Twitter: Purdue QB Rob Henry apologizes for poor play

There were few positives to take from Purdue’s 42-7 season-opening loss at Cincinnati, and Purdue quarterback Rob Henry more than accepted his share of the blame for the performance. Hours after the game, Henry took to Twitter to apologize to the Purdue community and tell them that he was taking a break from Twitter “because there obviously needs to be a lot more work done.”

Henry went 18-of-35 for 161 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in the loss. He did have a rushing touchdown, Purdue’s lone score on the day.

Here are Henry’s tweets:
