I liked the flyover because when he pointed the nozzles our way, it was loud. Most flyovers look cool, but only a few rock your bones.
Video Of All Varieties: Purdue
If you want some of the negative things that happened (all three of them), the official site's reel has the screen touchdown and a few others, though they're all in the excessively tight POV that shows you nothing:
I was meh about this. I prefer A10s and F15s. I know I'm a crank.
Aaaand postgame presser:
UPDATE: and-and Pre-Gaming with Pat hits the Mud Bowl:
HEY! YOU KIDS! YOU STOP GETTING DRUNK AND START SHOWING UP ON TIME.
they allowed it to take place. The technology is not exactly common. I think the world record flight is only 1,500 feet. To permit a guy to do an Elroy Jetson impersonation in front of 100,000 people on live television was a ManballS move by the AD and public safety officials.
So how are they going to top this for the Ohio game? Blackhawk helicopters with Seal Team 6 rapelling down with the game ball?
those guys are all "that was so cool" and then they start talking about smoking weed or something, ha ha, the big house is awesome!
When the public announcer has to flash a warning that the flyover will be really loud and that the audience might want to take precautions it is quite a statement in a football stadium like the Big House. I was 90 rows up and the jet 'whoosh' was distinctly and loudly clear.
The jetpack by the way is very neat but not that practical - it can only do these short hops - not enough fuel capacity for long flights. But it does have a long complex history - including murder.
I'm well aware of how Hey That's Racist accusations generally go over on comment sections here, but the faux-rapper guy in the pregaming videos is a tin of shoe polish away from being his own minstrel show, and it's kind of a bummer.
That dude might wish to think about how that act will play to the larger audience that youtube offers.
Here's a hint: It does not look good.
Martin's sack of Marve at 5:32 on the Parkinggod highlights is awesome. He beat the OL assigned to him and then shoved the running back, who goes backwards for four yards, before making the sack. Its all the RB can do to stay on his feet as he watches Martin make the sack. Total domination. +3 in my book.
Doh! Double post. Does that mean Martin gets a +6?
That guy is a remarkable offensive lineman. The play in the first video at 3:23 is almost unbelieveable. He never tips his hand, snaps the ball, and with lightning quickness is able to HOOK the 2tec DT. Dude is unreal.
On the other end of the spectrum, it's not mystery why our power running game isn't as effective as we'd like. We get a lot of stalemates at the line of scrimmage but not much forward surge (there was one particular goal line play going into the south endzone comes to mind).
Fitz looked fast as hell.
That is all.
In case you missed the early morning board post, there's a 720p MP4 torrent:
I like Devin's block on a DB on the fake jet sweep reverse. Serious team player move.
What do you have to do in the Mud Bowl to get a holding penalty?
I've been dying to see Denard run that play all year. Anything that allows him to start going north-south with space is deadly - and it got him his two longest runs of the day.
Since Rocketman isn't a death creator being trotted out as a natural part of our non-death creating Saturday football games.
