Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon Wisely Invites Only One Lineman From Purdue

The Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon will be held in Chicago on August 4 and will feature Robert Marve, Keith Smith and Ryan Kerrigan, along with Coach Hope. (I never get tired of this picture.)

Whenever you're hosting a lunch and inviting football players, it's a good idea to invite quarterbacks and receivers, since they usually don't eat as much as linemen.

It's unclear who from IU will be allowed to attend as officials from the Big Ten are worried about sandwiches at the luncheon being fumbled at a critical juncture and Coach Lynch throwing his chewing gum across the table in disgust.
