    Last year was the first for Darrell Hazell, and it was an ugly one. Outside of playing Notre Dame tough, the Boilermakers trudged through an ugly season, finishing 1-11 with their lone victory over Indiana State. Travis Miller, the editor of Hammer and Rails, gives us a spring update on the Boilermakers.

  2. Five things we learned: Notre Dame 31, Purdue 24

    Notre Dame v Purdue

    For those hoping that Notre Dame would use Saturday night as a sparring session against an outmanned Purdue team, it took just 12 plays to know that this wouldn’t be a cakewalk. Dreams of getting freshmen playing time and defenders stats by the bushel came crashing to a halt as Purdue took it to the…

    For the second week in a row, Notre Dame will play in the national spotlight during a primetime game. While the lights won’t be quite as bright, the test is just as important — get back on the winning track against a Big Ten, rivalry opponent. As usual, we’ll be covering the proceedings, chatting along…

    It may lack the wattage of last Saturday night’s primetime affair, but this weekend’s date with Purdue counts the same as the other eleven regular season games. With the Irish coming off a damaging defeat at the hands of Michigan that felt like a game that slipped away, Notre Dame will have a chance to…

    It’s the first of the rivalry trophy games for Notre Dame, with Purdue and the Irish set to battle for the Shillelagh Trophy. (Not to be confused with the Jeweled Shillelagh…) With a new head coach and a new program direction in West Lafeyette, the college football world will be getting their first close look…

    With a primetime start and a team that is still adapting to a new system, Purdue coach Darrell Hazell looks ready for his biggest challenge to date: A Notre Dame team that’s looking to rebound after a difficult loss to Michigan. In his weekly press conference, Hazell talked about some of the challenges his team…

    This is the second of twelve opponent updates as we sprint towards next Saturday’s opening game in Dublin. For more, check out the preview of Navy. The Overview: Forgive Danny Hope if he’s been feeling snake bit. After taking over the Boilermakers program from Joe Tiller, Hope has had to battle a rash of bad…

  8. After big Purdue win, focus shifts to Air Force

    The Notre Dame victory over Purdue was an important one. For the Irish to play the kind of football they know they can, they need to have games like last Saturday’s, where the superior team enacts its will onto their opponent. The Irish did that, and they took a big step forward, pushing them to…

  9. The good, the bad, and the ugly: Notre Dame vs. Purdue

    It’s tough to be too picky this afternoon, a day after the Irish manhandled Purdue 38-10. Sure, the Irish left some points on the board. But even Brian Kelly knows there was too much good to try and complain. “We missed some opportunities,” Kelly said last night. “In close games, missing an easy field goal…

    While it’s hardly the top billing of the evening, the Fighting Irish have a chance to make a primetime statement, three weeks after failing to do so with all eyes watching. Notre Dame heads down to West Lafayette, taking on an undermanned Purdue squad that doesn’t have much of a shot on paper against a…

    In case people forgot, the Irish are playing a football game this Saturday night. Yep, they’ll be hopping on the bus and heading down to West Lafayette, enjoying that glorious drive down US 31 into Boilermaker country, where a hostile crowd will be looking to enact revenge from 2009, where Purdue nearly pulled the upset…

    It’s that time of year. The Purdue game. An annual tradition that’s not entirely appreciated by one-side of the in-state “rivalry,” a term that alone makes some Notre Dame fans bristle. (Memo to those fans: Be careful about getting too uppity about rivalries. Just look at what’s happened with Navy lately.) Anyway, if Michigan and…

  13. Unstable Midwest should mean good things for the Irish

    Strange days lie ahead for the Big Ten, or whatever they’re officially calling the conference right now. (B1G?) As news broke that North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson could be taking his talents to Madison, it solidified the fact that there’s near historic instability around the Midwest in college football, a recipe that should help…

    Jeez – You take the time to write a column about all the night games on the schedule and then ESPN goes and announces that the one game we barely covered moves to an evening affair. Purdue has joined the moonlight theme of the 2011 season by taking on the Irish after dark, with the…
