(Ed. note: This is the first part in our summer long preview series'. Each week we'll explore a specific team in our "Countdown to Kickoff" series, starting things off will be the Purdue Boilermakers)
Ahh, the Danny Hope era - its safe to say no one will ever be nostalgic for the days that he roamed the sidelines at Ross-Aide Stadium and 2012 was a perfect...
Spring football is officially over and that means we continue our look at what went down across the conference this spring in our "Exit Interview" series. Up today are the Purdue Boilermakers, one of two teams making a coaching change this season and the only one to do so after firing a coach.
Out is Danny Hope and in is Darrell Hazel. So, what's new in...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Purdue came into this season talking big.
Three games into the conference schedule, those thoughts have quietly slipped away. The Boilermakers are still searching for their first Big Ten win and need a dramatic turnaround to salvage a season that has gone from promising to worrisome in less than a month.

I’m on a business trip (down in SEC country, no less, so hopefully I can find a bar willing to turn to the Big Ten Network) and haven’t had much spare time the past couple of days, so this is going to be a bit shorter than usual and I apologize for that. Check back around lunch time today for a more in-depth breakdown from our M&GB Staff Predictions. Next week we will resume...

The Irish are scorching hot right now and while they it was just Navy’s defense, it could go a long way for a squad that has the toughest schedule in America.
Manti Te’o is the best linebacker on the planet and he will be teeing off on Akeem Shavers, who ran for 76 yards and a TD in the Boilermakers 48-6 victory over Eastern Kentucky.
Earlier in the week it was confirmed that third-leading receiver O.J. Ross had been suspended for Purdue’s bowl game Dec. 27. Now, one of Ross’ receiving mates won’t be available as well. Head coach Danny Hope, the recipient of a surprise contract extension Saturday, announced that Waynelle Gravesande will not be available for the Little Caesars Pizza…
A suspension earlier this month and a an arrest late this past week will likely cost Purdue a pair of key players on each side of the ball for their bowl game, head coach Danny Hope said Sunday. Wide receiver O.J. Ross was suspended indefinitely Dec. 6 for violating unspecified team rules, and Hope said…
In its last bowl appearance, Purdue visited Detroit to play a Mid-American Conference school from the state of Michigan. Four years later, the Boilermakers are facing that same scenario.
Looking for their first winning season since 2007, the Boilermakers face high-scoring Western Michigan in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl on Tuesday at Ford Field.
After failing to win more than...

Cincinnati quarterback Zach Collaros is recovering well from his broken ankle and there is a chance he could play in the Liberty Bowl. Louisiana State receiver Rueben Randle has started to live up to his potential this season. Purdue has suspended wide receiver OJ Ross, and his status for the Boilermaker’s appearance in the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl is in question. Is Jim...
Purdue will already play the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl on Dec. 27 (for a complete list of bowl predictions, click here) without leading rusher Ralph Bolden, who has a torn ACL. Now, they could very well be without their third-best receiver for the game. In an official statement sent Tuesday, coach Danny Hope said receiver O.J. Ross has been…

This segment will "air" every Friday throughout the season. I will breakdown the upcoming game and give a prediction as it relates to the betting line. Sure, this is aimed at our degenerate gambler fans but I think it will be informative for the non-betting folks as well. Feel free to post a comment regarding your thoughts. This segment is meant to be unbiased as the only...
