    Default Purdue 2011-2012 Athletics thread

    I think it was time for this.

    So Rob Henry becomes the latest victim of the acl curse. Sounds like TerBush is the next favorite.

    What are your hopes for basketball?

    Let's start a new thread a bit more upbeat. Gary Harris on campus October 1st weekend, Notre Dame game.

    Nothing like a good old fashioned recruiting showdown between Indiana and Purdue. I guess Michigan State is in there, but I keep hearing he will stay in state. It would be great for either school to get him. He would vault Purdue's class into top 10 nationally (to stay, probably) if he chose the Boilers, and he would cement IU's class as the #1 class in the country if he chose the Hoosiers. If he chooses MSU he just pisses the whole state off.

    For what it's worth, Dave Telep (ESPN'S recruiting head) said in a chat either today or yesterday it was between State and Purdue but it was 10 day old info and 10 days is a lifetime in recruiting. It was in an ESPN chat.

    Yeah he caught a firestorm for saying that too. Gary Harris' dad refuted that rumor and said he didn't know where it came from. Telep went on the defensive on Twitter a day later after (I presume) all the Hoosier fans lambasted him for it.

    If Harris goes to IU or Purdue, I will be absolutely shocked. The scuttle butt since July has basically had him going to MSU.

    I thought it was mainly Purdue/State too. Figure it is more likely St, but I am just ready for this to be over.

    In other athletics new, the volleyball team starts their season tomorrow (later today) and I'm excited. We're raising the Elite Eight banner!

    Yeah, Harris and his family have played this rather impressively close to the vest. The Zellers did their due diligence but it was almost a given he'd be a Hoosier, no one really knows with Harris. I try not to be biased with this kinda stuff, but I honestly do think he winds up at Purdue, just a gut feeling.

    I dunno, people say he's going to State and visiting the state schools to keep people off his back, but it goes the same way if he's actually already decided and it's one of Purdue/IU. You can read it both ways. Wherever he goes, everything I've read about him makes him seem like an outstanding kid so I hope he succeeds regardless. Anyway, I was thinking about his rankings and all and came to the conclusion Harris would be Purdue's highest ranked recruit since....Mike Robinson. Yeah. Dude was even a McDonald's AA. Just goes to show how fickle the rankings game is.

    Also, speaking of recruiting, he's obviously no longer committed but last month I read that Kyle Molock's just trying to get colleges to look at him in open gyms, let alone high D1 schools. He apparently shredded his knee, all 3 ligaments, I thought it was just his ACL. That's awful, from playing at an upper tier major conference program to just trying to find an offer in a few short months. Hope the kid can find a place that fits and helps him succeed.

    Hopefully he'll find something. Jared Jones from BSU has a similiar story. Committed to ND and during the summer before his senior year he broke his leg. Scared off ND, so he busted his hump and got another offer from Ball State. Since then all he's done is be a 3 year starter, soon to be 4, and been a 16pt 8reb guy that really helped the program stay afloat.

    Hopefully he listens to his doctor and his knee, and eventually it will come back to him. Maybe look at a prep school for another year to give him a little more time to heal.

    Vball swept Baylor tonight! Also, we are playing...vcu in the morning. I hope we demolish them.

    One more thing - saw several members of the bball team at a dining court, and the game tonight. The freshmen are TALL.

    from http://purdue.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1257506



    Lawson, Hummel progressing

    A pair of Boilermakers coming off serious injuries look good so far in individual workouts, Painter said.

    Senior Robbie Hummel and freshman Jacob Lawson are at different points in their recovery from ACL surgery and Achilles' tendon surgery, respectively.

    "Rob looks fine," Painter said. "He looked like he had good lateral movement. He had good spring, kind of stopped on a dime for his pull up. Just looked good. It's one of those things where time always tells, but from not seeing him for such a long time ? he looked pretty good."

    Lawson, a 6-foot-8 forward, ruptured the Achilles' in his right leg in January.

    "He didn't look like he had the same spring to him when I watched him in high school, but for somebody who tore his Achilles and has only been going here for about a month in terms of being released for everything, I thought he was great," Painter said. " thought he did some good things and worked really hard in the individual workout we had on Thursday."

    I have to wonder if Lawson will be a redshirt. His athleticism and explosiveness are the major strengths of his game.

    Lawson's not redshirting. If the only reason for him to do it is "not being as athletic" then it'd be dumb, this team has very little legitimate size. He's a month out from being cleared to play off an Achille's tear, no **** he's not as athletic right now, that comment's getting kinda blown outta proportion. It's August 1st.

    Gonna be a longggg season. At least Bolden looks solid and healthy, just put Wiggs as QB. Also, Auburn down 14-21 to Utah St ate half. And seeing Nebraska on the BTN is really weird. Feels like it just now hit me that they're actually in the conference.
