Before Nojel Eastern announced his transfer to Michigan, Purdue’s Matt Painter went on The Dan Dakich show and gave these quotes about the former Boilermaker:
Matt Painter on @dandakich interview says Nojel Eastern is an outlier in PU program: “The other guys got better, but the other guys also stayed and fought through adversity. Now you walk out the door after you put your name in the draft twice when you averaged 4 points…” sheesh

"These guys are like "Hey, I wanna be a pro." Great, way to go, so you're gonna knock somebody out of the Pacers' rotation? Who? What's their name? They don't get the picture of how good you gotta be and how much work you have to put in."
-Coach Matt Painter
