Purdue drops three spots this week.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

For the third week in a row Purdue split by winning its midweek game and losing its weekend game to a ranked opponent. It is an unfortunate refrain that had better not repeat itself during the NCAA Tournament, which is, unfortunately for us, played on weekends.Unlike the last three weeks, the voters finally dropped Purdue.

In the Coaches Poll Purdue's loss to Indiana drops the Boilers three spots to No. 19 as Baylor, Duke, and Indiana flew past.
