Bob Knight: It's as if the NBA raped college basketball

As always The General is spot on, the NBA is destroying collegiate basketball. I'm sure he will be the recipient of undeserved grief as a result of the rape reference. How I long for the...

Who Are Your Favorite Purdue Basketball Players Over the Years?

With all the negativity and infighting going on around here recently, attributable to the crummiest year for Purdue athletics since 1907-08 (I'll bet no one here remembers that season), I...

Tom Reiter 1953-2014 R.I.P.

I was shocked to just learn that longtime men's assistant basketball coach and associate athletic director Tom Reiter passed away on Jan 25th after a battle with cancer. Tom was an assistant to...

Bruins Fans Hoping Clappy Gets Fired So They Can Send Alford Home to B-Town

This stuff is hilarious. Unfortunately, Clappy's wiki page has already been changed but thankfully the Bruins copied it into their article for posterity's sake before it was altered. I do wish...

Northwestern quarterback and United Steelworkers attempting to form union for student-athletes

This ought to get interesting. I can think of a multitude of reasons why this is a bad idea but I can see their point that coaches and athletic directors become millionaires and the schools clean...

What can Coach Hazell do at this point in the season to regain confidence and give us some hope for the future?

I am a small business owner and though I have employees the buck stops with me. In other words, if I don't get it done I don't get paid, we don't eat, and my employees don't either. I can blame...

The Entire Danny Hope Interview

WLFI has posted their entire interview with Danny Hope, if anyone interested. It is in six parts, each about 5 minutes in length. It's more of the same in that he basically takes little...

Jack Hatcher Passed Away

I just received an email from Krannert that Jack Hatcher recently passed away after a battle with cancer. This isn't sports related but I thought some of you might possibly be interested as anyone...

Is the Humiliating Loss to IU on Matt Painter?

A caller to the Dan Dakich show this afternoon who said he was a Purdue alum asked that as a question. I've always supported CMP and will continue to do so but I do think it is a valid question...

What do you guys over here think of the Maryland and Rutgers Additions?

It's not real popular over on our side of the fence. Seems most of us are skeptical of Maryland but willing to accept them while the reaction to Rutgers has been almost universally negative. I...

Speaking of Purdue football, we saw some real football today.

Why are you proud of being a Purdue alum or student?

It's kind of boring with no sports to discuss and the passing of our most famous Boilermaker set me to thinking about what a Purdue education has meant to me. It has given me the opportunity to...

In Memory of Shadow

Everyone here surely remembers TMill's kitty Shadow who passed too quickly. Shortly after Shadow passed we were blessed to rescue a little kitty who looks just like Shadow. I own a business here...

Anyone interested in following the IU-UK game? We could talk on this thread if so.

I'm assuming TMill is okay with that. I'm hoping for a big UK victory and for the return of Indiana to 20+ loss seasons. To meet the minimum word count I'll throw in the chorus to our favorite...
