The Non-Exhibition, Exhibition Games: What We’ve Learned

319, 315, 351. Those are the three KenPom ranks of Purdue’s opponents thus far. I was tempted to write a recap of the Grambling State game, but decided against it because a.) They are the worst Division-I team according the Ken Pom and b.) There isn’t much to say about a 52-point win. Really, there isn’t much to learn about any of Purdue opponents thus far, so I’ll just...

When Playing Out the String Matters

So after another bye, the Boilers should be nice and rested and ready for their two remaining games. A couple of weeks ago, many of us were (cautiously) saying, “Wow, with how bad Northwestern and IU look, Purdue can realistically go 5-7.” While 5-7 is nothing to boast about, it’s a tremendous step forward from the noncompetitive, 1-11 team from a season ago. However, since...

Purdue vs Northwestern: sneaky meaningful game preview

The Purdue Boilermakers versus the Northwestern Wildcats is a “sneaky meaningful” and “sneaky compelling” game. All season long we’ve heard about how each program is moving in a certain direction. And that would be in opposite directions. There is no doubt that Purdue has improved this season; but how much? If they think they’ve really surpassed Northwestern in the Big...

Purdue is a sleeper in all senses

Via I mentioned this briefly in my Big Ten prediction post, but I feel good about Purdue’s chances for the 2014-15 season. This runs counter to what Eric had said (he picked them to finish 11th, though he said that of the bottom 4 teams, they stood the best chance of making a jump) and most notably, it runs counter to what the Big Ten’s own beat writers had...

College basketball is back, and what better way to pump out #content for the short attention span public than twenty word player season previews! Most of the people who get paid to write in-depth Big Ten analysis don’t even have Kendall Stephens in Purdue’s starting lineup, so these can’t possibly be worse than some others out there. Also, this seems like a good time to shamelessly...

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...

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. Don’t believe me?...

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...
