UNIVERSITY PARK, October 29—Bumbling their way through a game that was widely regarded as a potential stumbling block on the way to a Big Ten championship, the #11 Nittany Lions of Penn State (8-1, 5-1 Big Ten) managed to pull off a 33-15 win over the unranked Purdue Boilermakers (2-6, 0-5). This Turkey was not impressed by much he saw in this sloppy win. Perhaps the team needed a bit of a humbling prior to preparing for the big showdown with Wisconsin next week. Or perhaps they’re not as good as they think they are.
Bumbling, stumbling, humbling… While a win is a win, I wouldn’t be earning the big bucks that all you faithful readers aren’t paying to read my drivel if I didn’t comment on what needs a lot of improvement. But first, the high points.
