Finally, we have news

Coach Jeff Brohm has turned down Louisville and is staying in West Lafayette per the Lafayette Journal & Courier). For the second straight year Purdue has dodged a bullet of another school coming after our coach and survived. While last year it turned out he was never really close to going to Tennessee, this year it was Louisville: his alma mater.

I understand this was a tough decision, but coach Brohm has received a ton of support from Purdue’s administration in terms of finances and facilities. It is, indeed, a different time in West Lafayette with Mike Bobinski in charge, and Bobinski deserves a ton of credit for keeping this rebuild going.

With this past we can now focus on the bowl game and building for 2019. Just three weeks from today Purdue will sign its first top 25 recruiting class in over 15 years. That class has the potential to be a real game-changer because of the influx of talent it is bringing in. We might even be able to land David Bell now too as another great receiver.

But for now, that is all in the future. Relax, Purdue fans. We made it.
