Yup a win is a win, and oh well, we have had positives to take away from this year, but we need more I think.
Why so SERIOUS
Painter's all of a sudden working hard to get another 2013 PG. Scouting Petar Rusic and Cornelius Elder, neither of which seems to be anything special. There's an open scholarship but kind of makes me wonder who's going to transfer given how late he got in on these kids. I'm not excited about using a scholarship on either one to be honest.
I don't think Ronnie's a one and done.
Do we have any shot tonight against MSU? Should i even pop a beer open for this one? I feel like I might be wasting the beer.
Yeah, when I saw that he was targeting a 5'11 PG I was kind of surprised, but the player fits the Purdue style of play, Cornelius that is, but it seems hard to find where his minutes will come from.
Ronnie is still young, we have Scott coming, I guess he could beat out AJ for minutes possibly, but then that makes the 2 position kind of packed.
It will be surprising, also I would keep in mind that Cornelius is a 4 star football recruit, and he might be more interested in a school where he can play both sports, kind of surprised he did not just go and focus on FB, but oh well.
Why so SERIOUS
Elder's apparently signing somewhere on the 20th, Purdue's got a hoops only offer and Georgia Tech's open to letting him play both I guess. And he cancelled a Purdue visit this (I think) weekend. So seems like it'll probably be GT, and honestly, good.
I'd take him just for the name...Corn Elder...scary as hell...could have a cheering section "Children of the Corn..." or the fans can dress up as spooky little kids, freak opponents out...
lol @ Byrd's statline...
Ready for the game tonight. Hoping to go 2-0 vs Illinois this year
Cornelius Elder commited to Miami, playing both football and basketball
whatever. the NIT sucks anyway.
you better destroy that damn locker room Painter
I hate this season.
I like Hammons. I think he will stick around for 2-3 years, but man...you guys have to surround him with better talent. Outside of Byrd, you have no shooters, and I'm not sold on the Johnson brothers quite yet. Painter is a good game coach but his recruiting leaves something to be desired. And it's pretty clear after the rivalry debacle you guys have pretty much given up on the season.
