Hope on QB decision

Purdue coach Danny Hope talked about why he named Robert Marve the starter for Saturday's game against Penn State.

"It was based on his performance in the ballgame (against Minnesota), and the fact that we believe now he can play with his leg like it is. A month ago we were told that he probably wouldn't play football again. So even though he was saying all the right things and we were hoping that he could, the medical experts were telling us it was very doubtful. It could happen, but most of the time it doesn't.

"So for us to put all of our eggs in that basket four weeks ago when our sports medicine expert wasn't sure whether or not he was going to be able to start with our football team, it set Robert back a little bit," Hope said.

"So he's practiced some. He was doing great until he got hurt. With the opportunity that's he had. I thought his game was starting to come on. I felt like it was the opening game of the season, and throughout times in the course of the season, he was starting to get it together, and began to play his best football ever."
