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...

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. Last week, the defense forced four turnovers and kept the Boilermakers close enough to having a shot at beating Illinois. All they need now is a win. ''There's a...

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.

BREAKING: Boilermakers Score Points

Yes, that headline is a bit sarcastic, but the Boilermakers made their way not only into the red zone today, but into the end zone a couple of times. Granted, one was in the final minute (again) but perhaps notable about that is that Austin Appleby got some fourth quarter snaps and tossed that last minute 44 yard TD to Danny Anthrop on fourth down (both Appleby and Anthrop are good...

Purdue coach Darrell Hazell expected more than this Saturday. He watched freshman quarterback, Danny Etling, get beaten up again. He saw the running game stopped cold again.

Braxton Miller threw for 233 yards and four touchdowns and backup Kenny Guiton added another TD pass and two more...

Carlos Hyde is athletic. This game was never going to be close, but Purdue did themselves no favors. We weren’t even a full minute into the game when Doran Grant returned Danny Etling’s interception to the house to put Ohio State up 7-0. Purdue proceeded to go three and out on their next possession but a crappy punt gave Ohio State the ball in Purdue’s territory. Two plays...
