Purdue Basketball Wants You to Pee on Your Girlfriend’s Phone

The Purdue Boilermakers are challenging their fans to an interesting proposition. No, not really but kinda really. The first 1500 fans for their game against Iowa on Saturday will receive a Purdue “P” logo on their phone, but the first 15 seconds of the promotional video implies another form of pee.

Michael, Andy, and Aneesh are back to talk about Purdue’s first four Big Ten games.

Your boys at the Purdue Basketball Beat tackle all that, along with the...

Game Preview: Gophers vs. Purdue

Well here we go.  A month's worth of crappy games have gone by with the Gophers managing to avoid a crippling loss, which is something you can't say for most of the rest of the Big Ten, which is good.  Despite the horrific schedule the RPI sits at 69, a reasonable enough number that could easily rise into at-large territory with a good Big Ten season.  To kick off the conference...

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 unveils patriot helmets for game against Wisconsin Badgers

The Purdue Boilermakers are attempting hard to compete with the helmet game of its rivals in Bloomington, Ind. but it appears they are also doing it with altruistic intentions. Earlier this season the Boilermakers stood up to cancer and wore neon yellow stickers on their helmets. On Thursday, it was revealed that Purdue will honor the military with a special helmet on Military Appreciation...

Purdue Football is Trying Bold Recruiting Tactics

College athletics recruiting has taken some very interesting turns over the last decade and the Purdue Boilermakers are seeking to continue the tireless revolution. Darrell Hazell’s staff sent a letter to Bloomington (IN) South High School senior offensive tackle Kamran Beitvashahi. However, instead of including a unique note to the in-state recruit, they elected to send him...

Purdue pops early guard commit C.J. Walker

The Purdue Boilermakers won an early recruiting battle Tuesday, as 6′-0″ junior C.J. Walker announced his commitment to Purdue over Butler and others. Walker, of Indianapolis Tech (IN), is considered by some to be the top 2016 point guard in Indiana.

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...

Someone Is Trying To Trade Purdue To Another Conference On The Columbus, Ohio Craigslist Board

The Big Ten is not having a great afternoon, with Nebraska, Penn State, and Illinois struggling with McNeese State, Akron, and Western Kentucky, respectively. However, no one in the conference is having a worse afternoon than the lowly Purdue Boilermakers, who trail Central Michigan, a MAC school that struggled against Chattanooga last weekend, at home 31-17 midway through the fourth...

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

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.

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 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...
