Joe Tiller: Morgan Burke Isn’t a Football Guy

For those of you in the Indy area, you may be aware of a drive time radio program hosted by Derek Schultz and a guy Schultz has to carry on his back every day. One of their features is a “Catching Up With…” segment where they… uh… catch up with someone from Indiana sports lore. Two weeks ago, they spent some time with Joe Tiller. When asked about his most talented team...

Phil Jackson hates Joe Barry Carroll and Glenn Robinson and Purdue basketball, probably

Phil Jackson talking out of his behind to gain headlines shouldn’t be anything new to you. But as a multi-millionaire curator/unpaid intern at a Purdue blog in the corner of the internet, it is my duty to tell you when anyone calls out Purdue’s two most successful basketball stars in school history in one sentence. From Part 5 of Charley Rosen’s “The Phil Files” on ESPN...

Who else has missed Tim Beckman?

I know I’m excited for Big Ten Football to be back. Danny Hope would love this guy.

Ryan Kerrigan is perfect

Ryan Kerrigan is a superstar, and he just got resigned by the Washington Professional Football team to a 5 year, $57.5M extension, and he’s super boring, and I love him so much. This profile done in the Washington Post is pretty much perfection, and everyone needs to take ten minutes and read it immediately. Ryan Kerrigan arrived in Washington four years ago with the money and...

Getting High In July (On Purdue Basketball)

It’s been a while since we did an old-fashioned BS roundtable – or at least since we did one worth posting. One thing that I keep thinking about is the way that so many people already seem all in on Purdue basketball for ’15-’16, largely thanks to Swanigan coming here and, of course, AJ coming back. Obviously, we’ll do this again at the start of the season, but as you sit...

Purdue Basketball Beat #25: Season 3 Episode 1

WE COMPLETELY ARBITRARILY START SEASON 3 OF THE PURDUE BASKETBALL BEAT with Aneesh and Michael talking about Caleb Swanigan’s Team USA U19 Gold Medal experience, Swanigan’s ability to easily adapt to any on-court situation and his reportedly beastly work ethic, Vince Edwards’ Team USA tryout, and Isaac Haas working out for the Pan Am games. We also spend the latter half of...

Gelen Robinson’s Arrest Violated Prior Agreement

As most of you likely know, sophomore defense end Gelen Robinson — son of Purdue basketball great Glenn Robinson — was arrested over the weekend for driving under the influence and having an open alcoholic beverage in his vehicle. Gelen just turned 20 less than two weeks ago and thus also was driving over the legal limit while being underage to begin with. Not good. Making...

Purdue is about to make your rich.

That’s right, if you have $10,000 lying around, you could be a millionaire in December, if you follow my foolproof plan: Bet on the Boilers. EsPN just posted the Vegas odds for whom might win the B1G title in American football…and our Boilers are in dead last with the longest odds (100:1). Sadly, I don’t think they’re just putting out a big number to lure folks into betting…I...

Who wins: 2009-2010 vs 2015-2016 Purdue Basketball?

Ok. I get it. This is a ridiculous thought exercise, because that 2010 team has three jerseys in the rafters, one of the best leaders in Purdue history, and chemistry out the wazoo. But that 2009-2010 team was the best Baby Boilers team, and Robbie got this question during his delightful Campus Insiders analysis segment, so let’s take a deep deep dive here. For the record, we...

All the hype about hype (and notes)

When Lebron was in HS, we were told he was the king. That was tough to swallow for a guy like me who thinks things should be earned…and call me crazy, but dominating AAU and winning Ohio state championships isn’t exactly the pinnacle. When Tiger Woods was on talk shows at age two…the world noticed…then, as he stayed in the public eye throughout childhood into Stanford. Before...

Is that one guy going to post again or what?

