Swanigan sneaks into the second round. Considering he should really be a freshman this year he has dramatically improved. He left High School a year early.
I think he has more room for improvement plus he has a great work ethic. The negatives are he is a little short and not overly athletic. However he has long wingspan
and a powerful base.
Best hands in NCAA also imo. Purdue is not that good at entry passes, but they dont have to be when they pass it to him.
Really? The weight and family issues have been pretty public. It is crazy though, can't help but root for the kid.
easy to forget age wise he's only supposed to be a freshman too when you hear him talk. vastly different personal circumstances but he's a lot like Myles Turner in that regard. still not gonna be really convinced he can be a plus NBA starter until I see it, but the way the kid works I'm not gonna count him out.
also, fun to win @ Breslin in a game that wasn't ever really in doubt and it not be that big a deal.
Keep and eye out for Nic Sipe, a new QB Recruit for Purdue, think he will be one of the best QB recruits we have had in a long time. #nationalsigningday
He has a high release, gets the ball out quick, makes excellent reads, and has a strong arm, I don't see any of his receivers breaking stride to adjust to his passes. Best thing about him is probably his ball placement, he really only puts it where his guy can get it, he is able to fit his ball through small spaces and plays with a lot of confidence. I am excited to see what he will do at Purdue.
We're the first top 25 team Maryland has played all year. This is a soft 20-2. Purdue can make this 2 top 25 wins in the week. That would be big. That would move us up into the rankings. It's a damn shame we lost to Iowa and Nebraska. We just didnt give them enough credit going in. It was obvious. The Minnesota game is a lot more legit to me. I think the Gophers are good but they're having a rough year. And we brought no effort in the Gopher game either.
We should really be 20-3 right now and a top 10 team in the country. Maybe if we knock off Maryland, people will see that.
They are kids, let them have FUN! They have one chance in their life to do this, who are we to take away their joy, who are they hurting?
I disagree. The fun is knowing that you're good enough to even be there having your announcement press conference. I would really hope that these kids let the schools know who they are going with before they go through with these antics.
