Hey gang! Anything unusual or awesome happen to you on social media today? Johnny Manziel issued an obscene gesture towards the Washington bench yesterday. Dan Snyder says it’s offensive to Native Americans. Byron Buxton will be sitting for the rest of the year.  Danny Etling will be the starting QB for Purdue this year.

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...

Danny Etling named Purdue's starting quarterback

Danny Etling's work is just beginning. He was named Purdue's starting quarterback Monday. It wasn't a surprise. Etling was the No. 1 quarterback after spring practice and didn't do anything to lose the job during training camp. Austin Appleby was given every chance to move past Etling, but coach Darrell Hazell opted for the Terre Haute native. Hazell even delayed...

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...

Boilermakers looking for fresh start in 2014

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Darrell Hazell is tired of reliving the past. After months of poring through game tapes to figure out what went wrong in 2013, the second-year Purdue coach came to this conclusion: It's time for everyone to forget about the last season and focus on the future. ''I think this is the time where you rip off the rearview mirror and you take a look at what...

Purdue still waiting to announce starting QB

WEST LAFAYETEE, Ind. (AP) Purdue football fans may have to wait until after Saturday's scrimmage to learn who this year's starting quarterback will be. Danny Etling started the final seven games last season and threw for 1,690 yards and 10 touchdowns as a freshman, but he is being pushed by another sophomore, Austin Appleby, and highly touted freshman David Blough.

Know the Badgers foe: Purdue

  This is the ninth in a 12-week Friday series looking at the Wisconsin football team's 2014 opponents. There's really no other way to put it: Purdue's football program was all kinds of awful in coach Darrell Hazell's first season in charge last year. The Boilermakers finished 1-11, including 0-8 in Big Ten play. They lost by an average of more than three touchdowns...

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...

No. 108 Purdue Boilermakers season preview

It was a year of sorrow in West Lafayette as the Boilermakers failed to win a single Big Ten Conference game. The lone victory of the season came against Indiana State and first year head coach Darrell Hazell was surely thinking about the glory days of 2012 when he led Kent State to the a MAC Championship appearance and a trip to the GoDaddy.com Bowl. The Purdue offense failed...

Badger Opposition Research: 2014 Purdue post-spring edition

Last we looked over an opponent in our post-spring research it was the first time we’ve laid eyes on the Terps of Maryland in a serious way. Today is much different, as we take a trip to the wonderfully horrible world of West Lafayette, Ind. That’s right, the 1-11 and 0 for the Big Ten Purdue Boilermakers are up next. At least there is nowhere else to go but up in head coach...

Getting to know Purdue football commit Cedric Dale

Cedric Dale is a 5’8″ cornerback that has committed to play his college football at Purdue. The Boilermakers were able to get him to flip his commitment to them from BYU, and are very excited to bring him on board. He is rated as a two-star prospect, but does have great ability and quickness in the secondary. Purdue needs secondary help so he will be a very nice pickup. Dale...

Blough Officially a Boiler

Unlike a verbal, a signed letter of intent is truly a binding agreement...David Blough, a 6'1" 187lb​. QB from Carrollton, TX became the first Boiler in the class of 2014 on Monday afternoon. He'll enroll in January, as did Danny Etling a year ago. To be fair, Blough's verbal agreement was as solid as stone...just like Etling and Appleby's. All three...

Bottomed Out? Boilers Hammered In Bloomington

The Boilers were pounding again today, this time by the worst team that’s pummeled them yet, as Indiana took the Boilers to the woodshed, 56-36 – nearly reversing the score from last year exactly. Purdue was gashed immediately and often by IU’s Stephen Houston – who had something like 70 yards and two TDs on his first seven carries – and Tre Roberson, who rushed for...

His team has scored 37 points over the last two weeks, after producing only 21 in its previous four games.

Boilers Lose In Happy Valley -- This Is Not A Recording

The Boilermakers continued their long-standing tradition of almost never winning in the state of Pennsylvania, as the good guys fell 45-21 to the Nittany Kittens of Nappy Valley. Wait, what's that, you say? The Boilers scored points? They sure did, clearing 14 points for the first time since 9/28 vs NIU and only the fourth time this season.
