A Small Step For Purdue…



Homecoming was truly a special day for the Boilers this year. We had the ailing Wildcats in town to play in the football game, and Neil Armstrong was back on campus to help dedicate the building that bears his name. Purdue won the game 35-17, but the game was in doubt until the fourth quarter. Neil Armstrong poked his head out of the press box and led the singing of shout. I normally do not like this new tradition, but yesterday it was one of the highlights of the day. The crowd was waiting to see if he would be the guest conductor, and gave him a huge ovation when he did come out. The energy from that moment seemed to move to the field. The Boilers took control of the game from that point on. The picture above was an obvious touchdown for the Boilers that was not called. Even after a review the ball was spotted on the one. The Boilers ended up punching it in with a Jeff Lindsay touchdown catch. On a side note the Boilers looked a lot better today with Jaycen Taylor back in the lineup. Even with bum arm in a cast he provided a fire to the offense. It will be good to see him spark this offense for the rest of the year.
