January 7, 2016
By

Evidently, at Purdue it is a better policy to keep a coach who has no clue as to how to win football games than pay him off and find somebody new.  Because it would have cost 6.7 million to buy Hazell out, Morgan Burke (the AD), said they had made the decision to continue...

January 6, 2016
By
