Ole Miss has murderers row coming up. We now have to play Arkansas, Georgia, and Florida, plus USER games with Vandy (Sox) and Miss St. (uagrad)! I need to steal two wins out of this to go bowling. Yikes.
If there's ever been a stretch where I need some help from my lucky mittens, it's right now.
Haha that picture is hilarious
Damn you, lucky mittens!!
The Hogs run over, around, and through Ole Miss as they wax our ass in Fayetteville 45-24. Dennis Johnson had over 200 yards rushing, and it felt like all of them were in the first quarter. He broke two 50+ TD runs early and the Arkansas D kept our running game stalled.
The true killer for us was QB Randall Mackey nursing a sore something. He couldn't throw a bullet pass tosave his life. Everything floated like a screen pass, whether it really was a screen, a slant, or even a post. Luckily, their DBs didn't go pick happy, but they got to a lot of balls. Awful, awful game.
Maybe some home cooking will do us good.
Hoosiers Drop 5th StraightComeback Falls Short Indiana went on the road this week to face Illinois, and by halftime the Fighting Illini had been spotted a 31 - 7 lead. The Hoosiers looked to be headed for a blow out loss to their fellow Big Ten cellar dwellers, but Indiana dominated the 2nd half with three unanswered touchdowns to give them a chance at the end. New starting QB Cameron Coffman played a great game going 15/21 for 297 yards, 3 TDs, and only 1 pick. Next week, it doesn't get any easier as Indiana will host #17 Iowa.
Minneapolis, Minn. - The No. 17 Purdue Boilermakers continued their winning ways, picking up their fourth straight Big Ten victory with a 30-20 win at Minnesota. Purdue WR Raheem Mostert stole the day with four receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown and a 105-yard kickoff return for a TD that helped Purdue limit the damage from Minnesota.
The Gophers, despite their sub-.500 Big Ten record, controlled most of the game and took a 20-17 lead into the fourth quarter. Purdue, looking for big plays to stay in the game, got several of them from Mostert.
The first was in the second quarter responding from a Minnesota score. Mostert took the kickoff back into Minnesota territory and cut the Boilermakers deficit before halftime. Then in the third quarter, Mostert answered another Gophers score with a 105-yard kickoff return for a TD. Despite the big special teams plays, Purdue still found themselves trailing headed into the fourth quarter.
That's when Mostert made his presence known on offense. The sophomore caught a hitch, slipped a tackle, and beat the safety down the sideline for a 42-yard TD. The play gave Purdue their first lead of the game, one they would not relinquish.
QB Caleb TerBush and the Boilermakers really struggled on offense for the first time in weeks. Star RB Ralph Bolden was limited to just 26 yards on nine carries, his lowest output in a full game since the beating Purdue suffered in South Bend. TerBush also struggled, completing just 15 of his 26 passes for 233 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. The usually efficient TerBush was rattled by Minnesota's pressure from their front four for most of the evening.
The win puts Purdue at 4-0 and atop the Big Ten Leaders division with a two game cushion over the nearest competitor, Penn State. The Boilermakers host Penn State next week and a win would almost assuredly put them in the Big Ten Championship Game in early December.
