Ohio State At Purdue: Protect Mackey GameThread

Purdue hosts Ohio State in a huge Big Ten game.

Michael Hickey

I have a good feeling about this one, although usually when I voice that opinion it blows up in my face and Purdue ends up losing by 30. Still, this is a very winnable home game and one that can go a very long way toward Purdue climbing back into contention for an NCAA Tournament berth. It is a very long climb ahead, but it can be done.

I am in my usual seats at Mackey so look for me on Twitter.
