I dream of the day that the program is at a point where we can be pissed off about a Big10 win on the road.
Just think of what Iowa's records would have been in years past if they did that.On Gopherhole you learn new things every day. Wins don't count as wins if you took advantage of turnovers to get them. They should probably just take turnovers out of the game. It seems like a design flaw.
No -- Dylan Wright had to go to a funeral for a high school teammate who was killed in Utah. So --- he is ok physically anyways but we should get him back at full strength for Nebraska.I thought for a second that Ryan Santoso is playing QB for Purdue.
Jack Plumber is 6' 5"Aidan O'connell at 6' 3" is not quite the height of Santoso. The resemblance thru the helmet was there for a second.
The break couldn't have come for another reason. Part of the dismal passing game may be because Morgan and the WRs needed time to get in sync and develop trust.
TM and the OL need to get into the Gophers RPO synchronicity and get those short laser crossing passes working. Mo is Mo. The Gophers need to adapt Potts' and Irving's style of running into their offense.
They need to learn how to play to the strengths of their RBs. Mo spoiled the Offense. Now, they have to work hard and earn every victory for the rest of the season.
I like that they are throwing long passes even though CAB was unable to grab them in the first half.
Is Dylan Wright hurt?
I don't think he was great today. He didn't let the fact that some balls were dropped or that the OL play was spotty... but he got the job done, despite that. More importantly, to me, is he didn't do anything to hurt his team. The solid, dependable game manager is back... and that might be good enough.He played terrible last week and deserved some criticism but he was great today
I don't think Brohm necessarily was outcoached by Fleck, but I'm not sure if the first downs tell you much. This had a lot to do with the fact that Purdue sold out a bit to stop the run. We were going to have fewer first downs because we had much bigger plays. When you throw the ball 50+ times and you only have 1 play go for more than 30, you're also likely going to have significantly more negative plays (sacks, TOs, Ints.).I'll take a win like that every single time, but someone said Fleck outcoached Brohm. Purdue dominated much of the game. 28 first downs to 12. We won the turnover battle and won. No way was Brohm outcoached, though.
See, I'm not sure if you didn't see a pretty close version to the 2019 Morgan today. If you add those two drops to his numbers (and they were EASY balls), his numbers are looking really good today. I can't think of any bad throws that he made, I can't think of any scenario where he held onto the ball too long. He probably should have been 10-18 240 yards and 2 TDs. That's a pretty good stat line in these conditions against that defense.I don't think he was great today.

I doubt we will ever see 2019 Tanner Morgan again, and that's OK. I'm perfectly happy that we didn't have to witness last week's QB...
