"Kramer said the Boilermakers will have a bit of a chip on their shoulder as they enter this week's Big Ten tournament, facing either No. 7 seed Northwestern or No. 10 seed Indiana in Friday's quarterfinal in Conseco Fieldhouse.
'We're not stupid," Kramer said. "We watch ESPN. You see the things they say about the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds. They're not giving us any respect since Rob went down.If we go on and win games, they can't give us that (lower) seed. If we go out and win games, everything will take care of itself."
This is the steely resolve that I like to see... plenty of work to do guys... get it done
