Purdue Twitter can generally go one of two ways on game days. First, there’s the chance that the sky is falling, everyone is awful, everyone deserves to be fired, and everyone is a jerk. Those times aren’t very fun. Second, there’s the chance that a game goes well or Purdue meets/exceeds expectations in a difficult game and you get a good group of people having a lot of fun. Saturday night was definitely more of the second type of night so Twitter was largely enjoyable. Here are some of my favorite tweets from Saturday.

Purdue ran the Ohio State fake punt!— Matt Hinton (@MattRHinton) December 4, 2022
That offsides penalty is going to keep me up all night isn't it.— Krizzle (@KrizzleM) December 4, 2022
@HammerAndRails I'll take it. One half in and we've acquitted ourselves well. A few self inflicted wounds (that FG offsides, oy!) but nothing fatal.— Dustin Blythe Ⓥ (@Dustin_Blythe) December 4, 2022
The halftime adjustments will be key. That's where Michigan has excelled this season. We have to counterpunch.

Turning a two score game into a two score game. Purdue! pic.twitter.com/LuGhpaxNbC— Tom Fornelli (@TomFornelli) December 4, 2022
The thing is if you’re Purdue you have to YOLO this entire game, can’t be conservative. Someone pay me $$$$$ for my coaching takes.— E (@bitsycs) December 4, 2022
So there you have it. A nice recap of the highs and lows. There were some laughs, some smiles, some tears, some yelling. What more, other than a Purdue victory, could you want? So that will do it for this edition on In Tweets. Catch us for our next edition when Purdue plays LSU.
