    Default I love Matt Painter!

    Watching Purdue play right now is pure joy for me. They combine all the things I love about basketball: aggressive man-to-man defense, a deep bench, frequent substitutions, a fast-paced style of play, extreme physicality, good shooting, and a bunch of really likable players.

    Agreed.

    What I love so much is that he's a good coach who coaches the exact style of basketball that I love.

    That's profiling.

    I don't think Coach Painter teaches this technique, but I never get tired of looking at this clip of Chris Kramer from the Paradise Jam

    During that game, the announcers said that Kramer was going to stay next year at Purdue and play football. They seemed serious about it.

    There's been some talk of that. From what I've gathered, if Kramer doesn't make it to the NBA (which is a pretty safe bet, despite his talents) then he would use his fifth year of eligibility to try out for the football team. He is certainly athletic enough, and it's been done before (Roosevelt Barnes comes to mind.) Chris was a 3 sport star in high school.

    The thinking is that he would play safety, as Purdue loses a lot of its secondary to graduation this year. However, I don't know if any of this is "official" or just speculation.

    Purdue up to #4 in the AP poll, still at #6 in the coaches poll. The Boilers host Wake Forest tomorrow in the ACC/Big Ten challenge.
