I know there isn't a lot to wrote about today, but there will be some more football updates this week. Also, I'll likely do an Open Thread for tonight's national title, especially since the city of Indianapolis will be shutting down to watch Butler.
In the meantime, I wanted to welcome everybody who is a new reader after stopping by during the Painter to Missouri saga. It looks like the Tigers got their man in Miami's Frank Haith. Compared to coach Painter it is an underwhleming hire. Haith overachieved with his one NCAA Tournament team in Miami, but greatly underachieved with others. I wish them well though.
The main point of this short article, other than to serve as welcome to all the new readers, is to give an update on the Purdue ICONS series. So far, I have received 13 ballots from people ranking their top 25 Purdue athletes of all time. I am compiling the list like the AP top 25 (i.e., a #1 vote is worth 25 points, a #2 vote is worth 24, etc.). 68 different Purdue athletes and coaches have received at least one vote so far. Here is the complete list of people who have received votes:
|Joe Barry Carroll|
|Joy Holmes Harris|
|Larry Brumbaugh (the first Purdue Pete)
If you wish to submit a ballot just drop me an e-mail with your ranked top 25 at firstname.lastname@example.org
