After being cleared to play after his ACL tear last season, Robbie Hummel went down again in practice tearing the same ACL and ending this coming season prematurely.

Last season, Robbie Hummel ended his season by tearing his acl, and purdue was never the same. They made the Sweet 16, where they fell to Duke. This season the Boilermakers were looking at a top 5 team, and now they will struggle to stay in the top 10. Losing Hummel is devastating, but the only salvation you can find for Purdue fans is that he will be eligible next season, since he never redshirted.

 The season is only a month away, and losing another season in Hummel's collegiate career will not only hurt Purdue, but his decision on turning pro after this season.
