“ROSEMONT, ILL. — When Robbie Hummel picked up his college diploma in May, did it mark the end of a six-year run of Purdue basketball excellence?
During that period — which began with Carl Landry and David Teague leading the Boilermakers to a 22-12 record in 2006-2007, included four seasons in which JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore were All-Big Ten players and was capped by a Hummel-led 22-13 season a year ago — Matt Painter’s program never suffered a hiccup, going 73-33 in league play.”
Wow, dude. Did you schedule this two years ago?

While I love to think that E’Twaun, Jajaun and Keaton are enough to keep the Boilers as one of the most feared teams in the country, the loss of Hummel takes away one of our most consistent players and our best pure shooter.
I hope the team can step up without him, but right now I’m worried that history may be repeating itself. See 2008-2009 season and Robbie’s back injury…
