Illinois At Purdue 2013 Basketball: GameThread

T-Mill is going back to school for this week's game.

I would like to thank the Paint Crew for once again setting up the alumni Paint Crew section for the opening game of the Big Ten season. Last year was a blast and this year you get three for the price of two as myself, Mrs. T-Mill, and Miniature In-Utero T-Mill will be participating in the festivities.

Yes, I will be loud tonight. I don't know any other way to be. I have the camera with me for YouTube purposes and I will be tweeting throughout the game.
