Well said Tom. I like your list and trust that Morgan will act quickly in correcting the mistake he made five years ago.

Hope is a good man, it just didn’t work. Best of luck coach.

Since Purdue has decided to make a change, I strongly suggest that they go after
the absolute best coach that is attainable! This may mean that Purdue open up the
pocket book but if they want to improve the calibur of coaching, Purdue will have to
spend some serious money. Do think that will happen!!!!

They do have a big drum. It’s something that Zpurdue can build from.

Why not add Bo Pelini to the list of potential coaches? Everyone always thinks he’s leaving Lincoln. Lol

Well, it looks like Purdue has…. no Hope.

I think that Morgan and Purdue Nation is comfortable with average

Yep and also Purdue doesn’t want to pay for a big name coach….I think Jim Tressel would be nice

Purdue Nation is not going to settle for average ticket sails and the overwhelming out loud suggestion to Fire Hope shows that. He is a nice guy but that doesn’t win football games. There is no reason we don’t spend the money to bring in a coach that can win. We could be and should be a BCS bowl game type of team

Burke missed the boat on Sumlin last year and stuck with a lackluster/cheap coach. Seems Purdue Nation knew better than Burke on that call. I highly doubt that they will open the coffers, that’s not “their way”. So expect more mediocre performance from the program in the future. *sigh*

I do love the comment “I don’t know what we would have done differently”! Seriously?? How about playing your offense at the end of the game at OSU instead of 3 consecutive drives of 3 rushes and punt?? How about not staying with your ineffective QB at ND and the 5 games that were tanked in the Big 10 season? His total lack of recognition on what needed to be done, and the cause of problems is the reason I never believed in him.

Is Jim Tressel really a legitimate candidate? Isn’t he serving some kind of suspension meted out by the NCAA?

Bobby Petrino anyone? Dykes, Helfrich, Jones, or Tressel are my top choices but don’t rule out the possibility of Petrino being interviewed because he is a big time coach that is available even though no one can trust him..
