Today we are pilgrims in an unholy land.
Purdue takes its current road struggles into an absolute snake pit of favorable home calls, noise, and rabid anger against a team getting a little desperate to stay live for the NCAA Tournament. A win today does not put Purdue into March, but it would be a huge victory for its road confidence and a dagger to the hopes of its hated rival.
