Does anyone know where Purdue is rated?

Well, Purdue's top two scorers graduated, so they obviously weren't ranked despite their top flight recruiting class. But just be patient, they'll get better every year for at least the next 3 years.

But enough fighting against those morons (Bob Nite, and all those people similar to him... there's gotta be hundreds of them on these boards, it seems). This article is talking about the Bulldogs! One comment that I feel like making about them: they lost their coach, but the replacement is from their system. Now, this doesn't necessarily indicate future success at most schools. However, this particular system has carved out a niche reputation that should help them keep recruiting the kinds of players that this stacked team already has! Undersized, shoot-the-lights-out, hard working players are surely taking note of how well they would be utilized at Butler. I'm looking forward to great success this year, along with (possibly after a year or two to reload) more in the future!

Go Butler!

Hey, great job beating Ball State -- a program spiraling downward so fast it couldn't get out of the Muncie sectional this season. "Oh, but we beat IU and played real good againt Florida in the tourney!" Good little mid-major. Now take your Nerf and go home.

Dear Mr Wipple (aka, IU fan):
Keep drinking your cream-and-crimson kool-aid and get over yourself. Sounds like you can't handle the simple fact that the Butler program has had MUCH more success than your beloved cheatin' hoosiers over the past few years.

Great to see the Indiana teams moving up! Hopefully Purdue can get up there soon and we can have 3 schools representing the state of Indiana in the top 25 of college hoops. Good to see all of the in-state schools working to put Indiana basketball back on the map.

Perhaps the new coach can clean up the off court behavior that cost them a 7 foot center

Too bad it will all be irrelevant after the Sycamores destroy Butler next week. Just like last year.

Nice to see the recognition, but now we need to take care of business to stay there. Whipple, I guess Sweet 16 berths don't mean much, huh? Way to go, Dogs...

Nice showing ISU, I see that this year you didn't resort to poking Graves in the eye to get a win.

And Not a fan: the 7-foot center wasn't any good, with BU or WVU. What decent center thinks he should be shooting 3's all day?? His offcourt problems were just an indication of the fact that he is a moron and belonged with other idiots in the wonderful state of West Virginia, not a reflection on Butler Basketball as a whole.

Glad to see BU in the top 25, looking forward to when OSU comes to town as Matta's favor to the program that jumpstarted his career.

Go Dawgs!
