This Might Hurt Our T-Shirt Sales

As if there was ever any doubt, Robert Marve is lost for the season with a torn ACL.

Eventually, we'll have more guys on the sidelines limping than we do coaches. Which, come to think of it... maybe K Smith and R Marve should run the offense from the sidelines.

Our thoughts go out to Robert, who worked hard to come back this year and always seemed truly excited about his opportunity with the Boilermakers. Who knows what this means for his football future. It could be the end of the road, which has to be tough to take for a young guy.

Not Marve-lous at all.

I'm just hoping we make through the off week without a season ending injury. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if somebody blew out a knew walking to class.

a knew? A knee.

That sucks...

I posted this further down but is worth the fresh post:

Can I get a new shirt... Marve-less?

Sorry if this has been posted someplace else but, seriously, send me a new shirt.

The football god's have a way of smacking sense into coaches, sometimes the hard way. The only way we're going to amount to anything is to put a freshman under center and groom him....that's bleeding I can stomach. Starting juniors and seniors and losing to MAC teams I cannot stomach. Lose with a true freshman at the helm and you get leniency...and the chance to be special in a couple years.

Rob Henry- I'm all in.

And maybe now my Rob Henry-vlous shirt idea will grow some legs?

We're still smarting from the last investment since we barely broke even.

Stay tuned...basketball shirts coming soon.

Can I get a shirt:

"Hen-ry-hab"?!
"Hen-ry-building year"?
"Hen-ry-consider our strength and conditioning coaches"?

I don't know...

What is with Boilermaker players hurting their knees? Did the Ostrich convince them to do this?

I've said it a thousand times before and I'll say it again. There is more money in finding a way to prevent and/or heal ACL injuries in a short period of time than there is in developing a cure for AIDS.
