Robbie Hummel, Toughtest This is the news of the college basketball fans could digest this morning. Fresh from the Midnight Madness Festivitas throughout the country, the current season in some regard and felt it was time to size up the competition. But today FoxSports.com ‘s Jeff Goodman reported that studies Robbie Hummel Purdue broke the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during practice this morning …. yes, the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee itself, which began in Februray 24. Is the platform for the entire 2010-2011 season.
Goodman piece went on to say just how awful this is for a disinterested child a lot of talent who do not have the opportunity to compete ”
Since I broke into this business, I have always tried to be objective. He grew up in Boston, was never a towel-waver of any of the local teams. I took lots of photos at my alma mater, Arizona, in recent years.
But this does not require objectivity.
The calls and texts arrived at a furious pace after the news around noon on Saturday – their rival Big Ten coach and head and assistant coaches around the country.
Pick your adjective.
Unfair. Devastating. Horrible.
It is even difficult to Google “Robbie Hummel” at the moment and I feel horrible, like the senior boilermaker was officially approved to return to action just a week ago. Amazing how a news source can turn sour so quickly.
Hummel is likely to redshirt and get a fifth year of eligibility for 2011-2012. But this was the year for the club Matt Painter. The trio of Hummel, JaJuan Johnson and Moore E’Taun should develop their games together and fight for a national title when they became seniors. They have had two years to get together, but both have been derailed by injuries.
Do not try to convince me of the Boilermakers will be fine. Without Hummel, who is a sweet 16 in the better team. The whole thing is really disappointing.
