CHOO CHOO

Matt Jones and his #4 Purdue Boilermakers continue the chug along to a B1G West division championship and possibly more following their 38-21 win over Nebraska on the road.

DOLPHINS, SO HOT RIGHT NOW

Things continue to click in Miami and the Dolphins were able to remain undefeated Sunday Night with a 35-19 win over the New York Jets. The acquisition of rookie WR J.C. Weldon seems to be just what the doctor ordered.

LAST NIGHT TOOK AN L

#12 Arizona bounced back in a big way following their surprising loss to the Utah Utes last weekend. Smacking the Colorado Buffaloes 45-10 behind an offensive explosion from QB Sam Parish and his weapons

OH MAN-A-SOTA

Misfortune strikes again in Minnesota as the Vikings get beat down 45-11 by the Baltimore Ravens in their own house. On top of that, their already injury plagued team picked up four more injuries. Was that headline a stretch? Why yes...yes it was.

    [2021] Jesse Scott to be inducted into Purdue HoF

    WEST LAFAYETTE - The Purdue Athletic Department has announced that former WR/KR/PR Jesse Scott (2013-2017) will be inducted into the Purdue Hall of Fame during halftime against Wisconsin in Week 9. Jesse Scott joins former teammates QB Corey Mendoza, CB Dan Weaver, and OG P.B. Holmes in the Purdue Hall of Fame.

     

    Head coach Mark Inspiricht said, "It was tough this year to select the inductee. Adams Williams, Joseph Bowen, C.J. Sheffield, and Ray Harrison were all short listed. However, Jesse has been the most dynamic special teams player I've ever coached and he near-single-handedly accomplished one of the largest upsets in program history."

     

    Jesse Scott graduated with the CFBHC record for most punts and kickoffs returned for touchdowns. Scott's most renowned feat was in the 2015 upset of #9 Wisconsin in Madison when he returned 2 punts for touchdowns in the game. It was the Boilermakers first victory over a ranked opponent, and it was thanks in large part to Scott. The win is a key victory in Purdue football history and it was a relief after many close losses in 2014 and 2015 where the Boilermakers dropped a halftime lead.

     

    Jesse Scott would finish his college career as a WR in Purdue's high-octane offense led by Corey Mendoza with over 1000 yards, 11 TDs, and bowl wins over California, Georgia, and Kansas.

     

    Jesse Scott debuted in NFLHC with the New York Jets and in his first game returned a kick for a touchdown; however, Scott torn his ACL and recovered for the remainder of the season. Scott still plays for the New York Jets and the Purdue Athletic Department wishes him the best of luck.

     

    Inspiricht finished the announcement with "I'm glad to have had Jesse as a Boilermaker. I love watching him on Sunday's with the Jets and look forward to his return to Purdue against the Badgers for his induction."
