Sometimes the picture truly is worth a thousand words. Iowa Hawkeyes fans were not happy about their team completely imploding at home against the Purdue Boilermakers, so they allegedly threw cans of Bud Light on the field. And Purdue offensive lineman Greg Long decided to have some fun.
In the most badass moment of the game, Purdue offensive lineman Greg Long pours a can of @budlight over his face after a fan tossed the beer onto the field in @BoilerFootball's 24-7 win over No. 2 Iowa today in Iowa City. pic.twitter.com/ymZUxWhP2V— Bryon Houlgrave (@bryonhoulgrave) October 16, 2021
Imagine getting beat up and down the field all day as the No. 2 team in the country at home and just as you’re about to line up for another play, you see the opposing offensive lineman throw this on himself. There’s only so many losses you can take on one football field in a day.
Before you ask, we checked and Long originally enrolled at UTEP in 2016, so it appears he’s old enough to enjoy an adult beverage in celebration of Purdue’s eighth all-time win over a Top 2 AP team while unranked.
Iowa’s defense, which was considered its strength, got torched all day. Purdue QB Aiden O’Connell had plenty of time to dial up some deep shots, thanks in part to the work of Long and the offensive line. If this is the result of allowing college football stadiums to sell alcohol during games, I’m not sure how many people are opposed.
