Ryan Walters doubles down on 'truth' of Michigan investigation
Ryan Walters and his Purdue program could not hang with Michigan Saturday night. When it was all said and done, the Wolverines rolled to a 41-13 win as the Boilermakers fell to 2-7 overall.
One particular angle to Saturday night’s game came earlier in the week when Walters said the sign-stealing allegations against Jim Harbaugh’s program “weren’t allegations” because Purdue has “video evidence of what went down. While the NCAA and Big Ten have yet to rule anything related to the investigation, Walters is not changing his tune.
After the game, the first-year head coach said speaking the truth is “not like a big deal” most of the time. He says he’s “not shying about speaking the truth” and would say the same thing if he had to do the incident over again.

Purdue coach Ryan Walters on his sign stealing comments from Thursday’s coaches show: “Usually when you tell the truth, it’s not like a big deal.
“I’m not shy about speaking truth. If I had to do it over again, I’d say the same thing.”

After Saturday’s game, the two head coaches experienced what appeared to be a very brief parting handshake. It does not look like there’s any love lost between the two head coaches, but they will not see each other again for a while.
