We always knew this was going to be a weird season with mostly empty stadiums, last minute cancellations, a start on October 24th, December home games, and more. What might be the weirdest part? Purdue is 2-0 for the first time since 2007. That year it started the year by beating Toledo and Eastern Illinois by the combined score of 104-30. This year Iowa and Illinois are significantly better, but the pair of conference wins, especially Big Ten West wins, has Purdue thinking a little more than a mere bowl game (if there end up being bowl games).
Now Purdue has a chance to move to 3-0 for the first time since starting 5-0 in 2007, might even crack the top 25 for the first time since 2007 with another win, and we can move to 3-0 in conference play for the first time since 2003. It is like our own Let’s Get Weird podcast come to life.
Enjoy the Tweets from a second straight win. To pay tribute to the late, great Sean Connery, “Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and f*** the prom queen.”
You did it, Trebek. You outlived Sean Connery.— Adam Jacobi (@Adam_J_Tweets) October 31, 2020
Should we treat Plummer and Burton like they are the Vice Presidents and AOC is the President? Don’t ever allow them to be together in case one goes down they don’t all go down? Already seen that with Wisconsin and Illinois— Brad Ebann (@BradEbann) October 31, 2020

First career interception by @derrickbarnes21 gives the Boilermakers the ball at their own 9.
Good on Wright to socially distance himself from the DBs too.— Travis Miller (@JustTMill) October 31, 2020

Hey @HammerAndRails I really wonder how Brohm is doing now, considering he seemed to have a vested interest in a Purdue loss today. He okay?— The Champaign Room (@Champaign_Room) October 31, 2020
