The Jay Graves Report

Purdue wets the bed down the stretch and lets Nebraska get outta the joint alive! “Popcorn”

"Git off me son!"

At the end of the third quarter after freezin’ their butts off at Ross Ade Stadium Saturday night I saw a lot of boyz dippin’ because the Purdue Boilermakers (3-5, 1-4 Big Ten) looked to be in control of Big Momma’s sweet potato pie. They were sittin’ on a 17-12 lead holdin’ Nebraska (4-4, 3-2 Big Ten) to field goals all night. For the duns that didn’t leave at the end of the third, another handful hit the exits 37 seconds into the fourth when David Blough hit Jackson Anthrop on a 13 yard TD pass to go up 24-12.

Well playboy…all of those cats got up this mornin’ stompin’ like somebody just stole their bikes because the Boilermakers gave up two touchdowns in the final quarter and one of those with 13 seconds left to lose the darn game 25-24.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Nebraska couldn’t buy a touchdown for three quarters with a brand new big face $100 bill and a coupon bruh. On their first four trips into the red zone they had to settle for field goals and even wet the bed on a fourth down with 3:44 left to play and still won!

Purdue’s gotta be linin’ up takin’ turns kickin’ themselves in the butt for not walkin’ outta the join with the “W” because they let one get away from them. Nebraska eventually wore a boy down and the Purdue defense had nothin’ left in the tank.

The Cornhuskers controlled the time of possession by darn near 9 minutes but they only managed 40 yards rushin’! Wheredeydodatat? Purdue had 199 yards rushin’ and held on to the ball for less time. Will somebody holler at the time keeper because that makes no sense.

Nebraska’s Tanner Lee went to work on a boy puttin’ up career highs finishin’ 32 of 50 for 471 yards and two touchdowns. Then the dun looked like Joe Montana goin’ 70 yards in 68 seconds with no timeouts to win it. Unlimited Cornflakes for that dun this week.

The Boilermakers started the season lookin’ like some G’s out of the projects about to take over the neighborhood. Now they’ve lost three straight includin’ a dull road loss to Rutgers. Nobody’s trippin’ on the “L” they took at Wisconsin because it’s Wisconsin bruh. They aren’t ready to beat teams like that but Rutgers and havin’ their stinky feet on Nebraska’s throats for three quarters and losin’ are tough pills to swallow.

Well it’s back to the drawin’ board this week with dull Illinois on the schedule at the crib. If they lose that one Pete the Boilermaker may have to line up at wide out and somebody will have to be assigned to throwin’ the World’s Biggest Drum out onto the field to trip a boy goin’ in for any touchdowns. As a matter of fact, put that into the game plan this week. Drastic measures are called for drastic times. I’m just sayin’!

Jeff Brohm’s done a helluva job of changin’ the culture in West Lafayette and now they’ve got to just get over the hump. They’ve gotta win the winnable games and they’ve got to stop allowin’ the receivin’ corp to eat popcorn on the sideline. Talk about butter fingers! Boyz were droppin’ balls like classes the first week of school. Gotta clean that type of foolishness up. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dip: verb – to leave

2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

3) Dull: adjective – to describe something as bein’ terrible, something that makes you sick with disgust because it’s so stupid to even think of.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
