Is this the biggest Purdue basketball game since the Baby Boilers left? Purdue last made the NCAA Tournament in 2012 with Robbie Hummel, but was solidly in after a good, but not great regular season. This year it is right on the Bubble, likely needing one big road victory to solidify its spot. With Minnesota now slipping ever closer to the sad side of 100 int he RPI we could have five "bad" losses, making games like tonight even bigger.

So strap in. It is never easy in Bloomington. May the spirit of Chad Austin guide us.
