Boom!

Syndication: HawkCentral Joseph Cress/Iowa City Press-Citizen / USA TODAY NETWORK

How strange was this game? Purdue had three different spots where normally things would have gone sideways:

  • Jalen Graham dropped a near certain 95 yard pick 6.
  • Mitchell Fineran missed a short field goal after Iowa had done the same.
  • Purdue lost a fumble thanks to the dumbest rule in all of sports.

Through all that, Purdue still not only won, but won by multiple scores. In tweets is always great when Purdue wins. When Purdue beats ranked teams, it is even better. We’re getting used to beating top 5 teams, so that’s even better. Beating a top 5 team on the road? Well, that’s not something that had happened in my life time until yesterday, and I am officially old now after my birthday last week. The win was an excellent birthday gift.

So here is this week’s In Tweets. Everyone savor the flavor as Purdue now leads the Big Ten West.
