Guess if we had some inside emails address at DIA and did a serious email blast of pictures of the empty seats behind the press in A section that maybe they would take notice.. I have friends who have tickets in A and I can quarantee you someone is always in their seats or you don't get them again. I have heard they don't want to sell them to the scalpers and that is their right but to just waste them makes no sense and is not good for the program. I am well aware that we are not Kansas but that stadium was completely nuts last night. No reason why it isn't happening here.

I can't stand Tim Doyle...it's going to be very difficult for me to listen to him through the whole game.

At least we'll get some good mea culpas out of him regarding our post season chances.

Hell, they could build the fan into the big head.

I want to beat the living sh*t out of this Purdue team.

Someone dunk on Byrd and place their nuts on his forehead.

Purdue is really struggling. If we come out guns blazing (FOR ONCE) we should be fine. Just don't let them hang around and think they can win this game.

Fourthed. I hate their meat-mugging style of basketball. If the refs don't allow them to molest our players out on the perimeter we will win this one going away.

I think a big part of their success is the recent play of aj Hammons. If we double him like we did to mbakwe in the second half last game I really like our chances

The one caution with AJ is that he is a much better passer already out of double teams than Mbakwe...if we double hard and he finds open shooters, we better hope they don't knock them down.

Meh. I'd put just about every single player on Indiana as more hated.

Yep! I don't like Sheehey at all. I hate the way Zeller gets all the calls, every time. I hate Hulls' haircut. Oladipo gets on my nerves (but he's one that I'd like to have on the Illini).

And they have my worst favorite coach in the B1G by far.

Sixthed. My dad went to PU; I am tired of catching grief and losing that damn $1 every game. I would think our seniors would be REALLY up for this game considering their record against the Boilers. I hope they come out firing and keep their intensity, toughness, and togetherness going
