      Just try to avoid getting dropped off in Delphi, IN if hitch hiking between South Bend and West Lafayette. Especially on a Sunday morning on the return run/thumb. A long but humorous story that I might relate to bore the shit out of the Board.

            Hoping doesn't change the fact that it's going to be a blowout.

              Is ND going to score 80 points?

              Purdue is averaging 44 points per game. That's the NCAA's #11 scoring offense. 10 points more per game than ND.

              PU is averaging 493 yds/game. 7 yds/game less than ND.

              PU's attack is balanced: 51% Run, 49% Pass.

              PU's RB Ralph Bolden is the #1 rusher in the nation with 178 yds/game. That's 12 yds/game more than ND has as a TEAM.

              PU's Defense gives up 424 yds/game about 55 yds/game more than ND's.

              PU is 1-1 with a 21 point win in the opener over Toledo 42-31 and a 2 point loss to Oregon on the road 38-36.

              Their schedule strength has been comparable to ND's.

                Next week's opponent PU got their vaunted running attack stuffed in a loss to the Mac's NIU.

                N. Illinois 28, Purdue 21

Illinois 28, Purdue 21. UPDATES with game details.-->WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -Me'co Brown ran for 150 yards, and Northern Illinois beat Purdue 28-21 Saturday for its first victory against a Big Ten school since 1988.
                Chad Spann rushed for 80 yards and two touchdowns for the Huskies (2-1).
                Northern Illinois, a Mid-American Conference school, entered the game 1-32-1 all time against the Big Ten.
                Purdue quarterback Joey Elliott passed for 188 yards and ran for 68 yards and two touchdowns. But the Huskies held Ralph Bolden, the nation's leading rusher after two games, to 64 yards.
                Purdue (1-2) looked sluggish one week after taking Oregon to the limit in a 38-36 loss. The Huskies outgained the Boilermakers 454 yards to 335 and kept the ball for 41:40.
                Purdue trailed 28-21 in the fourth quarter and expected to get the ball back with about 3:30 left after forcing Northern Illinois into a fourth down, but the Huskies resorted to trickery. Justin Anderson took a direct snap on a fake punt 11 yards for a first down. NIU eventually punted but didn't leave Purdue enough time to mount a threat.

                  Purdue will still put up 30 points on us...let's hope we can score at least 31.


                  ps

                  I'm putting all the V-bucks in on this game...why? because i never learn.

                      I believe this game is at 8 pm so ya might want to change that part. Its not a very easy place to play. I'm thinking Notre Dame 37 Purdue 36.

                            I would say this game would be a blowout, like when Quinner lit em up a few years back. But with floyd gone, and Jimmys struggles on the road, this is another game that scares me and will make my blood pressure rise again.

                              night game on the road with rabid fans wanting a piece of ND. this w/b another war b/c purdue will bring their best and i'm sure the qb's, rb's and wr's will have the games of their lives like every other ND opponent does. we need to come ready and willing to lay the wood.

                                    PU's RB Ralph Bolden was leading the nation in rushing with something like 179 yds/game. Yesterday NIU held him to 60 some yds and Bolden dropped to #2 NCAA Leading Rusher with 140 yds/game.

                                    Meanwhile ND allows 149 ypg rushing.

                                    Nevada's Vai Taua averages 104 ypg and Michigan's Carlos Brown averages 78 ypg by comparison. Neither Kaepernick nor Forcier are listed in the Top 100 rushers. Kaepernick is averaging 31 ypg and Forcier 37. MSU's Calton Ray and Larry Caper average 48 and 39 ypg.

                                                Man I've been doing wayyyyy too much of that.

                                                I can't sleep the night before games so that makes me look pretty psychotic pacing around scaring my girlfriend.

                                                    Right On! My liver doesn't appreciate my pacing to the fridge for yet another beer every 10 minutes or so. Nor do my neighbors appreciate my disrupting their son's backyard 3rd birthday party when I bellow at the TV ... over the idiocy of the officials, the coaching staff or the players.

                                                    I think I popped a balloon or two with my high volume, rude and "pointed" commentary.

                                                    Maybe they'll be willing to speak to me after I slip a case of beer or two onto their back porch. And it cools off enough for me to close my windows.

                                                      I'm excited for this one. We'll get to see a lot of upcoming players like ShaqE.

