Week 8: Purdue

Well that was a bit closer than we would have preferred.  But, a losing streak broken.  And the hands team got live fire experience getting two onside kicks.  Could be beneficial as the season goes on.  

But then shortly after the Hawks went 1-0 in the Big 10 West - the Illini shocked the Badgers 24-23 with a field goal as time expired.  And suddenly, the door to the West title swung open a little bit more.  

But we worry about the Badgers after the bye week. Up next, a 3 game losing streak we have to break.  From a team that is a complete train wreck in 2019.  But like Iowa State, if they can just beat Iowa, their season is made.  Hello Mildcats, we are coming to Chicago.  And bringing our defense.
