    Thursday Aug 4 | Hammer & Rails

    Last night's article from Nathan Baird in the Journal & Courier gives me a small amount of hope that another disastrous season might actually mean the end of Darrell Hazell's ignominious tenure in West Lafayette.

    Let me bathe myself in tears of the good times when I was a young naive child in West Lafayette, to a mid 20 year old naive man. I know, it has grown stale to many of us, but for some reason when the beginning of August rolls around I still see myself trembling in excitement prepping for the football season.

    Being very thin on the offensive line, Purdue could have a couple freshmen play at defensive tackle this season. It is a move out of necessity, but today's player could be ready to go in that department.

    What? Three opponent previews within a week of each other? Well, things are really slow at work and with six teams to go I should really get in gear. I also did things out of sequence since I got my schedule mixed up and thought we played Illinois before Maryland.
