  1. Five Questions Facing Purdue Basketball for 2015-16Read the original story

    Mar 22, 2015 | Hammer & Rails

    If I were to sum up the 2014-15 basketball season for Purdue I would say it exceeded expectations by doing exactly what was expected. Those words together don't make much sense, but try to follow my meaning.

  2. The Morning AfterRead the original story

    Mar 20, 2015 | Hammer & Rails

    I woke up still sad after last night's game. I thought to myself, "Why am I sad about a group of 18-22 year old's losing a basketball game? They have every reason to be sad, but why am I sad as just a fan?" I guess this is what happens when you invest so much into a team, especially your own alma mater.

  4. Big Ten Tournament Result: Purdue 64, Penn State 59Read the original story

    Mar 13, 2015 | Hammer & Rails

    There's a saying that they just keep making the same movies in Hollywood. In West Lafayette, the Boilers keep writing the same script to victory: slow start on offense gives way to a strong finish behind tough D and better tall players than the other team.

    Mar 7, 2015 | Hammer & Rails

  10. Duff/Comrie DoneRead the original story

    Feb 21, 2015 | Hammer & Rails

    If memory serves, the recent multi year period of hoops darkness in West Lafayette began when someone posted a picture of a very grateful Hillary Duff showing her appreciation to Mr. Comrie for offering to make an honest woman of her. Seeing her on her knees was more than the dead Indians buried under The Barn could bear and Robbie crumpled to the floor.

  11. 2015 Bracketology: Saturday Scoreboard WatchingRead the original story

    Feb 21, 2015 | Hammer & Rails

    Finally, Purdue get a chance to rest and let everyone beat each other up. The downside of winning seven of the last eight games is that basketball is fun again, so when we're not playing we're not winning.

    Feb 14, 2015 | Hammer & Rails

    Most of Saturday is going to be scoreboard watching as we see what fellow Bubble Teams around us do. I may even post an Open Thread later to point out what games matter the most and which do not.

  15. 2015 Bracketology: Purdue's February 11 ProfileRead the original story

    Feb 11, 2015 | Hammer & Rails

    The loss to Minnesota on Saturday was not crippling, but it does tighten things for the Boilers. Fortunately for us Minnesota still has a strong enough non-conference profile and the ability to climb back into the NCAA race themselves.

  20. Assistant CoachesRead the original story

    Dec 24, 2014 | Hammer & Rails

    I'm a big believer that any sports program is built for success on the assistant coaches. Yes ultimately the decisions come down to the head coach but the assistants are doing the majority of the basketball tasks and working very closely with the players.
