Purdue suffers its first loss of the season.
This was a terribly frustrating loss for Purdue because we had every opportunity to make it a win and didn’t. It was almost the exact opposite of the Illinois game because, in that game, we had every chance to lose, but still won because of the ineptitude of the Illini late. does that mean Purdue is a mediocre team and Northwestern is a good team? Does is mean we are a good team and Northwestern is a great team? Does it mean we are the Big Ten’s goo/bad team in that we can beat the bad teams we play, but we struggle against the good (read: top 25) teams we play?
At least if it is the latter it means we can probably win the next three game on the schedule until we play the absolute juggernaut that is the Indiana Hoosiers. Until that time comes, here is In Tweets:

I will tell you, I have no reason to believe it is injury related any longer https://t.co/ViygDqS5p7

We can’t have nice things.

Bend AND Break is not a good defensive philosophy

Cam Allen is going to be All-B1G sometime soon

Offense will want to do something here before it gets even wetter. Not a day to be playing from behind against a solid team like Northwestern. #Analysis

Which is a better offensive strategy than the Hazel years

I’m positive Purdue’s backup TE is faster than their starting RB

This is terrible offense. I already have to watch the Bears on Sunday’s I don’t need this on my Saturday’s.

1. I like AOC, but don’t love AOC. Purdue will have a ceiling while he is QB. How after 4 years isn’t the QB room stronger?
2. Supposedly we have this WR armada, but no one is getting a ball thrown to them besides a double-covered Bell (See Point 1)

Yep…and those of us who’ve been catching holy hell for seeing that our QB has tunnel vision for one WR and it would come back to bite us know just enough about football to comment. Triple covered throw to him as I speak. https://t.co/HeFZdO5Si4

It’d be great if we could stop running 2 yard drag routes on 3rd and 8

Maybe we could offer Ramsey some fries or something while he stands there for 15 mins waiting for an open receiver.

Really flat/disappointing effort from Purdue so far, in a game with huge B1G West implications.

I recant my reply earlier. Every rose has its thorn

They’re just playing with my emotions at this point.

There has to be something better than forcing it to Bell every play.

At least we beat Northwestern in the virtual season
