He struggled in recruiting and the D line's performance was pathetic on getting pressure on the quarterbacks that they played against this year and The players did not buy into his coaching Philosophy

When you don't recruit any D lineman you reap what you sow.

We were top 10 against the run. It wasn't obvious until the very end that he was failing on the Recruiting Trail. so if anyone says they saw it coming, they're full of it.

Glad it happened but had no clue Riley would fire a buddy of Banker. Thats a good sign for the future

never heard of the guy till he was fired, but glad he is gone. Seems like he wasn't earning his $300,000 salary

It's nice to see MR evolve if you're not getting the job done.

Not saying I'm surprised... But, I just didn't realize there was any problem there. But, once I started looking at the information that is "out there", I can see why they might be wanting to make a change.

I thought because of stopping the rush all was alright, but who am I to know.

I am not privy to any inside information and I don't speculate on how well anyone is doing as a result. In other words I don't pretend to know what I don't know to feel like a big shot lol! It does look like a good move after the facts that were released came out.

Pass rush is but one part of DL play. They stopped the run effectively and contained most scrambles. The blitz packages or lack thereof fall on Banker, not Hughes.

Because he was not the weak point in the pass defense.

It's at home and I think we will be understanding our new system and coaches by then.

Purdue is deeper into the first season of a new staff. And it is at home where the crowd is more of a factor.

Later in the season. The mini game is #1 and we'll have some kinks to work out. BUT I think we win both. With good coaching we'll finally put Mini in our rear view mirror.

I thought we did really well with the defensive and offensive line, plus the most in-state recruits since 98!

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.
