Isn’t this how things go for us as Purdue fans? We get a run of subpar results. We steel ourselves that, “Yeah, they just don’t have it this year” and hope for the best the rest of the way. Then football goes and pulls off a big road upset.
At this point, just don’t play Purdue if you’re undefeated past October 1st. Just don’t do it. Jeff Brohm has lost to Rutgers, Eastern Michigan, and Nevada. He is only 31-31 now after 62 games at Purdue. Play him as an undefeated team after October 1st and he is 4-2 though. This marks the third time in the last two seasons that Purdue has gone in and wrecked an undefeated team by double digits after October 1. Last year it was Iowa and Michigan State. This year it was Minnesota.
I admit I was shocked. The schedule was weak, but Minnesota looked very good the first four weeks of the season. college football media was blowing a lot of smoke up their butts before the game, but they pretty much played a terrible game with three interceptions (they had one coming into the season) a turnover on downs, a missed field goal, and Purdue stonewalled their vaunted running game to 47 yards.
It was an impressive win, and Twitter loved it.
How many times are Purdue's DB's going to try the and tackle without their arms? It cost them the Penn State game and just cost them about 50 yards on that play. All because they refuse to execute a skill you learn in peewee football.— Druuuuuuuuuuuuskimane (@LegendofSM) October 1, 2022
He has a right to the ball, moon balls give the D plenty of time to find the ball and play it.— #FireManfred #DisbandUSSF (@BoilerBandsman) October 1, 2022
opponent misses a 28-yard field goal? opponent going for it on their own 30 in the first quarter?— Homefield (@HomefieldApparl) October 1, 2022
folks, it’s shaping up to be a Zany Purdue Against A Ranked Opponent game. pic.twitter.com/ZycFEplkSR
You need to be more specific…— Robert Baker (@kerba1123) October 1, 2022
Is that Brian Brohm on the sideline, or Brian Ferentz? My god…— OV Breezy (@OV_Breezy) October 1, 2022

When Manning would run (I use that term loosely) at Colts' games, we'd say "Isn't that a sign of the end times?"— Troy Stiffler (@TroyStiffler) October 1, 2022
I am not watching the game and this is the first tweet I see about the game. I assume this means it's a typical Purdue game then.— Juan More Tweet (@Air_Force_Juan) October 1, 2022
Nice undefeated season you had there Minnesota. It’d be a shame if someone would come and ruin it. BY GOD THAT’S PURDUE PETE’S MUSIC pic.twitter.com/6WeQW62sF7— Sickos Committee (@SickosCommittee) October 1, 2022
