Join us as the first place Boilermakers visit East Lansing.

As I said the other day after beating Illinois, Purdue basketball was fun to watch again. That's what I want to see today. Win or lose, Ii at least want to be competitive against a team very similar to our own. The Spartans have struggled a little, so maybe we can swing another upset and the momentum gained can avalanche into a nice winning streak like it did with the Baby Boiler five years ago.

Remember, they started 1-0 in the league, lost a tight game in East Lansing when Robbie Hummel was out with the flu, then ran off something like 10 straight.I could live with that if it happened again.
