While there are still some questions to be answered as the season gets underway, Purdue does enter 2019 on better footing than in many of the past years. We know that Elijah Sindelar will be the day 1 starter for the third straight season. We know Rondale Moore is really good. Markus Bailey and Lorenzo Neal are expected to lead the defense. The biggest questions are on the lines, and if they are answered adequately we’re in for quite a year.
