Live Blog: Notre Dame vs. Purdue

While it’s hardly the top billing of the evening, the Fighting Irish have a chance to make a primetime statement, three weeks after failing to do so with all eyes watching.

Notre Dame heads down to West Lafayette, taking on an undermanned Purdue squad that doesn’t have much of a shot on paper against a more talented Irish team.

That said, if Notre Dame played their games on paper, they’d likely be undefeated. We’ve spent four weeks talking about the turnovers and miscues that cost the Irish two games. Now it’s up to Tommy Rees and the offense to eliminate them and the defense to add forcing turnovers to their repertoire.

As always, we’ll be here for the live blog. Pull up a seat, turn on the TV and join us for a few hours of frustration, group therapy, torture, fun.

    Finally, somewhat enjoyable game. I love how the Purdont suddenly looks like notre dame and we don’t look like our selves tonight….. Penalties, high throws, dropped balls…take that purdont!!! Enjoy!

    We are starting to play down to their level again….cmon guys, show some killer instinct tonight, please. Its focking Paaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrdddddddddddddddddddddddddduuuuuuuuuuuuddddddd for christ sakes!

    Our Special teams(ALL FACETS) really isn’t “special” at all by any stretch. Please put them back on the little yellow bus and send them back to south bend STAT. We don’t need them tonight. I’d fire the special teams coach in a heartbeat. This is game #4 now. I put all the blame on the special teams coach Mike Elston. You should know better by now.

    Gary Gray Succcckkkkks! I’ve seen them throw to his direction couple times on deep balls and he had his back turned chasing the receiver down as usual. I am going to take away the “r” from his name til he makes a focking play on a ball and call him Gay Gay. Cmon Gay Gay, go make a play on a ball/s, would ya?

    Is it just me or whenever we get Floyd going, he’s the only one that gets going. I see they’re trying to get the ball to Riddick and Jones as well but it seems whenever Floyd gets going, the other receivers fall in deep sleep.

    For those of you wondering what happened to Stephon Tuitt:

    “Defensive end Stephon Tuitt did not travel for Saturday’s game due to a violation of team policies, according to the school.He is one of the cornerstone pieces of the current freshman class for the Irish, ranked the No. 22 prospect nationally in the Class of 2011 by Tuitt was on the official travel roster given by the team to Notre Dame’s media relations staff on Thursday, and only Friday was it apparent that he would not make the trip.
    A Notre Dame spokesman had no additional comment and said Irish coachBrian Kelly would address the matter after the game.”

    WTF…DRRRAAAAAMMMMAAAA, jesus christ, just what we needed. I would have bet on Aaron Lynch as trouble maker not Tuitt. I hope we don’t have Abraham Elam Jr on the team, god knows we already have one on our team. 2 is 2 too many.
