Purdue lost by 14 to Iowa and it didn't feel even remotely that close. The Boilers lost by 13 at Nebraska and it felt much closer. It is hard to describe, but there was a major difference this week in the team we saw. You can see it reflected in this week's In Tweets:
THE PURDUE DEFENSE JUST HELD NEBRASKA TO A FIELD GOAL— Not Matt Painter (@NotMattPainter) October 22, 2016
The Darrell Hazell era is over.
Eh, we'll review the tape and get back to you before we say that officially. https://t.co/idBaElKwFN— The Boiling Points (@PUBoilingPoints) October 22, 2016
@ARHolmesBTP I just popped a bottle of champaign and poured it over my head.— Drew Schneider (@Drewtigeralum) October 22, 2016
Here's the interesting thing about firing Hazell halfway through the year. If Purdue shows spark now, it's a direct damnation of Hazell.— Casey Bartley (@cryan26onHandR) October 22, 2016
So, uh, Purdue showed up— Loretta8 (@Loretta8_SoP) October 22, 2016
My young bulls out there!!! Nice TD @TEAM_yancey— Raheem Mostert (@RMos_8Ball) October 22, 2016
That hurts. 88 yards and Purdue gets out of a 3rd and 11 with a TD.— CornNation (@CornNation) October 22, 2016
All sorts of profanity.
Not Yet! https://t.co/hiu46ZrmKS— Beneath The Paint (@BeneathThePaint) October 22, 2016
Hey don't forget that drive started on the 2 yard line. 98 yards. MARBLES! pic.twitter.com/CEljjNPHAC— The Boiling Points (@PUBoilingPoints) October 22, 2016
I don't think these commentators understand what's going on right now @HammerAndRails— Isaac Myers (@isaac_myers95) October 22, 2016
Stubblefield gets a bonus 10 yds for doing the boiler up into the end zone though https://t.co/5am4pfd604— Beneath The Paint (@BeneathThePaint) October 22, 2016
Remember that ‘rest the starters’ bit? Yeah.— CornNation (@CornNation) October 22, 2016
We have a lot to go, but we can’t take a week off for anyone.

here for a world where the Boilermakers have a victory over a top ten team and a two game win streak over Nebraska https://t.co/6wefLq028v— BUFFALO CHILL CODY (@edsbs) October 22, 2016
@HammerAndRails this shite commentator is actually lamenting how Nebraska is playing. He actually sounds angry with them.— Chad A (@Kharvfanfla15) October 22, 2016
Unbelievable. Four consecutive 3rd down stops. @HammerAndRails This must be some kind of World Record, right?— Rawlings Yarborough (@Stabbyballs) October 22, 2016
@HammerAndRails I love the heart the team is playing with. It's been MIA for a while.— Beehler (@boiler_beehler) October 22, 2016
@HammerAndRails I haven't been this excited by watching Purdue football in YEARS! Both sides of the line are a totally different team!— Justin Black (@JustinWBlack) October 22, 2016
Memorial Stadium is..uh...unhappy with the Husker defense. @HammerAndRails— Greg McManus (@GregMcLNK) October 22, 2016
You didn’t buy enough alcohol for this.— CornNation (@CornNation) October 22, 2016

@HammerAndRails Did the sun rise in the west today?— Mark Jetzer (@MarkJetzer) October 22, 2016
No matter the outcome.. it's great to see the Boilers be competitive period!— Albert Evans (@Albert_T32) October 22, 2016
