Purdue Football – Spring Situation

The Black beat the Gold, 28-23, last Saturday in Ross-Ade Stadium before thousands tens of screaming fans. Actually, as you no doubt have seen, the largest true cheers were reserved for AJ’s nifty announcement on the field that he was coming back for his fourth year in that same Black and Gold. But what was decided in a football sense on Saturday? Surely, the Boilers have the QB...

5 Things We Learned During Last Week’s 5 Big Ten Spring Games

Five Big Ten football teams put out their best efforts (or at least that was supposed to be the case) this past weekend in annual spring games. Illinois, Indiana, Ohio State, Penn State and Purdue all took to their respective home fields in hopes of showcasing some impressive talent in front of hardy crowds. That meant a lot of game action to sift through and the near impossible...

Opposition Research: Purdue Q&A with Boiled Sports

When we’ve got matchups inside the Bloguin family, it means time to reach out and see what’s going on in there neck of the woods (in the case of Indiana whatever flat land you can see). So, this week we’re lucky to speak with the humorous and informative (allegedly) folks from Purdue site, Boiled Sports. They’ve been friends of ours for a few years now and joined the Bloguin...

Halfway Home

It’s kind of hard to believe, but Purdue has played six games and it officially at the halfway point of the season. They’re 3-3 at this point, which means they’re also halfway home to a bowl ga—okay, I’ll stop now, I just had a lot of celebratory brews this weekend. So what have we learned? Well, as I said, Purdue is 3-3. And for all the angst that has surrounded this program...

Fire the Cannon! The Illinois Predicto!

Purdue plays a rivalry game this weekend, and as Dave details below, they’ve played many, many times – and for a trophy of sorts! And yet, does anyone care? Is there any animosity? Are there any memorable games between these two? I go back 20 years as a Purdue fan and I really can’t think of any defining moments where these games meant much to us as fans. And yet here we are...

Illinois hopes to extend Purdue's struggles

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Illinois coach Tim Beckman was asked this week if Saturday's game against Purdue is a must win. ''Every game's a must win,'' Beckman said before quickly moving on. This one, though, may be more so than most for the Illini (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten). The Boilermakers (2-3, 0-1) are probably the most clearly beatable opponent still on the schedule for the Illini. Get...

Is Saturday a Must-Win?

J talked about how it’s probably time for Purdue to mix things up a bit…there’s little doubt about that. But the framework, the constants of this program are here and everyone needs to work around those. What are those constants? Darrell Hazell is a steady guy. He wears the same thing on game days…and at practice. He tries to show an even temperament…he tries to give players...

Purdue keeps searching for answers on offense

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) The Purdue Boilermakers are searching for answers and trying to find solutions for their struggling offense. What's so hard? Move the football. Make plays. Put together drives and score touchdowns. But coming up with the answers isn't as easy as it might seem. ''They are simple, but they're not simple,'' coach Darrell Hazell said. ''I mean, you see the...

So What Now?

As competition improves, Purdue seems to regress back to their offensively-inept ways from last year. The warning signs have been there, of course. Only winning by single-digits over Western Michigan, being manhandled by Central (seriously, they lost by three touchdowns at home to a really marginal MAC team), being a complete no show in the second half of three consecutive games...

OMHR Spots Purdue a Lead; Wins Anyway

Purdue winless skid in the Big Ten will inch at least another seven days closer to the 700 day mark, as the Boilers were unable to overcome a somewhat listless performance from Iowa today and lost on homecoming 24-10. An agreement was clearly reached between the two hated rivals prior to kickoff, as the Hawkeyes spotted Purdue an early 10 point lead. Frankie Williams continued to...

Through the first four games, Iowa has twice rallied for fourth-quarter victories after trailing by 10 points during the second half.

The Boilermakers already have won twice - one more than in 2013 - and have beaten an FBS school, something they did not achieve during coach Darrell Hazell's first season as coach. Next on the list? How about beating Iowa on Saturday during homecoming to give Hazell his first Big Ten victory? Hazell made no attempt to downplay...

Boilers Go Green; Give us a Glimpse of the Future?

There were so many empty seats today in Ross-Ade that as I texted all of my pals before the game, we all told each other that there was plenty of room nearby in each group of seats (in case they wanted to…you know…stop by and stay a while). But my Dad and his pal won the day, so we watched with them…and to our chagrin, our Boilers blasted out of the gate to grab a 7-0, 14-0...

Purdue beats SIU 35-13 and that’s all you should know

Well, Purdue beat Southern Illinois 35-13, and it was by theoretically a handful of points, and if you didn’t watch the second half and just looked at the box score it was a successful outing…so, can we just stop the postgame analysis there? *checking my earpiece* The bosses say no. Sigh. Ok, let’s start with the good stuff, otherwise known as the entire first half. Purdue...

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) A week ago as Purdue prepared to play Notre Dame, sophomore quarterback Danny Etling was fighting to keep his job. After solidifying his role by completing 27 of 40 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns in the 30-14 loss to the Fighting Irish, Etling is ready to take the next step: more yards per completion on Saturday when the Boilermakers (1-2) host...

As with many years, the disappointment/afterglow following the Notre Dame contest can take many forms. As with many Boilermaker teams of recent years, it’s hard to know what’s going to happen next.
