Happy Scott Frost Day, everyone! It is a joy to be the cause of another team’s anguish. Nebraska fans had cooled on Scott Frost long before today, but it seems like Purdue’s victory today was the ultimate turning point. If you go over to their various sites there ate garments being rended and teeth being gnashed because he had the audacity to lose to Purdue. A common refrain is that they “had a week off to prepare for a not good Purdue team”.
Well, if Purdue is 5-3 and not good, what does that make 3-6 Nebraska?
It has been a roller coaster season. Jeff Brohm has been all over the map and the past week, because he did not do something no Purdue coach has done in 18 years, he was getting dragged all week. Well, we have good Jeff Brohm back, and for the next six days we get to enjoy it until he doesn’t beat a top 5 Michigan State team.

For as good as Purdue's defense has been this season, I don't think speed is its strength. The Cornhuskers are drilling the Boilermakers to the edge and getting up field too quickly.— Kyle Charters (@KyleCharters79) October 30, 2021
Is that George Karlaftis’ first holding call of the season?— Brian Neubert — GoldandBlack.com (@brianneubert) October 30, 2021

we run Yant down the field like a lumbering giant— CornNation (@CornNation) October 30, 2021
then we run an option, a quarterback run and what the actual fuck are we doing on offense?
it’s like we have 500 plays and we’re determined to use them all
Purdue has a chance to finish the regular season with more than 6 wins for the first time since 2007 (assuming MSU & OSU are Ls).— Dr. J ⛅ (@Air_Force_Juan) October 30, 2021
Getting that 6th win is still a hurdle, but damn I didn't think we'd be in this position going into November.
