First time poster on here, but hear me out. If Bo does not screw us against Villanova that is one more win possibly 2 on a neutral site which gives us 17 wins instead of 15. The reason why I say this is because this was a young team learning how to win, and because of those 2 losses our psyche was shattered. Because of those 2 horrific losses maybe Purdue can win against EMU or Xavier, but instead we lost 2 games there. That puts us 18 wins, a win today against Nebraska gives us 19, and puts us on the bubble, with a chance to make it.
Instead we are looking at NIT or worse CBI for which at this point Id rather just go home and cash it in and regroup for next year. It gets worse though because Purdue failed to make the tournament teams like Michigan and the team south of us are going to use this as a recruiting tool for guys not to come to Purdue. Also not making the tournament means this team will not have the experience to compete at the highest level in March meaning we are at least 2 or 3 years away from making any noise.
Maybe this is farfetched but in a season that has been up and down, and has been killing me, and seeing this team fail when the talent is obviously there hurts. I feel like this man deserves a brunt of Purdue hating, thoughts boilermaker nation?
