Do you now understand why we need to fire Tiller? What else do you need to see? I'll be surprised if we beat IU next week.

Another terrible season. Just like every year. We pile up wins against nobody schools, then have a losing record in the big ten, then go to a lower-tier bowl game and lose.
Whoopee this is fun!

This puts us in line for about a sixth place bowl game(Some crap bowl). This is not progress from last year with all the supposedly senior leadership we had! This is a down team that will go down to Bloomington and get their lunch handed to them next week. Maybe not such a bad thing, might get lucky and Joe will retire! We need to get a young coach that has some fire and desire to install some toughness in this program! This is really pathetic!

with a younger coach. Tiller started the rumor that the Big Ten figured out the spread when reality, he chose to drift away from it.

PU is obviously bowl eligible but if they lose to IU they still can be passed over for a bowl game. Since MSU beat them and IU probably will next weekend you'd have to give the nod to those teams over PU. I can't believe mediocre MSU just scored 48 points on the Boilers at home...THAT is inexcusable, THAT is on the coaches for not having your team prepared.

Boiler fans: We Hoosiers welcome you to the Suck a%$ game next week. There are at least 3-4 B10 coaches that need to be removed by 11-18-07 ! IU, Purdue, Michigan just to name a few.

Do we have any corners on this team that can cover an average passing attack? Where is the leadership? The coaching is un-inspired, and Painter cannot put together an above average game to save his life.
From where I sat today, we had 3 offensive playmakers that wanted to be there (Keller, Taylor, & Sheets)... everyone else was lost. As usual, we racked up penalties, and we kicked to the 35yd line. The BTN broadcasters labeled our kicking scheme as "being defeatist, and playing not to lose"...and I couldn't agree more. Tiller has no fire, and his staff apparently lacks ability. This team is outcoached, outhustled and out played by teams that are not more talented week in and week out... PITIFUL

It is what happens when you play a MAC schedule and then step into the Big Ten. Purdue will get beat by IU next week and then Tiller will really receive the heat.....

Actually, what will happen is that IU will beat Purdue, and then Purdue will play Ball State in a bowl to see who is only slightly better than N.D. this year.

I agree with your first comment. If you look at the Big Ten standings, Purdue is currently 7th, with a 3-4 record. If we lose to IU, we will be 3-5, as will IU. However, even though we BEAT Iowa, they are 4-4, and their last game is a non-conference game which they should win. So if we lose and Iowa wins, we will both be 7-5 but Iowa will be 4-4 in the Big Ten and we would be 3-5.

IU would have identical records of 7-5 and 3-5, but of course in head-to-head, they would have an advantage. That means 7 Big Ten teams would in theory be "ahead" of Purdue in bowl standings, and I can't really see 8 teams making bowls, especially now that Ohio State lost.

And just to throw one more wrinkle in, if Purdue loses to IU and IF on the off-chance that Northwestern were to somehow beat Illinois, they ALSO would would 4-4 in the Big Ten, 7-5 overall and would ALSO be ahead of Purdue in the standings even though we beat them.

So is Joe's job riding on the game next week. It SHOULDN'T BE. He should be GONE after TODAY'S LOSS!!!!!

And of course, I forget your other point... If Purdue loses to IU and Michigan State wins AT HOME next against Penn State, they too will be 3-5 in Big Ten play and 7-5 overall, but they ALSO will have beaten Purdue. Hmmm, so our possible 7-5 record doesn't look so good now, I guess. For Purdue to assue itself of "some" bowl, however minor it may be, it HAS TO WIN at IU. A loss probably means staying home.

And the way Purdue played today, I would bet on Ball State....
