Purdue’s Loss = My Fault

Sorry Purdue fans! It’s apparently my fault we lost.  I changed seats during the game.

My friend Andy had an extra ticket with him, so I decide to sit in the Pit for the first half.  The seats are just 3 rows behind the bench so you really feel like you are part of the game.  For the first half, Purdue looked ok.  We weren’t doing anything spectacular, but we were winning by 7.  

Since it was our last home game, I wanted to sit with my normal crew for the second half…  Especially since Jessi made great signs for Senior night!!!  Our goal was to get Calf-Tat’s attention with our We “heart” Calf-Tat signs.  It worked!!!!!  He gave us a smile and a wave and said thanks.  Made my day!!  Back to the game… Purdue looked awful the second half.  Our passes were lobs, JJ couldn’t post up, offense and defensive was bad.  We just didn’t have it together.  Northwestern is tough.  They beat MSU at MSU!  I just hate that they came into our house on Senior night and beat us.  Hopefully we will learn from this and apply some better consistency for the Big Dance coming up.

Here were my seats for the first half of the game…

My beloved Calf-Tat.  You will be missed.  If this banner goes missing, I’ll have an alibi prepared.
