Handsome Hour #122: Purdue Goes Bowling & Brohm Rumors
Our Boilermakers won the Bucket and earned Purdue their first bowl game in five years, and the Handsomes spend the first 15 minutes of this podcast talking Jeff Brohm rumors (2:30), the $5.9M buyout, Tennessee/Schiano/Jones, the hypothetical and shockingly reasonable pitch to Kevin Sumlin, coaching expectations, and the importance of infrastructure.
And oh yeah, we talk about the Bucket and a bowl (18:30), this coaching staff’s instant impact at Purdue, mandatory Holt praise, putting a Brohm contract extension and raise into national context (34:00), the Louisville threat, Purdue’s bowl game selection (51:00), and relive Purdue’s Oaken Bucket victory vs Indiana (55:30).
Our #HandsomeHour reader questions this week (1:04:30): basketball vs football contention, Matt Painter national title and the Doomsday Clock, Tennessee’s moral “high ground”, how long Brohm’s Purdue tenure will be and if/when Purdue football will be ranked under Brohm, and quick Battle 4 Atlantis thoughts.
All that, plus a Christmas carol for IU fans, Leroy Keyes, how to successfully ditch your family for a bowl game, Tony Levine/Rice & Holt’s prospects, Ed Orgeron becoming his own interim coach, and NOBODY COMES INTO ROSS ADE.
