Purdue basketball completed a truly remarkable turnaround after a 5 loss nonconference slate, finishing 12-6 in the Big Ten and securing Matt Painter’s first 20 win season of the post-Baby Boilers era.

Purdue Spring Football 2015 Preview: Transition is no longer excuse for Hazell’s team

(Over the next few weeks we’ll be digging in to each Big Ten team as spring football gets closer) After a disastrous start to the Darrell Hazell era in 2013, the Purdue Boilermakers made small strides forward in 2014.
