Purdue PG Lewis Jackson is out indefinitely, potentially for the year, with a surgically repaired broken foot. He was fairly TO prone last year but that's to be expected from a true frosh starting 30 games in a major conference. At least it happened so early he can maybe redshirt. More minutes for Kelsey Barlow.
A really weird contrast last night in the OSU/UNC game. Ohio State is playing four wings and a non-scoring big man at all times while UNC has too many bigs and not nearly enough perimeter players who can make plays. If you could make trades in college basketball, both teams would be Final Four contenders if they made a William Buford for Ed Davis trade.
Indeed. Fuel for the "Little 10 sucks!" fire. At least all the losses were at neutral sites to teams that're for the most part better than their meaningless preseason rankings. Can't wait for the B10/ACC Challenge win.

Happened a few weeks ago but Northwestern's Kevin Coble's out for the year with foot surgery. Big hit to their NCAA hopes, hopefully Bill Carmody still gets some recognition for being a very good coach.
Glad to see we beat California, and a couple of days ago evan turner had his second triple double of the season. Like the Game said, we have some of the biggest guards in college basketball but we have no inside presence. I have a feeling this year will be like the year before we got Oden, Conely, and Cook. We had tons of potential but no size and we got extremely out rebounded by Georgetown and we lost in the tourney. We have some size Zisis Sarikopoulos 7' sophmore but he sucks.
