Yesterday was the second rough game in a row inside of Ross Ade Stadium. I must be the eternal optimist because once again I came to the game ready to see a win. Things started off great with a touchdown in 38 seconds for the Boilers. A crisp deep ball led to an easy score. I thought that this was the turning point. When Wisconsin scored to tie it nearly as quickly I thought we would see a shootout. Little did I know that the score would be the first of 38 unanswered points by the Badgers. Akeem Hunt scored on a nice run late to bookend the day, but the 38-14 score pretty much shows you how badly Purdue was beaten on the day. Luckily we had tickets in the WLFI suite so the rain that soaked most fans did not get to us. The stands never seemed too packed from the start, but the play combined with the rain made us feel like we were at an exclusive event for most of the second half. The Boilers have a tough game in Columbus next week, and do not return home until the first week of November. It will be interesting to see how the fans respond when Penn State comes to town. Enough ranting. Here are some of the pictures that I liked from the game this weekend:

The student section really emptied out after ‘Shout’. Here some of the fans who stayed watch the final minutes tick away

Here are some pictures from the game yesterday. I had a prior engagement so I could only watch the first quarter in the stadium, but that may have been just as well. I think that yesterday was a case of terrible timing. The Boilers were very confident, and Michigan was still seething from a beat down in South Bend with a bye week behind them. I have said all season that the Boilers have a good shot to end up in Indy for the title game. This game would have been huge, but it was not a Leaders Division game. They need to come out just as mad as Wisconsin last week, and get this ship righted. One bad game does not define a season. Another game like this next week though and it just may. Here are a few of the pictures from last week that I liked:

The Boilers seemed to come out very pumped up yesterday

Robert Marve was dressed and played against the Wolverines. He is a playmaker, but one wonders what his body will let him do at this point

Marve warming up again. He is a treat to watch, and I hope that he can give this team a spark

I finally was able to see the new ballpark for the Purdue baseball team last Sunday. They have given the public chances to see it, but something has always come up. Sunday I was able to see the park as well as some game action. Here are a few shots from the day that I liked.

Not much to post this week from the game. We had seats in the end zone with a group, and we had to leave at the half. I did manage to snag a couple of interesting shots though. Here are the ones that I liked from the game.

This drum major was a strict one

Ricardo Allen sets a Purdue record with his 4th pick six of his career

Not to be outdone Josh Johnson quickly snagged a pick six of his own. Allen might have been more excited for Johnson

Just before halftime I saw this cool reflection in a Tuba (I know it isn’t a tuba)
