Boilers Soil Selves in Indy; Crushed by Irish, 94-63

If you turned off the Purdue game with perhaps 7 or 8 minutes remaining and the Boilers down about 15, don’t worry you weren’t alone! The Boilers themselves quit at that point, too! It’s one thing to lose a game to a good team (even if that team is ND). It’s quite another to get humbled like the Boilers did in a game that was very competitive for the first 15 minutes. Not...

Purdue AD backs Hazell after another poor season

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Two seasons into a six-year contract that pays him $2 million a year, Purdue's Darrell Hazell has compiled a 4-20 record, including 1-15 in the Big Ten.

Maui Wrap-Up and Looking Forward

Last year Purdue embarrassed themselves at the Old Spice Classic in Orlando. First, they had a very poor half against #5 Oklahoma State, played well enough in the second half to make it interesting, but ultimately was unable to come away with the win. That team proved itself to be some combination of mentally soft and immature, as evident by the technical foul and the flagrant foul...

College athletics recruiting has taken some very interesting turns over the last decade and the Purdue Boilermakers are seeking to continue the tireless revolution.

Big 10 Basketball Preview: #13 Purdue Boilermakers

Here is what I wrote about Purdue (more like Pur-don't, amirite?) last season:I'm not really sure what's going on here with Purdue lately.  If this season goes the way I'm expecting that'll make a second straight sub-par season and a second straight year missing the NCAA Tournament after making it six straight years (2 Sweet Sixteens).  Looking at this year's freshman class and...

Purdue Boilermakers football: Predicting the 2014 schedule

Some would say last season was like ripping a Band-Aid off, others a bad nightmare as the Darrell Hazell era got off to a 1-11 start for the Purdue Boilermakers. That was 11 losses to FBS programs, with the lone win against FCS opponent Indiana State. Slow clap for that, but just because it was a horror start doesn’t mean things can’t turn around quickly.

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...

Big Ten Previews, Pt. 1: Purdue Boilermakers

The defense was only minimally better, ranking 113th in scoring defense and 116th in total defense.It is evident that Hazell is taking...
