PURDUE RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

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...

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...

That one time Purdue fans got catfished about AJ Hammons and the NBA Draft

Sit down, young lads and lasses. Let Uncle Aneesh tell you a tale about how a fake Twitter account can crap out rumors like nobody’s business. Enter: Jeremy Smith, aka Jeremy SmithNBAHoops, aka @JSmithNBAHoops. Self-described as an “NBA Hoops Writer/Draft Analyst” from New York City.   First, this: Purdue’s AJ Hammons will declare for the NBA draft and will forgo his two...

COMMIT: 2014 PG PJ Thompson to Purdue

Shortly after receiving a scholarship offer from the Purdue Boilermakers, Brebeuf Jesuit (IN) lead guard P.J. Thompson pulled the trigger and pledged. Regarding his decision, Thompson posted to his Twitter account,”After a long process, I have officially decided to be a Boiler! Excited to be apart of the Purdue basketball family!” An in-state prospect, Thompson averaged ...

Do the Purdue Boilermakers have any NCAA Tournament hopes?

The Purdue Boilermakers (13-6, 3-3 in the Big Ten) NCAA Tournament boat is not sunk yet. However, it took on massive water Tuesday night at Northwestern in a game that barely legally still qualified as college basketball. That double overtime loss at NU was as pleasant to look at as a Kristen Schaal (“Daily Show” correspondent, “30 Rock” the evil, psycho NBC page) pictorial...

Purdue is having trouble spelling on their scoreboard

Purdue is known for being a really good educational institution. Whoever let this guy make the scoreboard hopefully isn’t a Purdue Boilermaker. They misspelled the word “wheels.” The scoreboard reads “Thank you Purdue Boilermakers Whels Club” which is probably not what they meant. Purdue is taking on the Iowa Hawkeyes today. Hopefully they football better […]

Cornhusker Preview Part 6 of 12: Purdue Boilermakers

It seems like we chronicle a lot of coaching transitions in this preview, and frankly, that’s because college football coaching is a thankless job. You get about two years, maybe three or four if you’re lucky, to accomplish some major changes or you’re out on your can. And once again, we examine yet another opponent (Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)The post Cornhusker Preview...

Purdue Boilermakers fans make awful rap video

These Purdue Boilermakers fans/students worked together to create this truly terrible rap video about their school.  I don’t know about you guys, but this video deters me from wanting to go there more than it makes me wish I could go there.  The original got taken down, so the one here may not sound as good, but it gets the point across.  This video is the type of video that...

Purdue lands first ’14 commit, Dakota Mathias

The Purdue Boilermakers are on the board in the 2014 class, after landing a verbal commitment on Sunday from 6′-5″ Dakota Mathias of Elida (OH). Mathias, who played in the Spiece Run-n-Slam over the weekend, told the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette during the tournament that Purdue was his leader, and made that status official a short time later [...]
