A List of 32 Sh***y Things At Purdue That Would Still Be Better Than Being A Kansas Fan

author-pic at Purdue University  

As if Purdue wasn’t stressful enough academically, it’s starting to stress everyone out athletically as well – our basketball team’s narrow victory over Iowa State last week brought us one step closer to the championship game in this year’s March Madness Tournament. Tomorrow, we play Kansas,  one of the most dynamic teams left in the running. We’re confident in our Boilermakers, but regardless of whether or not they bring home the W, we’ll still be proud to wear Black and Gold – and it’ll still suck to be Kansas. Below is a list of things that still less shitty than being a Kansas fan.
