Looks like U.K. Will have a good year

 

 Wonder how Jeff Brohm will do at Purdue and Tom Allen will do at IU

I think UK has a solid shot at 8 or 9 wins. 

 

It'll probably take Brohm a few years to get anything going at Purdue. Allen should do a solid job at IU I think.

Florida has been going this route for awhile now

They've been needing a QB for quite a while. Malik is very talented, he may be the guy. We will see.

Their 2016 QB was a Purdue Grad Transfer

I'm an IU fan so I hate Purdue with a passion. I'm actually really excited for the season. IU opens against Ohio State on opening Thursday. Going against their new OC Kevin Wilson. That'll be interesting. And it's nice that I can finally trust the defense for once in my lifetime

He did a pretty solid job at WKU.

I definitely plan on watching that game. Should be interesting. IU may just pull it off. An improved IU defense and early season games are always pretty wild.

IU might have a chance

IU usually plays Ohio State well no matter where it's at. That's the thing with IU football though. They always come close but never get it done

I hope IU does win that one. Meyer is a great coach but I have never really cared much for him honestly. 

It's funny you say that. Dan Dakich constantly says that Urban Meyer would've been the coach at IU had they pursued him. He's a great coach but I wouldn't take anyone before Nick Saban

I think Brohm will do good things. May take a few years IMO because talent level is pretty bad right now. But if he can turn WKU into a solid team, I can't see why he can't do it at Purdue.

The only that I hesitate about is Brohm's ties to Louisville

Purdue and Cubs here too. And then there's the Kentucky fan in this thread too. Man

Purdue and Cubs fan? Holy crap

You're an IU and White Sox fan right? Seems we're opposites, you and I, lol!

 

I actually don't dislike the White Sox, but I do hate IU, and my sister graduated from there, haven't talked to her since, lol, jk.

I do dislike the Cubs lol. But I know when a team is good and that team is good. What do you think about Purdue for this upcoming season?

I'm hoping for a turnaround, but like when Epstein took over the Cubs, Brohms got some work to do! Purdue also has a new Athletic Director, Mike Bobinski, so after the last 2 coaches and years of suck, I think we will see some gradual success. Would love to see them go back to the Drew Brees glory days!!!! Just going to try and be patient....

 

 I am mainly a Purdue fan due to having lived in Lafayette and worked in West Lafayette for a good portion of my life. I also have a few family members who have graduated from Purdue. I also always try and support my local teams.

Optimism can be a good thing, but it often gets in the way of clear thinking which is obviously the case here.

 

Just picking on you!

I like how Bobinski handled the firing/ hiring process.  Took his time, all the talk about PJ Fleck and Miles, both of whom I am actually glad we don't have, and then to get Brohm I think was a good move.  I think he has a good plan and good contacts.  We will see..... fingers crossed.

I always liked Ohio States Jim Tressel. He was a great coach, sad his career at Ohio ended the way it did. For a while I kind of hoped he would become the Colts next coach when he was working for them. If he was still coaching I would have also loved if Purdue would have hired him. He is a university president now at Youngstown State, so I'm sure he's doing fine.

I believe he was banned from coaching in CFB until this year. I wonder if someone goes after him next year.

    • I don't believe this hogwash for a second.....he sounds like a bitter young man angry about not getting offered the money he thinks he's worth.   The class and dignity this organization has shown from top to bottom with the McDaniels incident alone tells me this is utter nonsense.
    • Yeah the Cubs hadn't won a WS in 108 years and everyone loved us outside of our fanbase until that happened. Everyone said the Cubs had the most loyal fans to put up with years of losing. Once the Cubs won it all, now everyone outside of our fanbase hates us and thinks Cubs fans are bandwagon fans . Funniest thing ever.  
    • Oh for sure they’re annoying. But they got 1 Super Bowl in 50 years. I’ll just let em enjoy it. Plus I always find rowdy celebrations that may or may not involve the consumption of horse crap to be hilarious  
    • I know I’m being unreasonable and they do deserve credit, but Eagles fans are the worst. I’m glad they beat the Pats but they are my second most hated team (after the Pats). 
    • "Two months into the 2018 NFL league year, Eric Reid, Tre Boston and Kenny Vaccaro remain unemployed, while their peers, Morgan Burnett, Tyrann Mathieu, Kurt Coleman and Marcus Gilchrist, were signed within the first week of free agency. Only Burnett and Matheiu were considered better players than Reid, Boston and Vaccaro by most outlets that published free agent rankings."
        "The 2018 NFL draft was also considered a good safety draft, a fact some used to explain why Reid struggled to garner any interest early in free agency. But only three safeties were drafted in the first two rounds of the 2018 draft. It wasn’t nearly as deep as the last year’s draft, which had no effect on the free agent safety market.   For whatever reason, this year is different. Really different. At least for Reid, Vaccaro and Boston. The other big free agents at the position found work quickly. Coincidently (or maybe not), the other big free agents haven’t been involved in anthem protests.  ( http://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/264431/nfl-players-who-protested-during-national-anthem-in-week-17 ) And if they have, there is no public record of it happening. ESPN.com kept a running log of players who protested during the 2017 season...
