There was breaking news on Friday, with Isaac Haas being ruled out the rest of the tournament.
The around 1:30 AM Saturday morning, our luck began to look up.
PURDUE HAS BLESSINGS FROM " THE BASEDGOD " - Lil B— Lil B THE BASEDGOD (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) March 17, 2018
I am not sure what the hell this means, but by the responses on Twitter, this is a really good thing.
It appears as if the Based God either grants good will on teams or puts a curse on them.
With this blessing, there were then murmurs later in the day that Isaac Haas may play - as he practiced with the team with a JJ Watt type of brace. It is still unclear if he will get any playing time, but the Based God provided us with a moment of excitement.
Later on, Vincent Edwards gave a shout out to the Based God, which was recognized by our fearless leader, Lil B.

With the Based God on our side, anything is possible.
Step two starts in a few hours against in state opponent the Butler Bulldogs. Enjoy some more Based God Tweets:

I asked @LILBTHEBASEDGOD for a blessing for Purdue. He did not let me down and fulfilled it. And now Isaac Haas may get cleared to play. This is stuff that writes books. Thanks Based God— 2-Time Manager of the Year (@EddisonKirkland) March 17, 2018
