Our favorite Boilermaker.

NCAA Basketball: Illinois at Penn State Matthew OHaren-USA TODAY Sports

During Iowa and Ohio State’s game on ESPN on Thursday night, Purdue great Robbie Hummel said Illinois — yes, the Fighting Illini — is his pick out of the Big Ten to win the national championship in 2020.

After the Illini’s win over No. 9 Penn State on Tuesday night, how could you not be on board?

Thanks, Robbie, for the support! We’ll add you to the bandwagon before everyone else gets on.
