The losing streak is now at four games. Even worse, the last three of those games were against some really bad teams that have only beaten one other team each. It is a dismal year outside of sports, but we watch it for a release. We’re treated with empty stadiums and bad football as our reward. Purdue has had every opportunity to win each of its last four games, even yesterday against Nebraska, but like so many other teams in this conference, it is a bad football team.
At least it is basketball season.
Don’t worry kids, we only have two more weeks of this. One of those weeks is a week against our rival in the midst of their best season in decades, however. With Purdue not playing well it is certainly not good going into the Bucket Game.
Yes, it is a dark time for Purdue football after some glimpses of the light.

Have been putting off cleaning up the last of the leaves, but am going to go do that instead of subjecting myself to the rest of Purdue-Nebraska.— Derek Schultz (@Schultz975) December 5, 2020
Where did the fun that came with Jeff brohm go? The big play, trick play, fun mentality. Completely disappeared— Don (@BoilerFanDon) December 5, 2020
it's all just very confusing and there's no real easy solution here happy Saturday welcome to Purdue purgatory— Aneesh Ramaswamy (@aneeshswamy) December 5, 2020
I want Purdue to come back and win bc I want Purdue to win but I also would love to witness the Nebraska meltdown— michael (@therailroadtie) December 5, 2020
I feel like it can't be overstated how much losing to Minnesota the way that we did killed the fight for everyone involved with this program, including the fans.— Tyler Trent Fan Account (@Holmes_y_Rails) December 5, 2020

if the officials call timeout this drive— CornNation (@CornNation) December 5, 2020
and have three players from each team spin around baseball bats then run to the 40 and back to see who gets the next personal foul penalty
it’ll fit this game like a glove
