Look, the game wasn’t pretty. It’s not how any of us predicted it was going to play out but I guess in retrospect we should have seen it coming. Purdue has had one comfortable game all year and that was against Indiana State. Short of that though there hasn’t truly been a time where Purdue fans have felt comfortable. This weekend was no different as Purdue seemed to be in control early on but after losing a TD due to a penalty and then allowing Northwestern to score a TD things got much tighter than we all had hoped. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite tweets from Saturday.

Like we haven’t been hurt enough this year.
Little surprised Brohm isn't calling a timeout and trying to get another score at the end of the half. Purdue's passing attack was starting to get going last drive.— Casey Bartley (@CBartleyRivals) November 19, 2022
The answer to this question is unknowable. It’s like trying to understand the breeze, or grass, or butterflies. They are what they are and we just have to accept that.

Oh honey, you clearly haven't watched Brohm-ball this year.
Can Purdue just put 1 more TD on the board and make this a 3 score game so we can all relax please?— Beneath The Paint (@BeneathThePaint) November 19, 2022
Remind me what’s the first half of the sentence that ends “…and find out” because that’s what Purdue is doing.— Hammer and Rails (@HammerAndRails) November 19, 2022
