I'm your typical kool-aid drinking Purdue alum with an uncanny ability to dispense unsolicited thoughts and insights.

What I lack in ability to articulate my thoughts in a grammatically sound and clear manner, I make up for with my...uh....ummm... Okay, I admit it. I don't really have any other redeeming qualities. Just don't tell TMills.

Bubba Day's Replacement Identified

2

Former Indiana All-Star and Winchester HS forward Neal Beshears (6'6") looks to be the top candidate to walk-on for Purdue next season.

Kerrigan Selected 16th Overall

2

The Washington Redskins picked up Ryan Kerrigan with the 16th overall pick. The pick means Kerrigan will likely play LB in their 3-4 defense. Kerrigan was the first Boilermaker to head to Washington since Mark Fischer in the 1998 draft. We'll have more on Kerrigan and his new team shortly.

Puerto Rico Tip-Off Field Set

5

The field is set for the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, which is playing on Nov. 17-20 in San Juan. Joining Purdue will be Alabama, Colorado, Iona, Maryland, Temple, Western Michigan and Wichita State. Also factoring in Butler, Xavier, and ACC/Big Ten Challenge game, Purdue's pre-conference schedule should provide some solid competition.

Great article on Jay Simpson

"We didn't capitalize when we had the foul trouble on (JaJuan) Johnson, we didn't capitalize. You've got to capitalize on Patrick Bade and Travis Carroll. You've just got to do that and we didn't do that." - Tom Crean, following IU's 5th consecutive loss to the Purdue Boilermakers

As we predicted, the dominos are beginning to fall. 2013 wing Basil Smotherman Jr. will join Bryson Scott and Kendall Stephens. For what it's worth, he'll be a consensus 4 star talent. I'll have more on Smotherman's commitment and what the means overall shortly. But for now, bask in Matt Painter's recruiting success!
