The good news is that we will have a Brohm coaching on Saturday. The bad news is that it will be Brian Brohm and not Jeff Brohm. Due to Jeff’s positive COVID-19 test his brother Brian has been named acting head coach on Saturday:

Brian Brohm has been on staff with older brother Jeff during his entire tenure at Purdue as Co-Offensive Coordinator and QB coach, so the continuity should help despite defensive coordinator Bob Diaco already having head coaching experience. As recently as 2015 he was playing professionally with he Winnipeg Blue Bombers, where in 2014 he was even a teammate of former Purdue QB Robert Marve.

I like the continuity here, as Purdue under Jeff Brohm has been offense first and that is where Brian has been working. The defense can be fine with a former head coach in Diaco directing them. It was Brian Brohm’s offense that beat Iowa in 2017 and 2018 anyway.

Just five days until kickoff. Hopefully we make it.

As for Jeff:
