I have been a Purdue fan since 1994, I was only 8 years old. I have supported this team through thick and thin I will ALWAYS support our players but this coaching staff must go. I can understand losing a few close games to good teams but losing this bad multiple years is unacceptable. Northwestern just beat Nebraska. Do we have the coach to beat Nebraska, yes but he is the basketball coach not football.
We have chosen to make basketball a priority which is awesome but we need to make our money maker a priority as well. Ricardo Allen, Ralph Bolden and the rest of the team deserve better, we have players on our roster that can make the NFL but not with the current coaching staff.
We as John Purdue Club members need to let our voices be heard, otherwise we will just stand by for yet, another disappointing season after season, unless Nancy Cross yells at us again.
I hate to be negative but we really need to demand better. IU has a awful football team but they have NCAA title banners, we do not (and they went out and hired a real coach for football and we hired a couch from kentucky.....need i say more). I am expecting to receive some hate from this message but I am tired of going on the road every week and getting blown out.
TMill - you are the man and i love reading your reports every week, the reason i come here over indystar is because of your honesty. your report after the wisconsin game was right on the money. AND FYI you were in the same row as me during the ND blowout. I was the guy who gave up after the first TD.
As I vent to all of you.
I will be attending the O$U Purdue game next weekend and I will be cheering on Purdue. so
