Surprise, surprise: Justin Siller started at quarterback for Purdue today against Michigan.
Siller hasn't played quarterback in a game since 2008, when he started three games and led Purdue to a win against, yep, Michigan. After being suspended for the 2009-10 academic year, Siller returned to the team but was moved from quarterback to wide receiver.
The move came largely because Purdue had enough depth at quarterback. But as we all know, the depth is no more.
Coach Danny Hope said Tuesday that Siller was still struggling to run at full speed because of a foot injury that has sidelined him for several games. Sean Robinson entered the week as the projected starter, but Siller must have gotten healthy in a hurry to make the start.
Very interesting development at Ross-Ade Stadium.
