#6 Purdue Boilermakers

A few years back, with Drew Brees in the pocket, Joe Tiller’s Boilermakers were the latest challengers to the Big Ten’s established powers (Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin and Penn State). However, that was a few years ago. Awful in ’05 and mediocre last year the ’07 Boilermakers are (get ready for it) trying to get their steam back. (ha!)

With a dangerous passing game and effective runners Purdue’s offense should be able to keep this team in a lot of games. The big question is whether or not Tiller can find any chemistry on defense and it how good the defense is that will make or break this season.

Prediction: 8-4 (4-4)

Worst Case: 5-7 (2-6)
If the defense doesn’t show up then everyone stays home for the holidays.

Best Case: 10-2 (6-2)
The defense does show up and Joe Tiller gets to shake down the thunder… and get a contract extension.
