During his time at Purdue Ryan was very fun to watch. He left with a lot of records, but he really seemed to do it the right way as well. How he flew under the radar during the recruiting process is a great reason why I don’t follow recruiting. One of the best defensive ends ever at Purdue was not really highly thought of as a recruit. He was highly thought of when he left though as he was drafted 16th overall by the Washington Redskins tonight. It will be fun to watch him represent Purdue well in the NFL. Continue reading
I wasn’t at the spring game very long today. The Boiler baseball team was playing a great game at Lambert, and the football game is not my type of event. I don’t like All Star, All Pro, or other games that have no meaning. I walked into the stadium just in time to witness the Carson Wiggs show right before the half. He was nailing field goal after field goal culminating with a 67 yarder that sent the fans into a frenzy. The rest of the time that I was in Ross Ade today was spent watching the former players interact with the crowd. Mike Alstott was really bombarded with autograph and picture requests, but he signed everyone. He even looked happy to do it. Some great Boilers from the past were back today, but I must have missed Bob Greise who was supposed to be there. Here are some of the pictures from my time at the game today, and I think I even have one of game action thrown in. Continue reading
Here are the pictures from the game Tuesday night finally
During the football season I had a post called game notes every week for whatever game I was attending. Since Purdue is not in a bowl this year I will put out the game notes for games that I won’t be attending. I wanted to post this to finalize my picks for the regular season. I have a sheet of paper with my picks that has just been sitting around for almost a month. It is time to get rid of that paper. I won’t dwell too much on the season in this post. I plan to look back on the Purdue season when the sting from the loss to Indiana wears off. For now let’s just see how I did with my picks this season. Continue reading
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.
Since it was the last game in a Purdue uniform for some of the seniors I decided to make this photo gallery a little bit bigger. Today is part one with pictures from the first half of the Saturday’s contest. Tomorrow I will post the second half photo gallery.
