No Hope For Purdue
Personal Foul! Purdue Gifts Win to BG
Saturday, 26 September 2015 19:22

Purdue chased Bowling Green all over Ross-Ade stadium today, but in the end, more than 70 yards worth of personal foul calls in the fourth quarter alone allowed the game get away from them.  There is simply no excuse for the quality of product that Morgan Burke is allowing Darrell Hazell to put on the field.  Danny Hope couldn't put a disciplined product on the field, and neither can Hazell.  It's embarrassing to see Purdue at 1-3 (and IU, on the other hand is at 4-0).

Purdue kicked the ball off to start the game and Bowling Green came right down the field and scored.  Purdue, to their credit, was able to keep pace.  But despite an interception on one possession and two turnover-on-downs for our defense, Purdue managed exactly zero points.  In fact, they really generated -7 points.  After getting the interception at 14-14, Purdue drove down to the goal line, and Griggs choked.  Again.  On a 20-yard attempt.  That allowed Bowling Green to go right on down the field, in just under 80 seconds of clock time, to take the lead into the half.

Three personal foul calls against Purdue put them with their back against the goalposts, and despite moving down the field.  Hazell again sent our lame duck kicker for a 32-yard try.  No good.  Again.  30 yards-worth of personal foul calls, and Bowling Green scored the go-ahead touchdown.

In the Cradle Carousel of Quarterbacks, Blough did OK, with his only interception being a meaningless throw on the last play of the game.

Purdue is now 1-3 as they go into a B1G schedule that features three ranked teams (#2 Michigan State is next week, #22 Wisconsin and #17 Northwestern).  The combined records of their Big Ten schedule is 21-5 (at press time).  The only team with a losing record is Nebraska.

With today being "hammer down cancer" day, and that color typically signified by pink, would Purdue please show pink slips to Burke and Hazell?

Another 3-and-out for Purdue Against Virginia Tech
Thursday, 24 September 2015 02:16

The broadcasters threw up a stat I hadn't taken much notice of.  Coach Hazell has just five wins in his tenure.  While that's bad, it's not the worst part.  Three of them were to FCS schools!  How embarrassing for an institution like ours!

The only thing more embarrassing was the on-field performance.  In the second quarter, Purdue had four offensive possessions in the second quarter, and three of them went 3-and-out.  In fact, of the 17 offensive possessions, 11 of them wound up without a first down.  You can't win a game if you can't move the chains.  Appleby was pathetic, going just 9-28 and 110 yards and finished with a QB rating of just 10.7.

Hazell should be shown the door.  And Burke should lead the way out!

Purdue Flogs FCS's Indiana State 38-14
Sunday, 13 September 2015 16:16

The FCS loves Purdue because it offers them a significant chance of beating a FBS team.  The B1G is so concerned about this issue that beginning with 2016, games against FCS opponents will no longer be allowed.  But the league grandfathered the Purdue/Eastern Kentucky game next year, affording another opportunity for an FCS school to get a win over Purdue.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves too much.  Indiana State came into Purdue hoping to be the next in line to beat up on the flailing Purdue program.  But, three 50-yard touchdown passes, including a 51-yard bomb by Appleby that was in the air for over 60 yards, led a 540-yard offensive assault on the Sycamores.  Final score was 38-14.  Dare we say this might just give a Purdue fan some hope for positive results as the season goes on?

Let's not get ahead of ourselves too much.  Take a look at the result #5 Michigan State (Purdue heads to East Lansing on 10/3) achieved against #7 Oregon.  Or the result Bowling Green (Purdue welcomes them on 9/26) got against Maryland (yeah, they're a B1G school) this week.  Or the 58-0 drubbing Wisconsin (Purdue heads there on 10/17) delivered to Miami (OH).

Purdue football has a long way to go.  This is but one small step.

Purdue Gives Marshall First Win over B1G Opponent
Sunday, 06 September 2015 23:29

Purdue opened their season by spotting the opponents 7 points.  On their first play from scrimmage, Appleby through an INT to Tiquan Lang that went for a touchdown.  Lang would later return a 4th quarter interception when Purdue was down by 3 to seal Purdue's season-opening fate.  When all the dust settled, Purdue led many of the statistical categories - including turnovers, passing yardage, rushing yardage, and time of possession - but failed to lead the only statistic that matters.  While it appears that Purdue shows some signs of strength, depending on a predictable offense to make up for failings on a defense is not going to fool the Michigan States, Nebraskas and Northwesterns of the league.  Yes, I said Northwestern.  They went to Stanford and beat up the Cardinal.  So, if you were hoping for Purdue to be strong enough to make post-season play, I would suggest you WTBS.  You remember that acronym, right?

Purdue Finally Fires Danny Hope
Sunday, 25 November 2012 22:45

After four years of dismal performance and one day after getting bowl eligible, Purdue has fired Danny Hope as their head coach.  And to add to our celebration, he will not coach in any bowl game that Purdue might get invited to.  During the dark ages known as his era as head coach, Hope was 21-27, managing to do no better than second-tier bowl games in 2011 and 2012.
