    Tremendous kid and family. I've known them since Romeo was a 6th grader. Just good people. My take right now is it's going to be Indiana. But that could change, obviously.

    Huh? Indiana and ISU haven't played since 2006---a 73-66 IU win. Indiana leads the series 18-5. Now, ISU is 3-3 versus IU since 1998-99. But that is far from the way you described.

    Note: ISU last beat Indiana in 2000; 63-60 in The Hoosier Classic.

    Indiana will crush ISU.

    Damn I am old. I was at the Hoosier Classic game, and was also at Terre Haute when ISU and Michael Menser beat the Hoosiers. ISU also was leading IU by 19 points at Assembly Hall when IU stepped on Menser's head and knocked him out of the game, then winning at the very end. So I guess I meant in the last 20 years. 3-3 is pretty darn competitive out of the Sycamores. In summary, IU better be ready to play.

    Agree. 3-3 vs IU, from an in-state mid-major is pretty good. As for this years game, though? You should always be ready. But ISU is not going to be very good. This game won't be close.

    He's a freaking Nostradamus! Of course Purdue isn't a powerhouse like Indiana State or UT Martin. I'm hoping Purdue can keep it close till halftime.

    You guys are letting one game dictate an entire season? Why? or are you just haivng some fun? Either way, I'd tread lightly. Shit like this usually comes back to bite ones ass.

    Bad take, huh? Wish I'd known those muther****ers were gonna go all "Golden State" on our ass. Meh, not the last time I'll be wrong. Just one of those games.

    Just having fun...Jaydumbass has been dissing Purdue for a while now and deserves all the crap he gets. Somehow Purdue doesn't have "athletes" which is interesting given how they are seemingly a decent team in this young season. Carson Edwards looks like an athlete, Ditto V. Edwards. Nojel Eastern appears somewhat athletic. I dunno maybe athlete is Jaydumbass talk meaning jumps high and runs fast but can't play ball.

    You have to have Haarms in the athletic discussion. Especially for how mobile he is for a 7'3" guy.

    @UPnorth Illini

    Did you ever accept that bet when you said Illinois would win 8-10 conference games?

    I did not.

    Troll job aside, I also don’t think two down to the wire losses tells me Illinois can’t go 8-10? I mean...guy throws an inbounds bass correctly and they are 1-1?

    Lolololol. Finished the year 8-5 and unranked with one win against a team with a winning record.

    I agree, but only after we know who’s gone and who’s not. I swear everything g we talked about goes down the gutter as soon as someone we didn’t expect stays/ leaves.

    I predicted MSU to win the Big Ten.



    I was right.
