Purdue Basketball Beat #50: 2017-2018 Purdue Season Preview
Michael, Aneesh, and old guy J Money preview Purdue’s season (I know, we’re 3 games in, relax, it’s entertaining #content we promise). We discuss Carsen Edwards’ expected breakout season (4:00) and his expected leadership with Vince Edwards, Purdue’s changed offense (12:00) and expectations for Haas, and Purdue’s spot in the Big Ten (19:00), Haas/Haarms interior defense changes (22:30), and Ryan Cline trying to take the next step (24:30).
We also take rapid fire questions from listeners (32:00) on Penn State, rant about Jim Delaney moving the Big Ten Tournament up a week (35:00), obligatory Matt Haarms section (40:00), predicting the next time Purdue will drop out of the top 25, Carsen 30 point games (44:30), and the baseline for a successful Purdue season (49:00).
All that, plus addition by subtraction, Purdue as the best shooting team in the country (turns out, Marquette still has that title), Haas as a tight end, the rest of the Big Ten, Nate Mason’s decade at Minnesota, #LittlePitinoToLouisville, #CreanBackToIU, and whether we could steal the ball from a one-handed Steph Curry in an elevator.
