Hope I'm wrong, but based on a # of factors I think this is a must win unless somehow we beat both UM and UW in the BTT, which is unlikely. It will be difficult since PU will also be playing for its ticket to the Dance, but we match up well with them. PU is not a quick team other than Octeus, so we should be able to lock them down defensively again.Well...I think we all know how important this one is. I've been vocal that I don't think this is a do or die game but it sure would be fantastic to not have to worry much on SS with a W here over Purdue.
Im hoping we get a NF or GW type game out of them. I dont know if my stomach will be able to handle a close game. I really want to see Ray get a chance to play in the NCAA tournament.Is there a team harder to figure out in the entire NCAA than Purdue? How are they 11-6 in conference while losing to North Florida and Gardner-Webb?
We're clicking at the right time and fortunately Purdue is choking away it's ticket to the big dance. I have no doubt we will win. They have been extremely unimpressive the last two games.
Agree. All hands are going to have to be on deck. Both Nunn and Hill are going have to play to the level they did when Rice was injured. They do that, and the team gets 15 to 20 from Rice, they'll be dancing.Purdue was winning @Ohio St for most of the game and let it slip away. I didn't get to watch them against Michigan St, but following the score they had a chance to win. I wouldn't call those 2 results extremely unimpressive. Same with us. I wouldn't call taking care of business at home against 2 teams near the bottom of the B1G "clicking".
