We have been told for a long time that Purdue absolutely matters in that recruitment, so it isn't out of the realm. I just also think close to home, player familiarity, etc. wins out. Its recruiting though so who the hell knows.

I’d feel a lot better if Purdue didn’t have Furst committed already. Not an impossible obstacle for Painter’s pitch to overcome, but still an obstacle nonetheless.

Lovie's best roster. He needs to go .500 or better here. It's not unreasonable to expect it.

Forde skewers Nebraska's AD about his whining:

Very Turge-esque whining from Nebraska, match made him heaven when Hoiberg bolts for greener pasture.

Can't we just kick Nebraska out? Give them some contacts to the MAC AD's for their new conference and help them get to a level they can be competitive in Football and Basketball?

I'm cool with that. Somehow Purdue manages to lose to those corn fvckers (in basketball) even when they're God awful.

They've yet to beat us in Mackey but we've struggled at Pinnacle Bank. Painter is 2-3 there.

Sad to hear that former Hoosier, Damon Bailey, father ws killed in a motorcycle accident. His mother is n critical condition..

The father of James White, one of our 3 headed RB's from early 2010's died in a car wreck recently. His mother in critical condition from same wreck. Sad all around. James is/was a great representative of UW.

What a funny ass article....Dude just shreds Moos and NB...I mean for christ sake-----NB plays in the West. Yet they are 23-29. If I were Moos, I;d be thanking the Big 10 for not putting my drowning program in the East.

Dude is a tool, for sure.
