Handsome Hour #124: Year 1 of the Brohm Era at Purdue
The Boiled Sports Handsomes – J Money, Boilerdowd, and Aneesh – reflect on Jeff Brohm’s unpredictable and fun first year at the helm of Purdue football. J Money talks about going to the Foster Farms Bowl in Santa Clara (3:00) and the Boilermakers’ crazy win over Arizona, the ever-changing expectations of this year (6:00) and how good Brohm’s coaching staff has been, and go game-by-game through 2017 Purdue’s “Perfect 7-6 Season” (14:00).
We also talk about how Purdue’s close losses to Rutgers and Nebraska bought an extra Boilermaker year for Brohm and how many wins we’d need in 2018 to be OK with Brohm being hired away (26:00), and the emotional roller-coaster of Purdue’s 2017 year with Joe Tiller’s death (40:00).
We also take listener questions (45:00): our favorite trick plays, placing 5th in the college football playoff rankings, our South End Zone ideas, next year’s quarterback situation (56:00), what we would give up for a Purdue football national championship, 2018’s schedule, replacing “Shout”, and whether 2018 football or 2018/2019 basketball will be ranked higher.