Sorry folks, it’s been a busy summer. boilerdowd and I came to the realization that one town just wasn’t big enough to handle two men as handsome as us, so I graciously volunteered to occupy another town, allowing us to gradually expand our stranglehold on the Indianapolis area until the entire eight-county region is under our sway. The next couple of weeks will be even busier...

Rob Hummel Shows His Analytical Skillz

You already saw Rob Hummel give his quick hit predictions on Purdue basketball for ’15-’16. Now he sits down for a longer segment with Campus Insiders to discuss the upcoming season. Topics include whether or not this is Coach Painter’s most talented team ever, AJ Hammons, Johnny Hill and whether a Final Four could be possible. Maybe Rob is heading to the analyst chair once...

Hey, Let Me Pickpocket You

Do you like what we do here? What’s it worth to you? A nickel? Then here’s what I ask: Consider donating that nickel to a cause that is very near and dear to my heart – the school and hospital that my brother has been a resident of for over 35 years. This year’s walk is this coming Sunday, May 31 (though you of course can donate after that date as well). In past years, I’ve...

The Boilermower

A couple weeks ago, I posted a picture via social media of a mower project I worked on at home. Essentially, I turned a raggedy old mower into a Purdue-themed mower to make my neighbors jealous. Unfortunately, much like the old show Pimp My Ride, the makeover was largely cosmetic and the mechanical underpinnings of the rider have continued to be a problem. However, I had intended...

In it, we discuss Caleb Swanigan’s decision to make Purdue better, expectations going into ’15-’16, dumb people in the media and much more. Come on in, the water’s fine.

Hey Dan Dakich, I was wrong.

First off, I don’t earn money in the media. I am OK with admitting when I’m wrong. This is not my job. And finally, I’ve had a lot of more important things to do than blast people I’ve never met over and over in any public medium possible. None of that can be said about Dan Dakich during the past few weeks- The most important thing for him following a barrage of name-calling...

Yeah, it’s time to be optimistic.

It’s been a long time since Purdue fans could just be giddy with anticipation…about anything really…right? I think we’ve all become pretty accustomed to dashed hopes and the perpetual season of managed of expectations. Well f*** that. I used to be an optimist…about everything. I’m now 39…Like all of you guys, life has jaded me a bit…being a brainwashed-since-birth...

Purdue Basketball Roundup

There’s been a buzz around Purdue basketball recently, so let’s touch on a few things.

Biggie Biggie Biggie…

So, the internet is ABLAZE with rumors that Purdue’s basketball program is going to get its first McDonald’s All American player since Mike Robinson. 5-star PF/C Caleb Swanigan has done an about face on his verbal commitment to Big Head Coach Izzo and MSU. Sources, from national outlets down to our beloved pals from Gold and Black believe Matty’s first McDs AA is nearly a...

Bang. That’s former Purdue All-American JaJuan Johnson throwing down for Beşiktaş İntegral Forex, a Turkish Basketball League team best known for signing ex-NBA stars Allen Iverson and Deron Williams (during the lockout), and winning the 2012 TBL championship on the immortal shoulders of Carlos Arroyo.

BS Off-Topic: Best Sports Commercials

It’s that magical time of year where we have less to talk about as it pertains to Purdue basketball and football so it allows us to pop out the beloved #BSOffTopic posts. (No word on whether they’re really beloved.) Today’s topic is sports-related commercials. I’m sure some of you love the one where the kid knocks the ball out of bounds and the refs make the wrong call, so...

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...

Where We At, Yo?

Like the changing of the seasons or tax day, one thing that you know happens around springtime if you’ve been reading BS for a while is that we essentially go into a hibernation of sorts. We write (and sometimes podcast) pretty extensively about football from August to November and then basketball starts in there and overlaps for a while, then we focus on basketball almost exclusively...

BS Bracket Challenge Down to Two

Kentucky being knocked out eliminated the vast majority of prognosticators, but there are a number of impressive brackets to check out in the BS Bracketgasm.

Now, sure, it’s two one-seeds so maybe on its face that’s not...
