    Not really that much of a raise, as Painter cleared 1.9 mil this year after incentives, and if Purdue had made it to the Sweet Sixteen he would've made over 2 mil. It really was about changing the culture of the program as a whole. Gene Keady referred to it the other day as "nickel and diming" that went back as far as he did.

    Burke said in the presser today (and I paraphrase)

    We will never spend as much as an Ohio State, but we are going to narrow the gap.

    I imagine "this time" the buyout clause in Painter's contract will be huge. And that's good, because the bigger the buyout clause, the better it is for recruiting.















    And I do mean "this time"

    Yes,but this is 2.3 million in the first year, with yearly increases who knows what kind of bonuses still to be added to that...hopefully they remembered to add a "don't get slapped around by a fourth-place CAA team" bonus...

    Picture from yesterday's presser . . . Kelsey Barlow sure looks happy, doesn't he? At least he's there . . . for now . . .



    According to the article, LewJack found out at 11:30 in the morning that Painter was staying. He could have saved me a lot of angst.

    Your boy Paul Lusk is the new coach at Missouri State. Congrats to him. It appears he is well thought of in the coaching community.

    He was up for the NIU job as well, but then withdrew from consideration, which prompted some to think he was in line to replace Painter. I guess we have a Purdue => Mo. State coaching pipeline now.

    Oh, and the hot rumor now is that Pat Knight is going to join Purdue as an assistant, seeing as he and Painter are such good buds.

    He's all yours. Kent Benson will surely be upset he isn't getting the job. He's been kissing Painter's butt for quite a while now.

    I think it's purely rumor. Painter and Knight are good friends, Pat doesn't have a job right now, and Purdue has an opening so this kind of rumor is almost self-generating. Add in the Bob Knight factor (not to mention yesterday was April Fool's) and it's too tempting for people not to put it out there.

    Pat Knight checks out a Purdue practice
    1:02 PM, Oct. 28, 2009

    http://blogs.indystar.com/purdue/200...ball-practice/

    Matt Painter welcomed a very special colleague to Purdue’s Tuesday afternoon practice — Texas Tech coach Pat Knight and his staff, who flew from Lubbock to West Lafayette on Tuesday morning.

    Painter, a Muncie native and a Delta High School standout, and Knight, who played at Bloomington North, were AAU teammates and have known each other for a long time.

    When they were in high school, Painter sometimes spent the night during the summer with Pat at Pat’s mother’s home in Bloomington to eliminate driving time from Painter’s Muncie area home to AAU tournaments in southern Indiana.

    “He is a good friend of mine, and it was good to see him,” Painter said. “I’ve always admired what his dad (Bob) has done and what Pat has been able to do as an assistant for his dad and then taking over at Texas Tech. They always send me tapes when I ask for stuff.

    “It’s what coaching is all about, sharing ideas. They just wanted to come up and see some other people do some things … maybe just pick up a drill. It’s a good part about coaching. You always are trying to learn new and different things. . .”

    We can rest easy . . .

    Pat Knight hired as head coach at Lamar

    I played against Pat Knight a few times in pickup games in Bloomington. He was extremely young at the time, probably just a freshman or sophomore in high school.

    phew...i shudder at the recruiting pitch we wouldve given to recruits..."hey, come play for a guy that is just of much of an a-hole as his dad, but also not as good of a coach..."


    also, had a thought about the Butler game: as bad as Andrew Smith looked vs uconn, would Carrol, Bade, or Marcius have looked any better? (I doubt it...especially the latter two)...if I'm right, how can Stevens pick out the competent 3-star bigs, while we seem to get those that just don't look like they have "it"

    Smith did and does suck, there's nothing "competent" about him besides being tall. There's no doubt Purdue's gonna have a gaping hole at the 5 next year (Ryne Smith recently said Hummel may see minutes at the 5, yes, really), adding Andrew Smith in place of say Bade doesn't improve it any. I'm against pulling a scholarship out from under a kid in general, but if there's a competent post down at Vincennes or any other JuCo you've gotta get him in over Bade. Bade's got 2 years of eligibility left, go play tight end somewhere. I've got some hope for Carroll, good 4 year contributor, good lower body (did a solid job on Sullinger because of it), get bigger on top and use his decent for his age arsenal to put up 10-12 per next year.

    Purdue offered North Central's Ronnie Johnson (Terone's little brother) recently, he's in the 2012 class. I don't know much about him other than people have been saying he's starting to get a lot of buzz around him. I'm assuming he'll accept the offer. Also assuming Purdue's out of the Gary Harris race officially now.

    Need to get after some quality bigs soon Painter.

    seriously. ease up on the guards! is this guy really that great? per rivals he only has offers from mid-majors and butler.

    and does this make us over signed? im not going to cry if bade leaves, but the conventional wisdom is not to trade big for small...

    The hot rumor now is that Dane Fife will be announced as a Boilers assistant next week.

    Kelsey Barlow is officially back with the team.

    I find that hard to believe. Fife recently interviewed for Bradley and Kent State, and is currently in the running for Eastern Michigan. Unless he desperately wants to succeed Lusk at Missouri State, doesn't make much sense.

    I must say, it would be pretty funny, considering he turned Crean down a year ago. And he'd probably get paid more at Purdue. But I don't see it happening.
