How Far Do You Have Purdue In Your Bracket?

Now that everybody’s brackets are finalized, we have one big question.  How far do you have Purdue in your bracket?  There’s a reason why we are asking.

Don’t forget they were the B1G Ten regular season co-champs, but nobody seems to have a good handle on them.  For all their history of hardwood success, the last time Purdue saw a Final Four…well, it’s been a while.

  • You could buy a brand new Ford Mustang for $6,000
  • A new house to park it in front of would cost you $60,000
  • The technology to create compact discs (CDs) had just been invented
  • Jimmy Carter was the U.S. President
  • That stuff on Gene Keady’s head was mostly still hair

The year was 1980, and Purdue’s star player was a thankfully-forgotten seven-foot slag-heap named Joe Barry Carroll.  His lethargic approach to his NBA career led to his being nicknamed “Joe Barely Cares.”  But that was then and this is now.

As noted in our Pre-Tournament Sweet Sixteen, Purdue has been the darlings of the metric-heads since the start of the B1G Ten season.  But for all that number-crunching Poindexter-ery, the  Boilers have this maddening tendency to go in the toilet at the wrong time (their first-round B1G Ten tournament loss to Minnesota being the most recent example).  That’s why there are such disparate opinions on what this team will do in this tournament.  I’ve seen some with the Boilers breaking their forty-year absence from the Final Four; others have Purdue not surviving the first weekend.

That much variance in opinion on one team is rare, but the fact that Dubsism World Headquarters is smack-dab in the middle of Boiler Nation only amplifies both the numbers and the variances of the opinions.  Boiler fans are an odd combination of fatalism and hope; the sort of people who will hang themselves while believing the rope will break, which is why we need as many opinions on this as we can get.

    I don’t know of anyone yet who had either Auburn or Texas Tech in theirs, that’s for sure.
