PURDUE RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Great Purdue eBay Adventure

Hi. It’s been a while, and I’ve missed you all dearly. This summer has brought some basketball and football recruiting news, demolished seats in Ross-Ade, the construction of a backyard patio setup in the south end zone, pictures of 7-foot centers looking hilariously massive, a quarterback contest that seemed to be won by default, a super entertaining alumni basketball game ...

Appleby v. Etling Winner?

You all know by now that Etling was named the starter yesterday by Shoop/Hazell…I don’t have a huge problem with it, but am not sure this was ever a competition. Perhaps the word competition isn’t quite right…it was really just a test. This test was put in place to see if the incumbent starter could be knocked off by overwhelming evidence and force by the backup, and according...

Danny Etling named Purdue's starting quarterback

Danny Etling's work is just beginning. He was named Purdue's starting quarterback Monday. It wasn't a surprise. Etling was the No. 1 quarterback after spring practice and didn't do anything to lose the job during training camp. Austin Appleby was given every chance to move past Etling, but coach Darrell Hazell opted for the Terre Haute native. Hazell even delayed...

Purdue names Danny Etling starting QB, but what does it mean?

Sorry if you had odds on sophomore Austin Appleby beating out Danny Etling for the starting quarterback job at Purdue, it was a fool’s bet anyway. On Monday, head coach Darrell Hazell announced what we all expected this fall — sophomore Danny Etling would be the starting quarterback when the Boilermakers take on Western Michigan to star the season. Etling started the final seven...

Purdue picks Etling over Appleby as starting QB

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Danny Etling will be Purdue's starting quarterback when Western Michigan visits Aug. 30. Coach Darrell Hazell made the announcement Monday. Etling, a sophomore, took over as the starter five games into last season and played his best football at the end of the season. But the incumbent starter still had to fend off challenges from sophomore Austin Appleby...

Purdue, Virginia add recruits for ’15

A flurry of high-major commitments went down on Saturday, capped by the Virginia Cavaliers and Purdue Boilermakers each picking up an important pledge. Virginia got on the board in the 2015 class with a commitment from 6′-9″ post Jarred Reuter of Brewster Academy (NH). It was a quick turnaround for Reuter, who last Sunday named the Iowa Hawkeyes, Providence ...

Purdue safety Taylor Richards suspended two games

Purdue's safety position will undergo some re-shuffling the first two games of the 2014 season. Senior Taylor Richards will serve a two-game suspension following his alcohol-related arrest in December, coach Darrell Hazell said during an interview Thursday. Also, safety Landon Feichter is expected to miss the first half of the Aug. 30 season opener against Western Michigan...

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...

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...

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 [...]
