    Disappointed but not surprised.

    I'm a little dissapointed in Coach Knight letting Vitale be his mouthpiece.

    Ah well, more sun shines on Jerry Yeagley this Saturday and that's something that everyone should appreciate.

    From Inside The Hall:

    When youíre the athletic director of a school thatís never won a national championship in basketball, you are forced to creatively sell your program as some sort of juggernaut. That, my friends, is exactly what Purdueís athletic director, Morgan Burke, did recently at a tipoff dinner for his Boilermakers.

    Speaking about how wonderful a time it is to be a Purdue basketball fan, Burke served up this one-liner:
    ďIt should not come as a surprise, because Purdue leads the conference with 21 Big Ten championships. Nobody else has 21, not even the people down south of Indianapolis.Ē
    And here is my rebuttal: ďIt should not come as a surprise, because Indiana leads the conference with five national championships. Nobody else has five. And the people north of Indianapolis are still waiting for their first.Ē

    Nice try, Morgan.

    While I think Painter's a good coach who will always have Purdue on the top half of the Big 10, this 5 man recruiting class was his chance, like Thad Matta's class at tOSU to make his true mark. If they fall short this year, Johnson's likely gone for the NBA and Purdue is going to be left with a bunch of role players.

    It'll be interesting to see how they handle that.

    Bawa Muniru cleared to play.

    from www.idsnews.com

    Tom Crean just tweeted freshman center Bawa Muniru is eligible:

    No comments from Friday night's game?

    I know one thing. I am already a huge Derek Elston fan.

    Re: Hoosier Hoops

    Didn't see anything but Elston sounds like he really impressed.

    IU just got a committment from Will Sheehey, a 3 star wing(I think IU's going to run the all wing offense next year.)

    Watford and Creek did as well but I expected them to. Wasn't sure what to see from Elston so he was a very nice surprise. Watford and Elston give them some nice athleticism and depth in the front court.

    I saw that on Sheehey.

    David Williams de-committed last week. I'm sure most saw that already though.

    Re: Hoosier Hoops

    I thought played pretty well for most of last night's game. I changed the channel when they were up by 20+ points and then I changed it back and they were only up nine. I'm not sure what happened towards the end of the game, but I don't like the fact that they let that team back in. I guess it's mostly because they're young.

    I'm liking Rivers a lot. He's better than I thought he'd be and I'm glad that Hulls gets to ease into the point and doesn't have it all thrown on him as a freshmen.

    Re: Hoosier Hoops

    I agree Razor, the only real dissapointments last night were Dumes and Pritchard had ugly games but that will happen.
    Rivers played a little bit too fast from the sound of it and IU turned the ball over 18 times(26.4%) which is abysmal and is where they were last year.

    That said, I'm still thinking a 14-15 win campaign is certainly doable. Should be interesting to see what they do in Puerto Rico this week.

    I'm thinking .500 is a realistic goal for this team. An NIT appearance would be huge.

    Re: Hoosier Hoops

    With at least 5 players at least 6'9", interior defense should be improved. I like the potential of Bawa Muniru, at least on the defensive side of the ball. More depth than last year, too. The growth process cannot be expedited. It's going to be interesting.

    Agreed. I would be thrilled with an NIT appearance at this point.
