What Two Bad Years Really Begins To Mean

Days Gone Bye-Bye?   The trajectory of this Purdue basketball season has sparked some diverging opinions on where things stand, how much of the blame belongs at Matt Painter’s feet and how much time he deserves to straighten things out. Those topics can really be debated endlessly without any concrete resolution (short of Painter, you know, choking a guy or violating numerous...

Video: Kansas Battles Back to Beat Purdue

The Kansas Jayhawks were out shot and out played by the Purdue Boilermakers for 37 minutes last night, but when everything was on the line the Jayhawks relied on their defense to make it to the Sweet 16 in the 2012 NCAA March Madness Tournament. Purdue had the ball with 1:44 left in the game and was up by 3. They wanted to waste as much time off the clock as possible so they dribbled...

The Minute After: Purdue

Thoughts on a 85-74 win against Purdue: This started with a dominating performance from the Hoosiers. The entire first half — and for the first 10 minutes or so of the second — Indiana didn’t give Purdue any room to breath. It was go-go-go, score-score-score. And when the Hoosiers weren’t grabbing defensive rebounds, pushing the pace and getting easy buckets in transition...

Happy Hour- I’m back

February was an extrememly busy month for me and I just didn’t have time to write happy hour. But now that February is ending I’m making a triumphant return. I was looking at KenPom’s ratings and Purdue comes in at #29 overall. Now normally when you think of Purdue you think of a hard-nosed defensive minded team that will grind out wins. But this year he has them ranked 88th...
