I started Hammer & Rails 7 years ago this coming week. I can post 1,500 words like it is nothing on most days by now.
I don't have words for this.
Purdue was up 16 at halftime and 18 early the second half. It was rolling and times were good.
Purdue was down 4 with 2 minutes left and looked dead.
Somewhere in between there Michigan State got hot and erased an 18 point lead in about 4.3 seconds, aided by the incredibly rare 6-point possession and the brilliance of Denzel Valentine. Like the Iowa game, things turned against Purdue on both ends of the floor.
Somehow, it found a way.
It found a way when Rapheal Davis went from scorching hot to ice cold.
It found a way when Caleb Swanigan was making some of the most bizarre decisions you will ever see in a close game.
It found a way because A.J. Hammons nearly fucked around and got a triple double, and still physically ripped this game away from the Spartans.
I am headed downstairs to get some quotes and work on a deeper wrap, but holy crap.
All wins are beautiful.
