended. I hope that a great game like this translates into a nice crowd next week. Here are some of the pictures that I liked from this weeks game:
As I said in the previous post I shot entirely in manual mode again today. It may have cost me a couple pictures, but overall I think the end result was better. The great weather combined with a great result made for a good day shooting. Here are a few pictures that I liked from my day.
Although the second half did not turn out as I would have hoped here are the pictures from the final two plus quarters of Saturday’s game.
Once again a busy week has prevented me from putting together the wrap that I had started. This is more to get my picks from last week out of the way so that this week’s preview can be a little shorter. Purdue pulled off the upset of Wisconsin if you only count first half scores, or scores not associated with turnovers. Of course both of those count so the Boilers still need two wins to become bowl eligible. Last week I talked about how this week’s picks would bring me to 100 on the season. I went 7-3 for the week to bring me to 82-18. I can even do that math being an OLS major. Each week I feel that I have been doing okay, but I would like to be a bit higher than 82%. That being said I have not been slacking when it comes to picking the games outside of the Big Ten Conference. Two of my losses last week were in tough SEC games. I guess I have to do a bit more homework before I do my picks. Of course a little luck would not hurt. Here is how I did last week (as usual the actual score is in parenthesis): Continue reading
Well this post will be tough. The Boilers have lost the last two games by a combined 93-10. They have lost their last two to the Badgers by a combined score of 61-3. That does not inspire great confidence in me as I prepare to head down to West Lafayette. A lot of people are talking about how we were in a similar situation last season with #7 Ohio State coming into town. This is not the same situation. The Purdue team last season had lost some tight games in their tailspin. This team has gotten their butts kicked the last two games, and are showing no signs of coming out of it. Continue reading
