Purdue Athletics

Numbers released recently show Purdue’s football attendance dropped more than any other large-conference school this year.

It’s a worrisome statistic as the athletics department prepares to ask for tens of millions of dollars to refurbish Ross-Ade Stadium.

On this edition of Off The Field with Morgan Burke, we find out if our guest has any New Year’s resolutions for his department and how he’s planning for a vote next month that could reshape the way the so-called Power Five conferences interact with the NCAA and prepare to compensate their athletes.
