Today was another tough one in South Bend for the Boilers. They really fought hard though, and I don’t think they should have their heads hung low. The score was not what the Purdue fans wanted to see, but I think we learned a lot today about this football team. This is a much improved squad that took a ranked Notre Dame team at home to the edge. I wasn’t in prime position to get pictures in row 46, but I did take a few. Here are a few pictures from the day that I liked.
The Notre Dame band has it’s pregame concert at Bond Hall
I have some ideas here, but I think a caption contest should be in order
Robert Maci can only get the shirt tail of Everett Golson
When you get your hands up good things can happen
Gabe Holmes hit as the ball goes over his head before the half
Robert Marve led the Boilers to a score just before the half
The Notre Dame band had a nice tribute to Neil Armstrong during their halftime show
After the halftime show they formed the monogram ND on the field
Sometimes you can have too many people breaking up the pass…
…because neither one gets the pick
Tyler Eifert tore up Purdue all day until he left the game due to injury
Kawann Short does not get the field goal block, but does get his helmet knocked off
Caleb TerBush gets his pass knocked down by Luis Nix
I think Brian Kelly is explaining to Golson that anyone in a red hat can take your place if you don’t step it up
Is this the last pass play in the career of Robert Marve?
