03/05/2013 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: Of course, everyone asked about Marve's knee. He tore the ACL in his left knee for the third time in September at Notre Dame. He returned to the lineup less than a month later and took over the starting job during the final four games, leading the Boilermakers to a second straight bowl game.

"I feel good, feel normal," Marve said about his knee. "I don't have any pain, I don't swell, I don't have any kind of indication of ???Oh, slow down' or nothing like that. You saw the drills - you can't tell me different from anybody else. I'm going to keep going." - Mike Carmin, The Muncie Star Press

03/05/2013 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: Robert Marve???s college football odyssey could still net an opportunity in the NFL. Marve (6-foot-1 1/8, 211 pounds), one of the most-sought-after players coming out of high school, originally committed to Alabama but attended Miami (Fla.) instead. Later, Marve transferred from Miami to Purdue, where an injury-ravaged college career netted him a sixth year of eligibility in 2012. During the March 1 workout in West Lafayette, Ind., Marve displayed a great arm during position drills, a performance that could earn the quarterback a longer look from NFL teams as a potential rookie free-agent pickup.

Marve - who was not at the NFL Scouting Combine - ran the 40-yard dash in 4.78 and 4.84 seconds, had a 9-foot-5 broad jump and 27 1/2-inch vertical jump, ran the short shuttle in 4.32 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.15 seconds. He also performed 22 strength lifts of 225 pounds (which would have been the best among QBs at the combine). - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

03/05/2013 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: Marve, a former top recruit out of the state of Florida, felt he had a lot to prove Friday. He was only a part-time starter in his final season at Purdue and because of injury has little game film, comparatively, to others. "I thought I did well, the ball came out," he said. "It's frustrating sometimes because you train, train, train, but then you throw to different receivers to the timing of it (is off). But it was a good day overall. I thought the ball whistled out of my hand pretty well and showed them my knee was OK, so that's always a plus. And there was a lot of questions. "Obviously I didn't have the career over a long period of time that I wanted to have," he said. "But I thought I played very strong this year when I played. I played well early and thought I played very strong through the end of the year. I went out on my own terms and went out happy. And I went out considerably healthy." - Kyle Charters/Stacy Clardie, GoldandBlack.com

03/05/2013 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: Marve, who made the trip back to West Lafayette after training in Florida, is hoping to get an opportunity in the NFL, whether that be via draft or free agency. But without going to the Combine, Marve's had only the Pro Day and an all-star game to show scouts what he has.

"I want to show them I'm smooth when I throw, that I can adapt when I throw and obviously I want to show what I look like when I throw on the run," he said. "That was one of my strongest suits coming into college. That's something that I've built up and I wanted to show them I could be in the pocket also. I felt I did a good job, got a couple more workouts to do. Every time you go through a workout, learn something and get better at it. I improved today and want to keep improving."

Marve regional combine scheduled for March 9 in Tampa and will work out for a couple other teams. He's just hoping for a chance to continue his playing career. "I'm going to work as hard as can and let God take care of the rest," he said. "Everyone always wants to know 'What do you think? What's going on?' Anything that happens is the right answer for me. We all have different roads in life and I'm happy with anything that happens." - Kyle Charters/Stacy Clardie, GoldandBlack.com

03/05/2013 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: The 13 former Boilermakers who participated in Friday's NFL Workout Day inside the Mollenkopf Center all had something to prove. Robert Marve wanted scouts to see he can perform at a high level, despite last season's ACL injury, which hasn't been surgically repaired. Josh Johnson wanted to demonstrate his 40 time at the NFL Scouting Combine didn't truly showcase his speed and quickness. This was Akeem Shavers' first - and maybe only - opportunity to show he's recovered from a knee strain suffered in the Jan. 1 bowl game against Oklahoma State. Marve also wanted to prove his arm strength hasn't diminished.

