It's time to Boiler up! Purdue's poster schedule is next on our list and the first from a Big Ten team. For the review, let's hear from Mike:

"In the interest of full disclosure, I'm a Purdue alum.

"Joe Tiller enters his final year as Boilermaker coach needing only two victories to become the program's winningest coach. However, I think this season will be a mighty struggle for his team. Oregon comes to West Lafayette, as does Central Michigan, a team Purdue beat, 51-48, in the Motor City Bowl. If all goes well, Joe will ride off into the sunset after some mid-level bowl game.

"The poster features senior Curtis Painter, who some believe will be one of the top quarterbacks in the country. He needs to win a few big games before I jump on the bandwagon.

"Overall, the poster has a nice look and prominently uses Purdue’s colors of black and old gold. Not exactly sure what that background is — it appears to be bricks. Apparently the blurring of them is supposed to convey motion. But to me it looks like falling down a well, maybe an apt metaphor for the season."

Purdue's QB is Curtis Painter. Matt Painter is the Basketball Coach!
