Winning feels good. I don’t really care that it was Rutgers. I don’t really care that it took three overtimes. I don’t really care that I had to stay up until midnight to watch the finish. I went to bed feeling . . . maybe not happy, but relieved.

Remember, remember, the 23rd of September . . . On September 23, 2017, quarterback Wilton Speight’s back got broken on a dirty hit by Purdue. In stepped backup John O’Korn, who completed 69.2% of his passes for 270 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception for an offense that had been disappointing up to that point. He was the savior! The following week he threw 3 interceptions against Michigan State and would finish with 2 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on the year. The Purdue game was Fool’s Gold. So I have that in the back of my mind going into the next section.
