Purdue gets to travel to Lincoln for the first time since Nebraska joined our illustrious conference a few years ago. In fact, it’s the first time Purdue has ever played at Nebraska, so far as we can tell. The Boilers and Huskers are locked in a completely even battle, in terms of all-time record, with […]
Handsome Hour Part 2 is here for your auditory delight. In Part 2, Boilerdowd and J continue rambling deep into the night and even move onto other BS hosts’ turf and talk a little Purdue basketball.
IT’S BAAAACK. After a redshirt year, Michael and Andy make their glorious return to the Purdue Basketball Beat (and the newly-created Boiled Sports Podcast Network) by being lovely enough to add yours truly. Click the iTunes button at the bottom to subscribe. We’re basically the three musketeers. Except, you know, Boilermakers. And can’t sword fight […]
The Handsome Hour is back. In fact, you have a lot of podcasts to listen to in order to catch up on your assignments. In this episode of the Handsome Hour, Boilerdowd and J get back into the swing after many months away from this medium, so bear with us… we’ll go back to being […]
Coach Hope is available – maybe even for birthday parties – and would be “a valuable member of any football program, university staff, and community.” But don’t take my word for it – Danny himself is here to tell you about it. Just go check out his site…. Are you ready for this? I mean, […]
There has been a palpable change in the Purdue football fan mood in recent weeks. While some have gone from frustrated but supportive to genuinely excited, I think more are in the bucket that went from hopeless to waiting for the shoe to drop, which, as any longtime Purdue fan knows, is our default state. […]
Note: This is the fourth of the postseason Year In Review series. Click that shiny link to see them all. They will recap their 2013-2014 season, show their “GIF of the Year”, state my favorite nicknames, and give a best/worst case scenario for next season. Warning: stuff got real weird for my best/worst case scenarios. 2013-2014 season recap 6.0 points, […]
If you want to, you can go back and read my predicto…if you don’t want to, I can tell you that I should buy a lottery ticket. I guessed right and got lucky. This game was close…Purdue was in the driver’s seat for about three quarters, but couldn’t seal the deal. Purdue’s game started and […]
The last time Purdue and Minnesota got together was also in the house that Glen Mason built up in Minny. (Incidentally, I’ve been referring to Ross-Ade for a while as now being the smallest venue in the Big Ten outside of Ryan Field, but that’s no longer true. Our new members play in smaller locales […]

I wanted to post this…because I wanted to post this. Almost exactly a year ago, I coined a nickname that stuck. I thought it was good one (of course, I’m a touch biased)…but so did PurdueSports.com. Shockingly, I didn’t even get a tip of the cap…oh well; I’ve grown to expect that. So now, here are […]
It’s amazing what a little progress will do for everyone’s mindset. Mere weeks ago, there were many suggesting that Darrell Hazell was in over his head and that John Shoop should be fired immediately (after being punched a few times, I think was the consensus). I wasn’t in the best of moods about things, either, […]
It happened a year later than I thought it would, but a new culture is taking root in the halls of Mollenkopf…and finally, it’s not just platitudes that are the proof of real change. Last week, we had a reader say that Purdue was going the right direction under Danny Hope and all of the […]
“It is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all” basically sums up every feeling I could summon as I recovered from Austin Appleby’s game sealing pick-six, falling short to the Spartans 45-31.
Purdue seems to really like rolling out special, alternate helmets against at home against opponents who are likely to wax our boys. The thing is, Purdue’s athletic department makes so many bonerbrained moves that this kind of doesn’t even get noticed by fans. Last year’s head-to-toe all black look and blackout theme came against OSU […]
