The Purdue football season gets underway Saturday at home against Eastern Kentucky. The Boilermakers are coming off their most successful campaign of the Danny Hope era, one it which they went 7-6 and earned their first bowl berth and win since 2007.
That success has heightened expectations heading into the new season which, as WBAA' Sam Klemet explains, the Boilermakers are fully embracing.
It’s been a whirl wind past few days for David Boudia.
Saturday, the former Purdue diver captured gold at the London Olympics. That was followed by a blitz of media interviews there and then traveling back to the United States for some more Q and A with the New York media.
But, as WBAA’s Sam Klemet reports, finally, Boudia is able to take a slight breath being back home.
Even with two medals dangling from his neck, it still hasn’t really sunk in for David Boudia that he is an Olympic champion.
