Are you a Purdue fan, perhaps one who also dabbles in social media? If so, the Purdue athletic department has a cool new feature. It's called Boilermaker Social Rewards, and as the title indicates, it rewards Purdue fans for being social. The more Purdue fans use social media, the more points they earn and the more cool prizes they receive. If interested, sign up now; it's fast and easy.

[ Tom Dienhart's thoughts from Purdue practice]

Speaking of Purdue and social media, we highly recommend you follow @PurdueSports, @BoilerFootball and @BoilerBall on Twitter and like Purdue Athletics on Facebook.

The Boilermakers kick off the 2012 season on Sept.1 against Eastern Kentucky. A couple national personalities have varying opinions on Purdue's 2012 fate.'s Andy Staples is low on the Boilers, while ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit is quite high on them.
