We just need some good news at this point.
Yes, the football team is likely not going to a bowl, but after five straight losses and a frustrating lost to a very good Bucknell team last night it has been over a month since we've been able to celebrate a win in either sport. I am not asking for a bowl-qualifying run at this point. I am just asking for one damn day where I can actually feel good about being a Purdue sports fan.
We're the ones that spend money on tickets and spend Saturday afternoons watching this team on TV. I just want one damn win.
Of course, it is coming against Our Most Hated Rival today. The Trophy of Badassery is at stake for the second year in a row. Let's bring it home and assure that the tickets I have for the next two games at least have something more to play for.
