Lately I have come under fire for expressing a different opinion than the majority of people on this site have about Painter. That is ok. I expected I would. However, I just want to clarify that I certainly HOPE I am wrong. I really really do want each and every one of you to be able to rub it in my face after we are playing past the Sweet 16. I want this program to succeed, and I want to beat the living piss out of Michigan tonight. Back to back wins over ranked opponents fighting for the conference championship would be great for our young Boilers moving forward and would even give us a decent chance at making the NIT. So whether you are pro-Painter or anti-Painter, we are all pro-Purdue and I for one am hoping for a win. In fact, with Terone Johnson owning Michigan and them being so young and playing for so much tonight (and possibly looking past us to IU), I actually am feeling weirdly pretty good about this game.
