When will the Purdue Boilermakers ever get their football program straightened out? This year like every year since Joe Tiller retired they get worse as the season goes on instead of getting better. They continue to make the same mistakes and the recruiting is horrible.IU and Minnesota turned their programs around and Minnesota almost made the Big Ten playoff game this year. If it were not for key injuries IU would have been a good bowl prospect as well. Nebraska fired their coach for only winning nine games a year. Purdue has barely won that many games in four years.When it comes to hiring prospective coaches the administration seems to think that only obscure coaches can fit the Purdue family of coaches. How about trying someone from a power football school and see if that will work. It sure couldn’t be any worse than their last two hires.
INDOT tow plows can cover two lanes at one time.INDIANAPOLIS – INDOT is introducing new tow plows to its winter arsenal for combating snow and ice on interstates, highways and state roads.A tow plow allows one plow truck to clear two lanes at once, providing more consistent driving conditions and optimizing fuel usage, equipment and labor.The tow plow and material spreader are pulled behind and to the side of an INDOT plow truck, and the driver can control its functions.Drivers traveling on I-74 between Greensburg and Indianapolis may see the tow plows if severe weather strikes the area this winter.Transportation officials say motorists should not attempt to pass a tow plow if all lanes are blocked, but stay a safe distance and speed behind the plows.
