WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Severe weather forced the cancelation of the annual Black and Gold Spring Game, but the Big Ten Network was on hand and able to record some of the action of the closed indoor scrimmage inside Mollenkopf Athletic Center.
Unable to show anything live because of the short turnaround from Ross-Ade Stadium to Mollenkopf, the BTN announce crew of Tom Werme, Chris Martin and Rob Blackman were able to visit with players Ricardo Allen, Bruce Gaston, Rob Henry, Robert Marve, Kawann Short and Caleb TerBush, as well as head coach Danny Hope, offensive coordinator Gary Nord and defensive coordinator Tim Tibesar after the practice session ended. The BTN crew also caught up with a host of former Boilermaker players and coaches during the practice.
The spring recap show will air Monday at 7 p.m. ET on the BTN.
