After having a few days to put the Purdue game in the review mirror, I finally feel like I am ready to look back at it. There isn't much you can take from a game like that. The conditions were awful, Purdue has one of the most depleted and ineffective offenses in the country, and Michigan shifted into vanilla play calling once it became clear that the only way the Wolverines would lose would be if Michigan beat itself.
Plays like this certainly weren't setting the world on fire for the Boilermakers:
Fumbles. Story of the day.
However, there were some solid performances delivered on both sides of the ball. Lets take a quick look back at my favorite things so we can put this game behind us and move on to (hopefully) greener pastures in the form of two upset bids.
Over the past couple weeks I grew tired of the old layout of the blog. It wasn't easy to see all the side bars, and the general look was too sloppy for my taste.
Say goodbye to the old look
...and say hello to a newer and hopefully easier layout to the site. If there are any problems, or you feel this new look is ugly, by all means let me know so I can take care of things. There may be a few tweaks here and there in the coming weeks, but I expect to stay true to this general theme.
More posts should start flowing in, but be sure to check Maize n' Brew regularly, as I am posting there three times a week.
Jesus, it's been a while, hasn't it. For the five people who stop by here on a regular basis, I did not forget this blog existed. I was just um, busy, you know?
Anyway, that isn't an excuse for my absence. No more ignoring the old site, and hopefully I will find time to get a couple posts up a week. Also I am toying around with a new design for the site, but when the decision comes down to writing or screwing around on Photoshop I will usually go with writing. Usually.
Hopefully the new layout happens this week, but don't hold your breath.
Things have been slow around here lately. First the bye week, then a week of utter despair after the Penn State loss have really given me little to nothing to write about. Look for new content next week after the Illinois game (You know, barring an epic collapse like last year or blowout loss. In that case I will probably just crawl in a hole and die a little until next August.)