"I can throw - that's what a quarterback does," he said. "I got meathead for a second and I was talking about the bench press and how I was going to get some of the bigger guys in it. Just throw the ball. I wanted to show them I'm smooth when I throw, show them I can adapt when I throw, and obviously, I want to show what I look like when I throw on the run. That was one of my strongest suits coming into college." - Mike Carmin, The Muncie Star Press

03/05/2013 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: The questions about Marve's knee come often. All he can do is answer. Usually, that is verbally, but on Friday he got to do so visually. "Everyone asks about it," he said, "because they have this image, I think. Then, they come out here and see me and I'm flowing normal, just like a game. Everyone said the same things during game 'Oh, he's not going to be OK.' But then I'm out there flowing normal." Marve came away from his Pro Day experience feeling good about his performance. He lifted, ran the 40 and did the agility drills, and he did each without a brace on his surgically repaired knee. "My knee feels fine," he said. "I mess around all the time and don't wear a brace unless I'm in a game and I kind of do that for the doctors, so they'll put me out there. I feel good, I feel strong and I'm going to continue my training." - Kyle Charters/Stacy Clardie, GoldandBlack.com

11/10/2012 - Paul Griggs drilled a 46-yard field goal as time expired and Purdue stunned Iowa 27-24 Saturday, snapping a five-game losing streak. Robert Marve threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns for the Boilermakers (4-6, 1-5 Big Ten), who won for the first time in Iowa City in 20 years. Purdue led 24-14 before Iowa (4-6, 2-4) rallied to tie the game with 3:32 left. But the Boilermakers stuffed the Hawkeyes on fourth down at the Purdue 35-yard line, and then drove 37 yards to set up the game-winning kick by Griggs. James Vandenberg had 190 yards passing and a TD for Iowa, which has lost four straight for the first time since 2007. - AP Sports

09/11/2012 - Purdue quarterback Robert Marve has re-torn the ACL in his left knee and will be out at least a few weeks. It's the third torn ACL of Marve's injury-riddled college career. ''It's significant enough to hold him out for a while,'' Purdue coach Danny Hope said Tuesday. Marve completed 11 of 18 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown against Notre Dame this past Saturday before being injured on a sack late in the fourth quarter of a 20-17 loss. Hope said he expects the sixth-year senior to try to play with a brace. ''It is torn, but we anticipate him making an attempt to come back and play this season,'' Hope said. It is possible that Marve's career is over. He was granted a sixth year of eligibility during the offseason, and with the injuries mounting, Hope understands that Marve might elect not to continue. ''A lot of that will be up to Robert,'' Hope said. ''He'll be out for at least a couple weeks, and then he'll have the option of whether he'll come back and play or not.'' Marve first injured the knee in the summer of 2009 after he transferred from Miami. He started the first four games of 2010 at Purdue before re-injuring the knee and missing the rest of the season. - AP Sports

09/11/2012 - Purdue quarterback Robert Marve is still awaiting MRI results on his injured left knee - two days after getting hurt against Notre Dame. A team spokesman said Monday there was no update on Marve. The injury drew immediate concern in West Lafayette because the sixth-year senior has already torn the ACL twice in the same knee. Marve's status for Saturday's home game against Eastern Michigan will remain unclear until those results come back. Marve competed with Caleb TerBush and Rob Henry for the starting job this summer, losing out to TerBush. But Marve started the season opener because TerBush was suspended. He rotated with TerBush last week against Notre Dame. Marve is 41 of 56 for 414 yards with four TDs, one interception and an efficiency rating of 155.3 this season. - AP Sports

