Move over Miami (FL). Another well-known program has fallen to your level.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers lost 55-45 to the Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday afternoon in front of a Purdue crowd that appeared to be filling less than half of Ross–Ade Stadium. It is Purdue's first Big Ten win since October 4th of last season, when they beat Illinois.
Under first-year coach Mike Riley, the Huskers are 3-6 overall and have a conference record of 1-4 and with the conference loss, Purdue is no longer in the basement of the West division in the Big Ten.
Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett is suspended for next weeks game against Minnesota after he was arrested for driving while intoxicated early Saturday morning at a Columbus police checkpoint.
Barrett, 20, should be suspended for two-games under the athletic departments drug and alcohol policy, but that apparently doesn't apply to Barrett's incident.
NBC's Today crew celebrated Halloween on its Friday show, and in the process, ruined Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang for most of us.
I can understand the intent. The Peanuts Movie is hitting theaters next week, so why not do a unique group costume like this?
It's a mixed bag. Half of the costumes are odd-looking, but fine. The other half, especially with the makeup and bald caps, makes half of the Today cast look really creepy. The creepiest ones have to be Al Roker as Charlie Brown, Carson Daly as Linus, Kathie Lee Gifford as Woodstock and Meredith Viera as Pigpen. Matt Lauer as Lucy is a wild card.
See for yourself...
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski showed up on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and came dressed as the Master Chief from "Halo 5: Guardians" and in the process, was promoting the newest game in the "Halo" series. Sure. Gronkowski plays on the Patriots, and most people who aren't fans of the team hate them. But how can you hate Gronk? Answer: You can't.
I'm still waiting to hear Colbert's solution to bring peace to the Middle East. Too bad those trick-or-treaters interrupted him.
