It's Purdue week here at BT Powerhouse and with that we have interviewed Hammer and Rails' very own Travis Miller on everything from the Matt Painter scare to Patrick Bade leaving, as well as this past season. We also got his predictions for the upcoming year.
The 1-3 finish was highly disappointing mostly because we looked nothing like the team we had been for two straight months. Even in beating St. Peter’s we didn’t look that great. Seeing how bad UConn and Butler both played in the title game just makes me angry because I know we could have beaten either team. It just doesn’t seem right that JJ and Smooge never got past a Sweet 16, and that injuries to Rob derailed their last two years.
Outside of Zeller I am not scared at all. Yogi Ferrell is a similar player to Ronnie Johnson (Terone Johnson’s brother). Hanner Perea is gifted athletically, but lacks polish. What we have coming in is rising, while a lot of their ratings are falling.
