Jimmy Clausen leads the way...Irish defeat Purdue

Posted by BrianBoru at 9/27/2009 12:30 AM EDT

Jimmy Clausen is a helluva quarterback. Playing on a bum foot, he led his Fighting Irish on a game-winning drive to defeat the Purdue Boilermakers 24-21.

On fourth-and-goal, Clausen found his remarkable tight end, Kyle Rudolph, for the winning toss.

The Irish were able to control the game for much of the contest, but Purdue managed to hang around.

I will have more tomorrow, after these margaritas are out of my system.

It was a huge win for the Irish, though there are more than a few concerns, which I will address in detail in my blog tomorrow.
