There's a great interview with Austin Appleby at GoldandBlack.com. Not only is he positive about his future with Purdue, but his attitude is simply unbelievable considering the circumstances of the team and the fact that he really hasn't been given a chance to play on this offensively-challenged squad.
From Gold & Black: "I love this school. I love Purdue," he said. "(The reason) I chose this school No. 1 was if I'm not playing football, where do I want to go to school? That's why I chose Purdue University. I love everything about this place. Football-wise, I'm totally invested in being 1-0 this week and beating Indiana. I'm not worried about anything else besides beating Indiana and doing everything I can to make sure I'm ready and my teammates are ready to get this win. That's how I've been and that's how I'm going to be. Nothing changes. I'm all about Purdue University. This is where I want to be. This is what I love.
He also talks about how his supportive family upbringing has helped him understand that being ready when called upon is the only way to look at life. With major college athletics being such a "me first" culture right now, Appleby's words are even more impressive. Hopefully that attitude will permeate the culture of this team going forward.
