Darrell Hazell inspires confidence

Today was the Big Ten media day for the Purdue Boilermakers and Minnesota Golden Gophers. The Gophers are on the upswing and Jerry Kill was enthusiastic but managed to temper expectations a bit. A lot of work to do, etc. Purdue is terrible and everyone knows it. Let’s go ahead and watch Darrell Hazell grasp at straws! Hazell happy with the team's character and work ethic. For...

Big Ten Previews, Pt. 1: Purdue Boilermakers

I get the feeling that as long as head coach Darrell Hazel is posting 1-11 records, this preview will begin pretty much the same way every year . . . questioning the wisdom behind firing previous head coach Danny Hope. In Hope’s four seasons as engineer, the Boilermakers went 5-7 (2009), 4-8 (2010), 7-6 (2011), [&hellip No visits yet The post Big Ten Previews, Pt. 1: Purdue...

Purdue Alumni Game Set for Aug 2

The second Purdue alumni basketball game will be held on Saturday, August 2 at noon in Mackey Arena. I guess that’s when the A/C will be installed (*rim shot*). Tickets will be just $10 in the lower section, $5 upper general admission and I believe students can get a ticket apiece for free. Travis and @BoilerBall have the deets on who will be showing up (and there is a nice variety...

Big Ten Breakdown: Purdue Boilermakers Full Preview

Purdue head coach Darrell Hazell's first year in West Lafayette yielded decidedly unimpressive results. The Boilers went 1-11 overall, were winless in conference, and ranked 121st in terms of both national scoring offense and scoring offense. The defense was only minimally better, ranking 113th in scoring defense and 116th in total defense.It is evident that Hazell is taking...

Isaac Haas Shops at Big & Tall Stores

The attached photo caused some ripples on the tweetermachine over the weekend, as Purdue fans noted that yes, AJ Hammons is indeed in this photo and no, AJ isn’t sitting on a stool or something. Isaac Haas is just that massive. While I would like to caution everybody to remember that Haas is going to be a freshman and we all know how polished incoming freshman usually are, particularly...

Know the Badgers foe: Purdue

  This is the ninth in a 12-week Friday series looking at the Wisconsin football team's 2014 opponents. There's really no other way to put it: Purdue's football program was all kinds of awful in coach Darrell Hazell's first season in charge last year. The Boilermakers finished 1-11, including 0-8 in Big Ten play. They lost by an average of more than three touchdowns...

Purdue Elects To Drop Football; Ross-Ade To Be Torn Down Immediately

In a move many Purdue fans find themselves apathetic about, the university has elected to drop football as a varsity sport effective immediately. The move caught many by surprise. “It’s a tough blow,” said sophomore QB Danny Etling. “It seems especially contradictory to the ‘One Brick Higher’ mantra around here.” Coach Hazell was more philosophical. “Any time you...

Purdue Turning The “P” On Its Football Helmet Into A Mosaic Of Fan Photos

The Purdue Boilermakers have apparently come up with a very interesting new way to get more fan interaction. Wednesday afternoon, the school unveiled a new campaign to get supporters to sign up for a “VIP card” before the season begins. How? By promising them that a photo of them will be featured on the team’s football helmets in 2014. No, really. Acccording to the photo below...

No. 108 Purdue Boilermakers season preview

It was a year of sorrow in West Lafayette as the Boilermakers failed to win a single Big Ten Conference game. The lone victory of the season came against Indiana State and first year head coach Darrell Hazell was surely thinking about the glory days of 2012 when he led Kent State to the a MAC Championship appearance and a trip to the GoDaddy.com Bowl.

Badger Opposition Research: 2014 Purdue post-spring edition

Last we looked over an opponent in our post-spring research it was the first time we’ve laid eyes on the Terps of Maryland in a serious way. Today is much different, as we take a trip to the wonderfully horrible world of West Lafayette, Ind. That’s right, the 1-11 and 0 for the Big Ten Purdue Boilermakers are up next. At least there is nowhere else to go but up in head coach...

Purdue center A.J. Hammons will return for junior season

The 2013-14 season was a disappointing one for Purdue, with Matt Painter’s Boilermakers finishing 15-17 overall and 5-13 in Big Ten play. Among the players expected to lead the way next season for a group that hopes to turn things around is center A.J. Hammons, who on Wednesday announced that he’ll be returning to West Lafayette for his junior season. As a sophomore Hammons...

Purdue C A.J. Hammons makes correct decision about NBA draft

Yes, as frustrating and inconsistent as A.J. Hammons has been, he’ll probably be drafted. Likely even in the first round in ’15. This year…no chance.

2014 Black Gold Game Wrap

I’ve been going to Purdue’s Spring game for a long time…but I don’t think I can remember one in which there was so little offense on display. If a defensive end wasn’t in the backfield harassing a QB, a WR was dropping a pass. Etling and Appleby started for the gold and black teams, respectively…but neither really showed any separation from the other. But, the running...
