    We are talking about a kid! Get over it! The one thing about MSU is tournament history. I think Malik would have been special player at Purdue but maybe he wants to be on a potentially special team. Move on....

    Lol I call BS on that being said by Malik. Especially being posted by someone not close to the situation.

    I mean really this is what things have regressed to? False claims on Twitter?

    A team consistently needs some top 50 talent on its roster to win big in the NCAA Tournament...and unfortunately Painter and his assistant coaches are not able to deliver. The AD seems to have accepted mediocrity by extending Painters contact. :(

    I agree that we seem to be talking past each other. What mattered to him most was getting to the NBA. He never, ever hid that. Do you think it was something different. Do you believe that his lifelong dream was to play for Tom Izzo? He knew that playing PF would best prepare him for the NBA. He was naive to believe that Izzo was going to let him play PF, but his not-so-naive guardian could see through it. Izzo is obviously a great salesman, but don't think for a minute that he wasn't telling Swanigan what he wanted to hear to get a commitment.

    They've won 30,27,26 games, won a big ten title, been to the B1G tournament championship game, and 2 Sweet Sixteens the past 3 years. Not to mention 3 All Americans. That's not mediocrity. It would be dumb not to re sign him

    How many regional finals or FF 4s?? That is where success is measured...not flaming out in the Sweet 16 consistently. I want Purdue to succeed as much as the next Boilermaker fan...but I just don't see big Tournament success happening under Coach Painter. Recruiting success translates to winning on the court in the NCAA Tournament.

    False. It's fine to be upset that Malik isn't coming to town but there's no need to just make things up. JJJ raves about MSU, as do his parents. Stick to the facts.

    I dislike your attitude regarding this comment. Of course a healthy Haas or a healthy Hummel would have impacted the game. Are you nuts?

    The psychological effect of losing Hummel just before the NCAA's was also obvious. To say otherwise is disingenuous at best.

    Perhaps it is you who should stop while you are ahead.

    That’s how “you” measure success.

    What’s Nix saying these days?

    Never said it wouldn't have impacted the game. The idiot I responded to said that Purdue WOULD have been in the Final 4 IF only Haas was healthy. You and I both know that is ridiculous as nobody was touching Villanova that tournament, Purdue included with or without a healthy Haas. Is it probably a closer game if Haas plays, sure, but it's not even a given that Purdue beats TT with a healthy Haas. These hypothetical, what-if F4's as an excuse for keeping Painter are nauseating.

    Now how do you know that? Seems as you allow yourself to make claims but when others do it, they are idiots. Stop being a f****** arrogant prick.

    There was a "Bay Area Hoosier" in the IU chat the last couple of weeks... I'm sure it was just a coincidence...

    Actually. You were being an arrogant prick so he rightfully called you out for it. The smug retort just validated him calling you out.

    Sounds like Whizzo is doing some strong negative recruiting. Play in March? As good chance at Purdue as at MSU. In fact MSU had flamed out recently.

    San Fran is a big tech area and have encountered quite few Hoosier fans in the 3 years I’ve been out here. Doesn’t surprise me.

    WE very well might have beaten them. They did not match up ell against our team with Haas in the line up. Stop being a prick about this.

    I have also heard some back door discussions that indicate JJJ regretted his decision to go to MSU. It was not the experience he had hoped for, and the chemistry of the team was not as good as it should have been. Some of the players did not like other players, and some felt certain players were ball hogs. I think there is some significant smoke here to indicate a fire. I don't think the smoke has cleared for this year either.

    My bet is that if Malik goes to MSU he may very well regret that decision.

    I’m being the least prick possible? Again I’m not the one that said Purdue WOULD have been in the F4 IF ONLY Haas was healthy. Sure Purdue could have won and would have at least fared better, but that isn’t what he said. And that’s why I called him out. To assume Purdue was a lock to get the Final 4 on the side of the bracket that included Villanova is ridiculous.

    And didn’t match up with our team well? They beat us. In Mackey. Before Brunson was a star. While Spellmam was out because he was ruled ineligible. Before anyone knew who DiVencenzo was. You know, 4 guys who just got drafted in the first 33 picks.

    You’re above name calling.

    Second I think the point is Nova was a buzzsaw last year in the tourney. Purdue with or without Haas, probably would have lost. Is it possible we would have given them a run for their money? Sure but based on their run, it would have been unlikely.

    Poster and source are likely the same person. And may or may not have lived in Izzo’s basement at one time.

    You know, it has been years since I've enjoyed a rum & coke. Tonight, while waiting for the little monsters to ring my doorbell, I have had a couple. They taste really good. I don't always drink $30 bottles of wine. Every once in a while I fall off the wagon and go crude.

    Don Q rum (the cheap stuff) with diet Pepsi. Yes, I know it sounds uncouth, but damn, it tastes great!

    Just curious, why would Purdue be in his top 3 and Kansas out if that were the case? Purdue just went to two sweet 16s. Hall may pick MSU, but that’s a turd of a post.

    Look, only one team can get him. Painter has done everything right and has done an impressive job over the last 4 years at developing players and getting players drafted. If Hall comes to Purdue, especially with Zeke, I guarantee a final four (so long as freak injuries stay away). This squad has that much potential.

    The point is BAB is admitting we would’ve been an Elite 8 team last year with Haas but would’ve lost to the best team in the country and not made the final four. I’m onboard. One would then also assume if only we got the draw Michigan did with a healthy Haas, we would’ve made the final four. So how does that make Painter mediocre?

    I don’t think he is mediocre. Overall he is above average coach. Great at Xs and Os and average recruiter.

    Painter is still young - comparatively speaking for a D1 coach. He will figure it out and in time make and E8, F4 and land top 50 kids.

    He said he loves Izzo & the staff, matter of fact his profile pic is with Izzo, but yes Nix has battled some depression over the years, and hope he gets the help he's seeking.

    Mathboy doesn't need to be put in check for his name calling.
    Probably would have lost? Perhaps...…….or then again maybe not. We will never know. And that is a true statement.

    I believe his sister's tweet posted above is probably the most telling and revealing. She's already talking about people being disappointed and they should respect her brother's decision as being the best one for him - not for the school. it's as if she knows his decision is going to make a lot of people sad.

    I don't follow twitter. So I will ask, What school has provided hall the most tweets and twitter followings? Purdue ? or MSU?
