Yeah, you'll SEE ME on 2/20-laughing about Purdue's loss to the Top Ten Hoosiers!
Boilllllllllllllllllllllller Up!
No, you won't be around on 2/20. You won't be heard from after your 2 losses next week. Then another loss at Ohio State the week after that. IU is due for at least 6 losses in the Big Ten, will drop out of the top 20 'popularity poll', and fall flat on their face at the end of the race; as usual.

This article only proves that purcrap has no leadership on the floor. The schedule will catch up with them and they will finish 8-8 or less in the Big Ten. IU on the other hand is headed for post season glory.

I akin iu fans to left-wingers -- they've nothing of value to offer the world except yelling their opinions louder than everyone else.

Obviously sometimes I pi$$ in the urinal on some of those dolts, but I do enjoy it so.

And regarding Wofford, they are a quality team. And that loss certainly helped form what this Boilermaker squad is becoming -- tough minded.

Its going to be as loud as it has ever been in Mackey Saturday afternoon.

These forums always end up a pi$$ing match. That's a shame. IU fans usually start and end it, but there's 5 times more of them so that's expected. Some Purdue fans slide into the urinal with them; probably affiliated with Purdue or they wouldn't invite the abuse, but obviously immature.
It is tough being a Purdue fan in Indiana with 90% of the IU fans being totally unaffiliated chest pounders and the media being comprised of journalists, IU grads or otherwise that can't relate to a technical university.
I do find it interesting how IU fans will 'eat their own' like a starving wolf with a new litter, just for suggesting that IU hasn't beaten a top 50 team and got whooped by the one they played. That they may not actually be the 7th best team in the nation (they haven't played like it; or that their coach cheated at Oklahoma and repeated the offense at IU. Embarrassing and disgraceful.
On the other hand, Purdue lost to Wofford. Embarrassing, albeit a bunch of freshmen in their tenth game together; but not disgraceful.
This year is one heck of a fun ride and it's only starting to heat up as both teams will now prove what they're really made of. One month from now, all will be laid bare and reputation or lack of it will have no bearing. I can't wait to see what happens.

SANCTIONS COMING
If the NCAA/Brand were going to punish Indiana it would have came by now. This was a minor infraction and the NCAA feels IU's punishment that they game the program was enough.
