It’s Bucket week with a bowl game on the line! In the past 5 games Purdue has scored 49, 13, 38, 10, and 44. Using this alternating strategy, they should only score about 2 touchdowns or less this week. #analysis #markitdown
Indiana made it a game for most of 60 minutes, made a bunch of Michigan fans mad on Twitter, and predictably couldn’t hold onto the improbable victory. Let’s recap!
Going into the Maryland game, if you had asked most IU fans to name the defense’s biggest weakness, I suspect most of them would have pointed to a secondary that struggles against downfield passing or an inconsistent pass rush. Against the Terrapins, however, an additional weakness came to the fore: tackling.
I’m just here to fulfill the over/under obligations in my lucrative contact with PJP. While it is very unlikely that Indiana wins this week, or possibly even stays within striking distance, let these over/unders serve as an additional reason to watch the game.
It wasn’t always pretty but the oblong ball fell Indiana’s way a couple times (after the Penn State game, IU was due) and Indiana held on for victory #5. The Hoosiers will probably need to play better to beat Purdue (and a LOT, LOT better to beat, or come close to beating, Michigan) but a win is a win and the postseason dream is still alive.
