OVC FOOTBALL: Hope excited to face EKU

(Continued)

MADISON COUNTY — NH: In the three years you’ve been head coach at Purdue, the program has had its share of ups and downs. But, to get to a bowl game last year and get a win, you must feel like the program is heading in the right direction.

DH: We are excited about the momentum from last season. We’ve had some signature wins (against Ohio State and Michigan), but we fell a bit short in 2009 and 2010 and didn’t qualify for postseason play. So, to get to a bowl game last year was huge for our team and our players. We have some momentum behind us right now. The fan base is becoming re-energized. We have more talent and depth on our team right now than we’ve had in a while. I think everyone is excited about the upcoming season.
