The Return of Boilermakings Celebrates a Purdue National Championship

David Boudia won his fifth National Title for Purdue last night.

I wanted to bring back some Boilermakings news because one Purdue athlete deserves a ton of recognition for his accomplishments. David Boudia won his fifth career National Championship last night, this time on the 1-meter springboard. He is striving to become the first diver in NCAA history to win all boards at the same meet, and it is his final meet for Purdue. he will forgo his senior season next year to train for the 2012 London Olympics.

1. It's not happening

2. If it did happen, it would be the biggest mistake the Purdue athletic department has ever made. There is no reason to let him escape to another time, and it would be disappointing to let an alumnus perfect for the program go.
