Unfortunately, I think Danny Hope may be the worst coach in America. Though I'm not even sure he's the worst Big Ten coach in the state.
Trying to be a fan of college football in Indiana sucks right now.
Goodbye Danny Hope. Cant recruit. Cant coach. Get out!
Highlight of the day ( and the point i turned the game off ) was 3rd and 6, we need a TD to not let this game get out of hand. Hope calls for a QB run up the middle.
Caleb Terbush is one of the slowest QB's i've seen in college football, for the love of God, why are we letting him run the ball 10 times a game. Can someone f'ing explain that too me please? What in the hell is going on here?
^ better than early Tiller?
The absolute last complaint I have about Hope is his recruiting, it's about the only positive I can come up with him. This is a pretty talented team. Short, Allen, Gaston, Josh Johnson, Shavers, Hunt, Ross, Edison (I think), those guys all came to Purdue to play for Danny Hope. He's gotten a 4 star QB in of the last 2 recruiting classes. He's killed it recruiting Florida. It's inevitable Hope's sticking around through at least next year, and I'm hoping Austin Appelby's all he's cracked up to be.
I also want to note that the school spends basically crap on football. I don't know if the extension gave him a raise but he's gotta be in the bottom 2 or 3 of the conference for salary. The combined salaries of the assistants are dead last in the conference. We all remember the Painter to Mizzou kerfuffle and how Painter demanded Burke give him a recruiting budget that didn't have him paying for rental cars out of pocket, I've got to imagine it's the same situation with the football program. Purdue athletics being completely self funded and finishing in the black every year is certainly commendable, but you get what you pay for.
so James Blackmon, who's committed to IU, is apparently at Mackey for the Midnight Madness thing right now...
^ he better be careful or they'll put him in a quantum physics class for summer school.
i hope this gets bumped as a bad post tomorrow, but if I were a betting man, I would put $$$ on Wisconsin + 2.5. That line seems insane to me.
really? 2.5? I like to be optimistic and all but yeah, that ain't happenin
Don't regret leaving this game at all.
lol we are going to put Ball back in the Heisman race, and earn that grad student coaching the Wisconsin O-Line a 5 year contract
if we got 3 points for every first down we got, we'd only be down by 1
Well that sucked watching Montee Ball against this defense was like watching MJD against the Colts run D.
The game was nice for the first minute and well you get the rest.
The Badgers haven't lost at Ross Ade since Drew Brees was QB
The football program seems like it's dieing a slow death. I cant believe that place was half empty for that big of a game. And ofcourse, Hope go clown shoes put on him. All this talent on defense and he cant coach them up to beat a high school team at this point.
well, they at least aren't censoring fan feedack
Mitch Daniels got cleared of his ethics problem so he'll officially take office as prez in January
It was a joke, but did you guys actually fill up the whole arena this year?
estimates around 9k
