Purdue’s Cashé Quiroga placed third at the 133 pound weight class. Purdue sent four more to the podium. Braden Atwood,197, placed sixth, while Camden Eppert and Danny Sabatello placed eighth at 125 and 141 pounds, respectively. Quiroga and Atwood both earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Wrestling Championship which begins on March 20, 2014.
I spent the last week with the Purdue Wrestling team documenting their preparation for the Big Ten Championships in Madison, Wis., and here is my photo story from the adventure.
FISHERFOLK - NEW ENGLAND
The hardihood of the fisherfolk and the sailors is still evident, and the mores of an insular colony remain constant. Manhood, for instance, is determined not by legal age but by the first fishing trip. When a stripling passes this initiation, he takes to smoking a corncob pipe and is recognized as a man, no matter what his age.

A real sight to see
Make it a work of art
A real masterpiece
Don’t forget my dear companion
Put someone who loves me by my side ❞
O the wild charge they made
All the world wonder’d.
Honour the charge they made! ❞
