Terbush or Marve

Did you guys see this quote in the article with Tim Newton (Purdue's play-by-play voice)? I've been reading a lot of people are upset about Marve not starting and found this interesting:

IndySportsLegends.com: Quarterback Robert Marve played well in the opener, but Hope named Caleb TerBush the starter against Notre Dame. Did that surprise you?

Newton: “I was able to get in and watch fall camp just about everyday and in watching practice everyday there was no question that Caleb TerBush was the best quarterback they had in fall camp.

“I would also agree with Danny’s assertion that he was the best quarterback by a pretty wide margin."

As somebody who wanted to see Marve start, this actually makes me feel a lot better about the QB situation for Saturday. Newton should have more in-depth football knowledge than the vast majority of us fans, so I'm going to give the coaches the benefit of the doubt. Sure it would've been favorable to get Terbush some live game reps going into ND, but I guess props go to the coaches for amping up the discipline.

The whole article is: http://www.indysportslegends.com/2012/09/05/purdue-play-by-play-voice-tim-newton-talks-notre-dame/
