Yeah, we struggled. Elijah Sindelar threw for 376 yards and two scores, but a critical stop inside the 5 yard line during the second quarter made the difference, really. If Purdue scores there it might make a difference, as it was only 7-0 at that time. Unfortunately, with a missed field goal and a failed conversion inside the 5 Purdue left 10 points on the field. It just so happens that was the margin of victory.
So let’s see what In Tweets had to say:
Just got to Northwestern. The cool thing about an urban campus is you don't know if you're smelling college kid puke or hobo puke.— Mike DeFabo (@MikeDeFabo) November 11, 2017

Are Northwestern's kickers suspended or something?— Boiled Sports (@BoiledSports) November 12, 2017
#Purdue offense reverting to a horizontal attack that is both unproductive and dangerously predictable. Sindelar flirting with picks on every throw.— Nathan Baird (@nbairdjc) November 12, 2017
did our running backs die.— Riles23 (@Riles23) November 12, 2017
a QB who makes receivers have to leap to catch passes behind the line doesn't help either— Jeff Bentley (@Indy_Rider) November 12, 2017
Ben Makowski's 23-yard reception is the longest by a @BoilerFootball long snapper in school history. #BoilerUp— Tom Schott (@schottts) November 12, 2017
What about that throw though too.— Brock Davis (@BroxtonDavis) November 12, 2017

Good news: Opponents have to watch Purdue game tape now.
Bad news: They watched it and figured something out.
We should be bowl eligible already and we aren’t and we won’t be. A year ago that sentence didn’t exist, but it does now and I’m disappointed.
Have no doubt, I believe in coach Bhrom, coach Holt. These two have back to back conference championships. Coach Holt has recruited Heisman Trophy winners. And this staff didn’t recruit any of these players. Yet these players have been better coached in the year that the staff— Ed Hickey (@EdHickey4) November 12, 2017

Hazell and Burke should apologize to Purdue fans for leaving such an out-manned bunch of football players. Brohm has no chance unless he can recruit better than Hazell. Time will tell, but I am pretty sure his recruiting can't be worse.— Ken Maher (@oldgoldandblack) November 12, 2017
Purdue is losing because they're saving their talents for Our Most Hated Rivals.— Juan (@Air_Force_Juan) November 12, 2017
Heavy dosage of watching Purdue being 5 or 6 plays from being 8-1. After 8 years of Hope and Hazell it’s nice to believe in this team again. The progress is there. There’s no denying it.— Breezy (@OV_Breezy) November 12, 2017
Excited to see what Brohm will do with upgrades across the board in the coming years...right now we are hard to watch. Optimism is nice than knowing we are going to be living in darkness next year. Hey...at least we got a @BoilerBall game tomorrow to cheer us up! @HammerAndRails— BenjaminSchott (@BenjaminSchott) November 12, 2017
I love that this team isn't quitting. Hard when things aren't going well, teams can easily just kick the bucket and call it a day, not this team, not under Coach Brohm— ISC Purdue (4-5) (@ISC_PU) November 12, 2017
