I actually had them going to the Sweet 16.  This literally may be my worst first round ever.  I am getting destroyed.  

You had the Aztecs beating West Virginia?  Ballsy.

Purdue plays Edey, Ivey, Gillis, Newman, and Thompson. Those are 5 guys that are 1st or 2nd year guys.

It’s been discussed on multiple broadcasts regarding how young they are. They have zero seniors. 

Purdue will be good going forward. They will only get better from this past year.

I filled mine out as quickly as I could and tried not to think about any of the games. But one I actually did stop and think about was Villanova-Winthrop. Wishing I had that one back. 

LOL,,,,Winthrop was a chic upset pick according to the talking heads.

Agrees. This group was ahead of schedule IMO. Didn’t expect a top 4 B1G finish until next year. 

IU will hopefully be owning you guys again soon. 

But I did have PU going to the E8 in my bracket.

Honestly a really messed up year. This may be the most mad March madness ever.

Show me something other than an opinion piece that proves Purdue statistically is significantly younger than then the vast majority of teams. IU has one senior and plays a kid who should be in high school...along with 3 other true freshman and three sophomores. By your definition Race qualifies as a sophomore (so make thet 4) because he was hurt almost all of his sophomore season so if you don’t play it doesn’t count. That leaves us with only Rob and Al as upperclassmen. Cute excuse for underperforming in a tournament down the road from your campus to a program who’s never won a tournament game, but I’m not buying it. The only reason Purdue made the tournament is because they had the easiest schedule imaginable. Perhaps Purdue simply isn’t nearly as good as you think they are.

My 8 year old daughter picked Oral Roberts. She thought the name was funny. 

My daughter was 6 when Florida Gulf Coast made their run and she picked them because she like Florida  Of course, we all had a good laugh before the tournament, but she ended up getting the last laugh.  She did take them too far though,  She had them going to the title game.

The only reason? Lol. I do think our schedule was beneficial but Purdue absolutely overachieved this year. As others on here have said, Purdue was the 3rd youngest team in the tournament. Why you continue to argue against that fact is beyond me.
