Purdue Spring Game

As part of my looking back at what I have missed on here I will take a quick look at the Purdue spring football game that was held last Saturday. The main reason that I wanted to be at the game was to see the Miami transfer Robert Marve in Black and Gold for the first time. Of course during the spring game he wears the protective green jersey of the quarterback. It is hard to gauge anything from the game. So many players were out due to injury that you really could not see what we are dealing with. Marve still is recovering from knee surgery, but he looked good. I really like the team we will have in the fall, and look forward to seeing them start the season in South Bend. The real highlight of the day of course was all the former players who came back to campus. Over 100 former Boilers showed up including many members of the most recent Rose Bowl team. One glaring omission was Drew Brees, although they did have a large bobble head of him for all to see. For some reason though they put it next to a dumpster with loose garbage bags everywhere. Nice backdrop for pictures. Ten years ago we played in Pasadena. Maybe we can repeat that feat this season.
