Purdue fans finding silver lining in loss of WR Keith Smith



Well, we’ve had since Saturday afternoon to digest the news, and with the offense mired in 2001 levels of suck it doesn’t feel like as big of a deal. Still, official word came today. Keith Smith, the Big Ten‘s most prolific receiver and possibly the best in the country, is done for the season. GBI released the news this afternoon that Keith Smith was done for the year with a torn ACL and MCL.

This isn’t a surprise. We have suspected this since Saturday, so we have had time to go through the grieving process. From a numbers game it looks daunting. We’re now going into the Big Ten season missing both Ralph Bolden and Smith. That’s 2,342 yards of total offense and 17 touchdowns from last season that we were expecting back. While there is a small chance Bolden will return, I don’t think we can reasonably hope for much from him.

This is not a crisis, but an opportunity!
