LOOK: Huge sinkhole surfaces in end zone of Purdue's football field
This might be a bad omen for the Boilermakers, which are coming off a 50-7 loss at Maryland
Nope, this isn't an omen for anything. Not at all.
It appears as though a sinkhole is forming in the south end zone of Ross-Ade Stadium. According to the Purdue's sports turf crew's Twitter account, a water line broke over the weekend, causing a pump to continue running. The results were some flooding in the south portion of the stadium.

Heres the little guy that caused all the mess. Stress on the pipe caused a clean break. Thrust blocks now used there pic.twitter.com/uZXymydtD5— Purdue Sports Turf (@PUSportsTurf) October 4, 2016
Normally, field flooding is no big deal, especially when the team is on the road this week like the Boilermakers are against Illinois. Purdue will be back in action at home on Oct. 15 against Iowa.
Still, I can't shake the feeling that a sink hole in Purdue's stadium is a warning sign of sorts. Like maybe the end times are near.
