This past summer a broken water main from the Football Performance Facility construction flooded Holloway Gym and Mackey Arena, necessitating the replacement of the playing floor in both facilities. After the last two days, that is not the only football-related flood on Purdue’s campus:

Heres the little guy that caused all the mess. Stress on the pipe caused a clean break. Thrust blocks now used there pic.twitter.com/uZXymydtD5— Purdue Sports Turf (@PUSportsTurf) October 4, 2016
So yes, in short, a sinkhole in the South End Zone of Ross-Ade Stadium is developing. Thankfully, there is no home game this weekend or it would possibly be in jeopardy. Of course, Purdue doesn’t usually get to the end zone anyway, so we would be fine.
But is it a sinkhole, or has the constant struggle under Darrell Hazell caused a hellmouth to begin opening, one which will eventually swallow all of Ross-Ade Stadium and and erase our football program once and for all from existence? Is Satan himself fed up with Purdue football that he wants to wipe it from the face of the earth?
We will review the tape and try to fix it.