09/11/2012 - Robert Marve, Purdue's oft-injured quarterback, has a torn ACL, but it might not end his season. The senior may be able to return later this year, the Lafayette Journal and Courier reported Tuesday. Marve already has experienced the agony of two previous ACL tears. He missed one season at Miami with the injury before transferring to Purdue and sitting out the 2009 season. In 2010, he played only four games for the Boilermakers before suffering a torn ACL. His recovery also kept him out of the first two games of the 2011 season. This season is Marve's last go-round in college football. An NCAA injury waiver afforded him a sixth year of eligibility. "We have our fingers crossed it's not as serious as it has been in the past and he can still come back and play this season," Purdue coach Danny Hope said on his weekly radio show. Marve started Purdue's opener against Eastern Kentucky and shared duties last week against Notre Dame with Caleb TerBush, who was suspended for the Boilermakers' first game. Rob Henry becomes Purdue's No. 2 quarterback behind TerBush and Austin Parker likely will be No. 3. - The Sports Xchange

09/10/2012 - Quarterback Robert Marve sustained an injury to the ACL ligament in his left knee during Saturday's loss to Notre Dame, coach Danny Hope said Monday night on his weekly radio show. Hope said the initial MRI reading revealed "there was some damage to the ACL, a potential tear if you will, but still not 100 percent sure of the final evaluation of it." Marve, a sixth-year senior, has suffered two ACL injuries to the same knee, most recently in 2010. "Anytime you've had a couple of ACL surgeries, your MRI can be a little muddy to read anyway," Hope said. "The extent of it we're not exactly sure yet. "Regardless of the extent of the injury, he would have a chance to come back and play this season. We have our fingers crossed it's not as serious as it has been in the past and he can still come back and play this season." Hope said he saw Marve earlier Monday and "he was walking OK." Marve has thrown for 414 yards in two games, completing 41 of 56 passes and four touchdowns. He threw for a career-high 295 yards and three touchdowns in the season opener against Eastern Kentucky. - Mike Carmin, Lafayette Journal and Courier

09/07/2012 - The only question many fans care about wasn't answered following Purdue's season opening 48-6 victory over Eastern Kentucky. Who is the starting quarterback next week at Notre Dame? The discussion comes into focus following the one-game suspension handed down by coach Danny Hope on Saturday to No. 1 quarterback Caleb TerBush for a violation of team rules. Robert Marve made his first start since Sept. 25, 2010 and proceeded to throw for 295 yards and three touchdowns as the Boilermakers overcame five turnovers to win going away at Ross-Ade Stadium. "We'll look and see how Robert played and we'll look and see how they practice throughout the course of the week," Hope said."We're not taking votes or anything right now." The luxury of having multiple quarterbacks who have made starts is they're available at the last minute. Purdue announced TerBush's suspension -- along with junior tight end Sterling Carter -- about an hour before kickoff. TerBush started all 13 games last season, but most fans are curious if the fifth-year senior remains at the top of the depth chart following Marve's performance, albeit against a Football Subdivision Championship program. "Caleb is one of us," Marve said. "We felt bad about the situation. We feel like us three are pretty solid for the team." Marve wasn't perfect but was effective. He threw an interception on the game's first drive and fumbled in the fourth quarter. However, the Tampa native completed 30 of 38 passes and hit Gary Bush, Antavian Edison and Gabe Holmes with touchdown passes. - The Sports Xchange

09/01/2012 - Robert Marve passed for a career-high 295 yards and matched a career best with three touchdowns to help Purdue defeat Eastern Kentucky 48-6 on Saturday in both teams' season opener. Marve started because previously declared starter Caleb TerBush was suspended one game for violating team rules. He hadn't thrown three touchdowns since 2008, when he was the starter at Miami. Akeem Shavers ran for 74 yards and O.J. Ross caught eight passes for 71 yards. Purdue gained 542 yards against coach Danny Hope's alma mater, where he was the head coach from 2003 to 2007. The Boilermakers held Football Championship Subdivision foe Eastern Kentucky to 190 yards and 10 first downs and forced four turnovers. Defensive tackle Kawann Short blocked a field goal and an extra point for the fifth and sixth blocked kicks of his career. Brooklyn Fox led Eastern Kentucky with two interceptions and a fumble recovery. Purdue next plays at Notre Dame on Saturday. - AP Sports
