Woops…that would be tidbits. Anyway, I wanted to write a quick post about comments from Coach Danny Hope after Sunday’s practice. A couple of things came to light:
- Caleb TerBush was named the starter, which was highly expected. However, Coach Hope announced that Sean Robinson would also get a chance to play on Saturday.
- Coach Hope commented that Ken Plue would likely not be ready to play and he’s unsure of when Plue would get a chance to play this year. That was also expected, but it’s more bad news to lose a veteran player that has started 20+ games for Purdue.
- Coach Hope also listed some freshmen that he thought would see the field this year: Akeem Hunt (RB), Brandon Cottom (RB/FB), Armstead Williams (LB), Raheem Mostert (WR, KR/PR), and Taylor Richards (CB/S). Hope stated that Hunt has been burning the defense down the field in practice. More RB depth is always a good thing!
