You don't tolerate it by being an insufferable prick yourself?
A week away from a sweep. Maybe by 2015, IU will be able to steal a game or two from the Boilers.
Ironic that a guy calling himself "hoosierguy" tries his damnedest to make all Hoosier guys look bad.

Look, I agree that guy is a dick. But four wins in a row has gone to your head a little bit.
For the record, your dominance in this series (if you can really call four wins a row dominance) ends next year, not 2015.
We could very well get you in Assembly Hall on the 23rd, Watford will be back. We almost got you last year with a team full of freshman, and for that game you guys had Moore, Hummel, and JJ.
If we don't get you this year, I'd bet my left nut (I don't like it as much as the right one, I'll be honest), that we at least get you in Assembly Hall last year.
There's a reason Purdue had gone 10 years between wins at Assembly Hall before last season.

I don't get some of this. Personally, I hope Purdue stays competitive once we get Cody, Yogi, and Hanner in here. It'd be boring to just pound the crap out of them every year. This isn't like IU vs. Illinois or IU vs. Kentucky where I'd just like to ****-can them every time we play. IU vs. Purdue games are a lot more fun when they mean something.
If you check out my posting record, I have the utmost respect for IU and their program. I just threw in a single line of harmless trash talk leading up to a rivalry game and hoosierguy got all butt hurt for no reason.
The 2015 comment was just meant to needle that dick. IU fans are just way too sensitive. You and cdash seem like good guys. But hoosierguy makes the entire Hoosier Nation look bad.
I hope and think that IU will turn it around quickly. Hulls is a hell of a player, and I could see him contending for Big 10 POY before it's all said and done. Watford is decent. Oladipo and Sheehey look like they are going to be very solid Big 10 players as well. Other than that I don't see a whole lot to be excited about on the current roster.
I don't care at all about recruiting to be honest. Nobody was very high, nationally, on JuJuan Johnson and E'Twaun Moore when they were coming in as recruits, and they turned out pretty decent. You can throw out the names Zeller, Ferrell, and Parea, but the reality is they could turn out to be fantastic players or they could be complete busts. It is basically a crap shoot.
That Purdue class was a top 10 class in the country on every major recruiting site.
Watford is better than decent IMO. He's one of the better scorers in the conference.
We'll just wait and see, nobody should be butt hurt though. Purdue is better than IU this season as they should be.
I don't know about that. Just about every recruiting site I read always said the same thing about Johnson, and it went something like this:
Johnson could have the most upside of the four.
And it pretty much has turned out that way.
Cody Zeller, McDonald's All-American! Congrats to him.
Agreed! Love watching Cody play when me and my cuzzo go watch random HS games.
Also, Trey Lyles is the ****.
Down 32-24 at the half to Michigan.
Maybe the worst first half of basketball I've seen out of IU this year. Horrible. Michigan was trying to keep us in the game.
Yeah, I slept through the second half.
Well, so much for turning the corner.
I didn't know we came back until this morning, lol.
You missed a great rally (and a pathetic display of free throw shooting on Michigan's part.) I thought Fisch was going to have a heart attack.
The View from Crisler Arena
Note: I was wearing maize and blue with my IU shirt on underneath.
I was much disappointed by what I saw of the IU team yesterday. Never did I notice hands up on defense (yeah, so call me old fashioned, The Wolverines did it plenty). Players leaving their feet to throw passes and post players turning into double-teams and still trying to take the shot.
If they don't know fundamentals by now then I start to worry about the Coaching. Don't get me wrong, I think Crean is a winning coach and will be right there....but common, fundamentals guys. These are not first year players out there.
Sidenote: I ended up sitting next to a U of M football recruit for next year (he signed his LOI for Michigan) DE Brennen Beyer of Plymouth. THe dude is a shaggy redhead and TALL. After sitting and talking with him, it's gonna be fun following his development.
If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..
I'm losing my patience with this group. Losing to Iowa and Northwestern at home is unacceptable, not to mention being swept by both teams.
