    LOL at rico being salty because Purdue lost.

    Morgan withdraws from NBA draft

    Great news. Now watch Carsen Edwards announce he's returning later this evening so Purdue can steal the spotlight.

    I like the picture of Illinois players celebrating in front of nothing but empty seats. That's such an Illinois thing.

    Getting as many opportunities as he can; nothing wrong with that.

    Seriously, why are we talking about Purdue football in a thread about IU baseball? Purdue message boards exist, you know.

    I thought it was Illinois tonight, then the Michigan-OSU winner, then the Purdue-Minnesota loser, then we'd have to beat the winner of that game twice.

    Thanks for the back-handed compliment, troll.

    Way-Too-Early Preseason Top 25!

    The 40-0 talk started in 2013, when they brought in a freshman class that featured 6 of the top 20 recruits nationally. It ended after their second game. That season looked like it was going off the rails until their improbable run to the championship game. Then they brought back almost everyone and a year later we were the biggest Wisconsin fans on the planet for one night.

    Way-Too-Early Preseason Top 25!

    A few weeks ago there was an article talking about the projected preseason top 10, and for UK it said if their two projected second-round picks come back it could be like 2014-15 again (their "almost perfect" season). I think anyone with an IQ above room temperature can get published by ESPN these days.

    Morgan withdraws from NBA draft

    He wasn't invited to the combine, even as an alternate, right? I just don't see why anyone would draft him right now.

    I think their fondness of Painter is sentimentality more than anything else. Next year will be his 14th season. In this day and age, that's a long time for a coach to be in one place. He started with a hard-luck team that lost 4 players to season-ending injuries. Then came the Baby Boilers, and of course they got to enjoy our struggles while they prospered. The post-Robbie Hummel era brought more struggles, and some even thought Painter would be fired. Roosevelt Barnes helped him escape that crevice. It's just not all that common to see a coach have that kind of roller-coaster track record. We just fired a coach because of that. I'm not sure what Painter is like personally, but he never struck me as someone who would burn bridges and always try to be the smartest guy in the room like Crean. The fact that he's a PU grad obviously helps him there too. Purdue has a lot of immature internet fans. These are the people who have the all-time series record written on their arms and instinctively throw out things like "dusty banners" and "irrelevant" any time IU is mentioned. I remember reading GBI after we hung 97 on them at their place and later that season in the days leading up to their game in Bloomington. They were seriously depressed about how bad we were going to beat them, and I almost felt bad for them. I hope the coming years bring us more of that.

    Rumor floating around.

    I guess I'm not sure why anyone expected anything to come from this. Every year this is a topic, and every year nothing happens. It's like the annual discussion about the high school tourney someday going back to one class.

    Rumor floating around.

    We won't play a regular season game with UK as long as Calipari is there. He's not going to agree to anything we propose unless it's a game at UK and a game in Indy. Amazing they've been able to get multiple teams to agree to a road game and a neutral site. They did the same thing with Baylor a few years back.

    We don't care. Go beat your chest on a Purdue board where you belong.

    You may not have to worry about it. At the rate this is going, you may not even have to reschedule your plans the week before then.
