BIG TEN TOURNAMENT CHAMPS! (But What About The Brawl On Video?)

Purdue won the 2012 Big Ten Baseball Tournament, but the late fight tonight could be costly. The video shows that All-Big Ten second baseman Eric Charles possibly threw a punch. In fact, he most definitely threw a punch. He was rightfully ejected, and that means he could be suspended for part of the NCAA Tournament.

See for yourself (thanks to Riley for getting the video already):

If Charles has to sit, hopefully it is for a game. It is almost certain that Purdue will host an NCAA regional and be a No. 1 seed, meaning we should have as easy of a game as possible against a No. 4 seed in the first round. We'll possibly play the Valparaiso- Illinois Chicago winner int he Horizon League Tourney tomorrow, and we've already pounded Illinois-Chicago twice. That's the type of opponent we want if Charles misses a game.

That's all forthcoming, however. in the meantime, we're Big Ten champs, Big Ten Tourney champs, and we're officially in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 25 years.
