One of the more popular Twitter feeds to follow among Purdue players is Caleb Swanigan. No, it is not because of his recruitment or NBA decision (though we’re all following him because of that). For the past week or so he has been providing hilarious instagram profiles for all of his teammates.
First, We have Dakota Mathias:
The first player I want you guys to meet is Dakota Mathias a.k.a the Midwest cowboy. Now Dakota is a very interesting character and hasn't met a shot he does not like yet. Loves Steph curry more than himself. He also is bad at every card game in the book but is very competitive if I was #boilernation I'd be excited big year coming from the cowboy #deadeye stay tu
Pretty dry, but it gets better with Isaac Haas:
THAT POKEMON IS BIG COUNTRY! Now let me start by saying Isaac has more tall tells than anyone I know. His go to story is the he used to cliff dive off a 200 foot drop #cmonnowbigfella he is one of the nicest guys you'll meet. So nice of guy to elbow u four times in a row then make sure you're okay a real class act yes I foul u every day and yes I'm going to continue to foul u every day and no I don't need a different excuse to foul u other than ur 7'2. Y'all may be wondering why this picture because his life has been consumed by Pokemon go. Stay tuned to meet the next boilermaker #boilerup #boilernation
Next, is this Spike Albrecht’s head on Sandi Marcius’ body?
First newcomer to be introduced my man @spikedaddy by his Instagram name it should be self explanatory the narrative of this post will be. Spike goes to bed at 10:30 every night but will occasionally stay up to catch the latest updates in nascar ( i don't know if that's true but I'd put money on it) the best part of practice everyday is seeing spike attempt to get to a loose ball imagine ur uncle/dad trying to prove he still has it in the back yard is the best description of his game but in all seriousness spike has been working extremely hard since he has been here and I'm looking forward to him helping us this season #boilernation #boilerup and yes this is a real live picture of spike he wears #55 now
Coaches are not immune, either:
Come along with Bert and Ernie We’re going to take a little journey Coach B and Coach O great adventures. Every team has the unbreakable Bromance and no debate it's these two I had to double feature it because it was only right. I promise you guys no lie for a week straight these two wore the same outfit to practice. These two have the most pathetic one on one games coach O fits the Ernie description because he is the bigger talker and always starting the argument then coach B being coach b can't resist to argue. Coach b starts every film session with a line no one really understands "this guy right here is a real pipe hitter." ( coach O coming from the back) "MMmmmmhhhhmmmm". coach painter had to stop their one on one game because no one scored for about 25 minutes. Wanna see something funny get these two arguing about Lebron it'll go on for hours. We enjoy coach O's passion although he is annoying at times and coach b always wants to play like he still in his prime when he was a "pipe hitter" #boilerup #nooneissafe
Next we have the freshman point guard who DUNKED ON ISAAC HAAAS!!!
First things first. I don't want to see this man dunk on a teammate like this again. Isaac 7'2 this ain't even suppose to happen. @cboogie_3 u try this on me and there's no aw man we teammates because we can't even go out to eat anymore together. Carsen is always dancing and laughing with everyone has been a huge motivator for this team. But this, you didn't care about ur teammates feelings nothing showed me he her not to care about us dunking on his own kind like this. I'm excited for Carsen he hasn't ran a play right yet but he's getting there and will help us with speed and scoring but this deserves a suspension violation of team code of conduct. #boilerup in all fairness Isaac caught him first but still man @famouslos32 style.
Basil Smotherman’s is my favorite:
Movie coming soon "The Nutty Basil Smotherman " I know people are not understanding why this picture? Wonder no more, at the beginning of summer bas gained 30 pounds and lost it already. I've never seen someone lose the weight that fast other that buddy love n basil. Guess it was too much cooking with Basil. Also he is a man of many personalities he has his energized version, diva version, angry version, and sweet version. Idk how he balances all these roles but he does. Gained 8 pounds in a weekend lost it in two days I need that potion shermmmmmmmmaaaaaannn. "Noooo tities nooo tities" have to seen the movie to understand that line. Bas is going to be that spark plug we need this year and is a playmaker don't sleep on numeral cinco this year #boilerup #boilernation
Jacquil Taylor’s profile takes it back a few decades:
DYNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOMITE this comparison credit goes to Coach Bloom Jaquill Taylor the king of anger. If he misses a layup at the beginning of practice he may not let it go until next week. Doesn't talk much unless you piss him off which is 89.7% of the time. Quill wakes up mad because the sun came up actually no reason to be mad. His sworn enemy is Coach B who he hasn't beat in one on one game yet. Honestly tho quil is one of the hardest workers on the team has made huge strides since arriving at Purdue. He does have fun too don't get me wrong #boilerup #boilernation
His running buddy at forward, We’re hoping for big things out of Vincent Edwards:
This one goes out to @ve_xii had to remind you about one of your more infamous times Idk how V will get u with the same double jab everytime or pull back jumper you know it's coming too but still gets it. had to make a 2k version real quick because im better than Vince in 2k, Mortal kombat, fight night, you name it he can't see me in it. But he went ghost on me last year (got a girlfriend) rumor has it vince doesn't even live at Purdue because we don't see him anymore all jokes Vince was the reason we stayed in a lot of games true team leader ❤️❤️ #boilerup #boilernation
Finally, the most recent one thinks our starting point guard is Gollum:
This picture represents @pj_thompson11 in more than one way. One the obvious one he is about the same size as a hobbit and two if you look closely it's a basketball because pj rarely turns the ball over making it his "precious" . P is the nice guy of the team always trying to settle arguments never getting on anyone's bad side make light of everything. But I have to get something off my chest. Please shave your back I can't look at it anymore as ur locker neighbor it's killing me. To settle the myth no pj can not dunk never seen it so y'all can stop wondering about it #boilerup #boilernation
