Purdue's Perspective One Month Out

During Big Ten media interviews yesterday, Purdue starting QB Robert Marve said all the right things about his school's season opener at Notre Dame Stadium: "It's all I think about, I dream about. I can't wait to play. I can't wait to represent Purdue and get after Notre Dame."

Purdue head coach Danny Hope said playing Notre Dame first is a "blessing in disguise," hinting at Purdue's respect for ND and emphasizing the game's motivational kick this summer.

WLFI-TV, a West Lafayette CBS affiliate, captured both interviews in this short clip:

Marve especially sounded confident, signaling that Purdue feels ready for us. Irish coaches and players haven't met the media yet, but Kelly and his offensive, defensive, and special teams coordinators will probably get some questions about Purdue at Friday's press conference in the Club Naimoli level of the JACC. Select players will be available to the media on Saturday, the first day of camp.

To my knowledge, ND players haven't talked directly about Purdue during rare summer interviews or through their social media venues. Despite ND focusing on itself for now, if Kyle Rudolph's recent tweet is any indication, the players are just as ready for the Boilers as they are for us: "Got my last workout in this morning. Eyes are on the prize. We've put in the work, now time to reap the rewards."

A month from today, we'll see who brings in the first harvest.
