I just wanted to come over and congratulate you guys on an amazing contest last night and a hard-earned victory. As a Purdue fan, we never get used to these rip-your-heart-out losses, especially when a player like Robbie Hummel leaves us with a "If he never gets hurt, we probably win a National title" feeling.
You guys definitely earned this one, and your fans were respectful throughout and your team is actually a pretty fun one to watch. Honestly, I think I have a new favorite team to watch in the final 16. If this pushes you guys going forward it should be an interesting tournament to watch.
Good luck the rest of the way. i think you earned the respect of more than this Purdue fan, and feel free to stop by Hammer & Rails any time. You'll find us more than welcoming to talk about some good basketball.
