Iowa winning on the road again tonight...
Finally! The legend of Billy Oliver strikes! :D
we need that fat kid from the other thread to provide some inside toughness
Disappointed we lost and sucked for the first 10 min, but happy we at least put up a fight.
Remember Kyle Molock? He tore his ACL again, poor kid.
I heard that, that sucks.
I only have 3 semesters left here, I don't know if I'll make it.
It wasn't pretty, but Purdue fans should be getting used to that. The way Iowa has been playing lately, I'm ecstatic to take the regular season sweep against the Hawkeyes.
Ya at this point I am just happy to win. Mackey was fun tonight. Not nearly as loud as the Wisky game though. It was ridiculously loud there in the second half. Very proud to be a part of the Paint Crew.
Wow, from what I am hearing Derek Willis is down to Purdue and Kentucky. I hope that he picks Purdue but many believe UK has the edge...
He would help this team out tremendously in the future. He can play the 3 and the 4, and I think he would start his first year, I know it is 2 yrs away but we should have a very solid team by that time.
So many new players coming in with a very solid game soon, I have no idea who will be starting, but there should be some very interesting battles going on.
Bryson vs RJ, AJ vs Raphel, Lawson vs Sampson
I think he is going to UK.
I'll take your word we've got good players coming in. All I can tell you is the prospect of Barlow and Byrd leading this team scares the crap out of me.
Willis is going to Kentucky.
I do think next years team will be kind of iffy, but we should bounce back the season after, especially with Hammons and Simpson having a year under Painter.
Purdue and Kentucky are about as polar opposite as you can get in terms of just programs, let alone Willis's future. The kid's going to UK. Whatever, have fun getting slid further down the bench for the next 17 year old top 10 commit. The kid can play ball, but the hype, thanks to his decommitment is just not logical. He's not Gary Harris, he isn't THAT good, not even close.
You don't schedule a Friday afternoon press conference at your Kentucky HS with a game (and a year of school left) the next night to say you're leaving the state when (allegedly) one of the biggest factors of backing out on Purdue was in-state pressure. Would welcome him at Purdue, but if he doesn't want to be a Boilermaker I don't want him to be a Boilermaker.
I assume UK is going to be the choice, but I am still hoping that Purdue is where he finally chooses to go, there have been so many times recently where I thought player X was a clear cut commit to a school but that is not how it went. I will say this case is different though since he was a decommit.
As far as the Gary Harris comment, I would not be so sure to say that, I saw both of these guys play, as far as skill and excitement it was about even between the two, add to the fact that Willis was dominate the whole weekend and Gary Harris got showed up by JP Tokoto, and Willis was a year younger, I think it is a lot closer than you think.
With a strong summer again, I think he will be ranked a top 20 player in the country.
Wow... came down to Purdue and Kentucky... man finishing 2nd again... this stuff is really starting to hurt.... the thing is that he actually seems like a Purdue guy, oh well on to the next 2nd place finish...
