Tonight is a very difficult challenge, but it is not impossible for our Boilers to go into Ann Arbor and win. They did it last year against a senior-dominated Michigan team that went on to win the Big Ten title, and Purdue is the only team that has won up there in almost two years.
So here is your Open thread for the night. Let's see if Purdue's young freshman can take another huge step in their growth by pulling off a huge upset.
