Boilers End Season In Fitting Fashion
Purdue played with the lead for most of the game today in the worst place in the world...The defense valiantly held a Heisman candidate in check for much of the day...But at the end of it all, Coleman got 2,000 yards, IU earned its first victory in the conference and Purdue continued to circle the drain offensively, before getting flushed in the closing seconds. Purdue has now finished 12th (last) and 14th (last) in successive seasons while losing the bucket in both years. Back-to-back bucket losses hasn't happened in about 20 years...and finishing last in the conference in two straight seasons is historical, by any measure.
Morgan Burke's promise to not get into an arm's race with the rest of the conference has dropped us here.
Spring ball is coming in a few months. Can't wait.