                                                      Plus we'll have to run more, which we've done great at and not enough of in my opinion.

                                                      Are we bringing Big East officials or do we have to suffer with Big Ten officials again?

                                                      PU stinky- 17, ND-32......Please show up D and Tenuta stop blitzing the outsides every time they're ramming it up our esophagus!

                                                      interesting:
                                                      ND score vs. UN - 35
                                                      ND score vs. UM - 34
                                                      ND score vs. MS - 33

                                                        Slightly eerie Domer. I'll stick with the call at 32 points.

                                                          if we can shut down PU's run game we should be good. We'll see if our DL show's up. If not PU rb's will be running all day.

                                                            PU will definitely score points against the Irish! On the other side (barring Jimmy isn't hurting too bad), the Irish should have an offensive field day against PU. I could see a 37-27 game coming about. Irish win of course. If not, I'm going back into that 3-day drinking coma I had after the loss to scUM. Damn, I hate those bastards!!!

                                                              THEY MUST WIN!

                                                                Clausen is expected to play Saturday at Purdue.

Under the Charlie Weis era Notre Dame always plays good against Purdue. Look at 07, the worst team ever fielded by Notre Dame put up 3 second half touchdowns on them and only lost by 14. 05 at their place at night we killed them, 06 we killed them, and 08 we killed them. No reason anything different should happen here

Lets see if Floyd leaves too much to overcome. I think Tate plays great from here on out. The guy is electric and has got the old ND attitide. This game scares me.
                                                                            Project ahead when you think of what university you want to bring your family to as an alum. If it isnt Notre Dame then you should go to another school-from a subway alumni

                                                                              If we run it decently like we have been doing - their LBs start creeping up to stuff the run - Rudolf starts going wide open down the middle of the field, and he is REAL tough to bring down.

                                                                              And all that does is open up Golden and ShaqE on the outside.

                                                                              I like our chances a whole lot, the D just HAS to step it up here soon don't you think?

                                                                                  Ditto! I don't foresee the winner w/ less than 30+ pts. in this game.

Purdue will look to control the clock and their balance on offense will give us headaches. I see a close hard fought win. 38-31 type game. Big plays will be the difference. We still have playmakers. Allen, Gray, Tate, Rudolph and Clausen will come up big!!

                                                                                              WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - The Big Ten has suspended Purdue offensive guard Zach Reckman for Saturday's game against Notre Dame after it reviewed Reckman's late hit at the end of the Northern Illinois game.

                                                                                              Reckman dropped a right forearm on NIU's Sean Progar after Progar recovered a fumble and slid to end Purdue's final desperation play in the Huskies' 28-21 win. NIU's Alex Kube immediately pushed Reckman off Progar, but the situation did not escalate.

                                                                                              Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said in a statement that Reckman's actions were unacceptable and could have triggered a larger incident. Purdue coach Danny Hope said in a statement that Reckman made a mistake, and the team would have to live with the Big Ten's decision.

After Mouton was suspended by the Big 10 for punching Eric Olsen, Rodriquez opined that he hoped the Big 10 took the same action for other players that did the same. They did with Reckman.

                                                                                                  After back-to-back shootouts against Michigan and Michigan State, Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis doesn't want another against Purdue.
                                                                                                  "We don't want to be playing in a game where we're trying to win 35-34 every week," he said.
                                                                                                  Weis has good reason for wanting to avoid shootouts. The Fighting Irish (2-1) are 28-5 under Weis when holding opponents to 29 points or fewer, a winning percentage of .848. That would be better than Ara Parseghian's career winning percentage of .836 (95-17-4) and close to Frank Leahy's mark of .855 (87-11-9).
                                                                                                  Unfortunately for Weis, though, Notre Dame's 33-30 win over the Spartans on Saturday was just his third victory in 20 tries when an opponent scores 30 points or more. Those 20 games of surrendering 30 or more also is the most of any coach in Notre Dame history. ...

The worst season was his first season at Georgia Tech in 2002, when the Yellow Jackets were 50th in the nation at 356 yards a game.

They are 96th in the nation in total defense, giving up 398 yards a game, including 149 yards a game against the run and 249 against the pass.
                                                                                                  ...

It would be good to start against Purdue, which is averaging 440 yards and 36 points a game.

Northern Illinois pounded the ball inside to produce Me’co Brown’s 150-yard game.
