Referees for Michigan at Purdue: Bill Ek, Rob Riley and Courtney Green.
Green and Ek also were in the crew that did the first meeting between these two teams, FWIW.
Boot free and sweatpants free…
That means Isaiah will probably start.
Livers looks like the evolved form of Nunez in that photo.
Purdue is scorching at home, but imagine the wonders this does for the team’s confidence if they can win B2B road games against tournament quality teams.
That Rutgers win took a lot of angst off the result of this one. It will be interesting to see how Purdue handles the underlying pressure of pretty much needing to win out plus perhaps one in the BTT to make the dance.
Inducting Robbie Hummel into Purdue HOF, and he’s calling the game. Yikes
Ugh gross. Nothing against Hummel but can’t really expect any partiality in that situation.
Yeah, agreed on that. Came into the week thinking that if we grabbed 1/2 we’d be in good shape. My hope now is that we the guys can get on a roll…every game here on out is winnable
Hummel is my favorite of the analysts that do Big Ten games.
Much rather have Hummel than Dakich…
Yeah Hummel is one of my favorites. Probably will be a little weird given the circumstance though - either he will be a homer or go out of his way to try not to be a homer and seem impartial, which may affect the commentary.
