Nice going for a young group at Purdue. It sucks that they didn't win but those guys are loaded with potential. Can't wait to see them towards the end of the season!

Wow. Disappointed about the loss, but encouraged about the future! Go Boilers!

Please quit crying about James Mays being hurt and out of the game. That is all we heard of ESPN2. Not a word about us losing Watt, our most experienced man for the year and definitely no mention here about Chris Kramer sitting about all the entire second half due to a head injury.

it's so encouraging to watch this team after such a disappointing football season. the basketball team plays to its potential and is very exciting to watch. this should be a great season, and when these guys are juniors and kramer is a senior, watch for the boilers to make a run at a national title. the freshmen really showed a lot of promise for what should be an exciting future for purdue basketball

Very encouraged by tonight's game, even if it didn't end in a W. We definitely deserved to win that game though. Oh well, all I heard about that game coming into it was how tough Clemson's press was going to be. The next few years are bright, as the Boiler Men's Basketball team is headed in the right direction! BTFU!

Once again the boilers have let down the Big Ten. IU won one for the conference, but all the boilers could do was choke again.

IU barely holds on to the win against an unranked team on their own court! Purdue is extremely young and lost their first road game against the 18th ranked team.

The only one choking is you Roy and probably off the "crack " pipe that you just took a hit off of, I.U. shoots 18 more then G.T. at foul line and only wins by 4 at home.
On the road Purdue started 3 freshman and 2 sophomores. Our team captain gets hurt and doesn't score a point. Clemson shoot's 16 more at the line and we still take them to the wire. A great showing by a very young team. Keep it up Boilers !!!!!!! Yes, I AM A AMERICAN !!!!!!!

The young Boilers played a great road game tonight against a ranked team from a great conference. Our youth showed at the end, but Clemson made plays so give them credit. Our "kids" learned a lot tonight and I'm thinking we've got a shot in Assembly Hall now that I've seen both teams play. We went on the road and gave ourselves a chance to win with great defense and everyone stepping up to score points, esp with our leader Kramer going out. I doubt IU will be this competitive on the road against an unranked mid-major when they go to SIU.

****Oh come on! If Clemson would have hit there free throws they would have won by 20. They didn't even have there best player on the floor.
