Darrell Hazell inspires confidence

Today was the Big Ten media day for the Purdue Boilermakers and Minnesota Golden Gophers. The Gophers are on the upswing and Jerry Kill was enthusiastic but managed to temper expectations a bit. A lot of work to do, etc. Purdue is terrible and everyone knows it. Let’s go ahead and watch Darrell Hazell grasp at straws!

WOOOOOOO! Character! Work ethic! These are codewords for “Our team has terrible players, but they try hard.”

Game 1 is against powerhouse Western Michigan.

Most important. Not best. Not most talented. Just most important. Basically, they are the parts of the team that prevent the other players from getting killed.

Low expectations, depressing buzzwords, and a coach desperate to not say his team is outright awful. Purdue is going to be tremendous fun this year. Not for any good reasons though.
