One of my favorite features to run is our annual countdown to Purdue football, where we count down the days to kickoff by going through the roster numerically. It gives us the staff to feature every player on the roster, from Heisman candidate Rondale Moore down to the third string walk-on long snapper. Yes, there will be gaps here, as most of the incoming freshmen do not have numbers assigned to them until late summer when they arrive on campus, but this gives every player their day in the sun.
So enjoy this series. We will be running it from Day 100 (May 23rd), right up to the day before the season kicks off in Reno against Nevada. Obviously, some player will have a lot to write about and others will be quite mysterious. We hope that you will enjoy learning a little something about each one along the way.
