Minnesota at Purdue: GameThread & How to Watch

Today we say thank you.

NCAA Basketball: Minnesota at Purdue Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

Today we say thank you.

Thank you to Vince Edwards

Thank you to Dakota Mathias

Thank you to P.J. Thompson

Thank you to Isaac Haas.

And maybe even thank you to Jacquil Taylor.

Yes, let’s not forget Jacquil, who came in with these guys but has battled foot injuries for years and his status for next year is in question at best after this week. If this is Jacquil’s last game too he deserves a proper sendoff after four years in the program.

You guys will always be Boilermakers. That means you are family. Go get your 100th career win. If Wisconsin has done us a favor, go get a second Big Ten title.

Thank you.
