    I'm just praying Robbie stays healthy. Not because I want Purdue to be great ( I do ), but because it would be a cruel twist of fait if he gets hurt again.

    Any one see the exhibition game? I think Hummel is back. Sandi, Carrol, and Hale looked like they could make a decent front court. Also, can't wait to see AJ in action more, that kid can score.
    I watched it and was pretty pleased. Obviously it's just an exhibition, but one think I can say for sure is that I hope neither Lawson nor Hale take a redshirt.

    It doesn't really mean a whole lot, but Northern State defeats Butler tonight on a last-second three.

    This says two things: Purdue is better than Butler, and Butler probably won't be going to the NC game this year. That said, this is exhibition and Butler has lost to some questionable opponents the past few years. They'll be fine.

    Butler's got 7 new players. It's going to take time to mesh with each other. Many great teams have lost in these exhibition games. Syracuse lost to a DII school a couple of year ago. These kind of games are usually like the NCAA championship to these teams so you know there going to go hard especially against the runner ups. I definitely wouldn't count them out though. Butlers favorite time of the year is after New Year specifically March. Purdue is miles ahead of Butler.... for now at least.

    I was, for the most part, impressed.

    It looks like Hummel, Carroll, Marcius, and Hale will make a pretty decent 4/5 rotation with a little bit of Lawson (if he doesn't redshirt) thrown in.

    Lawson has a fantastic motor and special athletic gifts, but he doesn't seem to grasp the system yet on either end of the floor. If he winds up redshirting, it won't be the worst thing in the world even though it leaves the frontcourt pretty thin.

    I hope Painter noticed that it was really bad when someone other than Jackson or Barlow was running the point. Terone and Anthony Johnson are not point guards, and I hope we never see them used that way during games that count.,

    Speaking of Terone Johnson, he needs to start making some shots. I gave him the benefit of the doubt all last year, but if he doesn't start to finish, I think he's going to lose some major minutes to Anthony Johnson, who looks more ready to pick up the points left by Moore's departure.

    I loved Barlow taking and winning the tip.

    Jeez, Wisconsin feasts on defenses from the state of Indiana. They are parading all over you guys.

    PS: You guys are getting screwed on these blatant pass interferences the refs are not calling.

    Late response to the game, but yeah I am on the same lines of thinking as you guys.

    I don't want either redshirted.

    Terone is not where he should be, does not really seem to run the point well, can not create his own shots, and misses open shots. I am worried that he will never get any better.

    Bigs looked good, I am happy with Sandi's play, I like that we have a physical big man, the jumps that he has mad with his agility have been remarkable.

    Washburn says it's between the good guys and Michigan State for Gary Harris

    https://twitter.com/#!/JeffWashburnJC/status/134049316896653313
    On the eve of signing day, it appears Gary Harris will decide between Michigan State and Purdue. One report is that Harris tells KY no.
    Hopefully the proximity to home and the family ties do it. Playing Harris AND Dawson would suck.

    There are a ton of "reports" out there. I don't think any one really knows although I would guess MSU or PU.

    I've also read "reports" where it's down to UK and MSU. None of this stuff means ****.

    For the record, I think IU is out. I do think it is probably between MSU and PU, and I think he will ultimately pick MSU.

    I think it would be very difficult for him to go to iu. I think State and Purdue are pretty close, but I'll give us a slight edge. I know it is important to be near home to him. Other than that I am just guessing. Although that is what every one else is doing too. I don't believe any reports that come out.

    Word is leaking out that it looks like it's going to be Michigan State. Tough loss for you guys. That could have given you another class to build on like the Hummel/Johnson/Moore class. Either way, you will be fine. Painter gets the most out of his players.

    It does sound like MSU, but I'm not completely sold yet. Just like when Painter to Missouri was a sure thing.

    I still like your class even without him. As I'm sure you guys can tell (as I don't hide it), I have great respect for Matt Painter as a coach and he has proven he can develop players that weren't highly ranked. All AJ Hammons needs is motivation and proper coaching. With that, I think he could be a really good player. Solid, under the radar pickup.

    I get the Izzo resume, but if the stuff about him wanting to be close to home and be familiar with future teammates is true then State doesn't make a ton of sense. I dunno, I won't believe it until there's some kind of actual announcement. Maybe I'm just in denial, we'll see.

    Well that's a rational reaction. Jeez, it's not like he went to IU or anything.

    Think that's irrational don't look up Painter's daughter's reaction. I know you're just a high school kid Maggie, but c'mon.
