Dan Persa "Questionable" For Season Opener Vs. Boston College

And the Pat Fitzgerald Jedi mind tricks continue.

Northwestern typically releases its weekly report and depth chart on Thursdays at 2pm. At 6 today, the program published a release that said quarterback Dan Persa is questionable. So what does this actually mean? Let's ask the Sippin' On Purple crew:

"I HAVE NO CLUE. I HAVE NO CLUE. I don't know if it means he's actually questionable, if this is all some sick joke from the NU medical staff, if anything means anything or if our lives are just a pathetic search for meaning in a world without one."

Oh, well, OK then.

When asked about whether Persa will play this weekend, coach Pat Fitzgerald continues to be coy with the media:

"If he's ready to go, he'll start. If he's not, he won't. He keeps improving every day. ... We'll see how things go and progress throughout the course of the week. Like I said, I think, 1,000,432 times, he's a guy that's going to do everything he can in his power to get healthy and get ready to play."

Thanks for the clarification, Fitz. Must have missed your 1,000,431st statement on the status of Persa earlier this week.

In actual Northwestern injury news, DT Brian Arnfelt (foot), DB Mike Bolden (leg), S Jared Carpenter (wrist), LB Collin Ellis (hand), LB Roderick Goodlow (leg) and WR Tony Jones (leg) are all out for Saturday's game. But before you go getting your hopes up, note that of those seven players, only one -- backup safety Mike Bolden -- was listed on this week's two-deep roster.
