20 year fan questions on moving forward with basketball

I was a freshman at Purdue in 2004. Wiley Hall shout out! That was Coach Keady's last season. We went 7-21, finishing 10th in the Big Ten. Just a little back story on my Purdue fan roots and timeline.

With about 10 minutes left to go in the FDU game, I started mentally preparing myself for a loss. I was still rooting and hoping for a Purdue win, but my gut and experiences as a Purdue fan said a loss was coming.

I will always be a Purdue fan. Good, bad, and ugly, I'll be here. So what can we do? Is there a way for the fan base to directly speak with Coach Painter? Should we all call into the Matt Painter show and incessantly tell Painter that we, the fan base, do not care about Big Ten Championships nearly as much as NCAA Tournament success? Do we overflow Mike Bobinkski's email with the same message, that we want NCAA Tournament success, above all else? Do we stop buying tickets and let Mackey sit partially empty until more March success? Or do we just complain on here about our March trouble? Do we trust in Painter to change things and deliver a Final 4 or National Championship? Is all the complaining on here just hollow words, or is it time for action?

I dont have the answer, it will be different for everyone. I have my opinion, but I want to hear yours.
