Well, it was both really pretty and really ugly in wins this week against Michigan and at Rutgers, but Purdue took my advice and kept winning. Purdue now is 7-2 in Q1 games (tied for best in the nation with #1 UConn) and 12-2 in Q1 / Q2 games (that is best in the nation). Only 3 games this season have been against Q4 teams. It’s hard to come up with new ways to say that Purdue has the best resume in the nation and it’s not particularly close. But there are still plenty of quality games to be played. Playing Wisconsin twice, Illinois on the road, and Michigan State (which I actually don’t think are that good) gives Purdue that much more resume firepower if they can win. Morale of the story for Purdue: just keep winning.
