Joe Tiller, Purdue Head Coach Quotes
On bringing in Joey Elliot...
We were looking for a spark on offense. We were flat all day and sometimes a different voice and face in the huddle is what you need.
On Painter on being starter for next week...

You just can't come out of the redzone with no points otherwise it acts as a back breaker to the team. It would have been a different ball game with those FG's converted. Bottom line is we need to get better for next week.
Purdue Player Quotes
On facing a tough Penn State Defense...
They have a very good defense, but it was bigger than that today. I can't believe we played the way we did today. We had a great week of practice, and everyone seemed ready for this challenge.
On Passing Mike Alstott for most TD's in Purdue history...
