The Boiler Alert podcast is back with you today as we take a look at updates from Purdue football. This includes the latest entrances to the transfer portal and the Big Ten awards. Purdue did receive some recognition in the season end awards but maybe not as much as Ryan and I thought they should. We take particular issue with some of the choices for the defensive team.
Then, we turn to where our bread is buttered, basketball. Purdue faced Texas Southern in a blowout victory at Mackey Arena. There was a possible triple double on the docket due to yet another brilliant performance by Braden Smith. He was two rebounds shy when he got taken out and didn’t play another minute. Then, incredibly, he got a rebound while on the bench (not really) and finished just one rebound shy of just the second triple double in Purdue men’s basketball history.
Finally, we look ahead to Northwestern where Ryan will be in attendance to see Purdue have a revenge game against the Wildcats. Give us a listen, rate, and review us wherever you get your podcasts.
