Once again, this is the battle of seething hatred between the bitter rivals of Purdue and Iowa. You wouldn't think this would be much of a rivalry in this sport because Iowa tends to suck at basketball, but after last year's regular season finale loss in Iowa City they have earned our hatred. Therefore, it is time to shout DOWN WITH IOWA from the rooftops.
To beat Iowa we cannot have any of our collapses. It has been over a week since our last game and more than 10 days since we last fell apart with a double-digit second half lead. Hopefully, those events are forgotten int he eyes of the players and we can get down to the business at hand. We won't win the Big Ten conference tonight, but we can take a very long step towards losing it. We're the better team int his game, so it is time to come out and act like it.
