Can I just start this off by saying that today was the craziest day that I can remember in a long time. First of all we were just coming off of the news that Butch Jones was not even considering Purdue. Our first choice was out the window. When this thing started Sonny Dykes was rumored to be the second choice. Since that time I have not heard his name come up in regards to Purdue. That left us with our third choice which was Kent State coach Darrell Hazell. I was really keeping up on this today as the rumors were building to the point where he looked to be our next coach. Then the lone Twitter confirmation came, and the internet went crazy. Of course that was followed by a denial which sent those that had jumped to be first into backtrack mode. It seemed as if the denial was planned because as the retractions were being written the news broke that Hazell was indeed going to be named the head coach at Purdue. Of course all of those who jumped too quickly at first, and then jumped too quickly at the denial were now once again beating their chests. I still don’t know what to think. It appears as if Hazell is now the coach at Purdue, but I will truly believe it now when I see him with Purdue gear on standing next to Morgan Burke. After the Matt Painter fiasco I am gun shy about believing anything that I read on Twitter.
