WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The 2013 college football season did not get off to the kind of start the Purdue Boilermakers were expecting. A 42-7 loss against Cincinnati comes with the inevitable questioning of the quarterback.
Not surprisingly, Purdue senior quarterback Rob Henry wasn't happy with that performance, and particularly with his own. He took to Twitter to apologize to Boiler supporters after Saturday's game.
"I apologize to all my family, teammates, friends and fans. My performance today was unacceptable. Never played that bad in my life," said Rob Henry.
Henry finished the day 18-of-35 for 161 yards (4.6 yards per-attempt), two interceptions without a touchdown, and a fumble.
Tuesday afternoon head coach Darrell Hazell talked about what went wrong for Henry and how it will be corrected.
"The biggest thing is our communication from Rob to the rest of the rest of the guys in the huddle is probably our number one thing. It didn't allow us to get lined up as fast as we can and then to execute," said Hazell.
Kevin Pamphile protects Henry's blind side on every play and he believes Henry will get things turned around and be the captain and leader this team needs him to be.
"There was a lot of pressure towards Rob, a lot of guys were a little frustrated but we still have faith in Rob. He's our captain, he's our quarterback, he's our leader so a lot of guys still have faith in him that he'll show up Saturday prepared to beat Indiana State," said Pamphile.
The Boilermakers and Sycamores meet for the fourth time in series history with Purdue leading the series, 3-0.
