Darrell Hazell is on a tough road rebuilding Purdue, and he's willing to try unorthodox things. Earlier this year, for example, his team rode a bus for a couple hours to simulate a road game. (The Boilermakers only road game this year, at Notre Dame, ended with a 16-point defeat.)
Now, due to some slow second-half starts, the Boilermakers will practice... halftime:
Purdue's struggled in third quarter this season, so Hazell said they'll simulate halftime during practice to try and correct issues.

Purdue hosts Iowa on Saturday, so we'll see what practicing halftime does for their second-half starts. It would seem to me sitting around would take away actual practice time, but that's just me.
