Sup fellas and ladies! Northwestern's bout to play Purdue! Let's all get together and talk about it!
There are some awesome omens in the house: first off, Northwestern is wearing black, a uniform choice that has NU 2-0. Second off, Gus Johnson is announcing. The last time these two things were combined, Northwestern knocked off No. 7 Michigan State. I feel like for all of the Gus Johnson Big Ten Networking, very rarely do we actually get to sit back and listen to him in a game thread - he's been to Welsh-Ryan a decent amount - so I look forward just to getting to listen.
A win today, in addition to being awesome, would put Northwestern in sole sixth place in the Big Ten at 6-6. That, well, um, that, um would be really really cool. So let's see Northwestern go out and do it. Other thing to think about: the John Shurna record-breaking tracker is at 75, as he has 1825 career points.
Go Cats, y'all!
