Man, this is tough. That loss to Rice was a really difficult one to swallow. Awful coaching ruined things for the players, who did almost everything right. I'm going to go over several things that make the rest of this season tough for me. Please comment with your own thoughts. Thanks.
1. Do we root for Purdue to win? The obvious answer would seem to be yes, but then again...6-6 probably keeps Danny here. You guys know that I've been a defender of Hope since he's been here because I felt like he hadn't been given enough time. I've changed my tune after the BS that just went down in Houston.
2. I want the best for these players, because they do nothing but leave it all on the field. The guys really like each other and that much is obvious. As a result, I want them to win.
3. I'm not a big Burke fan either, and I've always agree with most of you that he's made some bad decisions. The only good one he's made, IMO, is Matt Painter. It took far too much effort to get Burke to pony up the money to keep a great coach in West Lafayette. If Hope stays much longer, it wouldn't be out of line to send Burke out on the street with him.
At the end of the day, I think we all want to win this year and should root for it. And I know we will.
