A Tribute to Robbie Hummel made by The Paint Crew.

This video relives the career of one of the most beloved Boilermakers in history: Robbie Hummel. From his blocked shot against Wisconsin to give the “Baby Boilers” their first signature win, to the 5-second call he drew against West Virginia on New Year’s Day in his junior season (the single loudest play I have witnessed in Mackey Arena), to his injuries, and his comeback this season. This video does a much better job of portraying Hummel’s legacy as a Boilermaker than I can put into words.

If you don’t get at the absolute very least misty eyed during this video, you have no soul.

Boiler Up!

Barlow Dismissed, Byrd Suspended

Terrible news out of West Lafayette this morning. DJ Byrd has been suspended for Sunday’s game against Michigan State and Kelsey Barlow has been dismissed from the team.

Members of the team, including Robbie Hummel and Lewis Jackson, were out celebrating Barlow’s 21st birthday. What really happened is pure speculation at this point, but we do know DJ was arrested for Public Intoxication.

This is the third straight season for Purdue where some unforeseen misfortune strikes the team late in the season. In 09-10, Robbie went down with his ACL injury when Purdue was playing better than any team in the country. In 10-11 Barlow was suspended for the NCAA Tournament. And now this.

We here at Boilermakers always loved Barlow on the court. He was clearly the most athletic player and had the best pro potential of any player on the team, but he just never seemed to really put it all together. His issues off the court though were frustrating, and ultimately Painter had to dismiss him, as this was Barlow’s third strike.

Here are some of the best moments, in picture, of Barlow’s career as a Boilermaker.
