For those not following today's Big Ten basketball media day closely, the Boilermakers were a consensus pick -- for second place. I don't know about you, but I really don't care about this. In fact, if it takes any kind of a target off their backs for a little while, so be it.
Another miscellaneous tidbit, as a regular reader pointed out in the comments of another post, Smilin' Terry Hutchens did not pick JJ or Robbie for his preseason all-Big Ten team.... and sadly, that bumbling clown gets a vote. Well, the votes were tabulated and thankfully other people do realize how good Sir Hummel is and he made first team.
