Recapping the Maryland Terrapin’s loss to Purdue

Last night, the Maryland Terrapins lost their Big Ten opening basketball game to the Purdue Boilermakers by a final score of 80-75. In a game in which the Terrapins trailed by as much as 14, they were able to make a late game-run, and had a chance to tie the game with just 14 seconds left. While the game was certainly a testament to the Terrapins’ resiliency, and ability to not let...

Purdue Football Recruiting: Purdue and Markese Stepp Take a Step Back

It doesn’t appear as if this is going to work out. It appears as if Markese Stepp and Purdue are headed in different directions. Stepp has cooled off the Boilermakers after recent reports this week said he was set to have an official visit next weekend. Stepp, a 4* from powerhouse Cathedral in Indianapolis, decommitted from Notre Dame last week, after being a long standing verbal...

Purdue Football Recruiting: It’s a Thing! Breaking Down the Offense

Purdue got better today...probably...we’ll have to wait and see. What does this all mean? Honestly, I have no idea, could be good, could be bad, but it will certainly be something. This is a developmental class, with the exception of wide receiver. You’re going to need to store these guys away in the back of your brain for a little while, but that’s a good thing. Patience in building...

The Story of Purdue’s Stolen Football National Title

Yes, Purdue has a claim on a college football national championship. On Monday Central Florida defeated Auburn in the Peach Bowl. That clinched an undefeated season for the Golden Knights, and since Auburn has a victory over both participants in this year’s playoff championship game, officials at Central Florida are claiming this year as a national championship. This is not as...

Rondale Moore, 4 Star WR, Commits to Purdue

Purdue just received one of the biggest commitments in the history of the football program in between quarters at the Army High School All-American football game. Four Star wide-receiver, and certified speed demon, Rondale Moore chose to pick up and put on the Purdue hat over hats from Ohio State, Alabama, and Florida State. You may recall Moore as the former University of Texas...

Purdue Football: Ja’Whaun Bentley Headed to Senior Bowl

This is a very good thing when looking at past Boilermakers. Yesterday, Ja’Whaun Bentley accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl, which is played on January 27th. As you can see, this is generally a good thing for our Boilermakers. As, the past few who have played in this bowl were drafted and actually drafted pretty high in the draft. Kawaan Short was drafted early in the...

Purdue: Re-Earning Its Place in the Big Ten

In the last few years Purdue has re-gained it self respect. About three and a half years ago it was a dark time for Purdue athletics. Our beloved school has never run roughshod over the conference across all sports, but back then it was an especially bad time. Men’s basketball was coming off of a last place finish in the conference. Football was two years away from firing Darrell...

Purdue Football Recruiting: Goings on in the State

Purdue making moves on in-state talent Don’t let the fact that Purdue has dominated a liberal arts college in the Southern region of the state distract you from the fact that they also plan on locking down the state in football recruiting as well.

The Indiana Hoosiers, yes, this 2017-2018 Indiana Hoosiers basketball (12-11, 5-6) team came incredibly close to upsetting the Purdue Boilermakers (21-2, 10-0) on Monday night, when they lost a close battle 74-67. Indiana had a roaring start to the game, jumping to a 10-point lead early in the game. The Hoosiers would go on to keep up with the Boilermakers for the remainder of the...

Purdue Holds on to Beat (checks schedule) Rutgers. 78-76 Final

The Scarlet Knights were pesky tonight. When you’ve won 18 games in a row the next game always feel like it could be the last. You’ve played too good for too long. You’ve gotten out of some tricky games with a win. You’ve played poorly and still won. Yet somehow you continue to win. Today definitely falls into that last category. Purdue allowed Rutgers to stay in this game and nearly...

Judgment Week is Here

The Big Ten title will likely be decided this week. So far it has been 12 up and 12 down for Purdue. The Boilers have run through the Big Ten with a perfect record, with the toughest two games coming against Michigan. Purdue won both of those by five total points, and with so few definite NCAA teams coming from the league this year those look like really good wins. For good measure...

Purdue Basketball: Rebounding and the Art of Winning

Purdue has struggled on the glass and continues to win. Do you want to know what every teams biggest weakness is? Good teams. It seems obvious, but I’m gonna be obvious because it’s important, good teams can beat you. That’s why the Ohio State game is so dangerous. It’s why the MSU game looks so imposing in East Lansing. It’s why the B10 slate is always so daunting. It...

The Lost Defensive Recruiting Class

The 2015 defensive recruiting class has Purdue behind the 8 ball. Purdue’s defensive rebound in 2017 was impressive, but the 2018 is going to require a miracle of coaching and recruiting to overcome the 2015 recruiting class. The 2015 recruiting class should be backbone of the 2018 defense. You need redshirt juniors and true seniors to lead the way at a program like Purdue. Even...

Purdue gets a late addition to the 2018 class. With Evander Craft in limbo since the fall (he just signed with Toledo today), Coach Brohm and Co. had their eyes on another linebacker. Enter Jack Smith, a lengthy outside backer from the heart of Florida. Jack will be coming north from Lakeland, Florida. Jack Smith chose Purdue over Cincinnati and Western Kentucky.

How Does Purdue Really Do in Close Games?

The myth is that Painter & Co. can’t win close games. Are they right? Curiosity often gets the best of me. It is part of the reason this blog started many years ago. When I get an idea in my head it tends to eat at me until I can get an answer. After the last two games I had a pretty reasonable question: Just how good is Purdue when it comes to close games? The common narrative...

One Last Shot: What About Purdue in One Possession Games?

If it comes down to a final shot, things do not go well for Purdue. Yesterday I took a pretty deep dive into how Purdue has fared with this group of seniors in “Close” games. I defined a close game as any game that was within a possession after the final media timeout. That is a pretty wide definition, however. I found that one bad loss (Gardner Webb) found Purdue never really got...

Purdue Basketball: Where Has The Unstoppable Offense Gone?

Yes, it is as ugly as you think. Okay, it is the day after. We got beat by one of the worst Wisconsin teams in the worst decade. It was almost unwatchable basketball at times. Our boys barely broke 50 points. So what the hell is wrong? I am not a basketball genius, but I think I know a little bit about it. From what I have seen, our motion offense is stagnant, movement without...
