Thanks, Seniors.

This has been a tough couple of years for Purdue's basketball program...and while too many Purdue fans have laid blame at the feet of the Senior class, you won't hear me do that. A few years ago, Painter had a few recruiting misses...make no mistake, Terone Johnson wasn't one of them. Out of Indianapolis, North Central, Johnson was the 51st-best player in the nation...

Game Preview: Gophers vs. Purdue

Last time the Gophers played Purdue they dominated for about 30 minutes or so.  Then Purdue realized - wait, we really suck at this jump shooting thing, we should totally attack the rim using dribble penetration and then the Boilers almost won.  So this one is pretty scary, given that as uneven a game coach as Matt Painter is he most likely understands what happened last time out...

Player apathy takes over as Purdue falls at Penn State, 79-68

Hey! That sucked! Purdue travelled to the Bryce Jordan center and found a way to lose in familiarly frustrating fashion, 79-68. Both teams have three Big Ten wins, but seem to be moving in drastically different directions. The Nittany Lions suddenly looks dangerous on a three-game winning stream (including a win over #23 OSU), while the Boilermakers dropped their fourth consecutive...

Late mistakes, sloppy play almost cost Gophers first conference win

MINNEAPOLIS -- Two games into his first Big Ten season, first-year Gophers coach Richard Pitino has already learned quite a bit about the new conference. On Sunday, Purdue taught Pitino and the Gophers that no game is over until the final buzzer.

Boilermakers Bucked at Home, 78-69

The Big Ten season began today for Purdue with a loss to the 3rd ranked Bucknuts from Columbus. Somehow, despite being the same class as Terone Johnson, Aaron Craft is still playing college basketball and still nuisancing his way to numbers like today’s seven points, ten assists, eight rebs and four steals. As I watched this game, I found myself just marveling at how fricking...
