Tomorrow the Jeff Brohm era kicks off in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium and we’re all excited to see if Jeff Brohm can clean up the mess left for him. It is going to be a long, hard road back, but at least we should look good for the journey. Thanks to Katie George on Twitter we now have a look at a new helmet style Purdue will be using tomorrow from the locker for David Blough:
The action P on the helmet is different. It has a new border that showcases the gold as opposed to a previous silver border. It seems to be a different shade of black (if such a thing exists).

Update: It looks like the change is mostly a branding issue:
