Purdue Selects Big Ten Media Day Participants

The big news is Purdue is sending two QBs to Chicago.

We’re really stretching for football-like substance and news here, but this afternoon Purdue announced its three participants at Big Ten Football Media Days:

It’s pretty standard practice to have the best defensive player, a quarterback, and one more player go to represent a school. Purdue is sending both quarterbacks, as David Blough and Elijah Sindelar are expected to battle once again for the starting job. Markus Bailey is not a surprise, as he is one of the best linebackers in the Big Ten.

Blough represented Purdue last season and even gave the student athlete speech at the luncheon to much fanfare. We don’t know who is starting, but if Sindelar gets the nod in the season opener against Northwestern it finally ends the streak of consecutive season opening games with a different quarterback:

2008: Curtis Painter

2009: Joey Elliott

2010: Robert Marve

2011: Caleb TerBush

2012: Robert Marve

2013: Rob Henry

2014: Danny Etling

2015: Austin Appleby

2016: David Blough

2017: Elijah Sindelar
