1 minute look at practice

-Indiana heat finally arrived in Weat Lafayette- 90-plus temps and high humidity...it'll only get worse this week though. So Hope is is running practice in 10-minute on, 1-minute off fashion while continuing to demand a fast pace. The team was in shoulder pads for the first time too.

-Worst news out of camp so far- Carlos has a stress factor in his foot, so won't be taking reps for the next few weeks.

As a result, Pegram, the Frosh from Texas got some snaps with the ones. He's pretty impressive on tape, I just don't know how well a true Freshman can do...but how many other options does Hope really have at this point? Maybe Purdue can pull an Iowa as a third or fourth-stringer becomes a force in the BT due to injuries?

Hope had liked Dierking's versatility and potential since last season...that talk will most-assuredly become significant snaps as the depth chart gets thinner.

Will we be seeing a preseason Handsome Hour and after hours coming in the following weeks.

Agreed. I like Dierking's vision and ability to catch the football. He would be an unreal running back, if he had greater size. He's extremely smart and well liked on the team. You can't questions his heart or work ethic, but this kid just isn't big enough.

Jake, a new HH is coming soon- definitely prior to kickoff weekend.

I'm with you, PWS...I hope he can contribute this season...and hope he never throws another pass again!!
