Purdue coach Jeff Brohm offered a simple explanation for the Boilermakers’ struggles on the offensive line last week against No. 10 Penn State.
With pesky junior guard Nojel Eastern defending the ball on the perimeter and rim-protecting 7-foot-3 junior center Matt Haarms inside, Purdue projects to be a stronger defensive team in 2019-20.
Even without standout guard Carsen Edwards, several major preseason basketball publications project Purdue to finish in the top third of the Big Ten in 2019-20.
Purdue will be without senior quarterback Elijah Sindelar, sophomore wide receiver Rondale Moore and several other key players heading into Saturday’s matchup at No. 12 Penn State.
Senior quarterback Elijah Sindelar remains in concussion protocol and is questionable for Purdue’s Big Ten opener against Minnesota on Saturday at Ross-Ade Stadium.
WEST LAFAYETTE - On the day Jeff Brohm opened his second fall camp at Purdue, the coach announced that eight players will represent the team as captains.
If Brohm is going to get closer to the record-setting offensive standard he set at Western Kentucky, the receivers are the most critical position group.
Purdue’s running backs were arguably the deepest and most talented of the Boilermakers’ position groups last year. This year, they’ll be the same thing — only a year older and (possibly) healthier.
WEST LAFAYETTE – With Jake Replogle graduating from Purdue, the Boilermakers have a major hole to fill on the defensive line – a massive 6-foot-5, 290-pound hole.
Former Creighton assistant coach Steve Lutz joined the Purdue basketball staff as an assistant coach, Boilermakers coach Matt Painter announced Thursday.
WEST LAFAYETTE – Before she became a finalist for Indiana’s Miss Basketball, before she was named a Max Preps All-American and well before she led Homestead to a state championship, Karissa McLaughlin was the little girl shooting hoops in the corner of the gym.
As the leadoff batter on Purdue’s baseball team, it’s Evan Warden’s job to get on base by any means necessary. So when a 90-mph fastball is barreling toward the batter’s box, the Kokomo native isn’t afraid to trade a bruise for a base.
WEST LAFAYETTE – Purdue center Isaac Haas said he planned to go through the NBA Draft process in the immediate aftermath of the Boilermakers’ season-ending loss to Kansas.
Well after the final out was recorded and the fight song had faded into the crisp night air, a long line of tail lights flickered from McCormick Road just beyond the centerfield wall at Alexander Field.
Not even a minute into Purdue’s spring football game, running back Tario Fuller took the handoff and showed some of the flair new coach Jeff Brohm will bring to Purdue.
WEST LAFAYETTE – Purdue junior Vincent Edwards announced Friday that he's declaring for the NBA Draft. However, he will not hire an agent, leaving the door open that he could return for his senior season.
After five weeks and 14 practices, it’s time for new Purdue coach Jeff Brohm to lead the Boilermakers onto the field at Ross-Ade Stadium for the first time during the annual spring game.
Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Kawann Short has plenty on his mind these days — his ongoing contract negotiations, his drive to win a Super Bowl, his motivation to return to the Pro Bowl.
WEST LAFAYETTE — After 14 practices leading up to Purdue’s spring game on Saturday, new Purdue coach Jeff Brohm has determined that his best position group is probably the running backs.
WEST LAFAYETTE – Purdue sophomore Caleb Swanigan will enter his name into the NBA Draft for the second straight year without an agent, he announced Wednesday on a Fort Wayne hip hop podcast.
At the start of spring football, the quarterbacks were in a meeting room when their position coach Brian Brohm came to redshirt freshman signal caller Jared Sparks with an interesting idea.
When new football coach Jeff Brohm was hired at Purdue, he promised a wide-open passing attack that features the quarterback. But when it comes to his record-setting offense, there’s another position group that will play a major role in that production.
WEST LAFAYETTE - Former Purdue associate head coach Jack Owens has been tabbed as the next head coach at Miami (Ohio), the school announced on Wednesday.
T.J. Jallow comes to Purdue after two seasons with East Mississippi Community College. The school won three national championships since 2011, making it one of the best junior colleges in the nation.
