PURDUE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Etling, Purdue hold off Western Michigan 43-34

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Danny Etling passed for two touchdowns and ran for another Saturday, helping Purdue snap a 12-game losing streak against FBS competition with a 43-34 victory against Western Michigan. Two Jarvion Franklin touchdown runs gave the visiting Broncos a 14-10 second-quarter lead, but the Boilermakers -1-11 in 2013 - scored the first half's final 13 points...

#WEWANTBAMA: Purdue beats a real football team!

Swamy’s Internal Monologue: Hmmm…the guys asked me to take this post-game. Should I talk about how mediocre we looked? Should I remain realistic, and talk about how shaky Etling looked in his second year starting? Should I be concerned that our entire strategy revolves around the extraordinary abilities of Mostert and Hunt, while no other aspect of the team looks even average...

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?...

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...

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, 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...

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...
