5.Purdue: The Boilermakers needed a signature victory to feel more secure about their at-large hopes. So they played with passion during a 75-61 win at Michigan this weekend. Matt Painter continues to find a way with this team. Despite limited size, limited depth and off-court issues, the Boilermakers are an NCAA tourney team.
6.Indiana: The Hoosiers were never going to live up to the hype that commenced after December victories over Kentucky and Ohio State. But you have to step back and take a look at what’s happened in Bloomington this season. A team that won three Big Ten games last season is comfortably in the field of 68 and has amassed 22 victories. The Hoosiers crushed Minnesota on Sunday (69-50 in Minneapolis), avenging an earlier loss to the Gophers.
Now it's obvious that Medcalf is a moron, just trying to get page hits, or is only focusing on the quality of the last couple wins because any sane person knows that IU is the better team, has a better body of work throughout the reg season, and will almost assuredly be a higher seed in the NCAA Tournament. Like most all rankings this one is completely meaningless but it did a good job of stoking the fire of my hatred for Purdue. Since it's hate week click the link and let your anger fill you up. Then feel free to list all the reasons why Medcalf isn't fit to live on this planet anymore.
