I’m rather proud of myself. For the first time in a long time I got the script for Beonard’s Losers written by Sunday night. That’s a good thing, since I’ve included a Thursday game into the mix this time. Of course, being done ahead of time doesn’t really help if I don’t record it until Thursday evening. Oh well, baby steps.
At this point, I’d normally talk some about last week’s games. I’m not sure I can bring myself to do that in a way that would still leave this post family-friendly. Purdue played one of the most awful games of football I’ve ever had the misfortune to watch. It was an absolute travesty, and it’s not the first time this season that my beloved Boilers have folded. I hate to place the blame on a coach that’s been in charge a full 5 games, but there’s clearly some problems in the program. There’s talent on the field, we’ve seen it (just never for an entire game). Our big problems are mental errors, and at some point you have to say “well the coach just doesn’t have them well prepared.” I wanted to say that Purdue will beat Minnesota this weekend. I think they’re certainly capable of it, but I can no longer pick them to win until they’ve shown that they can. Is it basketball season yet?
