WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — "You want hope."
Those were Matt Painter's words, when labeling himself as a Purude football fan.
It seems the program has found that 'hope' many fans were looking for.
Painter may coach the basketball team, but he kept up with the Boilermakers' football team this year, and was impressed with the program's quick turnaround — from three wins in 2016, to six regular season wins (and a bowl berth) in 2017 under head coach Jeff Brohm.
