With 3 hours to go before the Purdue game the scene outside Assembly Hall looks more like a tailgate.
Hotdogs, burgers and chicken costumes have kept Kelsey Weller and friends entertained for the past 27 hours. She braved the cold and camped outside with 4 friends last night just to be first in line.
“We got food, sleeping bags, blankets, lanterns. We’ve just been camping out and hanging out,” said Weller.
The crowd grew this morning and even more so after visits from Coach Tom Crean and Fred Glass who brought gifts of pizza and hot chocolate.
So what’s it going to be like when those doors open up?
IU student Jenna Soldano said, “I’m bowing people man, bowing people!”
The 12 and 15 Hoosiers will have their work cut out for them tonight against the number 8 Boilermakers, but this guy was no chicken in making his bold prediction.
IU student Blake Courtney said, “I mean I’ll tell you the score every day and it’s pretty much right on. So, 72 to 66 is going to be your final tonight with the Hoosiers getting the victory.”
