Puerto Rico Tip-Off Championship: Purdue Vs. No. 15 Alabama Game Thread

It is time to roll the Tide. Two years ago we played at Alabama just minutes after Mark Ingram won the Heisman Trophy. We got past the electric crowd for a huge win thanks to Chris Kramer. Once again, we face the Crimson Tide after they got good football news, this time it will be them getting the No. 2 slot in the BCS rankings. Instead of playing in front of a frenzied crowd at Coleman Coliseum we will instead be playing them in front of an apathetic sea of blue seats at Coliseo de Puerto Rico.

At stake for us is likely a top 25 ranking for the coming week. We may earn our way in there anyway, but a win over the No. 15 team after beating two probably NCAA teams would be even better. Tipoff is at 7:30 tonight on ESPN2, so let's erase the bitter taste of losing to Our Most Hated Rival.
