    4 Fresh & A Big!

    Yes, Carson Cunnigham became a good baller for Purdue. He is now making a name for himself coaching college basketball. He is currently head coach at Incarnate Word.

    I heard that Attorney Rudy Guiliani is looked into the bad call by the refs and determined that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez may be behind this.

    Justin Smith is now a Razorback!

    I guess Justin will miss the metropolis of Bloomington.

    Note to Pork Chop....

    With the experience of Purdue's Purdue's juniors and sophomores in addition of the good newcomers, I think this mismatch is going to continue. Throw in Purdue's defense, I don't see any IU domination coming anytime soon. It's been over 1500 days since the last IU victory over Purdue and still...

    Nojel Eastern in transfer portal

    Defensively, I’m not concerned. Purdue as a team buys into defense. As far as the newcomers, Purdue’s newcomers in recent history have contributed with a lot of minutes. The sophomores and juniors have played a lot of minutes. Ivey and Morton will see a lot of minutes. Ivey is a star in the...

    Nojel Eastern in transfer portal

    Nojel was a good fit at Purdue. He had plenty of opportunities to score, even in the Painter's motion offense. The problem with Nojel was between his ears. His confidence was jacked up. He was afraid to take shots. He passed up so many shots it was unreal. He could not get the ball out of...

    Nojel Eastern in transfer portal

    Purdue will have depth at every position except the center. Purdue's sophomores and juniors have played a lot of minutes including Sweet Sixteens and an Elite 8. However, losing Haarms will have more impact than Eastern when it comes to depth at the center position.

    Nojel Eastern in transfer portal

    Purdue will have experienced players at every position 1 through 5. The sophomores and juniors have played a lot of minutes since freshman year including the Sweet Sixteen and Elite 8 games. However, there is no depth at the 5. That is the only position I'm worried about if Williams gets into...

    Nojel Eastern in transfer portal

    If Eastern can get his head right, he can be scorer. His jump shot is broke, but I’ve seen him take folks off the dribble for a dunk. His confidence is so jacked for some reason he stopped even doing that.

    Nojel Eastern in transfer portal

    Where did I say he was an All-American? He ain't going to win the Wooden Award but down low he is going to get his points. If teams decide to double team him, he is an excellent passer for a big man, and Purdue will have plenty of shooters to pass to.

    Nojel Eastern in transfer portal

    Nobody is saying that he is Shaq, but he good footwork and another year of experience. The main issue is depth at the 5 since Haarms left. Dow is a project and I’m afraid they recruited another one.

    Yes, Haarms got his degree in Political Science in 3 years.

    Nojel Eastern in transfer portal

    Name one center that can guard Williams next season. If you can name one, it is only one. There is 13 other teams in the B1G. As far as Morton, the point guard in the motion offense does not have to be a scorer. However, it would be nice if they can at least get 8 to 10, ppg; attempt wide...

    Nojel Eastern in transfer portal

    2 year starter actually but anyhow, Purdue will not struggle next season. Purdue will have a lot of sophomores and juniors with a lot of minutes. No one is going to able guard Williams in the post. Plus, Ivey and Pennsylvania 6A Mr. Basketball, Morton should see a lot of minutes; may even...

    Nojel Eastern in transfer portal

    Not sure what jimmygoiu is talking about, no Purdue fan is suicidal over this. For me as offensively inept as Nojel is I'm not going to miss him. A swole, 6'6", 225 basketball player should be dominating. I think his problem was between the ears. For some reason, he never seemed confident...

    PU gets UCLA QB grad transfer

    O'Connell is in my mind a late bloomer. He did well to finish the season. However, I really like Plummer who came in after Sindelar went down. He seems to be talented in his own right. Penix may be talented but since he has been hurt a lot, I have not seen much of him, not that I watch a lot...

    PU gets UCLA QB grad transfer

    I never have seen Burton play, but I thought Plummer was Blough-ish in his mobility with a good arm. Don't know about Burton, but Plummer and O'Connell have some game experience against good teams. However, I think Plummer comes out as the starter. Either way, there is some serious depth at...

    what high school did you attend what year

    Yeah they averaged 95 points per game. But remember they they did this in high school with 8 minute quarters. Also against good competition against the Gary and Hammond schools. The 1971 East Chicago Washington Senators was the best high school team in America in any era.

    what high school did you attend what year

    Best in Indiana high school history, yes. I would argue that team was the best high school team in the country in any era. Trivia: Both EC Washington graduates, Tim Stoddard '71 and Kenny Lofton '85 are the only 2 people to play in both the NCAA Final Four and the MLB World Series.

    what high school did you attend what year

    Growing up in East Chicago made me very proud of those 2 teams, EC Washington and EC Roosevelt. I was 5 and 6 years old when my parents took me to those '70 and '71 sectionals. I don't remember much of the games but the atmosphere I can remember was something else. As far as Jim Bradley...
