I know this is probably mean spirited, but it's at the expense of Purdue and Illinois, so I'm okay with it.
Since the Sampson fiasco, I've had to listen to my Purdue and Illinois friends crow about how they're the future of the Big Ten and we're the past, how their programs are so much better than ours, and so on and so forth. Nevermind the fact that we have five national championship banners hanging in the real Assembly Hall and they have a combined 1.
Well, Illinois fans are starting to turn on Webber (and rightfully so; he's terrible) and Painter appears to have one foot our the door at Purdue. In the meantime, IU is killing it on the recruiting trail and is probably a year away from respectability and two years away from contending, which as far as I'm concerned puts us right on schedule.
So yeah. I love watching the smoke over Urbana and West Lafayette. Anyone else feel the same?
