    I'm just going to blame Danny hope for getting smoked by ND during his visit.

    Michigan State is a thorn in your sides. First Branden Dawson now Gary Harris.

    You guys will be fine. You guys have a really nice class. It's not as ballyhooed as IU's, but it's solid. I'm a bigger Jay Simpson fan than most too. I like that kid. Think there's room for development there.

    I don't mean to sound down on the incoming four guys, I'm extremely happy to have all of them, especially Ronnie Johnson. Losing Dawson sucked, but hey it happens. But I'd be a bald faced liar if I said losing a dual legacy recruit who'd immediately be the go to guy and be not much more than an hour from home to an out of state program, regardless of how good they are, didn't trouble me.

    If you want to go down there...Glenn Robinson III. Since he picked Michigan he has quietly blossomed into one of the top players in the state. Another legacy recruit that would be a go-to guy. I agree, it would sting you guys more than us. IU fans are no different. Remember Sean May?

    Right, but Purdue never really went after Big Dog 3 for whatever reason. At least with May there was the rumors about Knight threatening to cut Scott May out of his circle or whatever it was. Who knows the validity of that but it's at least a reason that doesn't reflect on the perception of the program.

    Whatever, at least it's over.

    That she hopes Harris gets run over a train.

    She said it was a play on words type joke, Purdue, train. Which, honestly is pretty clever. But still, poor execution.

    Harris' final call was between Michigan State and IU. I wish I didn't know that now.

    Either anonymously sourced reports are true and reliable or they aren't. Make up your minds.

    Not that it matters who the first loser is anyway.

    Ya, I still think all the reports are sketchy. Pretty disappointed he didn't come here, but I guess it did seem kind of likely he would go there. Definitely glad it was not iu or uk. Worst part is all the idiots who are saying some pretty mean stuff to him now.

    Jeff Rabjohns is the one who reported that it was down to MSU and IU, he posts on the Peegs board all the time. The Peegs board is extremely well connected and is who I trust for all my recruiting news. even for purdue fans it can be a valuable resource. HSE's coach is the one who said it was between MSU and IU fyi.

    I don't know exactly what the first part means? I would have always bet if my life depended on it that his final decision would be between MSU and IU, and that he would pick MSU. I never once said I expected him to pick IU over MSU.

    Hoosier fans can be rediculous sometimes. He's a kid. It's the biggest choice of his life. And it's his. I think sometimes fans forget that.

    Washburn said it was down to State and Purdue, you and cdash brushed it off. But peegs says it so it must be true.

    Perhaps because it is sourced and quoted directly from his high school coach?

    Honestly in this battle it seems the sour grapes are coming much more from the Boiler side than the Hoosier side. Which makes sense, we didn't need him like you guys did. Losing out on Harris, for Purdue, would have been like IU losing out on Zeller last year.

    No, Rabjohns said it and sourced the HSE Men's Head Basketball coach. Peegs didn't say a damn thing, it was just posted on Peegs.com.

    I haven't seen Hale in the game yet, but I haven't watched the whole thing. Sure looks like he's getting the shirt though, since Lawson has seen plenty of time.

    from the goldandblack.com twitter feed:

    #Purdue Matt Painter said he will 'wait and see' through five games or so but it 'looks that way' that freshman Donnie Hale will redshirt.

    I suppose I'll take that outcome. NIU's just not any good, 8 freshmen, first year coach, can barely call them a cupcake. Hummel looked great though, like nothing ever happened to his knee really. And holy hell, Marcius looks like a basketball player! Rebounding's going to continue to be a problem. Wish AJ Hammons was in this class.

    I honestly feel bad for Hale. The kid's going to be almost 21 before he plays a minute of NCAA ball. Helluva lot to ask of the guy.
