  Guys wouldn't sit out playoff games
If they extend them they will.There were guys the last couple of seasons still went in the 1st/2nd round that bowed out because of injury concerns.Watch - what do you think an agent or parents are going to tell them specially the studs.They are not going to play an extra game or two risking everything with nothing more than a championship ring and an atta boy to show for it. CFB may go down that road but it will be dilluted

We had difficulty finding a 4th meritorious playoff team this season. Four is enough; if the playoff expands, drop a regular season game.

I'm not arguing that we should expand it, simply that as long as the vast majority of postseason games are exhibitions, guys are going to sit out

Purdue DC Brad Lambert being targeted by Wake Forest and possibly UVA.  He has strong ties to WF.  Rumor is he is gone.  That means Purdue will have 4 DCs in 4 years.

Purdue DB coach Ron English the likely candidate to step in and replace Lambert, with DL coach Mark Hagen likely taking on more responsibility.  Both English and Hagen had Co-DC tags last season.

It would be nice to get some continuity on defense.  4 coaches in 4 years is troubling.  Holt seemed fine at first, then fell off.  Diaco was a disaster.  Lambert brought the defense back.  A few of those wins in early 2021 were because of the defense, while the offense was trying to find a groove.

Silver lining should Lambert leave is that he really never recruited any defensive players, so the fall out of him leaving should be minimal as far as losing players goes.

Yea, Lambert, English, and Hagen all had the tags.  Lambert was calling the shots though.

Purdue 2022 DE signee Nic Caraway has just jumped from being unranked in the Rivals 250 for 2022 to 105th nationally. Rated 4* now by Rivals. 

He appears to have the body to be an instant impact guy, even as a true freshman, and so hopefully he can follow right in GK5's footsteps.

I was saying that about Caraway a while back.  That guy was underrated from the get go.

Purdue now has two 4* DEs in the class.  We can replace Karlaftis and Mitchell's production.  And dare I say we are back to being the "Den of DEs".

I think Kentrell Marks is underrated at RB as well.

Yea big loss there.  He was the clear #1 going into the season.

Purdue has recruited the position extremely well though.  They have enough talent to to keep the offense potent.  Injury issues are the next concern.
