Hot takes: - Painter is way smarter than any of us, and probably smarter than 99% of the coaches out there. - Coaches can coach as hard as they want, but it's still up to the players to execute. - The players and coaches want to win waaay more than we want them to, so quit saying they don't care or are putting in the effort. And more. Well worth a watch.
For those who missed it, here's the BTN Purdue Media Days segments- an interview with CJB and a group interview of Karlaftis, Bell and Anthrop. From Brohm, some (deserved) veiled shade at Diaco, and more self-introspection than I've ever seen from him. Surprised with the damning-with-faint-praise of the running game, even though Horvath occasionally carried away he O. Overall, a fast 22 minutes.
Brandon Cottom, Boiler running back 2011-2014 who had stints in the NFL, AAF and Arena League, was interviewed by a Philadelphia-centric football vlog a few months ago. Not a whole lot of Purdue info, but an interesting watch all the same. Cottom was averaging over 9 YPC in Hope's final season, found himself in Hazell's doghouse (and Shoop's gag-awful offense), and had exactly 1 rushing attempt his senior year. The fact that he played a couple seasons for the Seahawks is testament to this young man's talent and drive, as well as the questionable coaching of the Hazell era.
Isn't it amazing for Tommy Luce, a walk-on, to get the legendary Gene Keady to do the scene? Absolutely love it. Luce himself is kinda a legend too - the King of Mackey. Also is the behind the scene on Keady: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSxTm83IBzc
I loved SRV since I was a 23 year pup in 1983. I never knew this song existed until last week. This song expresses the joy I feel after beating UT. BTFUPOTFH.
Good interview with Nobel Eastern.
FYI: trigger warning at the 0:45 mark. You're welcome.
