High Point At Purdue: The Open Thread Of Good Feelings

New, 618 comments

We're all feeling pretty good after the weekend. The men's and women's basketball teams opened with convincing wins. The football team beat Ohio State in overtime, making their fans look like a bunch of crybabies in the process. Volleyball dominated No. 2 Nebraska. Even Sunday night football was solid as Niko Koutouvides recovered a fumble in his first game for the Patriots and Rob Ninkovich picked off two passes, including one for a touchdown.

So why not keep it going tonight? We get another home game against High Point before hitting the meat of our non-conference schedule. People say we have a light non-conference schedule, but we could be facing three NCAA Tournament teams down in Puerto Rico with Iona, Temple, and either Alabama, Maryland, or Wichita State. We've got a true road game against a ranked Xavier team, a game against two-time National runner-up Butler, and a home game against a sleeper ACC team. Tonight is really a tune-up for that tough slate.
