DALLAS -- Maybe Purdue star Katie Gearlds can keep doing her best imitation of Peyton Manning, the home-state quarterback who is finally recognized as a champion.After helping the Boilermakers get within one victory of the NCAA Final Four with a 78-65 regional semifinal victory over Georgia, Gearlds insisted that the ongoing success wasn't about settling any personal issues."I am going to quote what Peyton Manning said and say that I am not going to get into that subject right now," Gearlds said. "I don't have a monkey on my back. It is all about this team and we have worked so hard."Yes, Purdue's senior star sounds a lot like Manning did when he finally got to the Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts earlier this year.Manning got his title. And Gearlds still has a chance to get hers.
