Last night was an immense amount of fun. Finally, we got to go to a near sold out home sporting event and enjoy being part of the crowd. The night game atmosphere, the band, etc. It was just great to experience college football in person again. I spent the first half up in the media center behind the glass and the crowd roar permitted through it before the game. In the second half I was down in Shively and it was great to be a fan in person again too.
Bonus: Purdue won the game!
Doing the Sunday morning In Tweets column is one of my favorite columns to post each week, mostly because it grow organically from the day before due to following game on Twitter. It is a chance to catch live reactions in the moment. It also brings int he fans watching at home with those in the stands. Here is what the crowd had to say last night:

You know it's a bad call when the special teams coach is going off on an uncalled PI penalty. pic.twitter.com/8K9Axc3L0S— Dustin Blythe Ⓥ (@Dustin_Blythe) September 4, 2021
I’m just going to say it. I thought that was PI and I feel like 10% bad @HammerAndRails— Building The Dam (@BuildingTheDam) September 4, 2021
Which team is Purdue??? The one that goes run, run, pass 3 and out or the one with the trick plays?!?!?— Brad Ebann (@BradEbann) September 4, 2021

There's a sexual joke to be made about Karlaftis destroying Beavers tonight.— Dr. J ⛅ (@Air_Force_Juan) September 5, 2021
I'll let @JustTMill handle that one.
Trick play Purdue is so much more fun that regular Purdue— Dustin Schutte (@SchutteCFB) September 5, 2021

*IF* Purdue can hold off Oregon State, it will be their first-ever night game win at Ross-Ade against a team NOT from Ohio.— Dr. J ⛅ (@Air_Force_Juan) September 5, 2021
Only Ross-Ade night game wins (6pm or later kickoff):
-Ohio State (2018)
Um. Is that Oregon math or something? pic.twitter.com/MIVK0qB1Tp— Paul (@BoilerPaulie) September 5, 2021
If this score holds, he gets game ball. Period.— Michael Pryor (@MikeRossPryor) September 5, 2021
