    I think he meant it's a good time for Purdue to face IU while the Hoosiers are reeling and have zero confidence on the road.

    Does the Super Bowl top the UEFA Champion's League final in terms of world wide significance? I'm not so sure.

    Four more wins gets us in the tourney. If they can't get four more measly wins then my confidence in Crean will be severely shaken.

    I look forward to attending the IU recruit classic tomorrow though.

    No, but in viewership it does.

    I wonder if Purdue will hang a banner in Mackey for beating IU tonight?

    The trajectories of the two programs are heading in different directions. I always thought it was funny how some Purdue fans were arrogant enough to believe that they were going to be the premier team in the state for all eternity. Tradition and fan support matter. Crean capitalized on that to get great players that will win many games and entice even better players to attend IU.

    My favorite part of the game was the Hummel airball at the end to really ice up the stinker for them. Their offense is beyond horrendous.

    For all the talk of Crean not developing players, Painter really has nothing in the post-JaJuan/E'twaun era. I think this a dumb rivalry when it's completely one-sided, so I hope their next recruiting class pans out, because if it doesn't, they're going to get beat senseless by IU for a few years here. I'm just incredulous at how bad guys like Travis Carroll are. I'd take Tom Pritchard over him any day of the week. And don't even get me started on what a joke Kelsey Barlow is.

    That said, again, I really do hope (and think) PU's next two classes pan out. These games are more fun when the teams are of an even talent level.

    As for IU...

    Pros: Remy Abell continues to show why he deserves minutes. I'm not quite ready to say he should start over VJ3 yet, but he should eat up more of his minutes than he has previously. Abell is still a bit green, but he's great for two things. One, he knows not to overdo it, so you won't catch him jacking up the same ill-advised shot that VJ3, Hulls might. He plays way more in the flow and confines of the offense. Two, he's the only person besides Oladipo who can get to the basket. That's absolutely imperative in the tournament. IU has to get to the line/rim, or they're toast. Abell should be a fun one to watch moving forward.

    Great to see Oladipo get out of his funk. He did have his one patented dumbass turnover, but other than that, just played a fantastic game on both ends of the court. What 'Dipo needs to keep in mind, moving forward, is that it's not a full package in terms of offensive/defensive success. If his offense is lacking, he needs to be able to lean more on his defense. With him, you either get a great performance in both, or a terrible performance in both. I just want to see him keep building on his defense to fuel his offensive game. When he makes the good decisions he made tonight, he's deadly.

    Sheehey is just going to be such an awesome player to have on the court these next few years. So smart. Just does all those things you need to do to win a game. Salivating at the prospects of pairing him with those 2012 recruits and a developing Abell, or Zeller if he lasts that long before going pro.

    Cons: Christian Watford has been in the cons column ever since the calendar hit 2012, pretty much. What the hell is going on with this kid? Terrible shots, selfish, zero effort given on the glass. How many times did you see Crean yank a completely fresh Watford last night because he just wasn't giving them anything? At this point, it's getting embarrassing. I don't think Watford will ever have either the physical or mental toughness required to play in the NBA. Way too inconsistent, and it's a shame because he has the talent/skillset/body. He just looks like a kid who's coasting and cool with it, and that's not acceptable. Maybe he'll pull a D.J. White and man up, mature and put together an unquestionably tough senior season, but I'm not seeing any signs yet. He stepped up for a few games early on, but has since fallen flat.

    Hulls still scares the crap out of me, but that's never going to change.

    For all the praise I've seen for Elston lately, he still has the lowest basketball IQ of any player I've ever watched. I'm glad he gives his all and can throw his body around, offer valuable minutes. But damn, does he do some dumb things out there. Dumb shots, dumb fouls, dumb angles, lack of awareness on both ends of the court. Maybe he's a Rhodes scholar in class, I don't know. But I see a really dumb player out on the court. Granted, I still appreciate the minutes he's logging, effort he's putting in. Honestly, if he just had any finishing ability whatsoever and even the basketball IQ of Tom Pritchard, he'd be a pretty good player (not great, not very good, but pretty good).

    Tom Crean still doesn't understand how to use a timeout to kill/curb a momentum swing.

    Free Remy. Kid can play. Maybe a little Shelvin Mack in him? Seems that way to me. He's got a great energy to him on defense that the team feeds off of. Him, Oladipo, and Patterson next year could be a formidable trio when we need a defensive stop late in a game.

    Also, Watford, even though I like him, is not DJ White. Let's not forget that White had ZERO consistency his 4 years at IU and still developed into a great player by his junior season if we're really being honest. Watford while very talented, just isn't that type of guy. I like him and I'm glad he gave us a commit when we desperately needed to land a big recruiting class and his commitment was a big reason that class was so high, but he just doesn't have that sort of toughness that DJ had.

    Any Wat to NBA talk/ideas have been gross exaggeration IMO. Crean was talking it up during a time, but he's got way too many issues, not least of which are lack of athleticism (srength, hops) and weak motor.

    Hollowell will be better than Watford by his sophomore year. Which is good, because Watford will be gone by then.

    Devin Davis has been great this year I went to a few games he is getting a lot better at dribbling and finishing.

    If he keeps progressing I could see him move to SG aswell as playing a lot of SF.

    Hollowell is no doubt much better but the depth of the IU team will be pretty scary in a few years. But need to keep hitting the gym once they add some muscle they will be a pretty stout combo along with the other kid from up north(I no nothing about him though

    It's close thanks to Asia becoming bigger soccer fans but more people watch the Super Bowl on television than watches the UEFA C.L. final.

    As for the IU/PU game, I didn't see one second of it. Doesn't sound like I missed much. Too bad it wasn't a noon start.

    I DVR'ed the IU game but never actually watched the recording. During the game I tuned in a few times when the Pacers were in commercial. On one of those times I heard the announcer saying in Indiana IU vs Purdue was bigger than the Superbowl. I kinda snickered and turned back to the Pacers game to see if they were out of break yet because that was the game I was watching live.

    If my choice is to watch the SB or IU v Purdue it's going to have to be a pretty special season at IU for me to skip the SB for it. I'm interested enough to DVR the IU game... and if I check in on commercial breaks and it looks close then I might watch the DVR later.... But right now I pick the Pacers over IU games....

    IU is back to respectability but by no means are they likely putting together a special season with a deep playoff run.

    Nothing would surprise me with this team come tournament time. A first round flameout against a mid major wouldn't shock me. A trip to the Elite Eight wouldn't surprise me. We have proven we can beat anybody, and we have proven we can crap the bed against anybody.
