I don't get the hate for Purdue. They are an Indiana school and I still have plenty of friends that are Purdue fans. I don't want to listen to the UK people down here but I don't get rooting against a team unless they play us or hurt our chances. You guys spend too much time on forum boards if you are letting the crazies over at the Gold & Black board influence you. Lot's of good Indiana folk that root for Purdue out there and if we can't win it..I'm fine with them winning it. Bring a title home to the Hoosier state. Of course I would rather us win it but I have no problem seeing ND, Purdue, or Butler have success....as long as it isn't at our expense.

Any more posts like this one and you will be banned. :coffee:

I say tell me about your records after desegregation.

Exactly.  I always have to laugh when Purdue fans talk about our "old" banners and in the same breath mention their series lead......which only exists because of wins PRIOR to even our first banner.

Anyone saying Purdue isnt our biggest rival needs to go back and research IU basketball. These last few pages are the worst ever written on this site. If I were the sole voice they would all be deleted and the evidence buried. Some of you speak like you've had some kind of break down or you lost a bet with someone at purdue.  :coffee:

I agree. Ranking in my hatred order is Purdue, Notre Dame, Kentucky, Illinois and IU fans who go to other teams message boards and criticize our own players just to gain acceptance on the site.

^^ Hating ND over UK? You must have a personal reason!

There are very few programs I actually hate. If I consider it honestly, Wisconsin is probably the only program I "hate." I CANNOT STAND that program or their idiot-fest fans. I enjoy the IU-PU rivalry, though it's not been much of one for a while -- they're still our in-state rivals. I am basically disgusted with UK and it's brain-dead, schizophrenic fans who tout Calipari while ignoring all that he left in his wake, and his fear of playing at IU, lol. I'm equally (or maybe more) disgusted with UNC for its DECADES of fake classes and its aww shucks coach who claims ignorance of same. Illinois to me is basically irrelevant at this point. Who really cares about Illinois basketball? Worst for me though is the NCAA itself, see UNC.

Yes. But it would derail this thread. Started with Lou Holtz and the institution itself. Trust me I despise Kentucky but I also applaud some of what they did. They were tired of getting beat up and they went and hired the guy who could give them titles, F4's,etc....in a very close battle since we don't play Kentucky anymore I hate ND more...but barely.

Can't argue with that list at all. Especially 6. Their story was cute 9 years ago but they need to know the pecking order.

What gets me about UK is how many people who grew up in Southern Indiana that root for the Cats.  At least with Purdue it could be a situation where a family member actually went to school there.  I know a lot of Purdue fans that are fans for that reason.  I know of no one that went to UK, yet they have fans all over Southern Indiana that were born and raised here.  It's disgusting.

Down here in southwestern Indiana, there is as much pUKe stuff as their is for IU!

A while back our local Cracker Barrel had both UK and IU apparel for sale.....

3-Duke

I also despise New England in the NFL

Rico, tell me straight.  Are you a Purdue sympathizer?  Have a lover that only wears black and gold undergarments?  What?   And since tone doesn’t carry, just bustin’ rocks.

I am just around a lot of Purdue grads.  And I can't help it.  You know what they say...You can pick your friends but you can't pick your family.  It is one of those things!  Oh and I own no Purdue clothing.  It is not allowed in my house.

Pat Chambers got suspended one game for his shove. 

I actually like Pat Chambers.  If he had a bunch of talent he'd impress.  When he gets fired we should bring him on.  He has spunk.  Lol.

He's a better coach than Alford...gets more from his available talent, but then a lot of D1 coaches do...

I guess it’s who annoys you the most. In southern Indiana there are few Purdue fans and even the rest for what I have experienced have no quarrells who is the more successful program. UK...well I can go on for pages about the arrogance and the hypocrisy with their cheating etc. plus the lack of knowledge for the game....it is sad the success is wasted on people who aren’t smart enough to appreciate it. Besides PU has never stopped us from anything...UK...well if 75 isn’t enough there are enough other reasons to not like them.

Actually Purdue has...I still have nightmares about the '80 NCAAT game against them.  The Boilers went on to the FF, and we went home.  That '80 team we had was good enough to bring home a title.  Just sayin'  And I still hate Kentucky.

Anyone else read the piece about Kyle Guy and his anxiety,etc....pretty well done. Maybe getting out of town was the best thing for him because if he thinks/thought the spotlight is big for Virginia hoops what would happen at IU? 

We discuss it here and there but to me it takes a very special, tough minded kid to sign up for IU. Yes...tons of perks that last a lifetime for IU players but it can get pretty intense when every single play of each game is getting criticized.
