Purdue looks to breaks its hex in Bankers Life.

NCAA Basketball: Crossroads Classic-Notre Dame at Purdue Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

I wish I could welcome you from a sold out Bankers Life Field house as usual, but there is a damn pandemic going on and barely anyone can enter the arena. In checking all my credentials from past years this is the first time I have not been at a Crossroads Classic since the first one in December 2011. I did apply this week, but they are limiting even the amount of media allowed in.

Don’t worry though. Casey will be at Friday’s game at Mackey and Jace should be at a few others.

At least we will get this on TV.
