Anyone who has been reading this blog for more than a couple weeks knows about "The Syracuse Incident." The short version is that T-Mill suggested that the Orange may be a teensy bit overrated and that caused Syracuse fans to come here to defend their boys. After T-Mill's opinion was swayed, he posted the now infamous apology to the 'Cuse. Our fellow Boiler blogger J Money at Boiled Sports then jokingly demanded an apology from T-Mill for predicting that Purdue would lose in East Lansing. With all of the mea culpas flying around, you would have thought that Purdue was in Canada. "Sorey aboot that, eh."
However, Purdue is located in one of the ruder former colonies and I thought, "Why should Travis have all the fun?" Part of the Purdue blogging experience is to have J Money demand an apology from you, and I feel like an outsider having never experienced it. I'm sure Purdue Pete over at the fabulous Purdue Basketball Blog feels the same. I baited J Money with a joke about his age in the last Boilermakings installment, and despite my implication that he was old enough to have gone to high school with Moses, he did not take the bait. So, I'm going to take some time before today's Boilermakings to just write outrageous things about J Money and see what happens.
J Money stands in front you at the grocery store and writes a check for less than $20
Seriously, get a debit card. We don't have time for you to write all of that nonsense.
J Money drives slowly in the left lane, forcing you to pass him on the right
With his turn signal on, no doubt.
"Handsome Hour," more like Handsome 90 minutes
Always delivering more content than promised, like we have the kind of time to listen to it. This isn't the State of the Union sir. I can't argue with the handsome part though.
J Money is a Yankees fan
This one is actually true. Not that the others aren't, but he will admit to this one.
J Money gave advice to Kyle Orton
That advice? "Sliding is for losers. Winners hurdle defenders when they are about to be tackled. Now go out there and show Wisconsin that you are a winner!"

J Money wrote Nickelback's entire catalog
That's right, both songs.
J Money is boilerdowd
Have you ever seen them in the same room together? Me either. I think that boilerdowd is just J Money's IndyCar loving alter ego. The Handsome Hour is then the delusional ravings of a madman. He has two personalities; one with a radio voice, and his higher pitched compatriot who argues for control of the fragile psyche of this delusional mind.
I have more ridiculous accusations I could sling at J Money, but I think I have written his name enough that this will show up on the front page of the Google results if you search for it. I demand that you demand an apology J Money. After the jump, we get to the Boilermakings.
C'mon, Purdue Deserves Better
MSNBC's hoops blog Beyond the Arc feels like the Boilermakers aren't getting the credit they deserve.
Purdue Recruits Shine in Showdown
More about the game between Terone Johnson and Travis Carroll that T-Mill mentioned.
Every time I'd see him play he'd be doing something helpful. Something to help the team in ways that weren't being picked up by the box score. Points and rebounds count, they really do, and you have to have the right setup and rotation to consistently field a player who isn't going to help much on that end. But you would have at least liked to see the Grizzlies and Timberwolves try.
Instead, he sat. And never really got a chance to build on his 2003-04 campaign, Darko's rookie year by the way, one that saw him contribute a 19.4 PER and lead the NBA in offensive rating. Dork it up, scout it up, he could play. And rarely got the chance to.
I was sad to hear about this. If the Knicks do waive him, I hope he comes to the IU game to see his spiritual successor Chris Kramer play his last game at Mackey.
