Purdue Football Half-Time Show Turns Into Tribute To Mitch Daniels
It's not often that a college football half-time show pays tribute to a university's president, but that's precisely what the Purdue All American marching band did during the half-time show of the Purdue versus Notre Dame game this weekend in West Lafayette. As the band spelled out "Mitch" on the field, Purdue President Mitch Daniels rode his Harley-Davidson motorcycle onto the field. This weekend marked the grand opening of the U.S. 231 bypass around West Lafayette that was financed by former Gov. Daniels' Major Moves program that made $3.8 billion in transportation spending available from the 75-year lease of the Indiana Toll Road.
