The Predicto Returns, 2015 Begins, Marshall Awaits

Believe it or not, we now begin coverage of our tenth season of Purdue football. Aneesh was just in the 4th grade when we got started, and Dave and boilerdowd had hair. Ah, it was a magical time. And in that time we’ve now seen three separate head coaches of Purdue football. In our time as Purdue fans, we’ve seen even more and it brings us to a weird spot – our alma mater has...

New faces in the Purdue backfield as season nears

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) When Purdue begins its season this weekend at Marshall, two running backs who have yet to carry the ball in a college game will get the bulk of the playing time. Sophomore D.J. Knox, a special teams player in 2014, will start at running back Sunday. Freshman Markell Jones will be the backup. With Akeem Hunt and Raheem Mostert, Purdue featured a hit-or-miss...

Older Center Prospects Can Be The Exception To The Rule

Guys with the physical tools of A.J. Hammons aren't supposed to stay in college for four seasons. At 7'0, 260 with a 7'3 wingspan, the Purdue senior is the rare NCAA big man who doesn't have to get any bigger or stronger to be able to bang with the biggest centers in the NBA. What's even more impressive is how well he carries all that weight. Hammons isn't Andre Drummond but he's...

Scrimmage notes

I’ve read what you have- whether the Journal and Courier or Gold and Black…and listened to what you’ve heard- whether via the BTN’s scant coverage of our Boilers or Indy and Fort Wayne affiliates talking about our Boilers. But earlier today, I finally took the 1.5 hour journey to watch our Boilers play with themselves in a scrimmage…that is against themselves. As LBD surmised...

Boilermakers doing more than just talking heading into 2015

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Darrell Hazell sees a difference around Purdue this season. He hears it, too. For the first time under their third-year coach, the Boilermakers are walking and talking like a team ready to make a move in the Big Ten West. ''I think our guys are starting to talk the way they're supposed to talk, supporting each other, and making sure that they're a very...

Purdue gets commitment from 3-star PG Carsen Edwards

The Purdue Boilermakers haven’t had a very competitive basketball program since Robbie Hummel left town, but last season the team showed some major life. One of their big issues looking into the future is point guard depth and they were able to get a big commitment from 2016 point guard Carsen Edwards. Edwards is the first commitment that the Boilermakers have received for their...

The disrespect is like a cozy robe.

Get on board, these guys are driving the train. It’s funny, our Boilers made a tiny bit of noise last winter when  February run helped them dig out of a hole that they had made for themselves in December. Purdue never reached the top-25…but they beat some good teams along the way and reminded us what it feels like to have fun in a gymnasium in the dead of winter. On top of...

Is Austin Appleby the answer at QB for Purdue Boilermakers?

The Purdue Boilermakers are heading into the 2015 season with high expectations of beginning the turnaround of their football program. One of the biggest question marks surrounding the team this season is who will step up and take control of the quarterback position. Austin Appleby certainly seems to be the number one guy at this point in time after the big season that he had last...

Purdue suspends DE Gelen Robinson at least two games

The Purdue Boilermakers are hoping to begin turning around their football program this season and they look better than they have recently on paper. Unfortunately, they are still dealing with some off-the-field issues.

Purdue Boilermakers Football Preview: Predicting the 2015 season

Winning games against FBS teams was certainly a step up for the Purdue Boilermakers in 2014, but as Darrell Hazell leads his third team things need to trend dramatically upward or it could be trouble in West Lafayette. That all leads us to looking at the 2015 schedule and figuring out that answer. Other Big Ten Predictions:West – Iowa | Northwestern | Minnesota | Illinois |...

Getting High In July (On Purdue Basketball)

It’s been a while since we did an old-fashioned BS roundtable – or at least since we did one worth posting. One thing that I keep thinking about is the way that so many people already seem all in on Purdue basketball for ’15-’16, largely thanks to Swanigan coming here and, of course, AJ coming back. Obviously, we’ll do this again at the start of the season, but as you sit...

Purdue Boilermakers Football Preview: A look at the 2015 defense

Earlier today we took our Purdue Boilermakers preview from the way back machine to looking forward for a change, with a look at the offense. So, it’s only natural that after that we give the same amount of coverage to the defensive side of the ball. It’s this side that has been the somewhat bright spot of the Hazell era, but could that be changing heading in to the 2015 season...

Purdue Boilermakers Football Preview: A look at the 2015 offense

It will be year three of the Darrell Hazell era at the helm of the Purdue Boilermakers, yet if you pay attention to preseason camps it will feel eerily familiar. Questions at quarterback, running back and an offensive line still a work in progress were features of this group back in 2013. Here we are in 2015 and those same three issues face this team. That’s not exactly the sign...

Purdue Boilermakers Football Preview: Did 2014 mean progress for Hazell’s bunch?

Life after Joe Tiller hasn’t exactly been fun for the Purdue Boilermakers nation. Since Tiller left the program for retirement following the 2008 season, Purdue football has made a mess of things. So much so that it has failed to produce a winning record in a regular season of football since the Tiller era. The 2014 season wasn’t the rock bottom of year one of the Darrell Hazell...
