CHAMPAIGN -- Purdue rolls into Memorial Stadium with a 2-2 record, but it might be the most misleading record in the conference. That's not an unfair thought when you consider it's the only school with a coach publicly on the hot seat, a 50-7 loss to a team (Maryland) that few consider a top half team in the Big Ten and a cloud of uncertainty hovering over one of the team's few bright spots. That would be sophomore running back Markell Jones, who averaged 4.6 yards per carry before injuring his shoulder. He remains day-to-day.
