hawkeye Posted November 17, 2010 Share Posted November 17, 2010 Enough with the quarterback drama. Does it really matter whom Purdue starts these last two games?All that is doing is taking away from giving proper kudos to the team’s best player: senior defensive end Ryan Kerrigan.If the Boilermakers were even decent, Kerrigan would be getting talked about for the Heisman. You better believe he’ll be on my ballot – maybe not at the top, but he’ll be on there.Against Michigan, he had 10 tackles, all solo, four sacks and two forced fumbles.His 23 1/2 tackles for loss lead the nation. His 11 1/2 sacks and five forced fumbles rank No. 2 in the country. He also has 62 tackles.He rarely fails to get to the quarterback when he’s blocked one-on-one. When he gets doubled by another lineman or a tight end, he still affects the game because that frees up his linemates.“He just plays his heart out every snap,” coach Danny Hope said. “Every day, NFL scouts come to practice and they watch him and like him, and then they watch film on him all day long. And after they watch the whole season, they like him even more because they realize he’s got a great motor, a relentless effort, a very unselfish player. He’s definitely one of the best defensive players in the country.”http://www.journalgazette.net/article/20101115/SPORTS0303/311159973/1008/SPORTSAll I gotta say is RK produces.
