With 6 days left in the Countdown, we now stand less than one week from the start of the 2012 Purdue football season. As that day draws so tantalizingly close, it is important to talk about what great things our football team has the potential to accomplish this fall--another bowl bid, the Big Ten Championship Game, etc. These are things that can possibly be attained by this Boilermaker team. Some goals are certainly going to be more attainable than others, but anything is possible. And just as Coach Hope said to me at the Big Ten Media Days last month, I think we have fielded one of the best squads West Lafayette has seen in the last few years. Starting next weekend, its true greatness will be put to the test.
Similarly, today's featured player in the Kickoff Countdown has heightened expectations this year. Assuming a new role that fits his skill set, #6 Gary Bush is slated to excel for the Boilermakers in 2012 and contribute to what should hopefully be great amounts of success.
