Thursday Gumbo

Practice, not a game...
Purdue's football team continued to quietly toil and prepare for next season...not too much is trickling out via GBI that's of note, but one thing that Coach Hope said that is noteworthy, was Royce Adams move to outside receiver. This is awfully good news as the receiving corp needs guys in a position to succeed. Plus, this is Adams' last shot as he'll be a Senior in the fall.

New Fields to be ready in the fall
If you've been by Macky/Mollenkopf recently, you've seen the massive amount of earth that's being moved around as the Sports Complex renovation gets underway. The first phase of the project that will be completed will be the fraternal-twin football fields where the Grand Prix track once was. One will be synthetic turf, the other will be Bermuda (cold strain) like the surface of Ross Ade. And, both will be fully-functional by the time fall practices start in August.

Tour de Forcier
Former 4-star, 2007 recruit, Chris Forcier is transferring out of UCLA. Forcier, who is brother of incoming-Frosh, Tate (at UM), and Stanford QB, Jason, was recently timed at 4.43 for his 40 yard dash...And as he didn't look to break the two-deeps, Coach Newweasel wanted to move him into a position where his speed could be used. Chris wanted only to be a QB...and is now on his way out the door in SoCal. The oldest of the three, Jason also transferred from UM early in his career.

Rumors are swirling as to where he might end up...and Purdue is in the mix as he will visit Purdue in the coming weeks. I don't know if he's the best fit for a pass-first spread offense, but maybe Hope knows something we don't. Transfers can be a great thing or a huge pain in the I don't know if I have an opinion on this kid other than speed kills...but so do ginormous egos.

Cut it out
Is anybody else sick of the Jay Cutler crap? Has a lousy quarterback ever gotten so much ink as this guy? He might be talented, but he's a lil' b*tch and I'm sick of seeing him in print and on TV...hopefully, he'll sign with Washington when that trade finally becomes public.
