Purdue Football

When will the Purdue Boilermakers ever get their football program straightened out?  This year like every year since Joe Tiller retired they get worse as the season goes on instead of getting better.  They continue to make the same mistakes and the recruiting is horrible.

Bengal-Bungle

November 26, 2014
By

The Cincinnati Bengals remain an enigma in pro football.  On any given weekend they can play well enough to beat anybody in pro football, and the next weekend play as if they are still trying to learn the game.  I suppose the funny part of this is that the entire NFL seems to have become...
