We've been getting a lot of requests this year to weigh in on the upcoming Boilermakers football season. Either we're getting a measure of respect in this blogging world or it's just the result of a lack of options (hey, besides us and Slammer and Snails, where else do Purdue fans go?).
You may recall Boilerdowd linking you to our efforts for MVN. Here are a couple others -- this Q&A with On Wisconsin was actually a lot of fun to rattle on about... they asked some excellent questions, I thought, and didn't just go with the boring, "offense-defense-prediction" route.
In addition, a relative newcomer (at least to us) to the blogging fold, We Want The Lion, asked us for our take on the 2009 Boilers as well. You can find that one here, and it, too, is well done. Mainly because we're handsome. I guess I'd like to know... if they get the lion, what do they plan to do with it? Wait, maybe I don't want to know.
And, of course, there's also the upstart Blog Ten, who also asked us to contribute, which we of course did, because we're whores for attention.
What will really be funny is when you see our official season preview and realize we've been sandbagging everybody else and are really predicting an 11-1 season for the Boilermakers.
Oh, and the picture with this post? No particular reason. It's just Jenn Sterger, and for whatever you think about her as a publicity-grubbing hooch, this picture just makes my day. Thanks, Jenn.
