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.

Who wins: 2009-2010 vs 2015-2016 Purdue Basketball?

Ok. I get it. This is a ridiculous thought exercise, because that 2010 team has three jerseys in the rafters, one of the best leaders in Purdue history, and chemistry out the wazoo. But that 2009-2010 team was the best Baby Boilers team, and Robbie got this question during his delightful Campus Insiders analysis segment, so let’s take a deep deep dive here. For the record, we...
