We haven't talked a lot about the upcoming Purdue game this week. While we will frequently discuss the opposing team in detail, we haven't really done that this week. And honestly, it's because I have no idea what to expect or what to think. After last week's showing, I would not be surprised by anything.
With that, here's a few links and predications from around the web:
Matt Hinton excepts a big game from the Ducks and especially Jeremiah Masoli. If not, well, let's just not talk about it. Purdue blog Boiled Sports is taking the opposite view of BoilerTMill from HammerAndRails, and all 3 writers are predicting a Purdue loss. Lastly, Moseley predicts a big win for the Ducks, with a strong showing from the Oregon defense.
- If you're going to be at the game, Moseley has some info on getting to Autzen. For you tailgaters, make sure you know the alcohol rules around Autzen, which are to be strongly enforced. Lastly, KVAL has more gameday info for you.
- In a bit of bad news, Oregon commit and Sheldon high player Curtis White re-injured his shoulder last night. He could be out a few weeks, or the whole season if he undergoes surgery.
In national college football, I'm planning watching Michigan-Notre Dame this afternoon (GO BLUE!) and we have some big Pac-10 road matchups with Stanford, UCLA, and USC all playing big matchups accross the nation. Consider this your place to discuss all things football related before kickoff this evening. GO DUCKS!
