Tonight is safely a must-win, as a loss to Gardner Webb would be completely demoralizing after the Vanderbilt and Notre Dame games. Right now Purdue just needs something positive to happen, and even if that positive is a victory over an opponent it absolutely should beat then it is a step in the right direction.

I am covering a high school game tonight, so Jumbo Heroes will likely take you home with the post-game wrap. We're also on BTNPlus, so hopefully the Cliz is back in the saddle for the radio stream.
