Ryan and I are back with a new episode of the Boiler Alert podcast after taking a couple weeks off for the Christmas and New Year holidays. There’s a lot to talk about. Purdue football lost one of their best players on either side of the ball when Nic Scourton indicated his intent to enter the transfer portal. We talk about what this means for Purdue and what changes we would make to NIL, something that we both support but acknowledge that it’s not a perfect system.
Then we discuss the recent turmoil at Illinois and putting aside the legal aspects of it, we talk about what it means for the Big Ten race. Plus, who are the teams in the Big Ten that could threaten Purdue? We give you two teams to keep an eye on.
Finally, we talk Purdue vs. Maryland and what to expect tonight as the Boilermakers return to Big Ten action.
