Tigers thrashed by Purdue in demoralizing loss

17 September 2017

The Tigers managed just 203 total yards. After beginning the game on the bench, Crockett had just 10 carries for 19 yards, fueling injury concerns.

"They played hard, they played to win", Brohm said.

Few of us dared hope for a victory, and when Purdue got the ball after the kickoff and by using the revolving wedge and boxing the tackles, assisted by a bad pass, scored six points in five minutes, it seemed like a walkover.

Any thought of Missouri carrying momentum to the second half ended when linebacker Markus Bailey intercepted Lock's sideline pass on the first drive after halftime.

After a fiery, lectern-pounding postgame press conference last week, Odom was somber and subdued Saturday. In the second quarter, Missouri committed penalties on four straight plays - three false starts and a holding infraction. He said he didn't see a clunker coming after a good week of practice. The Boilermakers took advantage of that turnover when Blough connected with Richie Worship for a 1-yard touchdown pass.

The missile posed no threat to North America or Guam, Manning told reporters during a briefing this morning. Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia also warned that there is no alternative to a peaceful solution.

The second interception came in the fourth quarter, when Lock tossed a gorgeous pass to wideout J'Mon Moore in the end zone only to have the ball snatched from Moore's hand by Purdue cornerback Kamal Hardy.

Purdue (2-1) drove 75 yards in 11 plays on its opening drive, setting the pace of a one-sided offensive clinic.

The Boilermakers had 13 different receivers catch a pass.

Next week is his biggest challenge on the Boiler's schedule yet as the Boilermakers take on Jim Harbaugh and the seventh-ranked Michigan Wolverines at home in front of a homecoming crowd.

Missouri's futile performance leaves Barry Odom and his staff with an enormous amount of work to do ahead of next week's matchup in Columbia against the No. 15 Auburn Tigers.
