Purdue’s Marve ready to play Irish
Purdue coach Danny Hope said Marve immediately made Purdue a better program. Now, after sitting out a year as required by NCAA transfer rules, Marve will lead the Boilermakers for the first time on Saturday at Notre Dame.
At Miami, Marve threw more interceptions than touchdowns and didn’t play in the bowl game because he was academically ineligible. But his strong arm and mobility stand out.
Then there’s that swagger.
“He’s a commanding guy,” receiver Justin Siller said. “He’s a perfectionist. He demands the best from our offense all the time. He’s a great leader, a great quarterback and a great guy to have leading your offense and your team.”
Teammates say Marve’s preparation and work ethic match his talent.
“He really knows his assignments, and he makes sure the receivers are on top of their game,” running back Al-Terek McBurse said. “He’s going to get the ball to them.”
“He’s a dual threat quarterback, and I think it starts with his ability to keep plays alive,” Kelly said. “He’s shown that he’s got great athletic ability.”
Marve opened his Miami career at Florida in 2008, then led the Hurricanes to a win at Texas A&M the next week. He expects that experience to serve him well at Notre Dame Stadium.
“It gives me an extreme advantage,” he said. “Playing in the Swamp, you can’t even hear yourself talk. It’s extremely loud. I’m expecting that same type of atmosphere.”
Marve became Miami’s starting quarterback in the second game of the 2008 season. He made 11 consecutive starts and helped guide Miami to five straight wins from Oct. 11 to Nov. 13. He threw for 1,293 yards with nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions that season.
