I didn't get much of a chance to highlight these since I was pretty busy during the game, but it is still a fun feature to have. As for Behind the Numbers, let's merge it with this post, shall we. I think we need to give Danny Etling for having a career day and showing a ton of promise despite getting sacked eight times according to the box score. Etling finished with an impressive 21 of 33 passing for 223 yards and a touchdown against an interception. He also had his first career rushing TD.
Those are rather pedestrian numbers, I know, but the 63.6% completion percentage was easily his best of the season. His rating of 124.3 was also his highest along with 21 completions, and he was only 18 yards short of his season high in yardage. If we can ever get his kid an offensive line so he is not fearing for his life on every snap he is going to be a good one.
Purdue long snapper practicing just hit somebody in a sensitive area. Going to be one of those days.— Ben Jones (@Ben_Jones88) November 16, 2013

No idea why teams throw against Purdue. The linebackers are so fucking terrible that any running back on an opponent roster can get 100.— Riley Schmitt (@Riles23) November 16, 2013
It's incredible to watch the difference in the offensive line play in the run game.— Jumbo Heroes (@jumboheroes) November 16, 2013
Was that the first tackle by the first man to the ball? #Purdue— Ross MacLochness (@RossMacLochness) November 16, 2013

And that is why Raheem should touch the ball more.— Crosby Wright (@CWright1001) November 16, 2013

4 biggest plays this year for Purdue have come from the special teams (2 dropped punts and 2 KO returns). Frank Beamer would be proud.— Juan Crespo (@Air_Force_Juan) November 16, 2013
I get to be inside the stadium for the 2nd half, so hopefully we didn't use all up all our scoring in the 1st half. #BoilerUp— Paul Branham (@boilerpaulie) November 16, 2013
Purdue scored more than 10 points in the first half? WE WANT BAMA!— Juan Crespo (@Air_Force_Juan) November 16, 2013
Darrell Hazell has huge balls.— John (@jberlako) November 16, 2013
Idk whether to be happy we scored 21 points but lost @ PSU by 24 or b happy that it was our highest score since NIU on 9/28 @HammerAndRails— John Simatovich (@RealJohnboy01) November 16, 2013
