Champs Sports Bowl Recap

Purdue was upended by the Terrapins of Maryland last night in the Champs Sports Bowl 24-7. Stats here and pics here. Purdue never got into an offensive rhythm and was thoroughly dominated on both sides of the ball. For Purdue fans, this is more of the same. Another bowl game, another slow start, another scoreless first quarter, another early deficit, another loss. This game recap post will be half-ass, because that's exactly the kind of effort the Boilers gave last night.

WHAT PURDUE DID WELL
Celebrate routine tackles made on defense on 10+ yard runs by Lance Ball and Keon Lattimore. Make mediocre QB Sam Hollenbach look like an All-American.

WHAT PURDUE DID POORLY
Show up.

MOMENT OF THE GAME
Maryland CB Josh Wilson showing his jersey to the camera yelling, "Dats da truuff!!" while a pre-recorded video of him at bottom of the screen showed him talking about how important academics are to him.
