  Boilermakers part II
They say familiarity breads contempt and if that were the case these two teams would hate each other. As IW mentioned in the last post, Illinois and Purdue are more familiar with each other than most teams. Mark Tupper continues with that theme in his preview of the game here in today's Decatur Herald & Review.

In that post, Illini Wonk also mentioned that Gene Keady's final season at Purdue is not going well. Tupper has more on that here as does Lindsey Willhite here. Keady says that he is fed up with losing attitude. The Illini had better be careful that they're not the ones around when Purdue channels all of that frustration into a winning performance.

Bonus knowledge - how to make a boilermaker: Drop one shot of Canadian whisky into a 12 oz glass of cold beer. Drink quickly. For the nutritional information, go here.

UPDATE: Greg Doyel includes a preview of the game in his Dribbles.
