Way to go Boilers. I'm a Hoosier fan, but it was good to see a Big Ten win in an exciting game.

What? No defense. Fun game to watch, but no wonder both teams lost over 5 games. Their D is sad.

Yeah Boilers, Congrats for again showing America why the Big Ten is awful by blowing a 21 point 3rd quarter lead to a team in the MAC and pulling out the win with a late FG. What a bunch of jokers, seriously. Dominant Win by a Dominant Conference, keep telling yourselves that Boiler Fans. As far as i am concerned Purdue has no business being in a BCS conference after the way they have played this year. Maybe you guys should just go join the MAC!

A win is a win, but the defense was terrible in the second half. Had we lost, I think Spack should have been fired, if not Tiller.

Way to go - under achieve again, just like the rest of the year. You barely pull out a game against a nobody and act like you won something. Past time for Tiller to go.

Great game Boilers, and congrats to Chris Summers for coming through with a clutch kick.

CMU is a better team than they showed earlier in the season and Purdue took care of business.

Remember this after the year ends: Would you rather win a thrilling Motor City Bowl or get pounded by OSU? Your call

Just shows you how good CMU's offense is. I don't think there's a single offense in the Big Ten that could outplay them.

The bit about Purdue having no business in the BIG TEN? It's absurd.

I found myself, a dedicated Purdue fan and graduate, rooting for the more deserving team (Central Michigan of course). Purdue has no heart. Sad to say IU does. This game should be another reason of many to get rid of Tiller. At times, it looked as though we were paid to miss tackles. Dorien Bryant will receive his much-earned demotion in the draft. He drops many passes and is too scared to go to the middle against good teams. For some reason, Brock Spack cannot inspire half the intensity in his defense that he had when he played. Tiller's expectations have dropped so low that he stated that he expected the IU game to be decided by a field goal. I don't care if we go 3-8, let's get a coach that will inspire his players!

You can speak up whenever IU football goes over the .500 mark in conference play, jackass.

IU losing to Oklahoma State is not comparable to a win over Central Northern Eastern Southern Michigan U.

I guess any win is special in Laughietter.

How low has the mighty Big 1, Little 10 sunk!

I don't want coach football. I want...

BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAINS...BRAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAINS.

Tiller's staff has become an embarrassment to Purdue. Fire his azz.

The same could be said of Purwho. Nice 500 Big 10 record. I missed that stat, as did everyone else.
